Importer Of Record
When ordering from MDCDiamonds, the recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country. Title and risk of loss for items ordered will transfer to the recipient upon delivery to the common carrier in the United States.
Prior to delivery to the recipient, the shipment may be subject to the customs fees, import duties, taxes, and other charges of the destination country. These charges are always the recipient's responsibility. For further details, read about Customs, Duties and Taxes.
All international orders will be shipped, with no additional charge, via FedEx. Please note that the arrival times listed on the Web site apply to U.S. shipping addresses only. Estimates of the international shipping delivery times can be provided by one of our diamond and jewelry consultants at Help@MDCDiamonds.com or +1-866-239-4315.
Shipping Insurance (or asset protection) will be provided by a premier global insurance company for orders shipped internationally. A fee of 1% of the value of your order will be applied during the checkout process. This insurance protects your order from the time it leaves MDC Diamonds to when it arrives at your door. This policy is an agreement between the customer and the insurance company. Details about the insurance company and claims process will be provided to you, following your purchase, in your order confirmation email.
Orders must have a minimum retail list price of $750 USD and all payment transactions will occur in U.S. dollars. The use of gift certificates and promotional discounts are not valid on international orders at this time.
For orders shipping to: Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, Switzerland and Taiwan, we offer the following payment methods:
Credit card: Use your Visa, MasterCard, Diners Club, American Express, or Discover card.
Bank Wire: Arrange payment through your bank and receive a 1.5% discount. Bank wire payments are accepted on orders of $750 USD or more. The bank wire discount is applied before the shipping insurance charge is added.
Other payment methods: PayPal or Google Checkout.
For orders shipping to China, payment must be made using bank wire.
Customs Duties & Taxes
The customs office of the destination country may impose customs fees, import duties, taxes, and other charges to your international order. These additional charges required for customs clearance are the responsibility of the recipient. These charges and the customs policies vary widely from country to country. MDC Diamonds has no control over these charges and cannot provide any estimates for fees expected. Please contact your local customs office for further details.
Please note that products shipped internationally may not be designed in accordance with destination country standards, specifications, and labeling requirements. The customer is responsible for determining that products can be lawfully and legally imported into the destination country.
Please note that international shipments are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities. Additionally, information about your order, shipment and products contained therein may be communicated to our shippers and the customs authorities as part of the customs clearance process.
To help ensure you make the right choice, we offer a very flexible return policy. If for any reason you are not satisfied, you can return any item without custom engraving in its original condition within 30 days of the date of shipment for a refund or an exchange.
