We finish gemstones as we estimated sizes in product descriptions with our estimated shape and cut, if you give custom designs, weight may vary than expected.
Estimated cutting weights of Rough Stones
Estimating the gemstone before cutting is very hard and risky. We get the minimum rate of estimation to reduce the risk. 98% of gemstones can be finished with estimated sizes according to our business experience and knowledge. But, We hope better understanding from customers about the other 2% of failures estimations and we always try to recover it from adding more gemstones with the order.

We do not use the standard registered post service when the EMS service is available. because it takes a long time from 7-14 days to 25 days or in some cases more than 30 days. However, we use this service in cases where the ems service has been suspended due to various problematic situations in different countries. ( In some countries, for example, the EMS service was not active during epidemics such as covid 19 ). In such cases, the customer can pay the shipping fee and get the FedEx service and in the absence of both the FedEx service or the EMS service, this service can be used.
