Regulation for shipping jewellery in the mail

Is it legal to ship jewellery? It depends on the regulations for shipping jewellery and other valuables of each courier company and each country. The rules about shipping jewellery internationally, even for businesses, depending on the materials the item is made of and if it is considered a valuable or luxury item. Valuable jewellery is prohibited to ship if it contains special metals and stones. Some countries only restrict the shipping of jewellery over a determinate price point. Make sure you check the specific regulations before booking a service to ship jewellery in the mail. The regulations for shipping costume jewellery are usually much less restrictive.

Non-valuable accessories will be covered by insurance when the costume jewellery or accessories are packed properly. For valuable jewellery, the insurance will not apply because these items are included on the prohibited items list. Therefore, individuals who decide to ship jewellery items are doing so at their own risk.
