How We Calculate Postage
In order to calculate a final postage, we have our actual transit costs to cover plus additional insurance costs
Standard Delivery (Royal Mail 2nd Class) is only available for orders with a value below £60:
<1000 grams = £3.50
1000-2000 grams = £6.00
2000-10000 grams = £15
10000-20000 grams = £22
Special Delivery (before 1pm next day)
<1000 grams = £9
1000-2000 grams = £11
2000-10000 grams = £26.6
10000-20000 grams = £41.2
We only ship international parcels that weight less than 2kg and below £15,000. We will split your order down into separate parcels to fulfil your order.
Order up to £15,000
<1000 grams = £15
1000-2000 grams = £20
Orders over £15,000 will be split down into 2kg parcels or a number of parcels worth less than £15,000. The calculation which results in the fewest number of parcels will be used.
We offer fully insured delivery on all special delivery options. We do need to pass on the cost of this insurance as it soon adds up shipping high value gold and silver products.
Orders < £1000 there is no additional fee
Orders > £1000 we charge a fee to cover the increasing costs of insurance. For every £1000 we apply a £1 fee.
Example Orders with Postage
Gold products worth £2350 and weighing 125 grams with packaging
Postage = £9
Insurance = £2
Total = £11
Silver products worth £1500 and weighing 2500 grams with packaging
Postage = £26.6
Insurance = £1
Total = £27.6
Countries We Ship To

Malaysia - we will ship if you as the customer takes responsibility for it and signs a declaration
