More information about our shipping policies.

The tracking on my order says that it has been delivered and it has not been?

If your tracking number shows that your parcel has been delivered but you have not received it, we suggest that you do the following:

  • Verify that the order shipping address is correct
  • Look for an attempted delivery notice slip from your postal service
  • Double check your deck, entry, etc for where it may have been left in a discrete or ‘hidden’ place.
  • Check with your neighbours or others in the residence to see if they accepted the parcel.
  • Allow another 1-2 to pass … in rare cases, postal services mark an item delivered before it actually arrives at the address.

If your parcel still does not arrive after all these efforts, please contact A Pocket of Posies and we will try to track down your parcel.

Do I have to pay VAT - Customs Duties and Import Taxes?

Buyers are responsible for any and all customs duties and import taxes that may apply on entry into your country. These fees are calculated by your country when your item(s) arrive in your country. They will be collected upon delivery from the postal service. These are not ‘shipping fees’.

VAT - UK customers Buyers in the UK may receive a notice for collection of customs duty fees/import taxes that are calculated by your countries customs for items imported. Unfortunately, these fees can be very high and are charged to residents of the UK on items you import into your country. Your customs may also charge a 'service fee' for collecting these duties and taxes.

How do I care for my gold/silver plated jewelry?

Gold/Rose Gold/Silver Plated Jewelry Info and Care

Plated jewelry pieces are comprised of a gold or silver layer bonded to a brass structure. Due to this process, it is normal for the plating to fade over time. Many factors affect the rate at which the plating fades. It can be caused by the frequency of wearing, acidity of your skin, and activities you participate in while wearing the jewelry.

To keep your jewelry sparkling and to minimize signs of wear avoid having the jewelry contact water; remove before showering or swimming. Avoid contact with perfumes, lotions, sunscreens or any other chemicals. After wearing your jewelry, clean it with a dry cloth and store it in a cool, dry place.
