Royal Mail Free U.K Postage
We use a free ‘Royal Mail Special Delivery service within the UK. This is a secure postal service and provides next day delivery and will require a signature upon receipt.
This is a fully trackable service.
The order will be dispatched using 1st class Royal Mail Special delivery.
As mentioned above, the parcel will need a signature to confirm receipt. If no one is home, Royal Mail will leave an Attempted Delivery Card so you can arrange either a redelivery or collect from your nearest post office collection point.
Although we offer a FREE DELIVERY service for purchases in the UK, please note that next day delivery is from the date of dispatch, NOT the date the order is received as the jewellery will need to be made to fulfil your order.
The jewellery will need time to be made (usually 7 to 10 working days) to meet the order.
You will receive a confirmation email when your order has been finished and dispatched.
Postage – International
All items are sent via Royal Mail International Tracked & Signed service.
The INTERNATIONAL postage cost is £15.00 per order.

Also, note – parcels sent to countries are at the discretion of Carol Clift Design and may not be included in our list. It is advisable to email first to check which countries are listed.

Lost and Late deliveries
If your delivery has been delayed, then please contact us and we will provide you with the tracking number to enable you to locate it with Royal Mail.

International delivery – When items are sent to another country, your parcel is often handled by more than one postal service. When we send a parcel abroad, the actual delivery of the item will be the responsibility of the postal service in the country the items are going to. Delays can often be caused by customs checks, which can sometimes take up to 1-2 weeks.
