25karats.com offers shipping and insurance for customers residing outside the United States for a flat fee of $75.

Shipping to APO, FPO & DPO Addresses


Due to APO & FPO orders being processed through the military postal service shipping may take a bit more time to arrive. All 25karats.com shipments are sent through the USPS system, and are drop shipped to a military postal service known as an APO or FPO within 3-5 business days. From that point on, we depend on the military postal service to deliver the package to you in a timely manner. We cannot specify a delivery date. Shipments to any APO/FPO/DPO also cannot be tracked online because of security reasons. APO/FPO customers can however check with their service to find out the exact status of shipment.

The proper format for a military address is to enter APO (Army Post Office) or FPO (Fleet Post Office) or DPO (Diplomatic Post Office) in the city field, along with "AE" (mail going to Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and portions of Canada), "AP" (the Pacific) and "AA" (for the Americas and portions of Canada) in the state field.

Alternate Shipping Addresses


25karats.com allows you to place orders and ship it to a destination that is different from your billing address. However, we require that you have that shipping address on file with the credit card company.
Alternatively, we can also arrange to have your package shipped to a local FedEx station for pick-up. You may call our offices at any time for assistance locating the nearest FedEx facility.

The total delivery time is the time we get your order manufactured plus the shipping time.
