WARNING: IF A DIAMOND LOOKS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE IT IS PROBABLY BECAUSE IT IS! If it is too cheap it can’t be real.
*OUR DIAMONDS are genuine natural diamonds and WHEN THEY HAVE BEEN TREATED WE WILL INFORM YOU.
*MANY SELLERS ARE SELLING COATED diamonds - these have been coated with chemicals to improve the quality of poor rough and make them look shiny; we can easily spot them.
*SOME ARE GLASS FILLED DIAMONDS -with very little diamond in them. They will all pass tests with amateur diamond testing equipment because they contain some diamond. Please be warned. They are charging far less that the real thing would cost to purchase on the wholesale market.
You will only pay post once for up to 15 items that can be shipped together - even if they are purchased in different transactions. Any excess post will be refunded - so if you make multiple transactions that can be shipped together and pay post again and again that postal money will be refunded.
PLEASE NOTE ALL ITEMS WILL BE SENT BY TRACKED POST AND YOU WILL BE SENT A TRACKING NUMBER.
THE POSTAL INSURANCE FOR TRACKED POST IS OPTIONAL BUT SERIOUSLY RECOMMENDED. Be assured we make no profits from our postal charges as post costs from the UK are very very high. You can check on Royalmail.co.uk. Many thanks

South America or Mexico or Any Middle Eastern State. This is because too many items have gone missing to these destinations.

If we have included free tracked shipping in the price of an item and you decide to return that item, and there is no fault on our part - we will deduct the cost of the shipping at the time of refund. The standard cost of tracked post is $14.95 standard shipping plus $4 insurance. So $14.95 will be deducted plus any insurance paid. 10. Please note - if you wish to return an item please inform us prior to doing so, so that we can give you precise instructions on how to send it. All items must be returned by a 'signed for' service. We will not sign for parcels we are not expecting and they will be returned to you by the post office. Prior to signing for a parcel we will open it to check the contents are acceptable to a refund or exchange. This is for reasons of Mail fraud.
ShangrilaGems Responsible Sourcing
All our gems are Responsibly sourced. We know the country they come from and the specific mine. Our diamonds are all sourced from Botswana from the Jwaneng mine. The largest diamond mine in the world. Botswana upholds extremely high mining standards; No diamonds are conflict diamonds or blood diamonds. We cut these diamond in our own family run factory in Surat, India and there is no child labor. The staff are paid well and the conditions are good and the staff are well trained and looked after and are content and happy. We are cautious to use the word ‘ethical’ for gems or diamonds as in our experience ‘ethical’ means different things to different people. ETHICAL IS A SEVERELY ABUSED TERM.
