Delivery and Shipping

How long after my order will I have to wait for my bracelet?

Most Jewels and Lace items are handcrafted by our team as orders come in. Depending on volume, we generally take about 1-3 business days to fulfill your order. Once your order is made, checked for final quality and packaged, we send your order out as per your selected shipping choice. During peak periods, your order could take 4-5 working days until it is dispatched. We do appreciate your patience and understanding during these busy periods.

If your order requires clarifications or customisations, this can also cause order delay. We will contact you by email as soon as we can if we need more information.

Courier Delivery To Main Areas:

1. What is a main area?

A main area is generally where our courier has a depot or delivery hub in or around the area. If you are based in a remote area, in a township or on a farm/plot or an area that is quite a distance from a main city or town, chances are you are not based in a main area that our courier services.

2. Where are the main areas you deliver by courier to?

Greater Johannesburg and Pretoria, Bloemfontein, Harrismith, Cape Town, Durban, Port Shepstone, Richards Bay, Pietermaritzburg, East London, George, Kimberley, Ladysmith, Nelspruit, Pietersburg, Port Elizabeth, Paarl, Stellenbosch, Mossel Bay, George, Plettenberg Bay, Welkom, Witbank, Vereeniging, Vaal, Potchefstroom, Klerksdorp, Westonaria, Randfontein, Polokwane, Brits, Rustenburg, Hartbeespoort.

We deliver by courier to your door for FREE for all orders over R500

4. So I’ve received an email that says my item has shipped, yay!!! How long will delivery take?

Our courier gives 2 to 4 working days to main areas as an estimated delivery time. Working days do not include the weekend or public holidays and when your order is shipped on a Friday, it generally means your package is only processed on the Monday by the courier service.  Our courier delivers during business hours (no weekends or public holidays) so please select your delivery address accordingly. Please ensure that either yourself or an authorised person is available to sign for your parcel. Please note that we search all addresses on Google Maps before sending out your order. If your address can’t be found on Google Maps, then it can’t be delivered.

5. Is there a tracking number so I can track my order?

Yes, we will provide a tracking number when your parcel is ready to be collected by our courier.

6. I need the order rushed for a birthday/ a gift for a friend/ I am moving, is this possible?

We always try to accommodate our customers. Depending on the volume of orders and location of delivery, we will have to assess any special rush orders on a case by case basis. Send and email to us at info@jewelsandlace.co.za and we will respond as soon as possible. Please acknowledge that these requests cannot always be guaranteed.

7. My parcel was sent to my nearest Post Office counter and has not yet been delivered.

This is an area where our courier does not have a depot or delivery hub in or around the area. If you are based in a remote area, in a township or on a farm/plot or an area that is quite a distance from a main city or town, chances are you are situated in an outlying, regional, rural, remote or township area that our courier does not generally service. If you are not sure if your area is a Outlying/Regional area, please so enquire with us and we will let you know 🙂
