Shipping and Production

Shipping and Production

Here at Blooming Lotus Jewelry, every piece is handmade which requires extra time. Below is a good estimation of what to expect with production and shipping. 

Upon checkout, there will be several options for shipping that you can select.  If you need your order expedited, please email us and we can upgrade your order to a faster method and let you know what that charge is and invoice you.

COVID-19 Alert

    As we all know, COVID-19 has affected so much, and shipping carriers are one of them. 
    • USPS + COVID: Please note that USPS is still experiencing occasional delays that can be a couple of days up to several weeks.  USPS may also be inconsistent with package scans during this time.  Days may go by where an "acceptance" scan or arrival/departure scans from USPS hubs are not made.  This does not mean that your package is not moving within the USPS system.  Any USPS delays or lack of package scans are out of our control.

    • FedEx + COVID: FedEx has been extremely reliable during the entire pandemic.  This means they are the most reliable for transit times (2 days within the US) and package scans.  Delays are extremely rare.  If you want peace of mind and a quick transit time, please select FedEx.  You will be amazed at how fast you'll be unboxing your jewelry!

    Production Time

    • Please allow 3-5 business days for your order to be made.
    • Note: Dates are approximate.  During peak times such as holidays or sales, this production time may increase.  We always try to process and ship orders as soon as possible.

    Shipping Options

    • We ship via USPS or FedEx. 
    • Deliveries occur Monday - Saturday, no deliveries on Sundays.
    • FedEx does not deliver to PO Boxes.
    • International FedEx.  If you are located in an area that is outside their normal service area, there may be an added out of delivery surcharge.  This is rare, but we will contact you if your address is affected.  You will have the option to pay the FedEx surcharge or switch to USPS.
