Morning all,

I have found a diamond that I love and want to purchase however the company is in the US and doesn’t post to Australia.

how can I get this diamond to Australia?? Is there a company in the US that will get this diamond for me and send it to me? Or is there anyone on price scope that offers this service?

thanks guys

I shipped a diamond ring to the US last year (I'm in Australia) and as Australia Post would do it as it was over $2000AUD in value I used DHL. It was super quick and easy. The in the US seller would probably have to organise it, but it was fairly straightforward.

There are many proxy shopping services that will send the diamond on to you in Australia (they lend you a US address for domestic postage) on your behalf but you'd have to find the one that will ship items of a certain value, and can assist with customs forms. Australia Post do have ShopMate but I found their fees too high for small value items but could be worthwhile for diamonds. Just have to check what they will or won't accept: https://shopmate.auspost.com.au/

Don't use Australia Post or any EMS service that deals with them atm...it will take ages.

Get a DHL account and give them your account number. They will call DHL and book a pickup, you will pay for the shipping later to DHL. DHL will lodge this with customs too if over $1000AU, you will pay 10% GST, an $88 fee and a $20 fee. If it is a loose diamond, there will be no duty. If it is set in a ring, 5%.

Feel free to reach out if you need assistance.

@Eeveepenny Did you work out a solution? I am in the same boat potentially. A vendor that has a stone I like doesn't have a physical address (so drop-ships I guess) so I can't send DHL or FedEx out to them. I'm about to look into some proxy shopping services.
