Oversize items may incur additional charges. We cannot ship non-jewelry items such as handbags and coats. Please arrange for your own shipping if your purchase is not a jewelry item. These shipping firms pick up frequently at each Skinner gallery and have provided our clients with swift, efficient and economical services.

Skinner ships Fine Jewelry only within the United States.

You must make your own arrangements to ship Fine Jewelry internationally. We work with a group of shipping firms who have provided Skinner clients with swift, efficient, and economical services. View the list of shipping firms.

Please keep in mind that jewelry sent internationally can only be insured for $500 or less, and certain countries restrict jewelry imports. Contact the shipping agent directly regarding international shipping.

Items left unclaimed for more than three business days may be subject to additional storage and handling fees. See the Skinner Conditions of Sale for more details. All packing, handling, and shipping is at the sole risk of the buyer. Skinner, Inc. is not responsible for any loss or damage to items during packing and shipping. The buyer must pay in advance for all packaging expenses, including labor, materials, postage and carrier fees, and all insurance charges.
