Precious by Kate is happy to announce that we are open and still shipping orders daily at this time. Please allow for additional processing and shipping time due to the current COVID-19 climate. The postal service has currently suspended international shipments to certain countries listed here. According to the WHO, "The likelihood of an infected person contaminating commercial goods is low and the risk of catching the virus that causes COVID-19 from a package that has been moved, travelled, and exposed to different conditions and temperature is also low." Our team is taking all safety precautions when handling jewelry and packaging as well. We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely, and will post any updates here.
100% CARBON OFFSETTING
We now offset 100% of our carbon emissions. This means that for any carbon emissions released into the atmosphere as a result from shipping our Precious items to you, we will balance it out by funding verified environmental projects. This will not come at an extra cost to any of our customers, and is simply another great thing about shopping on Precious. Let's all work together towards positive change.
