Lotus Diamonds currently accepts PayPal or bank wire payments from our international customers outside of the US, Canada, the UK, and Australia. Bank wire payments are only accepted on orders of $500 USD or more. You may arrange payment through your bank. All international bank wires are subject to a $35 processing fee by Lotus Diamonds.
For international bank wire orders, after you place your order a customer service representative will give you the account information you will need to provide to your bank in order to transfer funds from your account directly to a Lotus Diamonds account. It may take a few days for your bank to process the bank wire. Once your bank has transferred the funds, Lotus Diamonds is immediately notified and your purchase is processed. Please note an ACH transfer is not the same as a wire transfer. At this time, Lotus Diamonds does not accept ACH transfers.
If you have any questions about the process involved in a bank wire, we recommend you confer with you bank or contact your local Lotus Diamonds customer service representative.

At Lotus Diamonds, we take pride that our jewelry is produced with the highest standards of quality and excellence. In order to make sure you are completely satisfied with your Lotus Diamonds purchase, we offer a very flexible 30 day return policy. For orders shipped internationally, we cannot offer ring resizing since taxes are levied every time a jewelry item crosses the border.
