Shipping & Tracking
There are two reasons for the 10 -15 day from purchase to order completion/arrival timeline. Your patience is valued and your order is important to us.
- High volume with shipment of over 250 pieces a week with required time to locate all of these items in the inventory and prepare for shipment.
- The time frame for product to arrive from Paparazzi or in rare instances, shipment to replace a defective piece.
Note that shipping is 95% of the time within 3-5 days. Gem box is proud of the ability to ship quickly with high volume, however, the 10 processing baseline is to ensure all orders are within the stated shipping times. Please be patient and realize our shipping is FASTER than most Consultants who ship at our level of volume. We are so proud of Gem Box and work hard to make sure customers love Gem Box too! Shop with confidence - Your order is on its way, timely, safe, and accurate!
Orders begin the processing timeline as soon as it is received in our system and will ship as reflected in the stated processing/shipping time. You will receive an order confirmation stating your payment has been received and your order is in our queue. Orders are not processed chronologically due to ebb and flow of product.
💋 Why do you take 10 days to fill an order - especially if your items are in stock on your website?
Each order takes time for us to personally find the item in our inventory, combine it with any other items, double check for quality and accuracy, and prepare for shipment.
💋 What if I only bought items ONLY on your Live? When does it ship?
💋 I bought something from your website but I don't know if it's in stock or not- when will it ship?
If the item is available on the website, it is in stock and must be located and prepared for shipment.
💋 Why do Live orders ship faster?
If you claim items ONLY on a live, they go straight into preparation for shipment, which means there is no need to further locate items to complete your order. It is fast, efficient, and easy. If you want jewelry FAST - watch Tianne live on Facebook Tues/Thurs 5pm MST HERE.
💋 I claimed items from NEW RELEASES on Facebook AND also claimed items from a LIVE video- when will my order ship?
If you order contains items that are NEW RELEASES these items require 5-7 days to arrive to us and additional time prepare your order for shipment.
💋 How will I know my order shipped?
Once payment for your order is processed, you will receive a confirmation email. Once your order has shipped, you will receive tracking info via email. Please ensure you check junk & spam folders.
Note: As your tracking will be given via email, queries regarding tracking will be redirected to the FAQ for your convenience.
💋 How do I qualify for FREE SHIPPING on your website?

When your invoice is created if your total reaches $75, the discount is automatically applied. Whereas your website order requires the promo code to receive the free shipping discount.

💋 You said it would ship in 10 days....it's been longer. Now what?
We ship quickly and often well within the 10 day window however, delays do occur. This is rare and is likely due to requiring product arrival or replacement. We are proud of our high volume and quick turnaround and will ship your order as soon as possible. If a delay occurs, please respond to us with courtesy via email at info@gemboxaccessories to receive information regarding your order.

Our billing cycle for album items such as Bombs Away and NEW RELEASES begins Saturday and closes the upcoming Thursday at 8pm MST. All of your album item choices from that week will be combined into ONE invoice emailed on that upcoming Friday evening. As this can be a lengthy process, your patience is appreciated.

LIVE items claimed do not have a billing cycle as they invoice immediately following the broadcast.
Our CEO and founder, Tianne personally packages each order. We take pride in our fast shipment, boutique-quality packaging, and excellent customer service.

Discounts, Giveaways, Hostess Rewards, Loyalty Rewards, & Shop Credits
💋 I won something in a giveaway! How do I redeem my prize?
Congratulations! If the prize is a giveaway item - it will be mailed to you free of cost. If you have a pending invoice, it will be shipped with that invoice. Examples of prizes offered are: FriYay VIP Group Giveaway, $100 Prize Pack, and flash Giveaways. You will be notified via email that your prize has shipped.

💋 I have a Discount/Loyalty Reward/Shop Credit...i.e. a FREE PIECE - How do I use it?
All offers are emailed to you as a promo code and can be redeemed at www.gemboxaccessories.com only. Please follow instructions given in the email to redeem. No substitutions are implied or available.
NOTE: Your discount will not appear until you reach the final checkout/payment window.
💋 Can I have Discount/LoyaltyReward/Shop Credit...i.e. FREE PIECE applied to my invoice?
All offers are redeemed at www.gemboxaccessories.com only. These are offered as a courtesy and your understanding is appreciated.
💋 Why are offers only given as links to use on your website?
To provide the flexibility of selecting item(s) of your choice and at a time most convenient for you, we offer promo codes to redeem at your leisure.
💋 Do offers expire?
Great news! Offers do not expire. Limited time use codes will be clearly stated (i.e. free shipping over a weekend) as to when they expire and cannot be retroactively applied.
💋 Can I lose my offer?
Defaulting on an invoice for Code of Conduct or Non-Payment will forfeit all implied, accrued, or intended rewards. We reserve the right to cancel or revoke any promo code without explanation or notification at our discretion.
💋 I want to use a Discount/Shop Credit/Loyalty Reward...FREE PIECE to get a totally FREE order- can I?
If you receive a Discount/Shop Credit/Loyalty Reward it cannot be used to create a no-cost order to be mailed to you for free- shipping charges will apply.
Please enjoy our offers in the spirit in which they are provided, as courtesy items, not 'freebie' opportunities.
💋 What is a qualifying website order for an offer or discount?
A qualifying website order requires a minimum of items matching your discount and shipping to be paid at the time of checkout.
💋 Why do I have to pay shipping if the item is free?
If you receive a $5 shop credit and you order $5, the shipping cost of $3.75 will now create an order of $8.75. The discount was intended for $5 only. This is more than your intended offer. If there is a request to ship the offer for free, you are asking for more than your discount. Therefore, in order to avoid loss and still offer incentives, shipping is required.
💋 Do I have to buy something to get a reward/prize/promo code?
I do not offer incentives where you must purchase to qualify. The only exception for reward qualification is the 'Buy 12 Get 1 Free' Loyalty Rewards, sanctioned by Paparazzi and intended as a thank you to our customers for their loyalty.
💋 How do I get my Loyalty Reward offer for Buy 12 Get 1 Free?
If you qualify, you will be emailed a link to redeem your reward at the beginning of each month. We will publicly post in our Facebook VIP Group that all Loyalty Rewards have been emailed. Please note: Once your Loyalty rewards have been claimed, this resets your Loyalty Reward accrual count.
💋 Can I use more than one promo code (for example, FREE SHIPPING)?
Only one offer/promo code may be used at a time. Thank you for your understanding.
💋 I purchased before I signed up for the Loyalty Rewards, can I apply that?
All Loyalty Rewards are auto-calculated for every $5 spent at time of signup. These cannot be retroactively applied.
💋 I want to use a Discount/Shop Credit/Loyalty Reward AND get Free Shipping- Can I?
Shipping will apply to any website order that redeems an offer. You may only use one offer/promo code at a time so please decide which you prefer.
We are unable to retroactively apply any offers to paid orders. As your discounts do not expire, please feel free to use it during your next shopping opportunity.
💋 I want to join your Loyalty Rewards- How do I sign up?
If you want to join our Buy 12 get 1 Free Loyalty Program, you may sign up HERE.
