All our blown glass items are packed very carefully. For years we ship to Italy and in the world and we have varied forms of packaging to reduce the risk of product damage. Each piece is wrapped with “carta renna” so then the pieces wrapped are wrapped in bubble wrap and finally places, spaced from each other to avoid touching inside the cardboard that is filled with pieces of styrofoam. Jewelry, each piece has a protective box and is sent in small boxes or envelopes with air bubbles where are placed in the jewel box. Upon the arrival of the shipment is a good idea to view the status of the packaging to accept the subject shipment. Please note that you can request a quote for shipping insurance and content.

Reported to the courier any problem, take a photo of the broken piece and send an email to email@example.com asking for a replacement or call 39 3297393650. Verification procedure
