Q: Can jewellery (3pcs) be shipped to China, as it's a gift, not for resale.

Some couriers won't accept the pickup, 2 necklaces and a pair of earrings.

Yes they can. You need to find a different courier and clearly state it is a gift on the paperwork.

 

Make sure it is a courier that has tracking as you'll want to see where it is during transit and trace it if it does not get delivered

Try the same courier and tell you are shipping Christmas tree decor ....

 

What does it mean 'not for resale'?

I mean, how can you prove that it won't get sold (for an eternity) to the custom?

 

You can't, so don't even mention it if you'll walk into China ....Custom offical will determine if items are for resale by quantity and confiscate them. 3 pieces of jewerly aren't 'resale' no.'. 

 

DHL regulations at import to China ( 3-8):

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
