Whats New at / Christmas 2016
« on: November 27, 2016, 07:15:38 PM »
It's almost here - the team from Aussie Sapphire wish all our valuable customers and friends a very happy Christmas and a healthy and rewarding 2017 and beyond.

We have heaps of great Christmas present ideas so check out our great range - if you need assistance with choosing, feel free to email us for advice.  Cant decide on a present?? Why not give a Gift Voucher instead.


With such massive amounts of parcels leaving our warehouse and other shops around the world, the postal system is under pressure during the lead-up to Christmas. Therefore, it is essential you order as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

We will be shipping everyday until midday on Friday 23rd December but you need to allow for delivery time to your location. Please don't leave it till the last minute.

Overnight courier is only available for small products (ie. only items that can fit in an air satchel) so check first if you are unsure.  Please make sure you use a business/work address OR provide a safe drop instruction if you cannot be sure someone will be available to sign for the delivery as redelivery fees apply for futile deliveries.

Stock up on supplies:

The quieter period during Xmas/January is a great time to work on your lapidary hobby - might be a good idea to check your supplies of consumables now so you dont have delays during your precious time off. Order now so you are prepared to get creative during your down time.

Shipping over January Holidays:

Online orders will ship again after the New Year's Weekend in the order received (from Tuesday 3rd January).

We will be taking a break from the Phone from Christmas until mid January so we can have a bit of quality family time but we will still be answering emails and shipping orders. Please order online or send your queries via email so we can get back to you straight away. 


If you receive a Christmas Order from Aussie Sapphire and believe there may be a shortage, please unpack FULLY as extras are often packed inside barrels or under machine covers.

Any order error, shortage or possible warranty issue MUST be emailed to us preferably with a full description of the problem and pictures if helpful. Email:  We do not make warranty difficult so dont worry but we do need a record of the issue and the steps taken to resolve it.  Email contact is required in these situations - if you call us, we will ask you to confirm it via email.

As always, email is the BEST and FASTEST way of contacting us.

Thank you for your continued support and have a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year.  We look forward to working with you in 2017.
Cheers from Andrew and Leah Lane and the rest of the Aussie Sapphire team.
