Shipping & Delivery

Delivery lead times and fees depend on your delivery address. Any seasonal or timely updates will be available on our Order Delivery and Lead Time page.

Orders placed before 12pm EST will likely benefit from an express delivery of 1-2 working days. You may see the estimated delivery time on the checkout page while processing your order online.

Personalization services (engraving, embossing, or bracelet adjustments) will require additional time of up to two working days, and limited stock on a creation might require up to seven working days.

Please note that the above days and times are estimates and are subject to adjustments due to unforeseen circumstances.

While most Cartier creations are able to ship within two business days, some items may require additional lead time:

Certificates from the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora are needed to import protected products. You will see a notification in your Shopping Bag if you have added one of these products to your order.
