IMPORTANT: Failure to comply with these safety and packaging equirements may result in refusal or disposal of inventory immediately upon receipt at the Amazon fulfillment center.
Any jewellery unit that can be damaged by tearing, dirt, dust or liquid during the fulfilment process must be packaged following these guidelines. Jewellery must be packaged so that the unit cannot be damaged or cause unsafe conditions by having the material exposed during the fulfilment process.

Examples of pouches properly packaged one per bag with barcode inside the bag for protection against dust. The bags are slightly larger than the pouches.
Example of pouch that is exposed and unprotected. The contents of the pouch are bagged, but the barcode is inside the pouch and cannot be scanned without removing it from the pouch.
Pouches must be packed individually in plastic bags with the barcode on the outside of the pouch to avoid damage from dust.
The bag should be appropriate for size of a pouch. Do not force a pouch into a bag that is too small or place it in a bag where it can easily shift around. The edges of large bags are more likely to get caught and tear exposing contents to dust or dirt.
All poly bags with an opening of 5" or larger must have a "suffocation warning." Example: "Plastic bags can be dangerous. To avoid danger of suffocation; keep this bag away from babies and children."
Poly bag must be transparent.

This example shows a fabric-like box properly stored in a bag slightly larger than the box.
This example shows a box stored in a bag that is much larger than the unit and the label is not on the box. This bag is more likely to be punctured or torn and the barcode separated from the unit.
This example shows a box poorly protected by a sleeve that is not secured enabling the box to slip out and become separated from the sleeve and the barcode.
Boxes made of material that is easily cleaned do not have to be bagged. Sleeves are sufficient protection from dust.
Boxes made of fabric-like material that is susceptible to dust or tearing must to be bagged or boxed individually with the barcode displayed prominently.
Protective box or bag should be only slightly larger than unit
Box sleeves should be snug enough or secured in such a way that they
will not slide off and the barcode must be visible with the
sleeve in place.
Barcodes should be attached to the box if possible; they can be attached to sleeves if secured properly.
We recommend that very-high-value jewellery be packaged in protective bags since these units do not sell fast or frequently and might be sitting in the fulfilment centre for longer periods of time.
