Bringing gift jewelry to europe

I would like to bring 5 or 6 hundred dollars of jewelry to relatives in Italy. Is there taxes to pay?

Who's going to know what you are taking unless you make it known?? Just don't gift wrap it incase of inspection.

I wouldn't think so as it is for gifts but I may be wrong. Why don't you check the Italian customs website - I assume there is one - and see if there is any mention of gifts of this type.

Unless there's a price tag attached to the gift, you can also say its personal items.

I do know that you pay customs if you ship it to a destination, and someone claims it. But if you are giving it as a gift, it can be different, no?
