Hi, Lorraine,

Thanks for your useful list of suppliers. It's instructive for us USA suppliers to see how often Australians order from our country! BTW, I work for yet another supplier, Rings and Things (it's www.rings-things.com in case you're intersted in checking us out).

Best wishes from

Hi Dave, thanks for your comment. Rings and Things are definitely a reputable company that have been established for many years. Us Aussies in the jewellery industry purchase a lot of our needs from the U.S. You have a much wider variety and price range to choose from.

Thanks for the list Lorraine. I don't often order from the US. How do you find the shipping prices?
Cheers,
Tasha

Hi Tasha, sometimes the shipping can be a bit hefty, but even factoring this cost in many purchases are still less expensive than buying from Australia.
