We have been in business about 4 years and understand the
"credit application" problems. We are currently using Kim
Imports in Dallas, 800-275-5555 (credit in place); HMS Jewelry,
also in Dallas, 800-467- 4653 (COD, but credit app in process)
and Quality Gold of Cincinnati, 800-354-9833 (COD). Kim and Q
Gold have large catalogs, with finished rings, earings, charms
and chains. HMS is mainly chains and some earings. We’ve also
used Ron de Mar, Philadelphia, 800-258-1110; and CG Creations,
NY, 800-431-1606. They were OK, but were both COD and had one of
them had a $250+ minimum. We found Stuller (our main supplier
for everything else) priced high and we were not pleased with the
quality. We also have a credit app in process with Leslie.
Hope- fully they won’t loose ours. Also, Kim has a good
selection of sterling and will take credit cards. Another good
SS place is Plum Island, 800- 543-7177, in Mass. They take
credit cards and have a nice catalog. As far as platinum, the
only one that comes to mind is Herco, San Fran, 800-227-3223.
We have the catalog, but have never tried to use them. The
selection looks very good (14K, 18K, Plat).
Hope this info helps…
PS…HMS offers lifetime warranty like Leslie.
