Hi Paula,

My absolutely favorite source for charms while I was in retail was
Rembrandt Quality Charms (RQC). They have over 4,000 different styles
and they’re ALL available in Sterling Silver, Gold-filled, 10K & 14K.
They’ve truly included something for everyone in their line and their
quality is first-rate. Prices are reasonable too.

RQC’s catalog is one of the best done - items are grouped by theme,
the photography is crisp, everything is actual size and it doesn’t
take a month to figure out their retail price list organization -
plus it’s removable so there’s minimal clutter on the picture pages
but you don’t have to flip back & forth or memorize a 20-digit
number, etc.

RQC’s customer service is great, items are very rarely out of stock
and orders ship right away. I liked using them for special orders
because they’re highly reliable.

Their phone number is 800-828-7840, fax is 800-828-7811, if you want
to call to inquire on a catalog. I’m not sure if you’d need to open
an account first, some companies want to confirm requests are from
legitimate/appropriate businesses before sending expensive catalogs
out. RQC isn’t one of those companies set on mastering ways to make
your life complicated though so I’m sure you won’t encounter much
difficulty.

On a final note, my praise and recommendation is completely unbiased

  • I’m not affiliated with RQC in any capacity. My only compensation
    here is the good feeling from sharing some experience - and that’s
    more valuable than monetary reward anyway!

Good luck, hope this helps. You’re welcome to email me privately if
you’d like. It’s always nice to see a fresh address in my unread
email list that isn’t of the
www.soliciting-you-with-the-offer-of-an-online-lifetime.com variety.
But if anyone wants more, I can forward you some on Kona coffee,
mortgage/equity, long distance, airfare…gee, makes me wonder how
much time/expense is wasted on writing, editing, uploading, tracking
and following up these things just so - and in addition to - how much
time we all spend deleting them! So, I’ll end with a question on this
message title in question - how many Orchid readers out there have
been CHARMED enough to actually buy junk from e-junkmail…? Haha!
