[Source] Gold fill quality jewelry tags?


#1

I"m desperately looking for small oval gold fill jewelry tags that
dangle from necklaces and bracelets to identify the maker. I found
them at only one place so far and that’s at micro stamp. They are way
overpriced. Does anyone have another resource? Rio Grande has them in
sterling and 14K gold, but not gold fill.

Thank you,

when i saw your post. I only found one other company who does gold
fill. the company info is:

i’ve been using microstamp sterling tags for a couple of years now
and have my own steel stamp that i use to stamp each tag by hand.
rather dull work, but their prices compared to Mila are better if
you’re only buying a small amount: $.35 versus .$78. the steel stamp
from microstamp is about $85 if i recall correctly.

i suppose it depends on how much volume you want/need to have in
stock.

good luck!

Actually, Rio does have them on page 456 of their new 2005-2006
catalog. They offer them in oval, circle, rectangle, diamond, heart
and flower.

HTH!
