Where applicable I have provided notes on my experiences of ordering
from
individual companies. I have collected catalogs from most of the US
manufacturers and jewelry samples from many. My comments/opinions
appear in
[  ].

If you find your company listed and feel that you have been
misrepresented
by a review, or if you have corrections to make in the listing, please
email
me at <ardvark@best.com>.

Companies listed as distributors only often do not manufacture the
jewelry.
Companies listed as wholesale dealers usually require proof of business
(resale certificate, business license).
