The jewelry is contained in a blister package. The four piece plastic jewelry set is valued at 33 cents.

Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the girl's plastic sea shell and plastic imitation pearl jewelry set will be 7117.90.50, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for imitation jewelry: other: other: valued over 20 cents per dozen pieces or parts. The rate of duty will be 11% ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
