RE: Country of Origin Marking on Gold Rings

Dear Mr. Jerome:

This is in reply to your letter of March 25, 1992, on behalf of josef-ryan diamonds, Winnipeg, Manitoba, regarding the country of origin marking requirements for gold rings from Canada.

You have submitted a sample of a gold ring set with two diamonds. You have stated in your letter that the ring is too small to be legibly die-stamped. We agree. You have asked if using a string tag indicating country of origin would be an acceptable method of marking.

Your sample is being returned as requested.

Section 134.44 of the Customs Regulations explicitly provides that marking by means of string tags is an acceptable method of indicating country of origin, so long as the tags are affixed in a conspicuous place and so securely that, unless deliberately removed, they will remain on the article until it reaches the ultimate purchaser (19 CFR 134.44).

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

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.

Area Director
