RE: The tariff classification of metal and plastic earrings from China and Korea.

Dear Ms. Delahanty:

In your letter dated February 6, 1995, on behalf of Bijou International, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You have submitted three samples with your request. They are:

1. Style #BE 4757 - A clip-on dangle earring. The clip- on portion is metal and measures one inch in diameter with a plastic imitation gemstone set in the center. A removable twisted metal ring holds three "dangles" consisting of metal and plastic beads.

2. Style #BE 2538 - A dangle earring for pierced ears. The earring has a 5/8" decorative metal button with post from which three "dangles" of plastic beads and a metal heart shaped pendant are attached.

3. Style #BE 2539 - A dangle earring for pierced ears. The earring has a 5/8" decorative metal button with post from which one "dangle" of a cluster of plastic beads is attached.

The applicable subheading for Style #BE 4757 will be 7117.19.9000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Imitation jewelry: Of base metal, whether or not plated with precious metal: Other: Other: Other. The rate of duty will be 11% ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for Styles #BE 2538 and #BE 2539 will be 7117.90.7500, HTS, which provides for Imitation jewelry: Other: Of plastics. The rate of duty will be Free.

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.
