Each piece is attached to a card and will be imported in a PVC pouch. The pouch, which is specially shaped to contain the jewelry, is suitable for long-term use and is of a kind normally sold therewith.

The applicable subheading for the three-piece plastic jewelry with vinyl pouch will be 7117.90.5000, 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.
