RE: The tariff classification of a bead necklace, a product of Korea.

Dear Ms. Balice:

In your letter dated April 3, 2000 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Your submitted sample, you advise, is a two strand bead necklace composed of colored plastic beads at approximately ½” intervals on monofilament. These are attached to a typical closure fitting of metal. The style # 86118 and it is called an “Illusion” necklace. The value was verbally stated to be $0.43, FOB Korea.

The applicable subheading for these earrings will be 7117.90.7500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Imitation jewelry: Other: Other: Valued over 20 cents per dozen pieces or parts: 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.
