The applicable subheading for the necklace 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.

The applicable subheading for the pouch will be 4202.12.8070, HTS, which provides for trunks, suitcases, vanity casesof man-made fibers. The rate of duty will be 18.1% ad valorem.

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