RE: The tariff classification of ladies’ pearl belts from China.

Dear Ms. Riggs:

In your letter dated September 24, 2004, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted samples are as follows:

Style number 52066823 is a ladies’ pearl belt with ribbon ties. The belt is composed of a 100% glass pearl strand measuring 29” in length and two 100% polyester grosgrain ribbon ties attached at each end.

Your samples are being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the ladies’ pearl belts will be 7117.90.9000, 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: Other.” The rate of duty will be 11% ad valorem.

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