RE:     The tariff classification of the "Sterling Silver Abalone Earrings" from China.

Dear Ms. Wong:

     In your letter dated April 8, 2008, you requested a tariff classification ruling. This letter replaces N006825 in which there was a clerical error. A corrected ruling appears below.

   The item at issue is The Sterling Silver Earrings (PP 365737) which are made of sterling silver with an abalone stone. They are valued at $3.02 per pair.

     The applicable subheading for the earrings will be 7113.11.5000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for "Articles of jewelry and parts thereof, of precious metal or of metal clad with precious metal: Of precious metal whether or not plated or clad with precious metal: Of silver, whether or not plated or clad with precious metal: Other: Other." The rate of duty will be 5% ad valorem.

     Duty rates are provided for your convenience and are subject to change. The text of the most recent HTSUS and the accompanying duty rates are provided on World Wide Web at http://www.usitc.gov/tata/hts/.

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