Where to buy wholesale jewelry
The key to buying wholesale jewelry is to source from wholesale distributors, as you won't be able to make enough profit otherwise. Try these options to start:
Sites like Google or Yahoo are an easy way for you to start searching for wholesale distributors for jewelry. They’ll usually show distributors near you.
This is free, obviously, but with a major downside... You may find some of these recommendations are not real wholesale distributors. You have to figure out who the real suppliers are and avoid being scammed.
Popular online marketplaces such as AliExpress and Amazon connect wholesale distributors from all over the world with you to do business with. There are plenty for you to choose from and prices are competitive.
However, there's a steep learning curve to these platforms and a massive communication barrier. Many of the suppliers are from Asia, so they don’t speak the best English.
Supplier directories, like SaleHoo, vet their suppliers. This means you won't need to worry about finding high-quality suppliers or getting scammed.

Contact the supplier and verify their address

Check your supplier’s reputation and track record
Great suppliers stay around a long time. Check how long they’ve been in business, and call their customers if you can to see if they had a good experience.
Purchase and inspect their products
Ordering samples of a supplier’s products can help you see their packaging and product quality. If possible, take a trip to the manufacturing facility to see how things are done.
