How to Choose the Best Wholesaler for Gemstone Beads

Gemstone play a very important role in your life and buying them can be a really tough thing if you do not manage to come across a wholesaler or a retailer who has the perfect collection of gemstone beads to impress you. Buying these unique beads at wholesale prices can save a designer a lot of money, but it's important to consider factors other than price when looking for a gemstone wholesaler.

Here are the tips to follow before you buy gemstone beads from wholesalers:

  • Huge range for Selection: A good source of wholesale gemstone beads will be able to offer freshwater pearls, semi precious and precious beads, as well as vermeil, sterling silver, copper and brass beads. Buying everything from one store means that you'll be able to enjoy reduced shipping costs and will cut down on the valuable time it takes to search multiple web sites or stores for particular unique beads.

  • Price: Price of your gemstone beads is a very important concept; the price that wholesalers are able to pay for their unique beads directly impacts the cost of the jewelry and how much they can charge for their jewelry pieces. If the price of semi precious or precious beads is too high, chances are the jewelry will sit in a store display case before being sold. By purchasing wholesale gemstone beads, you can bring down your costs and provide jewelry less expensively, while still maintaining your profit and the quality of your jewelry.

  • Easy Return Policy: Because buying beads online means you can't touch the beads or see their quality in person, it's vital that any source for wholesale beads offers a hassle free return policy. It's reasonable for the company to put a time limit on returns and require authorization before accepting a return, but be wary of wholesalers who have a strict 'no returns' policy. A company that's interested in developing relationships with jewelry designers will understand the need to see gemstones in person before making the final decision if the bead should be used.
