If you’re following the Chinese tariff news or read JCK industry news, then you’ve probably heard how it’s impacting the jewelry industry. “The administration delayed tariffs on certain goods imported from China until Dec. 15 to prevent an impact on U.S. holiday sales. Jewelry products did not make the list. The United States will slap an additional 10% duty on almost all jewelry produced by China” (JCK Legal, Rob Bates. Link to full Article).
While this is very unfortunate news for the U.S. economy and the jewelry industry as a whole, U.S. jewelers will not be left hopeless and without options.
