      I would like to ask if you have any stone list requirement by us Customs for import to US

    2. Mike Blake Says:

      Thank you for all of great information on importing diamonds. I have been looking for a wholesaler of diamonds for my company and keep running into road blocks. I have many brides that are looking diamond earrings, diamond pendants, and diamond necklaces. It would be great if I could add some real diamonds to my site.
