before looking at the methods for finding jewelry manufacturers
Please first think about the countries that interest you.
Taking into consideration countries of your interest
There are numerous nations worldwide that are the centers of the jewelry industry, and each location specializes in a different area.
In this article, we will talk about Thailand, India, Italy, China, and other major players in this industry.
Despite the fact that many of us also make jewelry out of gold, the majority of Thai jewelry makers are experts in silver.Only a few companies make costumes.
We are able to produce affordable goods of high quality thanks to the low minimum wage.It takes a lot of skilled craftsmen to create intricate objects.As a result, we are also well-known for our affordable handmade jewelry.
The quality varies, but there isn’t much of a difference between good and bad.
India is known for gold or fine jewelry, but many companies also make silver items.We notice that the greater part of their plans are classic and lavish like the one in the image beneath.It’s also appealing because of the low minimum wage and the reasonable prices.

Italy’s minimum wage is not at all low, but it is well-known for its machine-made chains.
It is the center of chain shopping and other types of machine-made jewelry, like simple lockets, thanks to its exceptional technology.
China manufactures almost everything, including jewelry, as the world’s largest manufacturer.
Although a lot of businesses sell 925 silver and gold jewelry, costume/fashion ornaments are its primary market for jewelry.
Its strength is that it sells a lot at low prices.Therefore, China is our recommendation if you want costume ornaments quickly delivered in large quantities.
Four ways to find manufacturers
For your jewelry designs, there are at least four ways to find manufacturers.Please review the graph below.
Gems Fair Show
This is the most conventional means.Until the pandemic struck so hard that all exhibitions were postponed, it had been the most popular method for many jewelry designers, wholesalers, and retailers around the world to locate the manufacturers they were looking for.
Despite the fact that some nations, such as Singapore, continue to host this event nearly every year, the exhibition has unfortunately been unable to maintain its popularity following the Covid from the perspectives of both manufacturers and customers.
It will be held in a magnificent hall where attendees can directly interact with jewelry manufacturers.
- Because they are required to participate, the manufacturers are likely to be dependable.As a result, most of the fair’s manufacturers have been in business for a long time and are financially secure.For instance, we paid between $8,000 and $11,000 for a small exhibition space, as shown in the Primarose booth below.
- You will get an opportunity to straightforwardly see items.This is very true because many pictures of products on the internet are typically processed by multiple beauty applications.
- You will have the opportunity to speak directly with the salesperson.As a result, it only takes a short amount of time to determine whether or not our businesses are compatible.
• You might have to pay for an airplane ticket to attend the fair if you live in a country that does not host one.
Directly searching for them
Is becoming increasingly popular, particularly during the pandemic.Using relevant keywords, you can directly locate them using any search engine like Google or Yahoo.
There is nothing to assist you in screening them for reliability, despite the advantages of being quick, simple, and free.
Sites from third parties
Third parties like Alibaba are another option.
Their advantages are comparable to directly searching them, but please confirm the country of interest first.
Around 90% of members on some third-party websites are from the same country.
Getting recommendations from friends has both positive and negative aspects.
Even though it seems like you can get real information without advertising, it’s one of the hardest ways to get it, and some people tend to keep good sources for themselves.
