You can see information about the basic types of Amber and an approximation of the prices by going to this link. Amber Info The prices shown there are just an approximation and the prices that you get for your ultimate order will be based on the price at that time that you submit your Request For Quotation and get a response from the factory.
We will discuss specific ordering process for each of the categories in separate sections below.
Wholesale purchases of Amber and Silver Jewelry.
Generally speaking, the factories require a minimum order of 1 kg of product. In some cases factories require more. Occasionally a factory will have a minimum Euro value requirement as well.
It is expected that you will use a catalog to choose the products and that you submit a request for quotation for the products that you have chosen. That request for quotation should include the item inventory number and the number of pieces of that item that you wish.
Because of the huge demand for catalogs, most of which come from people who have no intention of buying factory minimums, factories generally do not dispense catalogs. They expect that you'll assemble your request for quotation off their website. Those can be found through the search engines.
As a side note, many companies do not even print paper catalogs. Everything is done electronically.
Likewise, they do not consider that price lists are public information so you will not be simply sent price lists. If you want prices you must submit a Request For Quotation and you will be given prices based on your Request For Quotation.
For your convenience, this Chamber has put up a good selection of factory catalogs that you can use to assemble an order. It can be found at this link. Amber Catalogs
In some cases you may be able to buy less than 1 kg out product made by a particular factory. You can do that by buying through an amber agent who accumulates orders, then makes buys greater than the factory minimum from the factories and ultimately resells the product to you after adding minimal service charge.
If you need help with an amber agent, complete your request for quotatation as you normally would and submit it via our Contact Form . We will forward it to some agents.
Step by step process.
Use the Amber catalogs that you can get at this link Amber Catalogs or use a company website to assemble a request for quotation.
