DO YOU HAVE A CATALOG?
Not yet, so much of our inventory is one -of-a-kind that by the time the catalog rolled
off the presses, it would be obsolete.
We do carry back stock on cabochons, faceted stones, beads, crystals, fossils and certain gift items.
We will also update this web site to showcase our latest news and purchases.
The best way to know if we have what you're looking for is to call
(800) 467-6503 or (505) 982-8750 or E-mail:

necklaces with our beads or your own.
Standard clasps are available and special orders are welcome.
DO YOU WHOLESALE TO THE TRADE?
Yes, we wholesale to the trade. The applicable NTTC tax certificate is required
whether you're a jeweler or interior decorator within the designated United States.
Proper business licenses are required for international orders.
THERE IS NO WHOLESALE MINIMUM ORDER, we understand everyone is on a different buying scale.
Earthfire Gems has assisted quite a few new jewelers who went on to win acclaimed industry
awards and establish successful businesses like Anne Pratt of Anne Pratt Designs, New Orleans:
"Earthfire Gems is my number one wholesale source for pearls and gemstones.
We have a great working relationship, one that began years ago when I first started making jewelry.
Aside from the great customer service, Forrest Broadley is a gemologist who has taught me alot
about stones and what to look for in the selection process.
The time he spent educating me even when I wasn't a huge buyer impresses me until today-
-there's never been a wholesale minimum, I receive merchandise on memo-
-all of this adds up to why he's still number one in my book."
DO YOU OFFER A LAY-A-WAY PROGRAM?
You bet. Ours is a three month plan with as much of a down payment as possible.
There are NO cash refunds for a lay-a-way item if you decide not to buy it before it's paid in full.
Instead you will receive a credit for any future purchase.
On large quantities of stones and beads there is a 10% re-stocking fee wholesale or retail.
DO YOU GUARANTEE AUTHENTICITY OF YOUR INVENTORY IN WRITING?
All purchases come with written declarations and guarantees of authenticity.
IS THAT A REAL CAVE BEAR?
Yes, this 7 ft. Ursus Spelaeus is approximately 45-50,000 years old, discovered in the Thaya Cave, Ural Mountains in Russia.
The bear normally walked on all fours but did rear up in this threatening pose.
It is shipped in a chest, along with a video to reassemble it in your home.
