Who you are considering doing Pearl Necklaces business with and where pearl jewelry, they are located can tell you much about a tanzanite retailer. Is the tanzanite retailer headquartered domestically or are they a foreign company with an online presence? This fact is generally known/disclosed at the time you make payment but not always. The whole foreign vs. domestic issue is another discussion altogether but you need to decide in your own mind what you're most comfortable with. Some foreign companies use a domestic mail drop to ship their tanzanites. On the surface they appear to be a domestic company which would willingly submit to FTC rules and regulations many of which protect you as the consumer but some foreign companies couldn't care less about these guidelines. So it never hurts to ask the question. This will help you to avoid the smoke-and-mirrors game that many foreign sellers implement in their marketing strategy. I know of one company in particular marketing gemstones that has many concurrent reincarnations as I like to call them on the internet at the same time. They have many websites all with different looks and sell essentially from the same inventory. While this type of masked marketing is not in and of itself "bad" nor "dishonest " it sure makes it difficult to get the answer to these first couple of questions and creates confusion for many tanzanite buyers. Who am I considering doing business with and where are they located? You might want to cat around on google a bit to find available information and maybe even get some references. Testimonials and referrals represent a major portion of our business and we willingly share our customer references/experiences on our site to make our reputation "real" for would-be clients. Good stuff!
