"Discover What Makes Us Different"

We have been working with many of the same suppliers for generations.

Our long term relationships with our suppliers enable us to offer the best service and delivery possible to our customers.

We use our decades of experience in the jewelry industry to put together a diverse assortment of products for manufacturers, designers and the DIY markets.

To meet the changing needs of fashion and to allow designers easy access to the products they need and want, we utilize our resources, experience and expertise to deliver desireable and relevant products from Swarovski and our hand-crafted jewelry components of glass, metal and lucite.

E.H. Ashley has been working with small, family-owned craft-shops in Germany for generations.

These artisans manufacture small batch stones from our collection of vintage tools. For larger projects new tools can be produced to create custom items. These hand-crafted stones are uniquely beautiful - perfect for the discerning customer who is looking for something special.

Through our connections in the Rhode Island Jewelry Industry, we are able to develop unique solutions for our customers.

We supply a line of Made-in-America, high quality jewelry settings to fit a variety of the jewelry components we supply.
