Our Pledge to You

We pledge to save you money in ways you might not expect ...

Get More, Pay Less: If it costs you less to round up to the next price break, we do it automatically to save you money. Example: If you order 600 silver plated 4mm round metal beads @ 1.80/100, they total $10.80 for 6 bags of 100. But at 10 bags, they are only 0.90/100 due to our volume price break. If we have them in stock, we'll adjust your quantity and ship you 1,000 4mm round beads for only $9.00.

No-Stress Savings: If you place an order shortly before an item goes on sale, and we process your order while that item is on sale, we give you the sale discount.

Costs Less, Pay Less: When you choose a UPS, FEDEX, or USPS shipping option and the real cost to ship it is less than you were quoted, we charge the lower price.

Same Speed, Less Money: If you choose a UPS Air or FEDEX Air shipping option and the ground service is guaranteed to get it to you in the same amount of time, we switch the service to Ground and charge you the lower Ground shipping fee.

Free Insurance on USPS First Class: The USPS now offers $50 of free insurance for Priority Mail, and we took it one step further. We give you free insurance for all domestic First Class shipments of 13oz and under.

Invaluable Service: We provide excellent service when you order, and strong support after the sale. We've been in business since 1972, and we'll be here to help you when you need us.

Honest Information: We research our products and do our best to provide accurate and complete information including lead content, special tools required, and details about hole sizes. This saves you money by making you more informed before you buy!

Our History

Rings & Things' founder Russ Nobbs started his jewelry career in the 1960's selling handmade wire name pins and beaded wire earrings at state fairs around the Pacific Northwest. In 1972, after several years on the fair circuit, he opened a tiny retail jewelry store in Spokane, Washington. Over the years, the store's earrings were joined by turquoise rings, ethnic & hand-crafted sterling silver jewelry, beads ... and a whole lot more.

When the original store's location was torn down to build a bank, Rings & Things moved to a nearby downtown shopping mall where the retail store expanded to include a small mail-order business. Our original 19-page catalog has grown over the years to become a 700+ page print catalog and a 20,000+ item online store.

In 2000, we closed our downtown mall store to focus on the growing mail-order business — Rings & Things was becoming a jewelry parts resource for the nation and the world! Having outgrown our downtown mail-order digs, we bought our own warehouse in 2005. In our current home, we're ready as ever to help you with your jewelry-making needs!
