In all, there are five sizes of marbles. The top selling, "itty bitty orb earrings with a French hook," for example, comes with eight pairs of marbles in different colors. Units in the "fancy" series utilize marbles in the size used by florists, and come with 30 different color marbles. The largest size jewelry utilizes a one inch marble, known as the "shooter" size.
While most of the jewelry is designed for women, the "player" pendant is also worn by men as is one of the ring styles. The minimum order is $300, and can contain an assortment of jewelry designs. The company will guide retailers to best sellers. A display of marbles in the sizes the retailer orders is offered for free with an initial order. The company also provides point of sale postcards that show how the jewelry works.
Pendants are typically offered with a leather cord, a silver chain, or by themselves, so the retailer can combine them with something else that the store carries. As an example of pricing, the itty bitty simple pendant on a leather cord comes with eight marbles and wholesales for $19.50. The suggested retail price is $39. Another pendant, the fancy simple pendant, is two sizes larger than the itty bitty. It comes with 30 different color marbles. On a leather cord, it wholesales for $29.50 and the suggested retail is $59.
