Independent Sales Reps for 40 years

About Us

ogilvie-incSince 1973, we have provided customer focused sales and service on behalf of independent manufacturers and importers of jewelry related products.

We’re a family run business dedicated to providing service, knowledge and experience to our customers.

Sometimes people ask, “So, what is a rep anyways? Should I just go direct? How much does it cost?” Our services are free to you and working with us is no different than going direct other than a few very important things. It’s our sole job to help you! At the end of the day, the most important thing to us is you are serviced and you feel satisfied with the experience with your supplier. We can help answer questions, price, assist with assortment building, expedite, and offer product knowledge and four decades of industry experience.
