This blog is a place where we would like to share everything we know, love, and do, with YOU! We are hoping to meet other industry professionals as well as anyone who loves a little sparkle!

A Little Bit About Us:

Located in Providence, RI’s Historic Jewelry District, Merchants Overseas is your #1 source for all things crystal.  Merchants Overseas is a preferred Recommended 5 Star Dealer of CRYSTALLIZED™ – Swarovski Elements. We are recognized as a leader in the Fashion Accessories, DIY, Textile and Giftware industries. Fascinatingly, we are almost all that is left of what was once considered “the Costume Jewelry Capital of the World.” In fact, right next door to us is The Coro Building, once the largest jewelry factory in the world, is now offices for many of the top physicians in the state.

The Beginning:

Eugene Wachtenheim, a WWII survivor who emigrated from Europe to join his family already residing in America, founded Merchants Overseas in 1950. Before moving, he corresponded with his uncle living in Chicago about business opportunities in America.  Discovering that the war had caused a shortage of large-sized Aurora Borealis rhinestones in the United States, his uncle suggested that he purchase crystals to bring with him on his journey. And so, Eugene came to this country carrying two suitcases full of crystal rhinestones for sale.

From that day on, Merchants Overseas has grown to become the largest U.S. distributor of CRYSTALLIZED™ – Swarovski Elements.

Ironically, to this day, the Aurora Borealis stone effect is one of our most popular sellers!

Six decades later, we remain a family owned and operated establishment, and the # 1 distributor of the timeless beauty that is CRYSTALLIZED™ – Swarovski Elements.

This fact allows us to provide our customers with an extensive inventory collection of Crystal Stones and Components at very competitive market pricing, with of course, personalized, top-quality service.
