It says they only charge by the weight, so it might not be too bad for little "diamonds".

$29.77 for 168 1cm edible jewels doesn't seem like a good deal...

I'd be hesitant to order them in the U.S. during warm seasons....they do look better packaged than most and looking at the images of them they seem of a higher quality as well....but still...unless they could assure that they would tolerate the heat on their journey from the U.K. I'd be looking to see if there was a U.S. supplier for them

I purchased those quite a while back... they look really lovely on a cake.

So would you say it is worth it, if you really needed them? Also did you buy them overseas?

Ok, here's a site located in Chicago. They don't have online ordering but says you can call & they'll help you out. If you do, let us know the pricing.

Don't understand this one. Don't know if it's a mold or the gems. If it's a mold that would be sweet b/c you could make them over & over w/ hard candy!!!!

I live 'overseas', so shipping was relatively inexpensive. I live within the EU, so customs was not a problem.

If you are going to order anyway, order a great big bunch. The cost difference in shipping is minimal, and you will probably be able to use all the jewels, once people see them on the cakes. Or get with another decorator and share an order.

squires have pretty reasonable shipping rates plus they are ade from isolmalt which doesnt absorb moisture and go sticky like normal sugar. so ordering summer or winter should'nt make a difference
