All FAQ topics


Upcoming Shows: 

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Nina Designs will not be exhibiting at Tucson in 2021. We look forward to the future when it is once again safe to travel and congregate in large groups.  Until then, please enjoy the new styles on the website and reach out if you have any questions or feedback - we love hearing from you.



What is the advantage of shopping at a tradeshow?

Our pricing and discounts at the tradeshows are the same as on our website. Nothing beats seeing our items in person. Tradeshows provide a great opportunity to closely examine styles you may have wondered about and to confirm the high quality of our products. It can be inspiring to see everything laid out in bins side by side. Many customers find the spark for creating an entire new collection from the combination of items that happen to be next to each other in the tradeshow layout. Finally, the tradeshows allow for collaboration between jewelry designs and our design team! We love showing you our favorite designs, explaining how new components work, and brainstorming solutions to your design challenges.


What kind of wholesale documentation do I need at the tradeshow?

We only exhibit at Wholesale tradeshows. To purchase wholesale, please bring a copy of your Reseller Permit or License. This is issued by the state where your business is located and is called different things in different states. For example, the California license is called a Seller’s Permit and is issued by the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration (CDTFA). In New York, the permit is called a Certificate of Authority issued by the Department of Taxation and Finance.  A Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN or EIN) is NOT sufficient for purchasing wholesale. We require the resale permit number issued by your State tax agency. If you live in a state that does not collect sales tax, like Alaska or Oregon, we will accept your city business license. For state specific information visit our Wholesale Requirements page. International customers should provide your business license number issued by your local government. EU customers can use their VAT number.


Do you have a listing of the items that will be available at your next tradeshow?

Our tradeshow stock varies with every show. We have many more items than we have space to display at the tradeshows. When stocking for tradeshows, we prioritize new styles and best sellers. Due to the unpredictability of customer purchases and stock levels, we are unable to provide a list of items that will be at the next tradeshow. If you need a specific item, we strongly suggest you order it through our office.


Can I do an exchange at the next tradeshow?

We are unable to process returns and exchanges at tradeshows. Tradeshows are very busy and we are unable to do the research involved in returns; our inventory at the tradeshows is always changing so it is not possible to know if a specific item will be there; and our tradeshow accounting system is not connected with our in-office accounting system. Please send any returns or exchanges back to the office, using the address on the upper left of your invoice. Read more about our exchange policy in our Returns & Exchanges FAQs


If I place an order today can I pick it up at the next tradeshow?

It is often possible to pick up an order at a tradeshow. We require that the order be placed complete through the office, meeting the order minimums and with payment processed. That way, at the tradeshow, we can just hand you your order with no further processing. Tradeshow pick up orders must be placed at least a week before the tradeshow opens. Please call us at 1-800-336-6462 to discuss a tradeshow order pickup because there are certain shows where pickup is not possible.
