 John F. Allen & Son, Inc. BBB Business Review

John F. Allen & Son, Inc.
Importing Imitation & Genuine Stones and Beads
Since 1889

Established in 1889 by our namesake, John F. Allen & Son, Inc. is the oldest continuously operated bead and stone importer in the country. Over the last 120 plus years, the leaders in the jewelry and fashion industries have turned to us to supply them with the items they need. In that time, many things have changed; however, you can still rely on the fact that as a fourth generation, family run company, we remain committed to supplying our customers with the finest imitation and genuine beads, stones and components from around the world.

Working with factories around the world for so many years has allowed us to build one of the most extensive on-hand inventories in the industry. As a leading importer of Czech Glass Beads, Crystal and components we have been dealing with the makers from that region since the 1920’s and are direct distributors of Czech Seed Beads, Bugle Beads, Fire Polished beads, Pressed Glass and Lampwork Glass items. We also have ties with makers in Germany and the Far East that go back generations and have allowed us to build inventories of specialty stones, cameos, buttons, acrylic beads, metal findings and many more items which are unique to the industry.
Original Business Card from the "Old Days"


In the mid-1980’s we added the resources of Pulver Importing to our company.
Operating as our New York City showroom and warehouse, Pulver’s dedicated team focuses on supplying the jewelry and garment industries with the finest in MC Crystal components. Combining their markets with our own, we have become the largest importer and authorized distributor of Preciosa Crystal stones and beads in the USA. As such, we carry a wide assortment of MC Crystal Stones, Beads Hot Fix, Rhinestone Chain, metal components and more, stocked here in the USA, for quick delivery to you. In addition, we are also a direct buyer and carry a variety of merchandise from the leading cut-crystal houses of Europe, the Middle East and China.

With a selection of over 50,000 different items in our regular line, we have a vast collection stocked in our warehouses, ready for quick delivery world-wide or around the corner. Many of our items are still made using decades old tooling and old-world craftsmanship, but you can also be assured that with our global sourcing, we actively monitor the trends in fashion, technology, manufacturing and supply so that our customers have access to the best selling, finest quality products at a competitive price.

Here at JFA, although we are strictly a wholesale supplier to the trade, we still believe giving each of our customers the best service and support possible.
