    Does anyone know of any online store that sells jewel bearings? some clock supply stores see assorted jewels. I am looking for a store that sells specific sizes.

    I have ordered jewel bearings from Swiss Jewel Company. You will need to contact them for pricing and to place an order.

    I bought from Swiss Jewel. Nice people to deal with. The jewels I got are glass clear; I wish they were ruby colored.
    An alternative is Bird Precision

    Thanks... I just spoke to Bird Precision folks... they seem super nice too. I live in India. Shipping to India get really expensive... especially when you require very small quantities...

    I had Swiss Jewel send the rings & endstones via regular post office mail. Was not expensive.

    Here is another supplier. Their website does not list the sizes available. As I recall you have to buy 10 of each size. You are aware of of mark Frank's astro skeleton clock - their jewels are sourced from there.
