Port of Entry

Hi, my wife just received her CR-1 visa this Fri. We are leaving to United States next weekend and I have a question about bringing jewelry to enter United States. Is there any restriction to bring jewelry to PoE? My wife has a small box that full with jewelry and wish to bring it together! Would the customs at the border imposes any tax?

Thanks!
