By  Mathew Nyaungwa                            Rough&Polished                               Sep. 17, 2012

De Beers felt the heat during this period under consideration as it had to endure an embarrassing 50 per cent drop in profits in the first half of 2012, while its total sales also fell to $3.3 billion from $3.9 billion a year ago. >>>

By Bill Warren                              Southern Jewelry News                         September 2012       

               

The late, great motivational speaker, radio personality and author Earl Nightingale was once asked what the secret to success in business was.  His answer revealed much.

By Daniel Ford                                          JCK                                      Sep.15, 2012   

              

I’ve been making my way through several recent reports about social media that all point to the same conclusions for retailers.

Get online and get social right now. One of the reports I’ve been studying is from the McKinsey Global Institute that claims that companies utilizing social media networks can unlock $900 billion to $1.3 trillion in annual value. The report also states that one third of consumer spending could be influenced by social shopping. >>>

Transformables: Jewelry You Can Wear Many Ways

By SONIA KOLESNIKOV-JESSOP                 The New York Times                        Sep.17, 2012


Transformables have long been a staple of fine jewelry, offering clients the opportunity to wear a piece more than one way. They first appeared around the turn of the 20th century, when jewelers created tiaras that could be dismantled to be worn as necklaces and hairpieces that could be worn as brooches.
