Two of the country’s largest specialty jewelers are headed to mediation to settle their dispute over one diamond’s supposedly superlative brilliance.

Why Retail Matters

By Laura Heller                       Forbes                         March 27, 2013

Celebrity Jewelry Gawk – Spring rings in

By Hannah Connorton                        National Jeweler                  March 28, 2013  

                                        

Although winter weather is lingering in certain regions of the country, spring is here and celebrities are bringing in the season with bold-colored baubles. Now that awards season is over, stars seem to be donning more day-to-day jewelry: stud earrings, smaller drop earrings and more subtle (yet still trendy) necklaces. >>>   


What Diamantaires Don’t Want to Hear: Retailers Are Being Squeezed
By EDAHN GOLAN                                 IDEX                             March 28, 2013                                      


Let’s start with the bottom line – U.S. retailers need to pay more for the jewelry they are selling, and don’t get that much more when selling it. The wholesale prices they are paying are rising at a higher rate than the retail prices they are charging. It’s a margin squeeze. >>>
