The battle for market-share is raging between traditional stores and online operations. And this is not confined to the diamond jewelry sector, it’s taking place in every consumer category.

12 Jewelry Trends for 2013: Amber

Amber just might be the unsung darling of the gemstone world. It’s affordable (you can buy pieces at shows for just a few dollars), lightweight (making it ideal for fashioning into huge statement pieces), and well storied (the fossilized tree resin can serve as a time capsule, sometimes trapping visible insects). >>>

You work hard to build your business. You probably get in early and stay late. I’m guessing you also sacrifice at least some of your personal life for the greater good of the company.  If you work so hard, why would you risk everything you’ve done by not securing your business?  >>>
