A Happier Year Ahead?     

Avi Krawitz                                                  Diamonds.net                                       January 4     

    
Diamantaires were happy to see the back of 2014. After all, it was a tough year in which polished diamond prices declined, accelerating the general downtrend evident since mid-2011. >>>   

Diamond trade hit by lack of credit, low profits

Michelle Graff                                 National Jeweler                                January 6, 2015                            


According to data released Monday by Israel Diamond Controller Shmuel Mordechai, the country’s net polished exports in 2014 totaled $6.27 billion, an increase of 0.6 percent year-over-year. >>> 

New Year, Old Challenges   

ALBERT ROBINSON                                                 IDEX                                 January 1st

After one of the toughest years ever for many diamond industry members in 2014, it’s hard to know what 2015 is going to bring. What is certain is that it is probably not going to be easy. >>>

Lauren Bacall Auction to Include Jewelry by Schlumberger, Elizabeth Gage, Tiffany, Chanel and Cartier

Anthony DeMarco                                 Jewelry News Network                             Dec. 30   

  

 

Lauren Bacall is known for her beauty, her distinctive voice, her high-profile marriage to actor Humphrey Bogart and her impeccable taste. She was less known for her jewelry collection. >>>

 

Jewelry trends to watch in 2015
Cathleen McCarthy                                     National Jeweler                                   Jan. 05  
                                                                            

It’s an exciting time for fashion in fine jewelry. Look for layering and wrapping, color and texture, and mixing and matching in the new year. >>>   

13 Garnet Jewels to Honor January (and Marsala!)

Brittany Siminitz                                                   JCK                                          Jan. 05                                           

There couldn’t be a better gemstone to kick off 2015. Sure, garnet being January’s birthstone is not about to change, but it’s particularly exceptional right now, given Pantone’s Color of the Year, Marsala, which matches garnet at its most recognizable; that rusty, wine-like shade of red. >>>

The Mystery that Still Baffles Scientists: What Makes Pink Diamonds Pink?    

stonechicky                       The Israeli Diamond Industry Blog                     Jan. 01       

       

 

   

While other diamonds get their color from chemical impurities that absorb light (yellow from nitrogen, blue from boron) the “pink” in pink diamonds remains a mystery – since no similar impurities have been found in pink diamonds.  >>>

Victoria Gomelsky                                                JCK                                      Jan. 05


As with every year-end, I contemplated my resolutions for the new year (after dropping serious cash at the Art Institute gift shop, Shop less! tops the list), and then I contemplated yours.

And another thing about appraisals

Chuck Koehler                                              Southern Jewelry News                                   Jan. 04    

  

I’m not finished with my discussion about appraisals yet. There are a few more points I’d like to cover.  The first one is about a question I was asked recently while speaking to a jewelry industry group. >>>

The New Facebook for Marketers in 2015

Susan Gilbert                                             Business2Community                                January 4         
 

One of the biggest changes Facebook is making is in how people can see Facebook Ads in their news feeds – the bread and butter of the large social network.  >>>   

 

Yes, You Can Appear More Confident When Meeting a Client

Jacqueline Whitmore                                                   Entrepreneur                                  Dec. 30

 

If you appear genuinely confident, you’ll be perceived as responsible, capable and intelligent. Clients and customers will be more likely to believe you’re the right person for the job. >>>
