Well, it's almost Spring! As always, a large portion of the Winter season is dedicated to the Tucson shows. This year was no different with two booths in two separate shows (GJX and AGTA). I want to thank everybody that stopped by either booth. We saw many repeat customers as well as many new ones. Your business is much appreciated, whether new or continued. The Spring cutting season is now underway with many coming attractions in Maine tourmaline, Montana sapphires, aquamarines just to name a few.
I want to thank you for your continued business this past year and look forward to continuing our partnership going forward. I am always willing to help promote colored stones whether it is through educating staff, online Geminars or in-store gemstone roundtables.
I would like to remind everybody that I am available by Virtual Zoom meetings should you need to see an expensive item up close before commiting to having it sent to your store. I hope that our "Virtual" contact does not go away completely but it will never replace our person to person meetings. It has become a viable way to conduct business and actually see a stone "live" instead of relying on a description, photo or video. Do you have a customer that isn't sure what types of stones, color, size, and/or shape they might want? What better way to save shipping charges and time then to jump on a three way Zoom to show your clients some potential choices to narrow their selection before sending to your store to see them in person.
The website is a good place to start to see if a particular stone may be in stock. Not quite everything is listed and new stones are added weekly. If you don’t see it on the website, please give me a call or email.
Thank you for stopping by the website and thank all of you for making it a success. As material is continually being cut or purchased, please contact me by phone or email if you don't see what you need. Feel free to contact me regarding how I can help in training staff, organizing a gemstone roundtable or to sourcing your gemstone needs.
If you haven't already done so, please register by clicking on the "Register" link at the Login page. You may then login with your info and browse to reserve any stones that you wish to see.
