It has been about four months since the coronavirus became a serious threat in our country. Given the size of the United States, various parts of the country were impacted differently on a day-to-day basis but since mid-March, almost all areas having been been dramatically affected in one way or another. This has come in the form of lockdowns, stay at home orders, testing, mask wearing and social distancing. Through it all, the jewelry business has struggled but is surviving. Some are even thriving, especially if there was a strong online prescence before the lockdown. Some try to stick to the "old ways" of doing business and have struggled while some have pivoted and been quite successful. I have begun to do online Geminars ,partnering with retail stores to tell the story of colored stones, and even sell a few stones along the way. If your store might be interested in finding out more about this process, feel free to contact me and I would be happy to discuss it furhter with you.
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.
