Our Inventory is Your Inventory

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

Since we created our website and added the gem search feature enabling our customers access to quality pictures of our inventory, we have been listening to feedback from our customers and constantly improving its different features and options. Over the last few months, we have noticed a large increase in the requests we receive for specific items listed in our online inventory and also specific stones featured there used as a reference color for other shapes or sizes requested. We have also noticed an increase in overseas orders based on having quality images of our gems. Many retailers have also used our website to qualify their customers and narrow down their choices and budget to a final few, which we then ship to them to show in person.

Come by and see us in Tucson so you become familiar with all our high standards of cutting and quality and this way you’ll have access to our inventory all year around through our website, confidently selling fine color gems to your customers.

Tucson 2011

Monday, January 17th, 2011

As we start getting comfortable writing 2011 on our correspondence, we instantly realize that Tucson is fast approaching. For those of us surrounded by ice and snow, it also brings images of sunshine and crisp desert air. As veteran Tucson attendees, we have all developed “must do” lists, perfected over time. Yet we are all also eager to explore new experiences and discover new precious finds, embracing the spirit of creativity and design.

Here at Gem 2000, we have begun the process of getting our entire stock ready for display and servicing of retailers need lists. While doing this, I still cant help but linger at times, looking at some of the gems, admiring their beauty, mounting them up in imaginary settings, bedazzling in their mounted forms.
Right now, we have a great range of quality gems in a rainbow of colors ready for your picking. So, come by our booth early and take a look. Our great range of price points also makes it easy to find gems that match whatever budget easily. Don’t forget to bring any semi-mounts that have sat around without center stones. Our volume purchase discounts also help out your bottom line.

We are also excited to continue representing Glenn Lehrer at our booth with his unique torus cuts and carvings. Ready to help get your year off to a good start we are exhibiting at:
