Commit to Refresh

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

On the whole, it seems all the planning and hard work has paid off, and for most jewelry retailers, sales have proved to be up from last year, giving us all encouragement and confidence to start 2013 on a high note.

Nothing brings excitement to the work place more than freshening things up. It can be as easy as changing displays, a fresh coat of paint, new lights, new merchandise mix, a new offering of a burst of color gemstones or highlighting what you already have in a more creative way.

COLOR is even bigger this year and the fashion world is strongly embracing vibrant hues and bold mixes and matches, so why not also add it to your offerings. With larger profit margins in colored gemstones and custom designs, 2013 would be a good time to commit to focusing on this largely untapped source of growth and revenue in your store.

Bring excitement and new energy through your doors by zooming your focus on beautiful colored gems. We carry a wide range of price points and gems in all colors of the rainbow.

Thursday, October 18th, 2012


We are sharing with you the list of the Pantone Spring 2013 Color Report top 10 colors, as well as “THE” color of the next year – Monaco Blue.

“It (Monaco Blue) speaks to the practicality that we are seeing in society”, says Pantone’s executive director Leatrice Eiseman.

These color predictions are done by obsessively looking at runway shows and keeping tabs on the fashion industry. Pantone researches the spring shows and the colors designers were using and found that the mood was resoundingly practical and pop art inspired.

As you get ready to offer the latest to your fashion savvy customers, it’s good to know what gems and colors are available that work well with the new wardrobe these ladies will be purchasing fresh off the racks.


Brown Zircons have a nice neutral color that blends well with all the top 10 Pantone colors for 2013,  making any piece of jewelry featuring Brown Zircons very versatile in its wear.
