Mid-American Jewelry Show

Columbus Convention Center

August 21 & 22, 2010 Booth #208

Like the weather, we too prepare to shift gears in our business and personal lives this time of the year. Summer, a time to relax, rejuvenate and enjoy the slower paced lazy days, is ending and schools start everywhere. For many of us, another thing that signalizes the end of summer is the Mid-America jewelry Show, taking place here in Columbus, Ohio.

Having exhibited at it for over 20 years, we are excited this year about the change of venue. Though still at the conveniently located Columbus Convention Center, the show has been moved to the newly renovated Battelle Grand Ballroom, which is promised to be a much more beautiful and intimate setting, enhancing the overall feel of the show. We encourage all of you to take advantage of this convenient and inexpensive regional show close to you, and help get yourselves focused for business this fall.

The area around the Convention Center also has a lot to offer visitors, with a great selection of restaurants and night life right there in the Short North, a growing and emerging happening part of town. It will prove to be a fun weekend well spent for all who decide to come and visit us.

Right now, we have some new and interesting items in our inventory as well as our great selection of fine quality gems in popular and salable ranges, perfect for all tastes and budgets.

As we talk to our customers we hear that many jewelers are experiencing healthy profit margins in their offering of custom designs with colored gems and wish to expand and build on that business. So if you already haven’t tried it, start small and offer something new to your customers, making you their Color destination.

The 2009 Columbus Jewelry Show

Friday, August 28th, 2009

Columbus Convention CenterWe exhibited at the Columbus Jewelry Show this past weekend. It is held every year end of August at the Columbus Convention Center, which is a great location being in the downtown area and the Short North district with many other things to do and see, along with a large assortment of great restaurants. As an exhibitor, I like the fact that we can just walk across the street and buy lunch at the North Market, a great indoor market of specialty food items by local vendors, and this year I was tempted to shop at the farmers market right by it on Saturday on the way to back to my booth!!

We have been exhibiting at this show for over 20 years and have seen how certain shows grow or contract for a variety of reasons. Some main factors would be the timing and proximity of other shows and of course this year the big “E” word. So, yes because the economy is not back in full swing we did not have very high expectations, particularly based on the buyers of this regional trade show, and the line we carry. Only a handful of true gem lovers or gem buyers attend this show, yet we were able to make contact with some new stores who were pleased to see the quality and range of colored gems we carry, and want to use us as a quality supplier in the future.

On Friday, the day before this two day show, there had been a great variety of classes and seminars offered to the buyers and the American Gem Trade Association had also taken part in them, promoting color. Since Kambiz Sabouri is the vice president of the AGTA, having their representatives in our town made it more special and we got to spend some extra time with them.

Since many of us are in this business for the long haul, we have learned to ride the ups and downs, trying new approaches and preparing for changes that we see happening. For example, our wonderful website with its online inventory search and images has been very warmly received by our customers and our presence on Polygon.net has gotten some good feedback.

Our main focus has always been and will remain, quality gems at all price points, competitive pricing and exceptional service. All along, we have not hesitated to constantly share our up to date knowledge and expertise regarding gems, educating and helping our customers become more informed jewelers. Many appraisers have also commented on how helpful we are to them since we deal in and know about such a large range of gems.

The challenge is not to loose sight of what our passion is and what we do the best, meanwhile being aware and staying on top of the changes in supply, distribution patterns and buying trends. I have a feeling we will be heading back to principles of enduring quality and true value as we evolve and mature as consumers.
