Unheated Gem Cushion Blue Sapphire

This gorgeous unheated gem Ceylon blue sapphire is truly one of a kind. It is an intense vivid rich blue color with excellent clarity and a great cut and outline. Hitting such high marks in all possible categories is indeed a feat that this beautiful gem can boast about.

Item # 1111 – 4.62 ct – 9.64 x 8.21mm – Cushion – AGTA Cert unheated.

Unheated sapphires exhibiting such high colors and clarity are super rare. The size and shape of this stone also allows it to be very salable, with a very high appeal to those who want the very best, while still staying on budget. A sure pleaser to one with taste.

Pantone Color 2012

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

The Pantone Color Institute has announced 2012’s color of the year as, Tangerine Tango, a citrus-red hue of orange. They describe it as, “Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it”.

With the introduction of more color in fashion, it would be wise to have jewelry pieces that complement what is in style and the going trend. You can find that shade of color in: Hessonite Garnets, Spessartite Garnets, Mexican Fire Opals, some Citrines, and some Sapphires.

Complementary colors that work well with Tangerine Tango are medium blues, lime greens, medium to rich yellows, and medium to hot pinks. These colors can be found in: Aquamarines, Blue Zircons, Blue Sapphires, Yellow Sapphires, Citrines, Golden Beryls, Pink Tourmalines, Pink Sapphires, Peridots, and Tsavorites. This combination of color can happen in the same piece of jewelry or with a piece of jewelry that complements an outfit in “Tangerine Tango”.

So keep these colors in mind as you prepare your fresh spring looks for your fashion savvy customers.

Timely Customer Service

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

Winding down our heightened pace after the holidays, we all now get a chance to review our past year store performance and make notes on what practices and patterns of business to keep and which ones to change and improve.

For most every one of our customers, 2011 has proved to be a better year than last, and there is an overall optimism regarding the current growth trend in the industry. This positive outlook motivates us to invest further in what has made us successful, and able to survive what many around us have not.

“Delivering exceptional customer service”, will probably be on top of your list of strengths, and what has made you stand out from the big box and mall stores that compete for the same sales. Delivering quality products backed by in-depth knowledge of those products are what creates the confidence and trust your customer needs before they make that purchase. Consumers have a shorter attention span, are more informed and demanding these days, so addressing their requests with an offering of products that satisfies all their particular needs in a timely way is extremely important.

In light of these facts, Gem 2000 hopes to continue to remain (or become) one of your choice suppliers, who is willing and able to partner and support all your color gemstone requests, turning them into actual sales.
