A Cookieless Future

by Angie Ash, EVP I have to be honest. When Google announced that it wasn’t going to replace cookies in Chrome with any new proposed personal identifiers, I was neither surprised nor upset. If you’re reading this and not entirely sure what cookies are, you should be soon. That’s because when you visit a website, any tracking...

Easy Celebration Salad

by Angie Ash, EVP This versatile salad is bursting with flavor and texture, and healthy yet tasty ingredients. It’s my favorite to whip together for gatherings with family or friends, which I’m hoping we can actually do this summer! Easy Celebration Salad For the Dressing¾ cup sugar½ cup apple cider vinegar½ teaspoon salt½ teaspoon black pepper¼ cup extra virgin...

Things That Make You Go “Hmmm?…”

by Angie Ash, EVP Jewelry campaigns typically involve some storytelling. And some campaigns are clever and make sense, like romancing three-stone rings into a past/present/future ring. Or making that pendant of swirling diamonds not just be a nice design, but a “journey”. Other things are a bit more far-fetched, or just plain crazy. We’ve seen it all...

Hard Habit To Break

By Angie Ash, EVP Many retailers had their best year ever in 2020. Perhaps that was due to rolling up their sleeves and embracing necessary changes to get business done. Or maybe it was because their best customers were spending money on jewelry instead of travel. Likely, it was a fortunate combination of both! Now, however, there...

What Will the New Normal Look Like?

By Angie Ash, EVP When COVID first reared its ugly head, there was no phrase I despised hearing quite as much as the “new normal”. There was nothing even remotely “normal” about what the world was going through when the pandemic hit. With almost a year of COVID under our belts, though, the phrase is finally settling...

“He Went to Blue Nile!”

by Angie Ash, EVP I have great news - my daughter is officially engaged! My future son in law asked for our blessing to marry Meredith about a month ago, and Matt and I both loved that he followed this tradition of sorts. Within the conversation, I mentioned that I was in the jewelry business and told...

A Hard Habit to Break

by Angie Ash, EVP As someone with a side hustle teaching a few classes at a local gym, I often get asked how to keep weight off successfully and long-term. It’s not easy, especially for women as they age and face the realities of a slower metabolism and the effects of hormones. As if the rest of...

For Better or Worse

Seems like every retailer wants the same things consistently and, no doubt, they’re great things and smart things to strive for. Better bridal business. Repeat customers. Higher average sales. More traffic. But when it comes to putting those wants into tangibles, sometimes the obstacles to success begin at store level basics. Better Bridal Business. Every weekend...

Jingle All the Way

by Angie Ash, Executive Vice President Engage the Five Senses in Your Store This Holiday Season As the song goes, “it’s the most wonderful time of the year.” This year we can only hope, right? For many people, possibly you included, it’s also the most stressful time of the year. Before you’re in the thick of it, make...
