Panic Room

Hollywood Reporter had an interesting story in September regarding the new “must have” in your personal mansion. Many of the ultra- affluent have built what appears to be a secondary luxury home equipped with secret panels, bookcases and mirrors. Some are well below the earth’s surface and many are equipped with home theatres along with cigar...

Lipstick On A Pig

Unless you've been hiding under a large piece of rough diamond, it's hard to escape the fact that sales are down in the luxury market. In fact, according to The Luxury Institute, luxury retail has reported a 20% drop in retail traffic. And, according to a new Unity Marketing Study on affluent shoppers. The study is...

Move Your Cheese!

Have you read the book Who Moved My Cheese by Spencer Johnson, M.D.? If you haven’t, it’s on my highly recommended reading list. If you have, it’s probably time to read it again. To give a quick synopsis (since the entire book will only take you a few hours to read cover to cover), it’s a...

Garbage in. Garbage out.

The problem: no one understands the magnitude of work that’s needed to conduct business on the web. It’s no laughing matter. Pure and simple: your website is the online version...

Imagine what the headline would read if it weren’t Nordstrom. Oh, it would be this. Despite the recent and sad news from one of my favorite retailers,...

What Makes An Expert An Expert?

Many of you might be heading to a jewelry show in Chicago and even more will be heading soon to Las Vegas. There you will find some educational offerings. Some will make attending these offerings part of their journey and for those that do, perhaps there is an important question you need to ask yourself: What...

The Rock Horror Picture Show

Lab-grown diamonds are diamonds, correct? They’re not cubic zirconia. They’re not glass. They’re not moissanite. They are real diamonds with all the same physical and chemical properties. According to a story reported about a year ago on the CBS local LA affiliate, “A synthetic diamond is going to have the same physical, chemical and optical properties as...

Houston, We’ve Got A Problem.

If you are one (of the many) upscale, fine jewelry retailers who did not see their sales go through the roof this holiday season, or if you are one (of the many) upscale, fine jewelry retailers who saw a reduction in their average sale, or if you are one (of the many) upscale, fine jewelry retailers...

Do Business and Politics Mix?

You work hard to build a business. So if you have strong feelings about a political view, should you stand behind your convictions? On this Election Day – November 3, 2015 – it seems like a great subject to write about because we have exactly 365 days until the big one, and the candidates are certainly...
