As a Jewellery Designer you will have different issues influencing you from those of the Retailer or Manufacturer when it comes to building your collection. They may also be exactly the same if you're also making and selling the stuff!
Apart from building the right business for you, you also need to build the right business for your customers, whether retail or wholesale.
Apart from access to a huge stock of gemstones with prices to browse through and inspire you, you will find an ever increasing database of articles and white papers that may help you find solutions to hurdles you come across in your business.
What I need from you is to contribute. Give your feedback to what is written, share your experiences. Use this website as an opportunity to give and receive advice and ideas from fellow retailers, designers and manufacturers.
Be involved and take action!
