Wow, these FURA Mozambican rubies revive that famous Mogok glow

Mogok. The name of this legendary valley of rubies in Burma has become synonymous with the finest rubies in the world.

Over the past decades, the supply of Burmese Mogok rubies has dwindled, and this isn't only because the U.S. government posed sanctions on the military government of Myanmar (Burma).

All about the upcoming auction of Fura's enormous and exceptional emeralds!

For all you gem lovers out there: Fura Gems is auctioning magnificent emeralds from Coscuez, Colombia. A unique opportunity for gemstone buyers to buy iconic and stunning emeralds, masterpieces by the nature of Coscuez.

Two very rare and beautiful emerald roughs weigh a whopping 81,2 carats and 83,8 carats each. Also up for auction are an impressive array of top-quality emerald roughs of more than 20 carats each.

 

VICENZAORO MARCH 2022, A POSITIVE NEW START

Unfortunately, the January edition, the first appointment for the jewelry industry of VicenzaOro Jewelry show, was postponed due to the pandemic.
But this also meant that the show could be held in a safer environment and with fewer travel restrictions. With empathy and solidarity for Ukraine, the exhibition showed careful optimism for our beloved jewelry industry.

Five Reasons to Visit VicenzaOro this Spring!

Yes, I do have a very fond relationship with VicenzaOro. If you need to pick only one show, then pick this one. 

Ok, I am biased. It's the fair that I have visited since the nineties, and I always loved it. There is an excellent mix between ''Italian vibes'' and many diverse exhibitors, from gemstones to half-finished products and famous brands to niche ones. 

Allow me to take you with me and discover the FIVE reasons you too should come! (apart from having a coffee together ;-) )

LOCALISM or the newfound love for HYPERLOCAL, another massive trend for the coming years

Have you noticed how local stores are gaining popularity? From fresh local produce to locally made arts and crafts. We are turning our heads and hearts towards our own communities. Even if this trend was visible before the pandemic started, the pandemic and its consequences likely significantly impacted embracing it. Here is what it means for jewelers, jewelry stores, goldsmiths, local jewelry companies, and jewelry designers.

Report VicenzaOro Jewelry Show September 2021

The first physical jewelry show in Europe was, to put it mildly, a HUGE success. I want to share with you the three things that stood out to me on this show. The following blogs will be more about trends for the upcoming season(s) but first, let's talk about this fantastic show. 

WHAT AMAZING AFTER-SALE SERVICE MAY BRING YOUR JEWELRY COMPANY!

| Esther Ligthart | Business & Industry

Companies don't walk the talk when it comes to delivering excellent service. This was the topic of a recently vividly described article in the Harvard Business Review magazine.
It told how the average American customer spends 13 hours on the phone annually waiting in a queue to solve their problem.
More profound research into the subject revealed that big companies such as United Airlines do this deliberately. While claiming in their advertisements that they offer you, their valued and appreciated customer, the best service possible, they do everything to discourage you from contacting them for assistance or complaints.

VicenzaOro September 2021 offers the industry to finally meet in person again!

In a world where Covid-19 was a 'local outbreak in China," I stepped confidently on an airplane for my biannual visit to VicenzaOro. It was January 2020, and the world would soon change completely.
But as vaccination rates rise and we understand more about organizing events in total safety, we long to leave those endless Zoom sessions and connect in real life again. And luckily, VicenzaOro, organized by the IEG, took a huge responsibility to make this possible.
To be honest with you: I can't wait to go!
