Jewelry weblog

Leading online jewelry authority The Jewelry Weblog recently featured Novell’s new initiative to put affordable platinum bridal jewelry into jewelry store showcases – The Great American Metal Exchange (GAME). The premise of GAME is simple; jewelry stores can exchange precious metals from merchandise that is unwanted, broken or just not selling for a platinum engagement ring collection with a substantial retail value. GAME answers questions that many jewelry stores have in a tough economy – what can retailer do with old jewelry that’s not moving? And how can a jeweler actually increase their inventory without spending a lot of money?

Gem Gossip, a popular fashion jewelry blog with a unique view of current jewelry trends, highlights The Jewelry Book’s special feature – “Jewelry Made in America.” Novell has for a long time believed that the “Made in America” theme has a pronounced and longstanding value for domestic jewelry manufacturers as a whole; it is an important issue and a strong selling point in an age of inferior imported jewelry products. “Made in America” should without a doubt equate to quality jewelry for consumers that may be battling through a tough economy.

You can read the entire article entitled “The Jewelry Book: all for ‘Made in America’” on Gem Gossip.

Along with Novell, the blog posting also mentions fellow American jewelry designers/manufacturers Alex Sepkus, Mark Patterson and Jack Abraham. The entire issue of The Jewelry Book and be viewed online or downloaded in a PDF version.
