America: Accept Nothing Less than Great!

Customer service in America

As a society, we sometimes forget that what our money pays for – whether it be a service, product or experience – should always meet our expectations. In fact, our expectations should often be exceeded. For nearly twenty-five years, Novell has built its reputation by creating quality hand-crafted wedding bands that are made in America. The outstanding quality of our wedding bands and customer service s have been setting Novell apart from other “cookie cutter” companies in the industry, and we continue to raise the bar every day. In theory, our customers are only getting married once, and the wedding bands that they buy are a constant reminder of that day, so it should be an outstanding product. A commitment to quality is also why Novell has been dedicated to educating future brides and grooms about platinum. Platinum is the premium metal for bridal jewelry; it is naturally white and holds your diamond secure. Whether you choose platinum, palladium or gold for your wedding band, be sure to educate yourself about all of the metals and make the choice that is right for you.

Platinum wedding bands

Why Accept or Provide Something Less than Great?

If providing or receiving a great customer experience is a priority, then please read  The Settlers: Why We Should Stop Accepting Anything Less Than Great Product. The article illustrates how we as consumers sometimes settle for less than great, and also how sometimes service providers do the same to just get by. It’s sad but true.


Novell – Made in America!

Novell wedding band factory workers.

 

All Novell Design Studio wedding bands are made one at a time by individual craftsmen. Our designs are not mass produced using a cold, sterile manufacturing assembly line, nor is anything created in an overseas facility. These images are from our East Coast factory. Sometimes a dozen people have had a hand in making your wedding band as perfect as it can be!


Wedding Band Ideas: Example of Novell’s Customization

What is a wedding ring? Well, it is round. It goes on your finger. And it’s plain and boring. Wait! Not exactly!

Novell specializes in making changes to our designs, so that our customers can get exactly what they want. Whether it is created in platinum, palladium or gold, and with or without diamonds and gemstones, a Novell wedding band is a special one-of-a-kind creation. Your ring is not pulled from a shelf. Instead, it is created in your size, your desired width and in the metal you choose. On a budget? No problem. Novell wedding rings can be created in various weights as well. Why settle for a cheap alternative metal wedding band that can’t be sized?

Need proof? Then check this out!

Novell wedding band

A customer for one of our Texas retailers asked if we could channel set diamonds across the top of one of our engraved designs. Our answer? Of course we can! Customization is Novell’s specialty! And our wedding bands are made in America. All special orders are fulfilled in about two weeks, so don’t be afraid to ask for exactly what you want.


Novell Featured on Made in America Movement Website!

Novell has always been a made in America bridal jewelry company. From our humble beginnings in 1986, all of our precious metal wedding bands and engagement rings have been individually created at our facility. And to help celebrate how proud we are that our manufacturing has been able to stay in America in such a tough economy, while more and more jewelry companies are importing cheaper (and in many cases INFERIOR) products, Novell has become a highlighted company on the Made in America Movement website.

Kansas City jewelry store Tivol adds Novell wedding bands to website.

 

Kansas City jewelry store – and authorized Novell wedding band retailer – Tivol now features Novell wedding bands on their website. Tivol is a relatively new customer that carries a great selection of classic designs and newer wedding band styles.

More about Tivol:

In 1910, Charles Tivol opened a jewelry shop in downtown Kansas City. Perched on a bench, he carefully crafted each piece of jewelry and set a timeless standard for enduring workmanship and style.Charles also handed down his unrelenting passion for quality. His son Harold began working in the store as a boy and now serves as chairman of the company. Under Harold’s leadership, a second store was opened in 1951 on the Country Club Plaza. Soon, it was outselling the downtown store, and the two later merged.

Nearly a century after its doors opened, Tivol‘s tradition continues with its third generation. Under the leadership of Harold’s daughter Cathy, Tivol has continued to flourish. A second location was opened in 1994 in Johnson County’s Hawthorne Plaza. Tivol added a third location in 2006 at Briarcliff Village in the heart of the Northland.

Now that the business has attained the 100-year mark, Tivol is going stronger than ever, maintaining our tradition of offering the world’s most beautiful jewelry and timepieces in a variety of price ranges.

Cute fact – Every dog who visits the Tivol Doggie Bar on the Country Club Plaza can be seen live online! See Spot. See Spot run. See Spot online via the Tivol Doggie Cam.

A note from Novell’s Marketing Director Rick Mulholland:

Novell has recently added a profile to a great up-and-coming bridal website – WhereToGetEngaged.com. I am a big fan of this website as it is much less cluttered than TheKnot.com or Brides.com, and they really seem to understand what an advertisers needs are as far as tools for social networking. I have added the top wedding bands that Novell will be promoting over the next year. The latest and greatest Novell products, such as TATU wedding bands and our new bridal jewelry collection, will also be added in the near future as well. One nice feature is that retailers can also create a profile, link to Novell as a vendor, and even have the ability to highlight products that are for sale. For these reasons, I encourage every one of Novell’s referred retailers to link to us on WhereToGetEngaged.com, as well as our Facebook page, too.

Here are the links:

Novell attended The Smart Jewelry Show (in Chicago).

Well, our trip to The Smart Jewelry Show in Chicago is over!

As an exhibitor, the plus of the show is that the experience is very different from the usual trade shows, and due to the unique “bells and whistles” that are offered, the mentality of the show visitor seems to be more refreshed. I took some time to attend a seminar or two, and saw that the fellow attendees were really into the subject matter. All in all, I can say that exhibiting at The Smart Jewelry Show was a little bit like going to Jewelry School.

See what Novell was showing at The Smart Jewelry Show.

Novell and Wright and Lato can be seen during The Smart Jewelry Show at booth 1813. The Smart Jewelry Show takes place from April 24th – April 25th. Retailers attending this industry-only event are welcome to stop by and see what’s new and upcoming. Jewelry stores should also ask Novell’s Marketing Director how they can earn even greater visibility online. See you there!

New platinum wedding bands added to Novell website.

Recently added to Novell’s wedding band website are several new platinum wedding bands that are designed to be affordable.

Platinum is a naturally white metal that can potentially last the test of time. A platinum wedding band or engagement ring can literally become a piece of heirloom jewelry that can remain in your family for generations. When you scratch platinum, you don’t really remove much metal, so you can have your platinum wedding bands refinished to look like new over and over. Keep in mind that nearly all jewelry will show signs of wear and tear over time in some manner.

Wedding bands with rounded edges featured on MarthaStewartWeddings.com.

MarthaStewartWeddings.com featured N’Oval wedding bands by Novell. N’Oval wedding bands are Novell’s answer to the plain band, but with a twist. All edges are rounded on each side for a natural and more comfortable fit.

From MarthaStewartWeddings.com:
Pass the Rings, Please

“Here’s a touching ritual you can add to your wedding day. Pass a length of ribbon through the rows, and during the ceremony, have your rings threaded along the ribbon by your guests so each can bless the marriage before you slip them on. Rings by Novell.”

Platinum wedding bands featured in new video.

Some of Novell’s highly publicized platinum wedding bands are featured in a snazzy new video created by Platinum Guild International.

Platinum really is the premium metal for wedding bands, engagement rings and jewelry in general. Platinum is strong and durable, so a diamond set in platinum is secure; it really is a great way to protect your diamond investment. You may have to pay a little more for platinum now, but you literally get a piece of jewelry that will last a lifetime.

Novell’s brand new platinum video is also available on YouTube.com.


LA Times highlights new platinum engagement ring.

New engagement ring featured in LA Times.

New engagement ring featured in LA Times.

On January 6th, 10th and 11th 2010, LA Times included several ads featuring one of Novell’s upcoming platinum engagement ring styles. Novell is extremely excited about the preview press we have been able to receive from LA Times and look forward to launching the new bridal line in the very near future. While newspaper circulation overall is suffering in the United States, longstanding titles such as the LA Times, NY Times and Wall Street Journal still have their solid audience. In particular, special Sunday supplements dedicated to weddings and events like The Academy Awards perform extremely well. The Los Angeles area can also be considered a region of trendsetting consumers, so it makes complete sense that new products should be presented to future brides and grooms in this valuable area.  This platinum engagement ring will soon be available through an authorized Novell retailer. Please contact one for all pricing and manufacturing options.

Wedding band video shows Novell’s customization abilities.

This item was originally included in our Novell News section on www.novelldesignstudio.com.

Novell Design Studio, an American wedding band and bridal jewelry manufacturer with over 22 years in the jewelry industry, is proud to announce the launch of its latest online video brochure. This brand new video illustrates Novell’s unique customization capabilities with several wedding band morphing segments set to original music. Any average consumer looking to purchase a wedding band can learn about what makes Novell different from nearly all other manufacturers; the ability to make almost all of their wedding band designs wider, narrower, in different metals (platinum, palladium or gold), with different finishes, and much more. Why settle for ordinary, when only the best American-made wedding bands and bridal jewelry should do?
