It’s a weight exchange with a minimal program fee. Acceptable precious metals for this special opportunity are platinum, gold, and palladium. Is there a better way and time to profit from your under-performing, broken, and damaged merchandise? The GAME is a meticulously planned and executed bridal jewelry stimulus package. It meets the challenges of the hard economy head on!
The Great American Metal Exchange. Novell Design Studio in Rahway, New Jersey, is taking a unique approach to getting its line of entry platinum bridal jewelry into retail stores. Novell has developed what it calls the Great American Metal Exchange (GAME). It will offer its Studio Platinum Collection at a significant discount to qualifying retailers (they must be committed to the bridal business), and will take unwanted platinum, palladium, or gold inventory as total or partial payment. Novell’s goal is to stimulate sales of platinum bridal jewelry.
“Right now, retailers are apathetic about platinum, and we’re hoping to get them excited about the category again,” says Novell CEO Bruce Pucciarello. “Given the close relationship between gold and platinum prices right now, we think the time is right.”
Deadline for sending old inventory to Novell is July 1.
