New York, NY—Emily Kaiser has joined the Suna Bros. sales team as senior business development manager for the Platinum Born collection, an innovative, affordable platinum jewelry collection exclusively distributed in the United States by Suna Bros.
“Emily brings a fresh, new energy to our organization. Her enthusiasm is magnetic and it translates to both customers and consumers,” says Aron Suna, company president. “Her main focus will be sales development and business growth for the Platinum Born collection.”
Emily’s prior experience in the jewelry industry spans from department stores to independent retailers.

Platinum Born is crafted in platinum, the rarest of the precious metals. The necklaces are designed with movable versatility and almost any piece can go from short to long, day to night, adding unique style no matter the occasion.”
Chanel Amping Up Stake In Luxury Watch Arena
London, UK—Luxury fashion house Chanel is betting bigger on luxury watches. After grabbing a 20% stake in upscale watchmaker Montres Journe SA last year, Retail Dive reports the brand is now taking a stake in Swiss watch parts manufacturer Kenissi, which specializes in automatic movements. The move suggests Chanel is very serious about the luxury timepiece market, and Retail Dive says it plans to introduce a new Kenissi-made, Chanel branded model at the Baselworld fair in March.
