Platinum Designers and Manufacturers Invited to Put Product on New PGI Website For Press

New York—Platinum jewelry designers are encouraged to submit product photos and press materials for the newly-launched Platinum Guild International USA dedicated press website.

PGI-USA is one of the first jewelry associations to offer the media unprecedented access to view and download the latest news, photos, and videos directly from a unique URL at any time.

Platinum jewelry designers and related associations are encouraged to submit their latest platinum product photos and press materials for consideration on the PGI press site.

“Having your brand’s product photos and news featured on the site will undoubtedly generate consistent awareness for your platinum designs, and increase your opportunity for press coverage,” says Huw Daniel, president of PGI-USA.
