The Month In Review: August August 31, 2016 (0 comments)


Merrick, NY—Summertime and the livin’ is easy, sang Ella Fitzgerald. But for jewelers in both New York and Philadelphia’s famed jewelry districts, this summer is about preserving their beloved street, not taking it easy. One retailer hits big success by adding Instagram to her marketing mix, while the burgeoning LGBT market can be a boon for jewelers. Change comes to a longstanding tradition, as the 24 Karat Club of the City of New York has to move its legendary banquet out of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel after 100 years, and the industry also bid a sad farewell to Simone Lipton, a legend in the trade show sector. In case you missed any, here were the top stories from August:
