July 29, 2020 (0 comments)
Merrick, NY—As the coronavirus pandemic rages on, economic news bounces up and down. Encouragingly, the stock market has recouped many of its first-quarter losses, jewelry sales were up markedly in June, and independents say business is holding on. But gold is rocketing, Americans remain anxious, and more companies have announced layoffs. Jewelers, meanwhile, are dealing with both pandemic concerns and social unrest, and talking about how they’re adapting to the strange new world we suddenly find ourselves in. In case you missed any, here were the top stories from July:
