(NEW YORK) - Ashi Diamonds is proud to introduce its exciting “I Do” collection - an impressive selection of complete bridal engagement sets that includes exclusive designs, elegant styling, high-quality craftsmanship and affordable price points. This unique collection was created to offer independent retail jewelers the tools they need to recapture a major slice of the bridal business lost to mall jewelry chains, department stores and other mass merchants.
The dazzling “I Do” collection features more than 150 brand new, beautiful designs that mirror fine designer styles found in higher-end branded jewelry stores. Each set includes an engagement ring with a beautifully bright, eye clean center stone in round and princess cuts ranging in size from 1/5 carat to 7/8 carat, along with matching wedding bands. Total diamond weights for the bridal sets range from 1/2 carat to 2.00 carats. The “I Do” collection features contemporary, traditional and vintage styles, with sets priced at $995 to $5,995 retail - a price range that represents 40% of all bridal engagement sets sold in the United States!
Along with its impressive range of breathtaking designs, the “I Do” collection displays an amazing level of craftsmanship and attention to detail normally associated with branded diamond jewelry sold in upscale jewelry stores and boutiques. Pieces in the collection feature handset stones, hand scroll engraving and hand mill graining.
The “I Do” collection is sold exclusively in independent jewelry stores around the country that put a premium on quality, service and value. The fact that this collection is priced in the “sweet spot” representing 40% of the U.S. market for bridal sets means full margins and quick turns for retailers who make the commitment to “I Do” Marketing Program. In other words, you can regain some of the lucrative affordable bridal jewelry market you have lost over the years to the majors – and your customers will be thrilled to have the opportunity to get a beautiful, upscale branded bridal look at an affordable price.
Each set in the “I Do” collection comes with an exclusive diamond jewelry certificate from Swiss Gemological Laboratory. Your customers can go online at www.swissgemlab.com and through its innovative Online Certificate Tracking Software, they can track, view, zoom, print or e-mail their unique jewelry certificate, and also revisit your store where they made the original purchase. They will see your company logo, store information, a store map, store picture and style details, as well as a link to your store’s website.
For today’s savvy jewelry customers, certification from an independent gemological laboratory is a must to give them confidence and peace of mind about their jewelry purchase and tangible proof of their jewelry’s identity, quality and authenticity for appraisal/insurance purposes. More confident customers means more diamond bridal sales for you, the retailer – and the online certificate gives you another chance to engage your bridal customers and turn them into lifetime repeat customers.
In addition, Ashi is offering a complimentary, branded “I Do” B2C Bridal Store Website that will be customized for Approved Retail Jewelry Partners who make the commitment to carry the exquisite “I Do” collection of diamond bridal sets.
