Marlene Richey writes new series focused on jewelry industry influencers

Every jeweler has a creation story. Usually that story involves a teacher, mentor or designer who had a big impact early in a jeweler’s career. Those stories, taken together, tell a larger tale of who is shaping the contemporary jewelry industry and where it is headed.

Marlene Richey, author of “Profiting by Design,” is known for helping jewelers build successful business strategies, but this fall she is shifting her focus from business to design. In a new series for The Studio, Rio Grande’s blog, she explores industry influencers and trendsetters who are shaping (or have shaped) the contemporary jewelry landscape in the last century. Instead of a one-way conversation, she hopes to initiate a digital conversation with jewelers and designers.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Bruce Brown’s seminal surfing film “The Endless Summer”. This year also marks 50 years since Marcus Reller registered the Lone Palm symbol as the trademark for his burgeoning souvenir charm business in Miami.

In search of his own “endless summer,” Marcus abandoned the cold winters of New York City to become one of the first jewelry manufacturers to open up in South Florida. Serving the resort markets of the Sunshine State and the Caribbean, the Lone Palm mark was a particularly apt symbol in the heyday of the traditional charm bracelet.

(NEW YORK) - White Pine Jewelry Solutions, a division of White Pine Trading LLC, one of the world’s largest recycled diamond companies, plans to help jewelers ramp up their competitiveness via the launch of an innovative consignment program. 

The new program aims to help retailers drive traffic to their stores and build market dominance with new styles, categories and price points with no up front costs to the jeweler. “This solution is different from others on the market because it gives medium-to-large chains, or high-volume, independent stores, access to a broad array of value-priced jewelry that is tailored to their needs, rather than the limited selection offered under most consignment programs,” explained Michael Lebowitz, Director of Jewelry for White Pine Jewelry Solutions.
