Gems One launches Epic 101 specialty cut diamond

Gems One, a global diamond jewelry manufacturer with offices in New York, Dayton, Mumbai, and Hong  Kong, has announced the  launch of a new specialty cut diamond, the Epic 101. According to Anuj Jain, President of Gems One: “This new cut represents the absolute state of the art in diamond design and architecture. Adding 43 facets in precisely the right places allows us to dramatically enhance the light performance of each stone, yet the actual weight loss in doing so is insignificant.  The loose diamond business has been extremely important to us for several decades, both here in America as well as in Asia, so we believe we can take advantage of our existing strengths to rapidly build a distribution network for this new product.”

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.

It’s an Endless Summer at RellerGold

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.
