The Insider

The Insider is a column about my observations, starting with the jewelry industry.

  • Volume I - Discusses the impact of an upcoming, potential block buster movie on the subject of conflict diamonds. I am most interested in irony: the gap between appearance and reality, our actions and their consequences. Just look behind the curtain of mass marketing and you may just find the fearsome Wizard of Oz.

  • Volume 2 - I am writing this article because several stores who I sell to have asked me for website tips. I am always happy to help them.
  • Volume 3 - Unless they have unlimited resources, those jewelers who waited to get on line until the last year or two are going to have really play catch up to garner the true potential of the internet.
