Prestige Promenade Announces Expanded Retailer Programs

Prestige Promenade—a collective of the world’s leading jewelry designers and manufacturers—has announced an expanded offering for retailers at its JCK Las Vegas pavilion this year. The new offerings are as follows:

  • Retailer hosting: This new program recognizes top-tier buyers and provides a full suite of services for qualified retailers at the ARIA Hotel, including accommodation, morning reception, and luxury transportation to and from the JCK show.
  • Prestige Celebration: Prestige Promenade will host a reception and entertainment on the show floor to close the first day JCK Las Vegas.
  • International Saturday: Prestige has teamed with JCK to host a breakfast for international buyers on Saturday morning, giving those retailers new to the show the opportunity to privately view the Prestige collection.
  • Prestige Retailer Program: An exclusive list of customers designated Prestige Retailers has been created, giving those that earned the title full access to all the amenities that the pavilion offers, including lunches within the pavilion and invitations to all Prestige events.

“Prestige Promenade has always been focused on providing the most elegant environment for the high end to do business in Las Vegas,” said Prestige Promenade president Steve Mazza. “Building on this heritage, we felt that 2013 was the right time to really increase our offerings to our retailer community.”

Retailers interested in additional information about the new programs should contact executive director Chris Casey at case@prestigepromenade.com.

James Allen Unveils New Diamond Display Technology James Allen fancy color diamonds

Luxury jewelry brand James Allen has unveiled its new rebranded website, with an emphasis on the exclusive Diamond Display Technology, which magnifies diamonds 15X in high resolution, allowing users to interact with diamonds in 360 degrees. Thanks to this never-before-seen innovation, customers can experience a diamond’s shape, cut, color, clarity, and sparkle from the comfort of their homes, adding more transparency to online diamond retail.

“When purchasing an engagement ring, the diamond you choose makes all the difference, and it needs to be seen,” James Allen marketing director David Berkovits said in a press release. “A grading certificate is not enough because it cannot describe a diamond’s beauty and sparkle. Some online retailers try to describe their diamonds, but do you really want to buy something so meaningful without seeing it first?”

James Allen also has expanded its variety of diamonds to include a wide selection of canary, pink, green, orange, blue, and chocolate brown fancy color diamonds as well as natural precious gemstones as an alternative center stone.

For more information and to see the collections, visit the rebranded site at jamesallen.com.
