The JCK 2007 State of the Industry Report: Part 2

What is the most critical issue facing the jewelry industry in the next couple of years, and how can we deal with it?

That was the question JCK posed for its 2007 State of the Industry report. To answer it, we went to experts and leaders, including retailers, manufacturers, suppliers, consultants, educators, and association executives, all seasoned observers of the jewelry business. The resulting opinions offer acute insights and practical solutions.

Last month we ran eight of 16 responses in JCK and posted all 16 on our Web site at JCKonline. This month we’re running the second installment. We also want your opinions. Tell us what you think (in 300 words or less) by letter, fax, or e-mail, and we’ll print your views in a future issue and on our Web site.
