Hi readers! Thank you for logging onto the Style 360 blog as
often as you do. This blog—which has been reinvigorated in the past six months
with a mini-facelift and almost-daily posts—now entertains nearly 2,000 visitors a week, and monthly visits have just broken the 10,000
mark. Thanks to Alexa.com (I installed the toolbar on my computer), I’ve been able to watch JCKonline.com strengthen and grow, with the site’s overall popularity steadily increasing on a daily basis. Plus, there will be more updates to come in the next few months as JCK
continues to enhance its online space.

of the most high-design merchandise mixes in the country, and featured content

Jewelry selections shown on the blog feature those of
artists who are high-profile and lesser-known, seen in market visits, and those with works that retailers consider to be among their best sellers. The jewelry shown is trendy now as well as poised for popularity, and includes red carpet stunners, newly
launched collections from jewelry shows around the world, pieces or trends of
note in the mainstream press, fashion and jewelry trend reports, as well as some beautiful selections that just
couldn’t fit into our print publication.

function or sending me a private note at JHeebner@jckonline.com.

in the most appropriate place available.)
