JCK Web site offers Lexis-Nexis r news service to users

Research powerhouse Lexis-Nexis r and JCK Magazine have teamed up to provide the jewelry industry with the freshest and most comprehensive jewelry news coverage in the world.

Through custom-made jewelry search strings in Lexis-Nexis’s Web Publisher research tool, JCK scans thousands of international news publications in seconds, posting only the freshest and most relevant news and trends articles under the appropriate Lexis-Nexis headline on the JCK site. The new feature gives jewelers a daily “one-stop-shop” for global news and trends specific to the jewelry industry.

Know about potential crime schemes before they hit your town by checking out the jewelers’ security information section.
