Helping JCK’s jewelry-store-owner readers source product is one of my duties as a trade journalist and market editor, so when a retailer from Northern California reached out to me yesterday for suggestions, I was delighted to assist.
The merchant asked for makers of “classically inspired diamond initial pendants—simple, understated, with timeless fonts, and high-quality diamonds in gold,” he said. “Our customers appreciate classic/traditional design and workmanship. A handmade piece is always a plus, but in a refined state, not rustic or craft oriented.”
The following 11 firms are ones I suggested. Have a hole in your inventory? I would be happy to help you. Email me at JHeebner@jckonline.com with your request.
