The Plumb Club to Introduce Jewelers Resource Center…
The Plumb Club has announced the impending debut of its Jewelers Resource Center, an immersive, virtual 3D environment part of its TPC-365 platform. A month-long celebration will start on March 2.
The Jewelers Resource Center will offer a comprehensive, searchable database of jewelry industry knowledge, offered in readable, auditory, or visual formats. The platform also allows visitors to stay up-to-date with industry headlines; see daily precious metals pricing; source qualified jewelry service providers; and view a library of jewelry tables, charts, articles, and links to help with daily business needs.
The kickoff event will be held on March 2 at 2 p.m. ET, to give visitors a virtual tour of the Jewelers Resource Center, followed by a presentation of “Is a Tsunami Coming: The Diamond Dilemma,” an educational session featuring a panel of Elliot Tannenbaum of Leo Schachter, Dave Meleski of The Richline Group, and Sue Rechner of WD Lab Grown Diamonds. The panel will discuss industry issues—as well as external issues—that spur volatility and affect diamond pricing.
Following the presentation, retail attendees will be given the opportunity to participate in a scavenger hunt, with multiple prizes from Dom Perignon champagne and Godiva chocolate to facilitated in-store sales training and an expert website analysis.
