The collection, which is set to debut at the Couture show in Las Vegas and the EMA Jewelry location at JCK Las Vegas, is comprised of fully lab-grown jewelry in the bridal category.
“The strategy of utilizing lab-grown diamonds has always been a part of our business plan with ALOR,” said CEO of EMA Jewelry, Eddie Weiss, in a press release. “When we began to visit stores during our soft launch, we realized that the time for us to launch the EcoEarth collection should be sooner rather than later, as retailers were asking us for a designer bridal lab-grown collection.”
The collection, which is similar in appearance to ALOR’s recent Down the Aisle line, will contain fully mounted and certified center stones provided exclusively by Diamond Foundry. “We are excited to be partnering with the ALOR brand and the EMA team to bring one of the first fully lab-grown diamond bridal collections to the marketplace,” said head of commercial relations at Diamond Foundry Alon Ben-Shohsan in a press release.

Gabriel & Co. to Launch Omnichannel Strategy at JCK
Fine jeweler Gabriel & Co. has announced that it will launch a new omnichannel experience at this year’s JCK Las Vegas show, offering a new way to interact with all parties involved in the buying process.
With the new service, Gabriel & Co. allows shoppers to select the retail partner through which they’d like to purchase a desired product, shipping that product to the selected retailer for the customer to see—and potentially purchase—in person. If a purchase is made, the retailer takes a share of the profit, even though the transaction originated on Gabriel & Co.’s website; this an effort for the brand to reward its longtime retail partners by promoting foot traffic to their locations.
Also an addition to the new omnichannel, the Gabriel Magic app, a 360-degree virtual reality tool for viewing jewelry, will be available for demonstration at the Gabriel & Co. booth during the show. To see it and all of the company’s product offerings, visit booth S10405 at JCK Las Vegas, and go to gabrielny.com.
