The 310-page paperback guide is geared toward jewelry entrepreneurs looking to build their brands by sharing how-tos on gaining customer awareness, building a consistent ad strong reputation, and creating sustainable growth. The book comprises 18 chapters and covers topics such as setting a marketing foundation, utilizing data, choosing the right marketing mix, measuring results, and managing growth.

“I kept speaking to jewelry entrepreneurs who felt frustrated by lackluster marketing results. Unsure about how to assemble an individualized strategy, they spread themselves too thin across all marketing platforms to end up feeling overwhelmed and defeated,” said Wirstiuk in a statement on her inspiration for the book.

The International Gemological Institute (IGI) has announced a new design for its identification and grading reports. The update, which debuts this month, comes 45 years after IGI issued its first diamond report in Antwerp, Belgium.
