Tech: Prepping for ETS at Mandalay Bay, the GIA’s New iPad App

Tech Checklist JCK Las Vegas isn’t just for jewelry. The Equipment, Technology & Supplies show (Mandalay Bay May 31–June 4) houses the technology that creates and helps sell the designs on the floor. So what are ETS-bound retailers searching for this year? CAD equipment is the thing for Jon Walp, general manager of Long Jewelers in Virginia Beach, Va. Ross Ashley, owner of Ashley ­Jewellers in Hamilton, Ontario, is eyeing “diamond scales and tools.” Derrick Thompson, owner of Bob Thompson Jewellers in Ottawa, Ontario, was looking for lighting last year; this year, it’s “store displays and designs.” On June 1, a New Technology seminar moderated by JCK’s Rob Bates features reps from ­ImaGem, Kassoy, V-Bay, and Fire Polish touting new breakthroughs. ‘Gems’ for the iPad Courtesy of GIA Gems & Gemology, the quarterly journal of the Gemological Institute
