2012 JCK Jewellery Conference
I attend jewellery conference in many places every year, as a designer I want to see what jewelry trends are in and get ideas and get inspired, as a GIA graduate gemologist I always check out what’s new at GIA booth (I found a book all about gemstone inclusions this year), and finally as a jewelry store owner, I am always on the lookout for unique pieces for my Secret Sapphire jewellery boutique in Yaletown.
Hearts on Fire is the only diamond brand I carry as it’s cut to perfection under 100- 120 power magnification, 10 times the normal industry standard. As a gemologist, I could not believe the precision of their diamond cutting, to know more, here’s some HOF official behind the scenes videos I highly recommend you to watch.
I met up with Hearts on Fire and discuss what clients like and what’ new in the industry, also brought in more engagement ring settings for the store and a lot of small pendants for everyday wear!
Another designer I carry is Margo Morrison. I am a big fan myself and wear one every day with my Hearts on Fire diamond necklace. I just love the fact that you can layer a Margo Morrison necklace with everything you already own, a solitaire pendant, a diamond cross, a diamond initial necklace, anything! I have demonstrated how you can do this in my precious post. I met up with Margo to discuss what my clients like and also brought in a few more including raw emerald necklace, some fresh water coin pearl necklace and turquoise necklaces. Come to my store and let me dress you, try it on and you’ll love it!
Finally, I met up with Lori Bonn, the founder and designer of Bonn Bon charm collection I carry in the store. I discovered that Bonn Bon is coming up with a watch charm, I gotta have that myself, as I also wear a Bonn Bon bracelet everyday!
All the new jewelry I am bringing into the store should arrive soon, come check them out!
