Helping Hands

Seeing how our jewelry family has stepped up to help after the flooding in Houston (through groups like Jewelers Helping Jewelers) is just awesome! Even more with Irma … jewelers are offering rooms, their homes, temporary work and even mobile homes to those affected. You rock, people! — Elysia Demers, Barnhardt Jewelers, Spencer, NC

Confidence Clues

5 For the last couple of years, I have been saying that there is no consumer confidence. Well let me tell you, I see this changing for the better weekly. People are not afraid to open their wallets. — Robert M. Katz, Goldbar Jewelers, Virginia Beach, VA

Down on Designers

It’s really becoming a problem with how many designers are selling their merchandise on their own websites. It used to be a few and now it’s many. This greed is not good for anyone in our business. — Marc Majors, Sam L. Majors, Midland, TX

Online Woes

We used to have a few dishonest stores in our city and we thought, “How do they stay in business?” Now we have dishonest “stores” popping up by the hundreds online. It seems the easy money is to set up an e-com site that lies like the road and doesn’t worry about honesty or accountability. — David Blitt, Troy Shoppe Jewellers, Calgary, Alberta
