He’s taking a very straightforward approach.

As the jewelry industry frets about how to appeal to millennials, who don’t always seem to hold diamonds in the same regard that older generations do, Colorado jewelry designer Todd Reed isn’t content to sit and ponder the issue.

He’s asking the target market directly, the Daily Camera reports. 

Boulder-based Todd Reed Jewelry has started a nationwide “listening campaign” to find out what the younger generation really thinks, according to the newspaper.

Reed has noted that millennial customers are often less interested in diamonds as a status symbol and more concerned with getting something unique. They sometimes tell him, “I want something really cool that doesn’t look like I’ve spent a lot of money,” the Daily Camera reports.

Margot Ricci  said she and her fiance, Austin Bush, were happy to be among the first half-dozen couples in Boulder to be part of one of the jeweler’s listening events. She said she appreciated the fact that “someone wanted to tell a positive story about me as a millennial.”

Todd Reed Jewelry also recently announced the launch of its Forged Your Own Way bridal set giveaway. The one month digital campaign, which was set to launch on Feb. 14, asks millennials to submit a short video detailing how they are forging their own way in life and love. The winner, to be announced in April, will receive a complimentary set of wedding bands.

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
