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.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
