Canada-based jewelry retailer Spence Diamonds has announced plans to expand into the U.S.
market with stores opening in Austin, TX, on Nov. 7 and in San Jose, CA, on Nov. 10.

The company will open in Scottsdale, AZ, in the first quarter of 2017 and will soon announce additional markets, according to a press release.

The retailer calls itself a “jewelry disruptor” in part because of its line of “Spence Artisan Created Diamonds.”

“We have reimagined the experience of the diamond business by creating an environment that is open, bright and transparent,” said Jim Schneider, president of Spence Diamonds. “Watching a diamond being created from a ball of plasma while exploring jewelry in open cases without the traditional barriers is a refreshing concept.”

The stores will also sell traditional mined diamonds.

The company, founded in 1978, said it “has secured prime retail locations with high foot traffic including Santana Row in San Jose and The Domain in Austin.”

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
