Presidium’s Synthetic Diamond Tester and More Stuff for Your Store for June

THE REAL DEAL

1 Lab-grown diamonds
are virtually identical
to the natural variety and
are poised to become more
widely available than ever.
A little tool can make a big
difference in differentiating
between the two. The
Presidium
synthetic diamond
tester sounds an alert when
a Type IIa stone — which is
likely to be man-made — is
placed inside. Both loose
and mounted diamonds can
be tested in the portable
device. kassoy.com.

PRICE: $649


ON THE CASE

2A boutique’s glittering
jewels deserve a perch
that’s equally dazzling,
especially since snazzy
presentation can’t help but
improve sales. Tecno Display’s
statuesque case gives
precious baubles a fitting
place to reside, with halogen
or LED lighting to keep
them in sharp focus. It measures
74.5 inches tall and 45
inches wide and is available
in brushed gold laminate
plus an array of standard
and custom finishes.tecnodisplay.com.

PRICE: from $2,835

MATERIAL
COMFORTS

3 Jewelry doesn’t always
require a flashy backdrop
to shine. Rio Grande’s
burlap-covered display adds
a warm, down-to-earth
charm to showing bracelets
or watches. The neutral
color will fit in with any
store’s color scheme and the
nubby, textured material
complements décor from
bohemian to rustic-chic.riogrande.com

PRICE: starting from $26.48

4 Anyone who saw a web
meme involving a blue
and black dress (or was it
white and gold? …) knows
judging colors is subjective.
That can spell trouble when
talking gemstones with
a client or colleague. The
World of Color Communication
System for
Gem-World International helps
eliminate ambiguity. The
kit includes a master comparison
book of colors, plus
a gem crown and supplemental
book with charts to
simplify describing, grading
and pricing colored stones. gemguide.com.

PRICE: $495


CAN’T BE BEAT

5 Fretz’s hammer line
has a loyal — some
would say fanatical — following.
To ensure its quality
tools are widely available
(and to keep low-quality
copycats at bay), the brand
introduced the Maker
line, which delivers the
same performance as the
premium collection but
at a lower price, thanks to
handles in a different wood
and slightly redesigned
heads. Buying a five-piece
set of Precionsmith Maker
hammers only multiplies
the savings.ottofrei.com.

PRICE: $135

It’s Going to Set Us Up Very Nicely for Retirement

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
