Plumb Club’s August Podcasts Help Retailers Understand Supply Chain and Diamond Trends

(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK — The Plumb Club’s podcasts for August are now available online. This month’s podcasts, from industry veterans and Plumb Club Members, help retailers understand the diamond supply chain, give retailers a look at diamond trends and provide a point of view on what the future holds for the diamond jewelry industry. Both podcasts will provide listeners valuable insight, as well as easily actionable steps to help retailers.

Shortening The Bridge in Supply Chain – Urmil Gajera – Aneri Jewels: Before diamond jewelry reaches a retailer to be sold, it typically travels a long supply chain, passing through many hands and companies. Urmil Gajera takes the listener through the supply chain journey and points out the benefits to consumers, manufacturers, and the industry overall, that are derived by shortening the supply chain and working with responsible suppliers. Urmil Gajera is involved in every aspect of the supply chain for his company, Aneri Jewels, one of the major jewelry manufacturers and distributors in North America, since 2009.

Diamond Jewelry Trends – Sagar Manilal – Indigo Jewelry: Consumer buying habits have changed recently. Sagar Manilal describes how fancy-shaped diamonds are taking a bigger piece of the sales pie and how the availability of easier financing is resulting in higher-priced items being sold at retail. Further, he discusses the impact of technology and how it has become a powerful tool for the jewelry consumer and provides some thoughts on what’s in store for the future. Sagar Manilal manages sales for Indigo Jewelry, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the S. Vinodkumar Group of companies, one of the most renowned diamond and jewelry companies in the world.

The Plumb Club podcasts, which are added monthly, provide strategies, knowledge, and immediately actionable steps from industry leaders, that help retailers across a variety of business areas. The newest podcasts, as well as the previous ones, are available on The Plumb Club website under the “Resources” tab.



When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
