Monique's New Blog


As a business owner in the largest Jewelry retail building in Chicago I want to start a blog in helping buyers understand products and Jewelers.
I started selling Jewelry over 30 years ago when I recognized people would shop directly with me and drive to the store to buy fine jewelry. Boy has that changed !
The younger generation is enthralled with online purchasing and has taken jewelry purchasing to another level. They would rather buy something on Ebay that may turn their fingers colors or break in a couple of days  then pay for good jewelry. So how does someone who loves beautiful fine jewelry really stay in business?
I had a customer come in last week and said he wanted to spend $10,000 for a diamond for his wife. What I normally ask is what kind of shape, clarity and size would you like. His reply was he didn’t really care about the clarity and the color  but he wanted a specific size. Lesson number 1- As a wholesaler I always sell down to my customers which means I will examine the situation and then make sure the customer doesn’t pay more than the dollar he gave me unless he wanted to add things to his request. In this case he was astonished at what I was able to provide by the quality of the diamond and it was $2,000 cheaper than what he had planned to spend. What this does is bring me more appreciative customers and many more referrals. The industry is very difficult but your customer needs which includes budgets and product are what drives my business.
