Fall Special Events and Super Sale. Diamond and gemstone markets become more challenging

It's good to be back after a long hiatus of this newsletter by mostly enjoying life. Fall is fast approaching with local arts events schedule, and I'm offering everyone a chance to own beautiful gemstones at wholesale prices through September. 

Diamond and gemstone markets are shifting focus as some prices fall and others increase. Metals just wobble in value while gold jewelry sales decline worldwide and silver jewelry continues to expand with designers as well as mass market. So much happening so read all about it.
