On Monday, NPR aired a story on why many jewelry stores choose to tuck away their price tags rather than display them.
For me, the story highlighted two interesting points. Number one, many consumers remain, for reasons I have a hard time understanding because I know the industry so well, inherently distrustful of jewelers.
Jewelry found its way to the 39th annual Hampton Classic Horse Show last week when Carelle debuted its Florette collection there, an 18-karat gold and gemstone line.
Chana Regev, founder and creative director at Carelle, has a long history with the Hamptons, and has always enjoyed the tranquility of the towns.
In continuing with what I think unwittingly might have become another of my beats–weird and interesting jewelry (see: this gemstone cap)–I’ve got another discovery to share with you all.
Industrial designer Naomi Kizhner has developed a line of jewelry called “Energy Addicts.” It was part of Kizhner’s graduation project at Jerusalem’s Hadassah College, reflecting what would happen in an energy crisis in the future and a solution that harnesses the human body, particularly the flow of blood through our veins, as a renewable source of energy.
