Rapaport Reporting: Jewelry Industry Inflation

From: rapaportgroup  | Jun 23, 2011  | 95 views
Jewelry inflation in the U.S. continues as the price of precious metals and diamonds climb. According to comScore, the popularity of online video and the ever-changing habits of viewers present an opportunity to advertise your brand.
A report from Rice Universityassociate professor of management, Utpal Dholakia, businesses can gain traction using “daily deals” websites, but there are many elements a brand must consider. Over the next few years, it is likely that daily deal sites will have to settle for lower shares of revenues from businesses compared with their current levels, and it will be harder and more expensive for them to find viable candidates to fill their pipelines of daily deals, according to Dholakia. In his third study – the most exhaustive study done to date on the daily deals industry – Dholakia found that there is very little difference between companies in the ever-expanding competition for consumer dollars, and it will be difficult for any one site to stand out from the others.”

Raymond Lee Jewelers How To Know She Is The One

If you are over 30 years old and in a relationship for longer than a year the thought of her being “The One” may have crossed your mind. Unsure of what “The One”  really means or feels like can cause much confusion. What is further confusing is when you ask people they respond by saying you will just know. What does that mean,   just know? How can you be expected to just know when you’re not even sure what you are having for dinner, let alone the rest of your life.  At Raymond Lee Jewelers we answer this life-changing question on a regular basis. The best way to know if she is “The One” is to picture yourself 10 years from now. Is she in that picture or are flying solo? If you are uncertain of what your future holds, look at moments you have spent with her when something really great or awful has happened to her, did it feel like it happened to you too? (There other ways to tell and will be in future blogs)  Since Raymond Lee Jewelers  has been selling engagement rings for 26 years, and counting,  we have seen every type of relationship reach “The One” status. What can be passed one from all these years of experience is “The One” status is reserved for only the most special connections, and to us at Raymond Lee Jewelers it is obvious which connections are the “The One”.
