I just met with a fellow jewelry designer. And of course we chatted about the economy and the future of our fine luxury product. She also incorporates stunning diamonds and gold in her jewelry. I feel the New Year will be a more accurate gauge of what is to come in fine jewelry. Jewelry has such an intrinsic value that I think it will stand the test of time and so many buyers see it as an investment. Diamonds will always be a girl’s best friend.
