Fine jewelry has a new reality — with brands, retailers and consumers adapting to elevated prices in the sector.
That’s not to say that higher prices have had a negative impact, but they have forced houses to innovate. Gold might have climbed to almost $1,900 an ounce last August, but there’s still an abundance of gold necklaces, earrings, rings and bracelets that will be on display at the Nielsen Jewelry Group-produced Couture show.
