DALLAS — Price-oriented chains such as Costco and Wal-Mart might move huge quantities of gold and diamonds, but they don’t often make a big effort to romance the stone.
It seems that the more budget-oriented the store, the less a shopper can expect to talk to a knowledgeable salesperson. During informal visits by WWD to Wal-Mart, Sam’s Club and Costco, sales associates did not know the term “eternity ring,” and only the Costco associate knew the meaning of a diamond certification.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
