Moissanite

Moissanite is a unique, near colourless lab-created jewel with fire & brilliance unmatched by any other jewel or gemstone. Harder than sapphire or ruby and second in hardness only to diamond, Moissanite was first discovered in nature by French Nobel prize winner Dr. Henri Moissan in 1893. Women around the world have embraced this magnificent jewel and are rewarding themselves with the big, bold look of Moissanite jewellery.

Branded Jewellery

Good quality branded jewellery is a growing market.

At present it only represents 6% of global sales, but more and more consumers are seeking a brand name with cachet. According to the New York based Luxury Institute, jewellery brands from Tiffany, Cartier, De Beers, Gucci and Bulgari lead the luxury awareness list. Those retailers are closely followed by Van Cleef & Arpels, Harry Winston, Chanel, Dior and Mikimoto. These are the luxury jewellery brands most consumers know by name.

Branded jewellery is a finding a corner of the marketplace. Mont Blanc for example, are looking for special premises to promote their newer jewellery lines, which they believe demand more space to show it to best effect. Mont Blanc specialise in a unique six faceted diamond cut, and called unsurprisingly ‘the Mont Blanc cut’. Customers are willing to spend as long as the item is what they want even if the price is high.

‘Want it’ – so ‘buy it’. ‘Not sure’ – so ‘leave it’.

Modern fashion design houses are also entering the jewellery market. Badgley and Mischka have launched a new line of costume jewellery in USA. They are jewellery items which women find perfect for travel. Badgley and Mischka feature day, evening and bridal jewellery. Prices range from £50 to £500.

Guess is another brand that is promoting its range of Guess branded jewellery across Europe. With its youthful look it intends to rival jewellery brands like those of Dolce and Gabbana.
