    Jewellery's New Generation Webinar


    A new generation of jewellery and gemstone professionals, more diverse geographically and culturally from the generations that preceded it, is poised to transform the trade. This is in no small part because the composition of its members more precisely mirrors the consumers who both buy and aspire to buy fine jewellery products.

    What characterizes many in this peer group is that they are first generation jewellers, who chose to join the industry not through family legacy, but primarily because of a fascination with the jewellery product and the creative processes by which it is designed, manufactured and marketed. The journeys that they took are often markedly different to those of their compatriots whose forebears were already well established in the business.

    These new generation jewellers are less likely to be restrained by tradition or convention, injecting into the industry new ways of thinking — not only from a design perspective, but also from the viewpoint of how the trade interacts with its target audiences and addresses their needs and desires. Their understanding of the end-customer is intuitive, because most are individuals who only recently made the transition from consumer to industry professional.

    The next Jewellery Industry Voices webinar will introduce the public to five members of this new group, allowing them to tell their stories and shed light on ways in which they and their peers are changing the industry and the products that it produces. Entitled “JEWELLERY'S NEXT GENERATION: More Diverse, Independent & Out of the Box,” it will take place on Thursday, April 8, 2021.

    Panellists include Jo Mathole and Khomotso Ramodipa, two sisters who came of age in newly democratic South Africa, founding the cutting and polishing company Kwame Diamonds; Elodie Daguzan, Executive Director of the World Diamond Council, who began her career in France's high-end diamond and jewellery sector; Shehana Kimiangatau, who journeyed from Fiji to Auckland, New Zealand, where she now owns and operates Shahana Jewels, an online pearl jewellery brand; and Justin K. Prim, an American gem cutter, author and historian living in Bangkok, Thailand, who is also a lapidary instructor at the Institute of Gem Trading.

    The seminar will be co-moderated by Edward Johnson and Steven Benson, and CIBJO President Gaetano Cavalieri will welcome participants.

    The webinar is sponsored by UNI Diamonds, which is also the Virtual Retail Platform Sponsor of Jewellery Industry Voices Season 2.

      The arrival of the Iberian Conquerors

      The Native Nations had no real interest in establishing a commercial venture in pearl fishing and we understand little to nothing of the way they fished for pearls, since most of the information was either lost or destroyed during the conquest of Mexico. The rich plunder of the Conquistadores was sent to Spain and later dispersed all over Europe. The most significant information we have on the subject comes from the period of colonization of northwestern...

    • New Bi-Monthly Column: The Sustainability Corner
      by CortezPearls
      Hello dear Pearl-Guide.com Forum Members: With spring comes renewed energies and pulses, the recent system upgrade also allows me to start adding up content that we believe is necessary to keep the forum growing and renewed, making it the #1 Source for Pearl information on the World-Wide-Web for years to come. I had this idea of a column years ago, when I still published "The Sea of Cortez Peal Blog", which went "black" after a massive Russian hacker attack (the importance of updating your system...

      A review: The History of Pearls in the Gulf of California, Mexico
      By Douglas McLaurin-Moreno


      Since unrecorded time, man has obtained many bounties from the world’s oceans: food, shells, corals, sponges, seaweeds, and the most desirable of all of these were the beautiful mother-pf-pearl shells and their valuable treasure, Pearls.

      Mexico has four species of pearl oysters inhabiting its coasts, two -the larger sized- on the Pacific side: the Panamic Black Lip...
