“This article by analyst Paul Zimnisky notes that diamond shortages will likely materialize as a result of Group of Seven (G7) sanctions on Russian goods, but that close to 40% of the country’s production will not be subject to import bans. It contains a useful graph showing the estimated value of rough supply net of sanctions.”

Photos of Subway Ad Campaign Spark Negative Reaction: ‘This Entire Campaign Makes My Skin Crawl’ (The Cool Down)

“I once interviewed a jewelry consultant who emphasized how important it was to have a client advisory board to run ideas past. Just because you or your marketing team might find something funny doesn’t mean your clientele will. This is a prime example of that — a marketing campaign from James Allen on a New York City subway that went viral for all the wrong reasons: gender stereotyping, demeaning consumer messaging, and more. Is all publicity really good publicity? I’m not so sure.”

Bulgari ‘Aeterna’ High-Jewelry Watches 2024 Collection (WorldTempus)

“I am certainly not a watch person, but this colorful collection by Bulgari made me keep watching — pardon the pun. It was created together with Swiss watchmakers, and one line of the collection is called Fuochi D’Artificio, which means “fireworks” in Italian. You only have to glance at the pictures to understand the choice of name.”
