Let them in on a diamond’s 3 billion year formation and all that it had to go through to reach the retailer. That’s one sure fire way to bring a diamond to life. One can also go into details about how diamonds easily become part of someone’s heritage as they can travel down a family tree for generations to come.
- Be Unique – Too many retailers are supplying their products and trying to stand out. A good retailer needs to be unique and that can be done by being in sync with the society around them. This means adding something extra to your diamonds. Something that people won’t find at the hundreds of other jewelers in their area.
