The precious metals, diamond and jewelry industry is truly unique. Precious metal valuation can change drastically overnight. Tightly controlled supply and customer demand can alter diamond costs on a daily basis. Add in consignments, memo sales, trunk shows, a dash of recession, and lagging retail sales, and the jewelry industry may be one of the most difficult to navigate during these trying times.
