JH plans to stay focused on the jewelry and jewelry stories that remind us why our industry is so meaningful. Our content isn’t reliant on trade fairs or public venues, so expect us to continue to reach readers via digital delivery and snail mail (for TJB, our trade content partner). In fact, now may be an even more important time to dive into new collections and the tales behind them in order to maintain a sense of normalcy with a side of glittering escape.
Christmas will still come; jewelry will always be relevant for its beauty, messaging, meaning, economic impact the world over, and ability to connect people—even when social distancing is in effect. Milestones like weddings, promotions, graduations, anniversaries, and more will still happen, and people will continue to look to retailers and designers to provide them with the joy-inducing wearable treasures they love. Jewelry will always play a role in our relationships and lives because it is a special staple to many.
