Podcast Episode: Michelle Graff

Paul and Michelle begin by discussing lab-created diamonds and how the product will ultimately be seen by consumers: as fashion or fine jewelry? The two then talk about how lab-created fits into independent jewelers’ merchandizing strategies, what the net reduction of jewelers in American means for the industry and how the growth of independent jewelry designers is a trend to watch. Paul then asks Michelle her reaction to the latest large diamond that was auctioned by Sotheby’s Hong Kong for $16 million in October. The conversation wraps up with Michelle offering her longer-term views of the jewelry industry acknowledging the clouded visibility due to the pandemic.”
