Watch: 2 Editors on What They Saw at the Vegas Shows

Michelle Graff and Ashley Davis dish on traffic, trends, masks, and more in the latest episode of “My Next Question.”

The annual slate of jewelry trade shows held in Las Vegas wrapped up Monday and, all things considered, they went extremely well.

Traffic was strong, exhibitors were happy, masks were abundant, and people were happy to see each other again.  

This year, National Jeweler sent two writers, Editor-in-Chief Michelle Graff and Senior Editor, Fashion Ashley Davis, out west to cover the shows.

On Tuesday, they sat down to discuss what they saw and heard, including as it relates to jewelry trends, foot traffic, and buying. 

Watch the full conversation above.
