Watch: How the Colored Stone Market Is Faring in 2021

National Jeweler chats with three experts about the health of the sector, trends, and their outlooks for the rest of the year.

It’s been more than a year since the colored stone sector has been able to gather in any big way.

To gauge the health of the market, Senior Editor, Gemstones Brecken Branstrator invited three experts in the area to sit down with her and talk about how things are going.   

Kimberly Collins, Roland Schluessel, and Stuart Robertson discussed how buying activity has been (hint hint: fairly strong), the gemstones and colors that have been trending, how the pandemic has shifted the way the trade is buying color, supply and pricing, and how they feel about the rest of 2021.

Watch the full session above.

Join National Jeweler for another webinar next Tuesday, June 15, at 2:00 p.m. Eastern, when Senior Editor Ashley Davis will host the next session, featuring award-winning creative director Simon Mortimer in a masterclass on branding.
