I just read an article that confirms what I've been saying for months. It seems as though the high end jewelers (gold/precious stones) are doing well and seem unaffected by the economy! Seeing as the rich people that are able to buy from them are still rich. The article is in a magazine I receive, National Jeweler, and mentions a designer I've met several times and love Paula Crevoshay. Check out her website, she is such an inspiration.
One of my many goals is to primarily work in gold and learn how to set stones and add them to my jewelry creations. Now I just need to find a backer to support my buying gold to get things moving!
