“To infinity and beyond!” The famous catchphrase of Buzz Lightyear in the Toy Story films comes to mind when thinking of the endless possibilities that Gem Star’s latest STAR INFINITY custom wedding band program brings to independent and small chain jewelers.
This leading, Dallas-based diamond jewelry producer – known for its diverse, design-focused, in stock and ready-to-ship diamond jewelry collections – heralds in the New Year with its latest innovation, STAR INFINITY.
This engaging program allows customers to build diamond eternity-style bands with a user-friendly online ring configurator that provides immediate pricing, with jeweler-preferred markup.
Among the diamond choices are calibrated round brilliant and fancy-cut diamonds, natural or lab-grown, VS to SI clarity, GH color, in sizes from 0.10 to 0.75 carats. There are five types of anniversary bands to choose from: full eternity, half and three-quarter way, five-stone, and east-west orientation for fancy shapes including emerald, oval, pear, and marquise.
Bands are available in 14K and 18K gold (yellow, white and rose) and platinum. Ring sizes range from 4.5 to 10, and can be customized to quarter ring sizes. Gem Star also offers custom models to fill special orders beyond the scope of its ready models.
Attention to Detail
“Diamond bands are popular, but for many they can be bulky, wide and uncomfortable to wear every day. This is a problem when using the standard casting available in the market,” explains Gem Star CEO Amit Patel.
But STAR INFINITY resolves this issue, recognizing that every diamond is unique and should have its own seat custom fit to perfection. Diamonds in the STAR INFINITY band are set in either soft claw prong or bezel, with or without gallery, and at minimal height, with negligible gap between stones. It is this quality of craftsmanship that produces a ring that is not only stunning in its sparkle, but also incredibly comfortable to wear.
Confident that jewelers who try its STAR INFINITY wedding band program will close more sales, Gem Star is offering a six-month free trial, providing jewelers with a showcase display unit with up to 12 SKUs in silver and CZ, i-frame for web configurator, digital banners and social media, and retail catalogs for natural and lab-grown diamonds.
