That begins with your corporate logo.

Posted by Racheli Fuld on January 5, 2017

The diamond and gemstone industry is somewhat of an enigma. On one hand it is all about keeping up with the latest fashions and trends, yet on the other hand, its product is stones that have been on this planet since ancient times.
