Diamond Selling Season Finds Me Too Busy To Blog?

So what happens when you are too busy to blog?
Well for one thing, I personally become frustrated.

I love blogging and enjoy researching the happenings and goings on in the diamond industry and community.

Unfortunately or fortunately (:-) :-) , we have been incredibly swamped these past few days with incoming Holiday orders for loose diamonds and engagement rings specifically.

I simply have not found enough time to blog as I should.

What should I tell you; people are finding love and are committing to a life together during this holiday season. THERE IS LOVE IN THE AIR and engagement rings are flying out the door!!!

YAY!

So in the meantime, here is an awesome read on the results and analysis for sales with respect to the diamond industry and jewelry websites, re: this past ‘Cyber Monday.

I promise to make a concerted effort to blog more during this season.
..no, this is not a new year’s resolution…just yet. ;-)

I will find time……
