BOSTON, April 1, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gemvara (www.gemvara.com), the leading provider of customizable fine jewelry, today unveiled Stone Reset by Gemvara (www.stonereset.com), a new service that will change the way consumers look at their jewelry. Through a simple online platform, customers can securely send in a gemstone or diamond to be reset into a new piece.Each reset piece is customer-styled and handcrafted by Gemvara's expert jewelers and stone-setters. Customers create new jewelry that retains the history of a special stone that is delivered at a fraction of the cost of a new piece.
Stone Reset brings Gemvara's one-of-a-kind design platform to customer's existing jewelry collections. "Research shows 49% of consumers have fine jewelry at home that they don't wear. Our new service provides these consumers with the opportunity to refresh their jewelry box, transforming valuable pieces currently collecting dust into stylish and meaningful pieces that they can wear again," said Gemvara CEO Matt Nichols. "We have also seen an increase in demand for resetting heirloom stones, particularly for engagement rings. Recent survey data shows that 30% of engaged or married couples used or considered using a family stone. Stone Reset is the first platform of its kind that preserves a gemstone's legacy using a system built for the modern shopper."
Millennial shoppers are the first generation with grandparents who were engaged in the post-1940s De Beers "Diamonds Are Forever" marketing campaign and demand for heirloom stone-set engagement rings is expected to rise. "Millennials often do not have the time, resources, or patience to take on the arduous task of creating a piece with a traditional local jeweler. Gemvara simplifies jewelry resetting by enabling a customer to do it from the comfort of their home," Nichols points out.
