Coming very, very soon to this space... a new feature called "Chatting With The Paragons Of The Industry."
When speaking of diamonds, a paragon is a diamond that weighs a hundred carats or more. It's a big, significant, weighty sucker and we all ought to sit up and take notice. My desire is to seek out and talk to the human paragons of the jewelry industry. The designers, the artists, the teachers, the stonecutters, the good retailers, the collectors, the industry innovators. The people with the right stuff.
I have had the most excellent good fortune to become acquainted with the wonderful and brilliant Etienne Perret, who has graciously agreed to be interviewed for the Bling Blog.
I hope you are as excited as I am about this feature. I could not have asked for a better debut jeweler/designer to interview. He is spectacularly talented, terribly thoughtful and bright, gloriously irreverent, and you're going to love him.
Watch this space...
