Retailers: We want you to star in our new IGTV series, “Sparkle Sessions!”
“Sparkle Sessions” helps consumers meet the jewelers behind the counter. They learn about the benefits of shopping with our knowledgeable and expert members. They also discover what makes AGS jewelers so special: their passion and love for jewelry!
These short videos help consumers connect with you, get to know you better, and learn a thing or two about jewelry and gemstones!
Vendors: Ask your retail partners to feature your jewelry in a “Sparkle Session!” Doing a trunk show or event? Film one together!
This is your opportunity to show off your expertise on the amazing gemstones you work with every day!
“All About Birthstones” features the special birthstone(s) representing each month. Tell us about the history, origins, and characteristics of each gem, as well as share jewelry trends and designs that incorporate these fascinating gems.
These videos help other members connect with you, get to know you better, and they can use the videos to help train their staff.
They also help consumers learn more about their birth month’s special gem.
