Knoxville, Tenn. (PRWEB) February 20, 2012
Jewelry Television® (JTV), the world’s largest retailer of fine jewelry and gemstones is celebrating Mardi Gras style with an all-day celebration of savings. In recognition of the rich traditions of New Orleans, JTV is rolling out its own parade called “Carnival of Carats” on Tuesday, Feb. 21. Fat Tuesday shoppers can save big on jewelry collections featuring colored gemstones.
“Since JTV is the largest retailer of loose gemstones in the world we are able to offer unique colored stones that are difficult to find in traditional retail stores,” said Bill Kouns, chief merchant for JTV. “Exotic colored stones like kunzite, spessertite, Chalama black opal, and Mahaleo ruby are standards for JTV.”
JTV’s globetrotting buyers travel the world in search of rare, exotic gemstone finds to bring
home to jewelry and gemstone enthusiasts.
“At any given moment a team of JTV buyers could be in a remote corner of the world climbing into a gemstone mine or trekking to a small village where we’ve heard there is possible new material,” said Kouns. “Our vast network of international industry contacts often gives us first dibs because they know how large and discriminating our audience is.”
In addition to “Carnival of Carats,” jewelry-making hobbyists will enjoy a special edition of Jewel School from 10 a.m. until noon EST. Jewel School, JTV’s proprietary program designed to teach jewelry makers of all skill levels how to create beautiful works of art, will feature a colorful parade bead set for sale and offer up to 50 percent off select beads.
