Jewelers unBLOCKed's CEO Patricia K. Low is quoted in National Jeweler in an article about Sofia Coppola's new movie The Bling Ring - a film depicting the true-life crimes of a group of teenagers who stole from celebrities such as Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan.

“Quite often we see that high-profile individuals put systems in place to protect themselves, such as body guards, alarm systems, and security cameras. Unfortunately, what we’ve found is their management teams often neglect to insure their personal assets such as watches, jewelry, keepsakes, awards … The same is true for jewelers. We find they take many precautions in the store, and less in their personal lives,” said Patricia Low, president and CEO of Jewelers Unblocked.

JCK Las Vegas- Recap

LAS VEGAS- For one week each year jewelry retailers, manufacturers, designers, wholesalers, press and of course the LBG Team, call Sin City home!

"Jewelry Market Week" includes over four major trade shows: JCK, JCK LUXURY, LUXURY SWISS WATCH and COUTURE and boasts over 3,000 exhibitors and 30,000+ attendees from every corner of the world. Several of our clients exhibited, sponsored and attended the shows in late May to early June this year, and the LBG team was on-hand to help enhance their day-to-day experience. 

LBG was involved with pre-planning for the shows, facilitating setup and break-down, running high-tech rehearsals, executing run-of-show at several major events, managing audio visual elements for our clients, coordinating editorial meetings, scheduling press interviews, actively participating in social media (we won 3 Twitter competitions!), and making sure that each client had a successful and productive show. Luckily, we had the contagious energy of Las Vegas to keep us going!

There was quite a bit of action happening at the Coast Diamond booth during the LUXURY Show at Mandalay Bay Convention Center :
