Even in a Pandemic, Fine Jewelry Is Selling

CORONA DEL MAR, CALIF. — Conventional wisdom suggests that a pandemic would not bode well for jewelry sales. But for Mark Patterson, a fine jewelry designer with a retail store in this coastal Southern California enclave, 2020 has defied expectations at every turn. (And he’s not alone.)

“Wholesale is down — we haven’t done any trunk shows — but our retail store has doubled sales from last year,” Mr. Patterson said in late October. “It’s crazy. We don’t know how to explain it.”

Actually, he did. “Big diamonds,” he said.

Mr. Patterson described a recent sale to a local couple: “They had plans to travel for their 20th anniversary — Europe or maybe Australia — and their trip was canceled due to Covid, so they decided to upgrade her diamond engagement ring from one carat to four carats,” Mr. Patterson said. “They spent close to $55,000.”

“People are realizing, ‘Wow, life is short, why don’t we get married?’” said Edahn Golan, a diamond and jewelry industry analyst based in Israel. “It’s all about love, emotions, the fragility of life.”

Mr. Golan said that, in the United States, retail jewelry sales in March and April fell by $3.8 billion compared with the same period in 2019 — retail stores there were closed in these early days of the pandemic.

Once lockdowns eased in June, July and August, however, sales for that period grew by $1 billion year over year. Engagement ring sales led the charge, he said.

Couples who tied the knot this year cut down on “guests, food, flowers, party favors,” Mr. Golan said. “The one area where there’s the least tendency to compromise is on the bride’s jewelry because it’s long-lasting, and ‘I gave up on everything else, why should I give up on this?’”

If the crisis has spurred people with means to buy jewelry as an expression of love, it’s inspired those with even greater means to look at it through an age-old lens: as a tangible form of wealth.

Gary Schuler, worldwide chairman of Sotheby’s jewelry department, saw that at the house’s Magnificent Jewels sale in Geneva last month, where the 14.83-carat Spirit of the Rose, a fancy vivid purple-pink diamond, sold for $26.6 million, making it the most valuable jewel auctioned in 2020.

“People are looking for hard assets,” Mr. Schuler said. “We’re seeing it in these and other categories we sell at Sotheby’s: contemporary art, old master paintings.”

All of these factors help explain why sales of fine jewelry, pieces priced at less than $50,000, have performed better than most luxury categories, said Luca Solca, senior research analyst for global luxury goods at Bernstein.

“The only caveat is high jewelry, which has suffered from the lack of opportunities to present products to potential customers (normally,

Fine for not wearing masks, promote online shopping: SOPs for markets

Imposing fines for not wearing masks or not following physical distancing, opening markets on alternate days and closing them if large number of coronavirus cases are reported, are among the measures recommended by the Centre to ensure compliance to COVID-19-appropriate behaviour in markets.

The standard operating procedures for markets issued by the Union Health Ministry on Monday to contain spread of coronavirus infection, stated that online booking of groceries and doorstep delivery of those must be encouraged while incentives or discounts for those who shop during non-peak hours may be considered.

The SOPs outlined that market places in containment zones shall remain closed. Shop owners and employees living in containment zones shall not be allowed entry into marketplaces, it stated.

According to the SOPs, COVID-19-appropriate behaviour in marketplaces may be regulated by market associations through a number of measures, including creation of a sub-committee for each market to facilitate and monitor implementation of such behaviour in marketplaces.

It also suggested setting up mask dispensing kiosks at government-approved rates at entry points of markets and parking lots, establishing hand washing stations in public utility areas while recommending use of foot operated taps and contactless soap dispensers.

It also sought for providing mass thermal screening provisions at the entry and access points to the market, procuring thermal guns, sanitizers, disinfectants for sanitization of public utility areas and placement of IEC materials and signages regarding Covid appropriate behaviour in prominent locations. 

“Where self-regulatory approach fails or lacks impact, the planning shall also entail taking enforcement actions, wherever warranted. This may include levying of fines/penalties on defaulters for not wearing mask/face cover, or for not following physical distancing norms.

“Exploring the option of allowing markets/shops to open on alternate days and closure of markets in case larger number of cases are getting reported which are found to be having epidemiological links with the market by the administration,” the SOPs stated.

The ministry said market places are visited by a large number of people. With gradual opening of economic activities, markets are witnessing high footfalls, it said.

“Such large gatherings, without observance of COVID-19 appropriate behaviour have the potential to spread coronavirus infection,” the SOP document stated.

It also suggested strategies that can be worked out by the law enforcing agencies in collaboration with market associations to manage crowd such as engaging civil defence volunteers, home guards and volunteers to regulate crowd, accessing control at parking lots for limiting vehicle entry and exploring staggered time of shops and utilities, thereby allowing them to remain open for a longer duration.

“Crowd density does not remain the same throughout. It usually peaks during evening hours on weekdays. On weekends and holidays, marketplaces are crowded for most of the day till late in the evening. Planning should specifically factor-in requirement for these peak days/hours,” the document noted.

According to the guidelines, at the entry point of shops, all employees and visitors should undergo mandatory hand hygiene and thermal

London-Based Nadine Aysoy Creates Fine Jewelry Collections For All Women And Every Occasion

While London-based jewelry designer Nadine Aysoy has been enlivening her luxurious and classic collections with diamonds and other precious gemstones since 2017, she’s also on a parallel mission to create “demi-fine” jewels. As Aysoy asserts, “Of course women need fine jewelry in their collections, but they also need well-made, great-looking and affordable everyday pieces that complement their style while bringing joy to their lives.”  With her fine jewelry and demi-fine approach, Aysoy manifests an open-minded; pragmatic vision reminiscent of 20th century designer Coco Chanel’s tendency to mix ultra-fine jewels with costume pieces. In our COVID-impacted era, however, Aysoy’s diverse collections prove how a jewelry designer can remain both creatively relevant, and successful, in a highly volatile economic climate.

Aysoy’s fine jewelry ranges are available online from such eminent e-tailers as Matches Fashion, a platform featuring her “Catena” collection of 18-karat gold, diamond and colored gemstone jewels. As the designer explains, “Catena is Italian for ‘chain’ and designs in this collection embody my interpretation of chain links.” As it happens, Aysoy’s Catena designs are sensuously rounded, fresh classics. From the gold and diamond ear cuff to the emerald ring to the kinetic gold and diamond triple-link Catena earrings, these chic pieces will stand the test of time.

Another online purveyor carrying Aysoy is Curated Crowd www.curated-crowd.com This fashion and jewelry platform connects independent designers producing limited editions with conscious consumers. Standouts here include the “Celeste” collection, which gleams with pieces made of white jade and tsavorite garnets, white jade and rubies, as well as white jade and diamonds, to dramatically original effects. The white jade which Aysoy uses is high quality material that’s suffused with gray-green undertones. Thus the stone embodies a celestial glow, like clouds at sunrise or sunset. “I like combining white jade with diamonds and colored stones, the designer muses, “because it has a mysterious, cool kind of beauty that’s unlike any other jewelry material.” Noting that, “While diamonds are the hardest natural substance known to science,” Aysoy explains that jade is classified as “tougher” than diamonds. “A diamond can easily fracture if it is cut on the wrong angle or if it falls on the ground a certain way,” she notes. “Jade is tougher in that it withstands most accidental knocking or dropping.”

While La Maison Couture www.lamaisoncouture.com , a contemporary fine jewelry boutique, features a selection of “Celeste” “Tsarina” and “Catena” pieces, Aysoy’s gold-plated and skillfully enameled sterling collection, which glitters with lab-grown emeralds and rubies, is exclusively available online at SWITCH www.joinswitch.com Made of

$15K fine for NYC synagogue with 7,000 person capacity after massive secret wedding

A Brooklyn synagogue was fined $15,000 for violating coronavirus restrictions after a video surfaced showing people standing shoulder-to-shoulder and apparently without masks at a massive, secret Hasidic wedding.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the fine at a news conference on Tuesday and condemned the large event as “unacceptable.”

The wedding was held on Nov. 8 at Yetev Lev D’Satmar synagogue in the Williamsburg neighborhood, according to the New York Post, which published a video that showed the crowd jumping, dancing and singing during the event. The video does not show people wearing masks.

Calls to the synagogue on Wednesday were not immediately returned.

The synagogue holds up a maximum capacity of 7,000 people, although it’s unclear exactly how many were at the wedding.

The mayor said Tuesday that they are still trying to determine the final number of attendees.

“What we do know is unquestionably it was too many people,” he said. “Whatever that number — whether it was hundreds, thousands — it was too many people. And it appears that there was a very conscious effort to conceal what was going on. And that’s what makes it even more unacceptable.”

Organizers kept details of the wedding planning a secret as to not draw attention, according to The New York Times, citing the weekly Yiddish newspaper Der Blatt. Guests were told about the upcoming nuptials through word of mouth and no posters or notices about the wedding were left on the synagogue walls, the Times reported.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Sunday that a wedding was stopped at the synagogue before and if they kept this one a secret to avoid that happening again “that would be really shocking.”

“It’s illegal. It was also disrespectful to the people of New York,” Cuomo said.

De Blasio said that in addition to the fine a cease and desist letter was placed on the building, and if they are found to be in violation of restrictions again, the synagogue would be shut down permanently.

“We don’t want to see that happen to anyone, but we need to be very, very clear that if folks are doing something dangerous we can’t allow it to happen,” the mayor said.

The wedding was held as New York, and every other state across the country, grapples with a rise Covid-19 cases. In an update Cuomo posted on Wednesday, New York reported 6,265 positive cases and 41 deaths.

New York authorities issue $15,000 fine over secret ultra-Orthodox Jewish wedding

New York City officials on Monday announced that they would fine the organizers of a Hasidic Jewish wedding that was attended by thousands of people earlier this month, calling it reckless and accusing organizers of concealing it from authorities.

New York authorities issue $15,000 fine over secret ultra-Orthodox Jewish wedding

The New York Times reported that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) said that those who planned the wedding took active steps to ensure that the thousands of participants would not reveal news of the wedding to city authorities.

“We know there was a wedding,” the mayor said on local news station NY1, according to the newspaper “We know it was too big. I don’t have an exact figure, but whatever it was, it was too big. There appeared to be a real effort to conceal it. Which is absolutely unacceptable.”

Video of the wedding that first appeared online and was obtained by the Times shows thousands of men packed closely together in a hall for the wedding, and a report of the cover-up efforts reportedly appeared in a local Hasidic newspaper.

“We’ve been through so much,” de Blasio continued during the NY1 interview, according to the Times. “And in fact, the Williamsburg community in recent weeks responded very positively, did a lot more testing and was being very responsible. This was amazingly irresponsible, just unacceptable. So there’s going to be consequences right away for the people who let that happen.”

City officials have battled with members of the Hasidic ultra-Orthodox Jewish community in parts of New York for months over COVID-19 restrictions, which have banned the large public gatherings that often take place in closely-knit majority-Hasidic neighborhoods.

In October, the NYPD arrested organizers of a Hasidic Jewish protest against the city’s COVID-19 restrictions after fires were set and a journalist was brutally assaulted on the street.

Kiryas Joel Hasidic Wedding Probed by New York State After Superspreader Fine

The New York State Department of Health says it is investigating a Hasidic wedding that was scheduled in upstate New York Monday evening at a synagogue where throngs of people were seen gathering without masks and not practicing social distancing.

Officials were so concerned about the event, originally set to take place at the Congregation Yetev Lev synagogue in Kiyras Joel, that they issued a cease and desist order to leaders of the Satmar sect just hours before it was due to get underway. Still, a steady stream of bearded, black-hatted men were seen gathering at the massive synagogue around the event’s originally-scheduled time.

“The order we issued on Monday morning was clear: social gatherings must follow strict protocols regarding capacity limits, mask wearing, and social distancing in order to help stop the spread of COVID-19,” a spokesperson for the New York State Department of Health told The Daily Beast in a statement. “We are aware of reports that a gathering was held and are investigating whether there was adherence to the guidelines laid out in the order. If not, we will pursue all appropriate legal remedies.”

Word of the probe came a day after Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a paltry $15,000 fine over another potential superspreader wedding also organized by the Satmar Hasidic community that took place in Brooklyn and drew thousands of people earlier this month.

Video from that wedding, held in Williamsburg, saw people dancing and singing with hardly a mask in sight in clear violation of COVID-19 public health restrictions.

“We know there was a wedding,” the mayor told Inside City Hall on NY1 Monday night. “We know it was too big. I don’t have an exact figure, but whatever it was, it was too big. There appeared to be a real effort to conceal it. Which is absolutely unacceptable.”

“There’s going to be a summons for $15,000 immediately for that site, and there could be additional consequences as well,” de Blasio added.

The potential deterrent effect of such a modest fine for a gathering that was reportedly thousands-strong—in the face of a so-called Third Wave of the coronavirus pandemic nationwide—remained to be seen.

The order for Monday’s scheduled wedding between two members of prominent ultra-Orthodox families called for the congregation “to cancel the wedding ceremonies unless they can be held in strict adherence with safe social distancing protocols.”

It also sought to prevent groups from larger than 50 people of gathering at one time. But large crowds, collectively amounting to well in excess of that number, appeared at the synagogue originally slated to host the wedding. Rumors that the wedding events were ultimately held off-site complicated the picture, but at least some apparent attendees posting on social media suggested it had taken place.

The synagogue, a spokesperson for Governor Cuomo, and the State Police did not respond to a request for comment, and state agencies spent much of Monday passing the buck between one another over who was responsible for enforcing the cease and

$15,000 Fine After Secret Hasidic Wedding Draws Thousands of Guests

Thousands of ultra-Orthodox Jews gathered to celebrate a wedding inside a cavernous hall in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood earlier this month, dancing and singing with hardly a mask in sight. The wedding was meticulously planned, and so were efforts to conceal it from the authorities, who said that the organizers would be fined $15,000 for violating public health restrictions.

The wedding, organized on Nov. 8 by the leaders of the Satmar sect of Hasidic Judaism, is the latest incident in a long battle between city and state officials and members of the ultra-Orthodox community, who prize autonomy, chafe at government restrictions and have frequently flouted guidelines like mask-wearing and social distancing.

In October, state officials announced a series of restrictions in several neighborhoods in Brooklyn and Queens with large Orthodox Jewish populations after the positive test rate in those areas rose above 4 percent. Many residents protested the restrictions, which included the closing of nonessential businesses and limiting capacity at houses of worship.

While the rates in several of these areas have decreased since the implementation of the restrictions, tensions between city officials and area leaders have continued.

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the fine on Monday night after video of the wedding — and a florid account of the event and the extensive efforts to conceal it appeared in a Hasidic newspaper — drew backlash online. He said additional penalties could be imposed on the organizers.

“We know there was a wedding,” the mayor told the local news network NY1. “We know it was too big. I don’t have an exact figure, but whatever it was, it was too big. There appeared to be a real effort to conceal it. Which is absolutely unacceptable.”

Representatives for the Satmar community did not respond to a request for comment on Tuesday.

“We’ve been through so much,” the mayor added. “And in fact, the Williamsburg community in recent weeks responded very positively, did a lot more testing and was being very responsible. This was amazingly irresponsible, just unacceptable. So there’s going to be consequences right away for the people who let that happen.”

On Sunday, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo called the event “a blatant disregard of the law” and “disrespectful to the people of New York.”

State officials ordered the Satmar community in Orange County to cancel a series of weddings planned for Monday night, but it was unclear if the group complied with that order.

The wedding in Brooklyn, which lasted for more than four hours, was held at the Yetev Lev D’Satmar synagogue in Williamsburg and celebrated the marriage of Rabbi Joel Teitelbaum, the grandson of Satmar Grand Rabbi Aaron Teitelbaum.

Last month, Satmar leaders canceled another wedding in Williamsburg, which they said expected 10,000 guests, that was to be held for the grandson of Rabbi Teitelbaum’s brother and longtime rival, Grand Rabbi Zalman Teitelbaum.

An account of the wedding was published on Nov. 11 by Der Blatt, a Yiddish-language newspaper closely aligned with the Satmar leadership in Williamsburg.
