We Will Get Through This
It’s a big black hole right now. There’s just so much uncertainty out there. There’s just no conversation that’s devoid of coronavirus. It’s tough to look ahead in all this negativity and lack of clarity, about what the future holds. But we have to.

Look at the what’s happening in China right now, the place where this dreaded virus first emerged. Store traffic in China is slowly starting to creep back up. If history has taught us anything, it’s the fact that people like to shop to make themselves feel better. Probably diamonds and jewellery are the last things on people’s minds right now, but when all this is behind us, people will find solace in the glimmer and sparkle of diamonds and then we shall make the most of it. Until then, stay safe and chin up.
