Just after a successful trip to Ft. Lauderdale for the JIS October show, Isabel Cajulis, JCK Retailer Account Manager, touched down in Atlanta, GA for a look into their local jewelry market. Much like her previous retail trips, she tried to cover all of the bases – visiting several parts including Vinings, Buckhead, Decatur and more! Unfortunately, with a packed schedule there wasn’t a ton of extra time to tour as much as her visit to San Francisco, but she did say she felt immersed in the culture. It’s no surprise to us that she ate a lot of BBQ and fully experienced some real southern hospitality!

The Results Are In
I hope you were able to check out my findings by viewing the JCK Events Instagram story series Retailer Road Trip! My favorite upload was the poll posted at Tassels Jewelry because I honestly could not decide myself which set of earrings I loved more. Now I can finally reveal to you what our viewers had to say! Do you agree?
I am so grateful for the hospitality all of the retail locations demonstrated and I can’t thank them enough for letting me play dress up with all of the absolutely gorgeous pieces that I found. I’m always fascinated by the way each store represents the brands and designers they carry with a unique flair and inspired displays. Below you can see some of the stores I had the pleasure of visiting during my stay in Georgia!
