December 2016 Newsletter

JIS is proud to present the December edition of Catching Up With JIS. This community newsletter is dedicated to providing you with industry news, trends, and updates on all things JIS. Don’t miss out on your chance to Catch Up!


In this edition of THE SCOOP, JIS sits down with Elisa Grego, writer for Vitrinne Magazine, one of the most popular jewelry trade publications in Brazil. In this edition of THE SCOOP, Elisa shares her journey into the jewelry world.

Give us a little background on Vitrinne Magazine as a publication in Brazil?

The ScoopVitrinne Magazine is a top jewelry trade magazine in Brazil. We circulate 5,000 printed copies per month to key decision makers throughout Brazil, as well as sending out our weekly e-newsletter to 35,000 subscribers. We publish 3 printed issues a year that are distributed at important Brazilian jewelry trade events (Francal, Ajorsul, Aljoias and FA São Paulo), at high-end jewelry retail stores, hotels, restaurants, and wholesale malls throughout all of Brazil. We also continue to grow our digital presence in Brazil’s jewelry market throughout the year.

How did you get involved in writing editorially for the jewelry industry and specifically Vitrinne?

My native city in Brazil, Limeira, is the Brazilian fashion jewelry capital with more than 400 jewelry factories. So as soon as I graduated from college, I attended a Social Media program in Michigan for 6 months and started a fashion blog, where I wrote about fashion trends, focusing on fashion jewelry. When I returned to Brazil, Vitrinne gave me the chance to be a part of the wonderful publication, and I’ve been here since.

What is the first word that comes to mind when you hear Jewelers International Showcase?

Glamorous. I love seeing all of the new trends, styles and jewelry designs at each show I attend.

What is your favorite book to read and why?

Girl Boss, from Sophia Amoruso, because she reinvented the way that the fashion industry works and made the most of it. She is the ultimate “girl power” representative for all entrepreneurial women around the world, including Brazil.

What is one food you could eat every day for the rest of your life and why?

Definitely cheese. Here in Brazil we have a kind of cheese called "queijo coalho" that we eat at barbecues and also at the beach. It is a Brazilian delicacy that everybody must try when they visit our country.

What are you looking forward to the most at the 2017 JIS Shows?

I'm looking forward to finding new trends and to get to know more about the kind of jewelry (materials and design) that brands are investing in now.
