Rubin’s story describes a jeweler's fascinating business from a wholesaler’s point of view and the glamourous and exciting world of jewelry trade.
LOS ANGELES, CA, US, October 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — She Writes Press is pleased to announce its first-anniversary sale for acclaimed author, Adrienne Rubin's memoir, Diamonds and Scoundrels: My Life in the Jewelry Business, an informative and entertaining memoir about the secretive world of gold and diamonds. For one week only, you can purchase Rubin's memoir that follows her as she starts in the jewelry business for just 99 cents and read it directly on your mobile, tablet, or computer device.
Rubin entered the business world out of boredom as a young married woman when her children were still in school. Full of courage, naive, and seeking achievement in a man’s world, she believed that success would come to all who persevere. Adventurous and gutsy, she fought challenges at every turn and refused to quit. Her story adeptly interweaves the human side with the business side, with lessons on entrepreneurship, trust, and what can be done when faced with deceitful dealers and partners. It’s an adventure where crooks and thieves abound.
What is unusual about Rubin’s story is that she describes this fascinating business from a wholesaler’s point of view. The jewelry business today, along with many others, is difficult; however, engagement rings and diamonds are still in demand, and jewelers will always have customers. At Christmas or anniversary time, there is nothing more popular than a gift of diamond jewelry.
After 30 years in the business, Rubin made a decision to retire when her lease was up. The rent was about to double and had she stayed, the expenses would have left little or nothing to take home as a salary.
In her words, “Selling jewelry was a fun and exciting way to earn a living — procuring gifts to sell for happy occasions. Making people happy, participating in their celebrations, the beauty of 'fire and ice,' — I did have a lot of fun. The biggest challenge for me was after I became a partner with others. I got scammed and ended up in court in an attempt to get what I truly deserved. I stuck to my guns and kept on going."
Make sure to get your hands on this exclusive sale ending October 23 to find out the intriguing conclusion to this epic story.
Diamonds and Scoundrels: My Life in the Jewelry Business is on sale online for 99 cents this week only through October 23.
