It’s The Zing Report’s birthday. We’re officially one year old!

 

Looking back at our first year, we’re delighted that the initial idea for TZR as a smart and  lively editorial site for jewelry and gem industry professionals—with a mandate to spotlight the industry’s feel-good stories—still holds. Our day-one tagline, “Celebrating Our Industry,” is still our North Star.

 

At the same time, we’re still in our infancy. We’re still learning how we fit into the industry (and your busy lives as retailers, manufacturers, designers, jewelry lovers), what types of stories you connect to most, and what you’d like to see more of in the future. Which brings us to this: We’d love to hear from you. Is there an industry issue keeping you up at night? Let us know at [email protected] We’re here to inform (and hopefully also entertain) you.

 

In the spirit of fostering fruitful two-way dialogues, we’re celebrating our first year by looking back on the articles our readers connected with the most. Here are the five most-read articles from The Zing Report’s first year, counting down to number one!
