Jewelers Mutual said it will continue to expand the platform’s tools and capabilities, including soon-to-come jewelry market price indices and an industry news section.

To develop the platform, usability experts and developers worked directly with jewelers to learn more about their needs.

Jewelers Mutual also collaborated with industry leaders like IDEX and Gemworld, and opened a Dallas technology hub.
