Buying in Italy: Lisa’s Blog Part I

January 15, 2010
Lisa Bridge, Assistant Diamond Buyer, is traveling in Italy to find the best and most interesting new jewelry for the coming year. She will keep us updated as she scours the country for unique pieces that will be coming to a Ben Bridge store near you soon!
I just arrived in Vicenza with Peter and Jeanne Luplow (VP merchandising and appraisals) and Laura Barringer (color and gold buyer). We all traveled separately but made it safely and with all of our luggage. First success!
Peter drove the 40 minutes (well what should have been 40 minutes) to our hotel. We took the scenic route through the city around round about after round about to arrive at our little modern hotel.
In an effort to get on to the right time zone we decided to head in to the town of Vicenza to walk around and grab dinner.
Tomorrow we don’t have many appointments in order to have time to find new talent and designs. I can’t wait!

Ciao for now!


Lisa Bridge, G.G., Assistant Diamond Buyer
