The Do-Gooder Hotel Jewelry Shop
We have a sneaking feeling that more and more hotels will start to do away with their simple sundries-only gift shops and start making space for specialized gift shops.
Take for instance the jewelry store at the Loews Santa Monica which is called 1700 Ocean. The Jewelry Weblog went inside the shop and found not even this to be a regular old jewelry store, as evidence by the mission statement.
It is 1700 Ocean's, Debra Savage, Earl Allen and all employees' mission to provide every customer either in our store or on our website with absolute best quality jewelry and gemstones available on the market.
The products designed by us or artists we choose to represent will be brought to you via a visible supply chain. In other words we will not, or can not support anyone or company who takes advantage ecologically, economically or inhumanely to bring their products to market.
Perhaps there is an opportunity for this store within the new "1" Hotels?
