Corporate Ads: The BRGO brand has been known worldwide in the field of fine jewelry since 1995 and has gained high recognition for its unique, handcrafted styles. What sets BRGO apart from other jewelry lines and keeps your sales growing?

They continuously push the boundaries of traditional jewelry design and incorporate unique concepts and ideas into their pieces. This not only keeps their sales growing but also appeals to customers who are looking for something truly special and one-of-a-kind. Overall, the BRGO combination of strong branding, unique designs, and commitment to quality is what sets them apart from other jewelry lines and has helped them to achieve ongoing success.

  1. Handcrafted designs: BRGO is known for its unique and handcrafted jewelry styles, which sets it apart from mass-produced and cookie-cutter jewelry lines.
  2. Fine jewelry reputation: The BRGO brand has been established as a fine jewelry line since 1995 and has maintained its reputation for high-quality pieces.

Corporate Ads:  BRGO offers fine jewelry in price ranges from as low as $50 to as high as $250,000 so there are many options for every level of consumer.  At that price, levels do BRGO book the most sales?  And do you see any changing trend developing, higher or lower?  

Berge Abajian:  BRGO Jewelry is one of the most well-known names in jewelry today. BRGO creates timeless pieces of fine jewelry, designed with chic elegance and quality in mind. BRGO prides itself on its ability to create a luxe product that can be worn by anyone, regardless of income or status.

Yes, we do see the most sales at the high end. We have customers who buy $50,000 rings and even $250,000 rings on a regular basis. But we also have customers who just want to spoil themselves to an $800 pair of earrings as a special treat. Our customers are all over the place, but for every price point, we offer something that’s affordable and beautiful.

The BRGO second most popular price range is between $50 and $100, with a median price of $70. We see this as a sign of our success in bringing fine jewelry to a broader consumer base, and we’re really excited about how many people have been able to experience BRGO high-quality products at more affordable prices.

Corporate Ads:  Aphrodite’s is the BRGO direct-to-consumer marketing company that grossed over $30 million in sales in 3.5 years with $10 million of this generated during the 2020 pandemic year. With the pandemic receding, do you see Aphrodite’s sales growing higher or faster?  

 Berge Abajian: The potential for higher sales growth for Aphrodite as the pandemic recedes is certainly very high, especially if BRGO is able to capitalize on the increased demand for jewelry and consumer goods from people going out and traveling. Additionally, the company’s ability to pivot with market changes, leverage new market opportunities, rapidly release innovative product lines, and implement out-of-the-box marketing methods to boost sales means that we can capitalize on any market conditions. could also positively impact sales growth. There are also jewelry companies that are still impacted by the supply chain issues carried over from the pandemic but BRGO put in the infrastructure to control our entire chain from top to bottom which gives us a competitive advantage. 

However, it’s important to note that other factors such as changes in consumer behavior,, and competition can impact future sales growth. However, we do anticipate that Aphrodite’s sales will grow higher.

Finally, Aphrodite has always focused on creating products with high-quality materials and workmanship—something our customers appreciate very much. I think this emphasis on quality will continue to be an important part of our brand identity in the future as well which will result in higher sales!
