When it comes to jewelry, the big names like Tiffany & Co., Gucci and Michael Kors are still leading the pack, but what about smaller companies like DDD, which is a company that started out selling custom jewelry to customers in the US?
We’re talking about a jewelry store in Houston, Texas that’s now making the rounds on Twitter.
DDD started as an idea to build a place to sell custom jewelry, but it was actually a jewelry boutique with a goal to provide a full range of products for customers.
As it was growing, it saw an opportunity to expand and add new retail locations and more retail space.
“It was an opportunity that we really couldnt pass up, we didnt want to go back to the status quo, we were just going to try and make a better store,” DDD founder and CEO Michael R. J. Dickey said in a recent interview with The Verge.
Determined to create a more stylish experience for their customers, DDD decided to add the option to make jewelry at home.
“Weve got a lot of experience with making custom jewelry and the people that were working there at the time, theyre just as passionate about the product as we are,” Dickey explained.
“They were passionate about it.
It’s a really hard thing to find.”
The DDD store has now become one of the most visited online retailers in the country, and its been growing at a rapid rate.
According to Dickey, the store has been getting requests from people from around the world for custom jewelry.
“Every single day we get a new person asking if they can make their own necklace or ring,” he said.
“And it’s so gratifying to see that people come in from all over the world and say they wanna make their jewelry, too.”
The brand now offers custom-made jewelry for every price range, from $300 to $2,500.
But its not all about jewelry.
D.J.D. has partnered with a lot different brands for its products, including Michael K. and L’Oreal, and has even partnered with fashion companies like Chanel, Dolce &.; Gabbana, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein.
“Its a lot like fashion.
Weve seen the value in what we do, the creative side of it, and what we can bring to the table,” J.J., who is also the co-founder and CEO of DDD’s wholesale jewelry business, said.
Its easy to see why.
Ddd specializes in the customization of custom pieces.
They have a great selection of accessories like necklaces, earrings and jewelry, as well as full-fledged custom jewelry for people like celebrities and celebrities’ friends.
“Our customers really appreciate that, the idea of being able to customize your own jewelry is a very attractive one,” J, who also runs his own jewelry company, said in an interview with WIRED.
DJD’s mission statement is simple.
“When it comes down to it, the more unique you make your piece, the better it is for you and your customers,” D. J., said.
That’s why D. D., is always trying to get the customer in the right mindset.
“Customers are the lifeblood of a business.
They buy all the things you do and want,” D, said, “and if you can give them the best experience possible, then youre on the right track.”
For DDD customers, the brand is focused on the design aspect of the business.
“Youve gotta have the right tools to create the perfect jewelry,” D said.
The brand has partnered up with some of the best designers in the world, including the likes of Daniel Dano, who is the creator of the BAPE sneaker.
“I love being a designer, and Ive always been able to work with designers from around it,” Dano told The Verge in an email.
“There are a few that really work with my style and I love that.”
D.D., which is based in Houston and has about 200 employees, is one of many Houston-based companies looking to expand into the retail space, like D.E.D.’s and the D.C. office of D.H.P.C., the nation’s largest independent jewelry store chain.
The company is also looking to increase its presence in other parts of the country with a larger network in New York City, Atlanta and Dallas.
DMD says its been able the way it has because it is constantly looking to improve.
“The biggest part of being successful is being able the right people to help you,” J said.
While D.M.E., which D.T. has purchased, has been able with its business plan, J said it is still in its infancy.
“A lot of our business model is really driven by our customer service,” J told WIRED in
