First I would like to introduce myself, my name is Stephane Boghossian.
I am currently a student at IFA Paris [Institute of Fashion Academy] following the MBA in Luxury Brand Management. Before being in Paris, I was studying in GIA Carlsbad and HRD Antwerp gemstones, pearl and diamond grading followed by Product Design and Jewelry CAD design. I worked at Samra Jewelry in Dubai, UAE designing private pieces for Samra Jewelry & their co-branding Versace Fine Jewelry Collection.
I am currently working in my MBA program and my thesis is coming soon. The subject I have chosen is:
The Afterlife of Branded Fine Jewelry: Assessing C2B2C Options (Sell As-is, Refurbish then Sell, or Divest Fine Metals and Stones) to Optimize Value of Vintage Inventory
This blog is only to support my research and follow my process along the way.
Anyone is liberal to suggest research topics, suggestions, book references, etc… that would help me complete this capstone successfully.
