Of course you are right. But the decentralization/fragmentation of the
jewelry industry that leads it to speak in small voices of ones and twos is
also the reason it is such a lucrative, untapped, and underserved industry.

Fewer larger voices equals fewer sales. Smaller more numerous voices equals
more sales. This is especially true as RP technology breaks below $50,000
where most small jewelry retailers selling $500K per year can afford. What I
am suggesting is RP manufacturers think outside the box.
