Diamonds International Revolutionizes The Customer Experience With New RFID Technology

New technology consoles will provide an interactive brand experience

New York, NY /PRNewswire/ - Diamonds International announced today the introduction of RFID technology in their Bay Street Bahamas store. The RFID technology, incorporated into a standalone console, enhances a customer's the buying experience of the Safi Kilima Tanzanite collection. This use of RFID technology is the first of many technological advances the brand will introduce in their 125 plus stores.

"Diamonds International strives to be at the forefront of our industry. It's important for us to be thought provokers when it comes to our in-store experience," said President & CEO Morris Gad.

The console educates in-store consumers about Safi Kilima Tanzanite. Through RFID technology, Diamonds International aims to create a higher level of interest and understanding of the exceptional story of tanzanite.

"Those who know tanzanite understand its rarity and profound beauty. It's considered a geological phenomenon, as it is mined in one location in the world: Tanzania, Africa, making tanzanite 1,000 times rarer than a diamond" continued Gad. "Safi Kilima Tanzanite is and will continue to be the number one tanzanite brand in the world."

Gad founded Diamonds International in 1988. While Safi Kilima Tanzanite is the newest proprietary collection in the portfolio (founded in 2010), tanzanite itself celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2018.

RFID technology allows the customer to interact with the unit and learn more about Safi Kilima Tanzanite. Customers lift a 3D model of Mount Kilimanjaro and are able to learn the story of Tanzania and the translation of Safi Kilima Tanzanite's brand name in Swahili which means "Pure Mountain." Other features include video imagery of seasonal product collections, loose stones, annual advertising campaigns, and more! The ability to update the console with new information, facts, and imagery is what will keep this fixture exciting.

As RFID technology continues to evolve the retail experience, Safi Kilima Tanzanite and Diamonds International take it to the next level by offering education that creates a deeper brand connection and overall brand experience.
