Zootility Introduces Vaccinated Tags – Simplifying Compliance with New CDC Guidelines

PORTLAND, Maine -- Zootility, a design-driven US manufacturing company, announced the launch of wearable Vaccinated Tags, in response to the U.S. officials easing face mask guidance for COVID-19 vaccinated people.

The bar shaped pendants have a bold, easily readable "Vaccinated" message that allows others to be aware of the individual's vaccination status. The subtle size and minimalist style make it versatile and easy to wear, yet instantly recognizable. The pendants are made from 3mm sheets of stainless steel or solid brass, materials that are easy to care for and are durable.

This distinctive jewelry is laser cut in small batches and demonstrates the attention to detail and uniqueness of the product. Being a made-in-USA product, it supports jobs locally, assures quality, and ensures confidence in timely fulfillment.

"The most recent CDC guidelines lifted the outdoor mask-wearing mandate, both in recognition of the lower risk and to provide an incentive to get shots. With vaccinated people not needing to wear masks outdoors when knowing the vaccination status of others, social interactions in public or with friends, neighbors, coworkers, or classmates may create a lot of questions regarding vaccination status. With global vaccination efforts continuing to be strong, but with many still hesitant, we thought this jewelry would help start, or even avoid, potentially awkward conversations," says Nate Barr, Founder of Zootility.

Visit Zootility's website at to order a vaccinated tag or pendant for yourself or gift it to a loved one.

Zootility designs, launches, and manufactures exciting functional everyday products that solve interesting problems, using clever solutions, quality materials, and futuristic technology. For more information on Zootility, please visit

Business, Free News Articles Continues to Make the Mark on Excellent, Decade-long Wholesale Jewelry Service to Fashion and Jewelry Boutique Owners Worldwide

EMERYVILLE, Calif. -- After more than ten years of success, JewelryBund Inc. continues to become one of the biggest professional fashion and jewelry manufacturing and wholesaling business. In its service to the wholesale jewelry industry, the company shows distinct leadership to the brand with JewelryBund's customer-oriented mindset that gained the trust of over 600,000 customers across 200 countries.

Founded in 2008, JewelryBund Inc. revolutionized the business of providing top-quality jewelry and accessories for the sole purpose of reselling. Starting a jewelry business has its challenges, especially when it comes to securing the products. The traditional approach to negotiating with manufacturers is to physically shop for the items. Retailers and business owners never had the luxury to solely buy their stocks online due to the fear of having an inventory that wasn't evaluated properly.

Bigger online platforms like Etsy and Faire have been bridging the gap between manufacturers and resellers. Their online marketplaces revolve around the business strategy that lets individual sellers post their own listings for their clients to see. Both of these platforms, like other online marketplaces, thrive on having as many sellers post as many products as possible. This strategy allows the platforms to have a wide range of items in their catalogs.

However, buying on these platforms means dealing with thousands of different sellers who are also communicating with their own manufacturers just to fulfill the order. The look behind the scenes will tell you that in most cases, these indirect purchases lead to a higher procurement cost with a time-consuming and inconsistent service level experience.

That is where JewelryBund effectively changes the scene of manufacturing and wholesaling. Through JewelryBund, their customers were able to browse, order, and receive items in bulk from direct factory sources without the need to travel back and forth for negotiations with resellers. All items that are sold on the company's website are owned and produced by JewelryBund which made quality-control more efficient and effective. Jewelry resellers can buy all demanded jewelry items at one-stop without worrying about the potential troublesome multi-rounds negotiations with many sellers.

By having self-owned products, JewelryBund takes full guarantee in providing fashion and jewelry items of high-quality catered for reselling. Consistency is highly regarded in the products which makes it suitable for rebranding and reselling. Even without physical evaluation of clients, the quality stays the same.

Over the past ten years, JewelryBund operates three jewelry and accessories factories in China, making the company well-equipped for handling large-scale orders at the lowest costs possible. With such a customer-oriented goal, JewelryBund became one of the leading one-stop sources for all kinds of jewelry products.

In an incredibly competitive market, JewelryBund understands the importance of being first in the fashion trends so their clients can also be the leading jewelry shops and boutiques. Every piece curated under JewelryBund is backed by careful market and customer research to pinpoint all the fashion needs and wants when it comes to Western and Eastern jewelry trends.

The product catalogs under JewelryBund refresh daily to stay true to that goal. Designs are constantly added to capture the newest trends of the market while the old ones are phased out to make sure that every piece of an item bought by the clients is market-competitive and worthy of selling.

Aside from having the best products at the market with the best prices possible, JewelryBund is also highly coveted due to the company's track record of holding steady relationships with the clients. JewelryBund helps its clients embrace the success of jewelry reselling by having professional clients' service support available at all times through their live chat, email, and official community pages.

In addition to that, the company goes beyond the basic means of customer support. JewelryBund also offers business supporting services for would-be entrepreneurs planning to start their own online jewelry business on eBay and Amazon. Despite being a large company, JewelryBund places high importance on every start-up business of every size and provides every support manageable in order to secure their client's success.

As stated by JewelryBund vice president - Cynthia Wong, "We take customers' satisfaction as the first priority because we consider our clients as our business partners who will grow up with us for doing jewelry sales business. We win trusts and maintain long-term business relationship for a bilateral success."

All the heartfelt efforts of JewelryBund certainly paid their due. The company, along with its clientele, continues to grow after such a strong decade. With their belief in "One World, One Jewelry Wholesale Price", JewelryBund continues to push the boundaries to be the leading manufacturer and wholesaler of refined, quality products.

The company's senior business development manager, William Lee added, "Our world-class customer service will guide start-up jewelry businesses all the way to become profitable with rapid business expansions and developments and offer valuable resales experience."

Get in touch with to experience firsthand the company's world-class service and become one of their 600,000 empowered and successful business owners.

Finesse Gods Clothing Company: New Streetwear Brand Launches Black Friday

DETROIT, Mich. -- The entrepreneurs behind a new clothing company wanted to go big at the end of a landmark year by launching their new streetwear brand on one of the world's biggest shopping days. Finesse Gods Clothing Company will introduce their new line of Finesse Empowerment Collection edgy and bundled winter gear designs on Black Friday, which falls on Friday, November 27 this year.

With their 2020 Black Friday launch, Finesse Gods will run giveaways throughout the day for subscribers and customers as a way to show appreciation for their support.

The Michigan-based clothing company's introductory collection is "Finesse On Ice." The line features a variety of jackets and hats for men and boys.

Finesse Gods Clothing Company's founders Serae Combs and Eugene Reid wanted to create a new streetwear brand drawing inspiration from the 2020 uprising against systemic oppression and inequality experienced by communities across America.

"Exploring your highest nature and owning what you find, paves your path to being the greatest version of yourself," Combs said. "To finesse in this world is a craft to align the elements around you to give yourself the life you deserve. To see yourself in the light of a God or Goddess, you are claiming your stance in the universe.

"To be a 'Finesse God,' you apply a limitless effort to mold the opportunities around you to conquer your dreams. As fashion is an instant language, your style is an amour to survive everyday reality."

Combs added, "WE ARE Finesse Gods. Our rich brand of men's and boys' fashion won't go unnoticed."

Fall Trends to Transition into Winter

LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- Jewelry lovers, the American Gem Society has a message for you: this is your season. This fall, some of the most stand-out fine jewelry you will see comes from members of the American Gem Society, a community of jewelry professionals dedicated to protecting the jewelry-buying public through a high standard of ethics and ongoing education.

According to Katherine Bodoh, CEO of the American Gem Society and AGS Laboratories, these five fine jewelry trends will provide the added detail you need this season to complete your ensemble. These pieces are also instant classics that can easily transition to winter, spring, and beyond. Be Zoom ready with any of these trends.

Medallions: this summer favorite is not slowing down. You can wear medallions alone or layer them or go bold and dazzle with medallion earrings and bracelets. Medallions stun in gold, but silver tones also make an unforgettable impression.

Restored Jewelry: do you need a jewelry makeover? Your local American Gem Society jeweler can work wonders on heirloom jewelry. Diamonds and gemstones can be removed from a ring or any piece of outdated or worn/well-loved jewelry and transferred to a modern piece of wearable art for your ears, neck, wrist, or fingers. If you can think it, they can most likely create it. A number of AGS designers also update older pieces by using recycled diamonds, other precious gemstones, charms, and much more to create contemporary designs.

Big Links, Long Chains: an extra-long chain is sophisticated and helps complete a look, especially one with higher necklines. Plus, let's face it: it also means no fiddling with a finicky clasp. This fall's styles feature big links for a bold statement, an homage to eighties jewelry. Slip it over your head, wear some diamond stud earrings, add a classic watch, and you are good to go. Or go short: choker-style chain necklaces in a high-polished metal provides an edgy yet glamorous look.

Pearls: the popularity of this organic gem endures. Staying with the big links trend, pair a chunky link with a drop pearl and you have a showstopper. Or, layer long strands of pearls with a couple of silver or gold link necklaces for a style that says there is nothing wrong with a wrist party!

Bright Colors. If you are a fan of seventies jewelry, the jewelry gods have smiled upon you. This season, think jewelry painted in enamel or treated in bright hues of red, blue, green, and yellow. Brighten up a dark outfit or enliven your mood on a rainy autumn day. If you plan to invest in one accessory this year...this is it!

KINONA launches Queen of the Green, a unique VIP Program designed to inspire and uplift

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Queen of the Green, a VIP program developed by women's golf fashion brand KINONA, aims to reward loyal customers while giving back to women-led causes.

Women's fashion trailblazer KINONA started from humble beginnings. Dianne Celuch and Tami Fujii were used to being the only women golfers at corporate events. But they didn't want to dress like the men they saw on the green, and together dreamed up a women's golf fashion brand that featured chic patterns, sustainable materials, and comfortable fits.

Developing their VIP program, Queen of the Green, was a lifelong dream for the brand. It intersected with their passion for supporting causes that uplift and inspire women in their communities and around the world. And as the women's golf community has supported them, Fujii and Celuch are ready to start supporting their community.

"We don't just want to give customers points," said Fujii. "We want to wow them. We want to honor them. We want them to feel like the Queens they are."

The program features a points system where customers earn 1 point for every $1 they spend during the calendar year. Shoppers qualify after reaching 800 points, and rewards include exclusive events, early access to new releases, and the opportunity to direct a $100 donation to a non-profit organization that helps women achieve more in sports and in life.

"We're proud to bring women together and do something great for the community at the same time," explained Celuch.

For more information on KINONA and their Queen of the Green program, visit our website or contact us at


Founded in 2017, KINONA brings a modern style, flattering styles and comfort to the game of golf. We're a team of women working to re-define the paradigm of "appropriate golf attire," reinvent the purchasing process, and look good both on and off the green.
