Hello from KIM’S GOLD DUST
|Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth at Corvettes at Carlisle. We enjoyed catching up with old customers/friends and making acquaintances with new ones. There seem to be many young people getting into the Corvette hobby and that is so good for the hobby! Also, thanks to those folks giving us new jewelry ideas. Those suggestions are always appreciated!
KIM’S GOLD DUST debuted five latest pieces at this show. We offered a new C7 ZR1 pendant, a C7 emblem dog tag, a C7 man’s signet ring and a C7 Grand Sport money clip. Finally, we showed a new C8 pendant with a tire-tread border that was a real hit! All these items will be shown soon under New Items. These pieces are at the photographer now.
If you were unable to attend this show, remember we are open 24/7 online. Although we mostly feature items for the newer generations, we do have several pieces available for all the Corvette generations.
Summer is coming to an end but Autumn is a fun time to explore the colors of fall. It’s one of my favorite times of the year. The mountains are magnificent when we are on our way to and from the Ocean City, MD show in October. This show is one of our favorite ones to attend. Sun, fun, beach, Corvettes and the mountain majesty…what could be better?

The C7 marks the first use of a “shape memory alloy wire” in a production vehicle.
To save weight (approximately 1.1 pounds) and reduce complexity, the C7 Corvette uses a smart material wire to operate a cabin vent in the cargo area that required a motorized actuator on previous models. Triggered by the opening of the hatch, heat generated by an electrical current similar to that of an interior courtesy lamp is used to contract a wire, thereby moving a lever that opens the vent, letting air escape to reduce cabin pressure and make shutting the lid easier. Once the hatch is closed, the current cuts off, the wire returns to its original shape, and a return spring closes the vent to maintain cabin temperature.
GM has earned 247 patents for smart materials such as this over five years of research and development, and it figures there are approximately 200 motorized systems in the typical vehicle that could be replaced with smart materials. Typically made of copper-aluminum-nickel or nickel-titanium, smart materials can change their shape, strength, and/or stiffness when acted upon by heat, stress, a magnetic field, or voltage, and return to their original shape when the trigger is deactivated.
A company’s trustworthiness is a fundamental key to its success, but in the jewelry business, it is part and parcel of its very identity. Of course, that trustworthiness is the product of good customer relations and rapport, but when it comes to social proof for possible new customers – the next best thing to word of mouth are consumer reviews and testimonials. Thanks to all who have helped KIM’S GOLD DUST by providing their reviews and testimonials. May I please ask you for a favor to help possible new customers who are not familiar with KIM’S GOLD DUST? Would you be willing to write a review/testimonial for us? Boosting a reputation is worth its weight in gold! It can just be a sentence or even a statement; nothing elaborate or lengthy is required. Thanks in advance. It is greatly appreciated.
