“Why Diamond J Consulting? When my husband and I needed to start a company as we were both working as consultants, coming up with a name was a challenge. He is Darcy I am Jeannette and both of our middle names start with C. So, it started out as DJC. At the time, I was doing some research on blue diamonds. I have always been attracted to Cobalt Blue. Over 70% of my wardrobe consists of the colour, my purse, my wallet, my coat and even my truck is cobalt blue. When I was a Sales Manager with Black’s Cameras I was told that Red was a power colour for women. I greatly dislike red so wearing it made me fell awful. But blue is like an energy source for me. Through my research, I learned that blue diamonds are extremely rare and are even known to conduct electricity. What began as a combination of initials turned into Diamond J Consulting so I could highlight my favourite colour and new found information about blue diamonds, after all I have been told I am high energy – conduct electricity!”
