Of course, ranking very high on most women’s list is the gift of diamonds since, fortunately, you don’t have to be Natalie Portman or Sandra Bullock to have a special relationship with diamonds. In fact, the power of suggestion is sometimes all it takes.
Maddy Dykwald, author of the new book "Influence", believes that women’s soaring economic power is transforming the retail landscape, adding that, "Historically women have been the chief domestic purchasing agents for their family. What's new is that their influence is being felt outside the home. Purchases traditionally in men's domain--like cars--are now also influenced by women.”
