How to Choose the Right Earrings for Children

The first time they get their ears pierced is a special milestone for kids.

Being a jeweler means being part of and guiding people during milestones in their lives. Aside from helping their clients pick out engagement and wedding rings, jewelers are also part of one of the most memorable life stages for little girls.

The very first ear piercing is a cherished childhood tradition that many kids and their parents look forward to. Choosing the right piercer is important, but choosing the right jewelry for this occasion is crucial too.

Make that experience a safe and happy experience for the parents and the child by learning how to choose the right earrings for young, first-time wearers.



Go for hypoallergenic options.

For the delicate skin of babies and children, it’s best to err on the side of caution. Avoid possible allergic reactions by choosing hypoallergenic options particularly those that don’t contain nickel which may cause irritation. Sterling silver, 14K or 18 K yellow gold, and white gold are skin-safe choices for children or first-time wearers of any age for that matter. Earrings with medical-grade titanium and plastic are great too – the latter is especially a preferred option for babies as they are gentle and won’t dig into their skin even while sleeping.

Make sure to have these options in your earring display cases to give your customers a wide range of choices.

Say “no” to dangling and hoop earrings for now.

To avoid the possibility of getting their ears hooked during playtime or even at rest, it’s best to steer clear of dangling or hoop earrings for now. Post or stud earrings are the safest bets for babies and children until they are old enough to be mindful of their movements and surroundings. Make sure also that the earrings’ posts are much shorter than those made for adult earrings to avoid the possibility of their earrings puncturing or rubbing against their skin.
Additionally, simple non-flashy designs are good bets to avoid unwanted attention.



Look for secure and skin-safe earring backs.

Even if they go behind the ears, choosing the right earring backs is just as important when buying a pair of earrings for children. Again, make sure the material doesn’t contain nickel to avoid possible allergic reactions. You also have to make sure the earring backs are sturdy and can properly secure the jewelry to the child’s ears.

The best options are the specially designed screw-type earring backs that are embedded in high-grade silicone. Screw-type earring backs are much more secure than push backs, while the silicone material ensures the child’s skin is kept healthy and allergy-free. Plus, they are also lightweight and comfortable, which makes it the perfect choice even for babies.

Other earring back options like the french wire and lever back are best suited for older kids and teens.



Feel free to experiment with colors and designs.

While some parents may prefer simple designs, others leave the design choice to their children and we all know children love colorful and bright things. Some hypoallergenic earring options come in pretty and dainty designs such as flowers and hearts. They can also be adorned by Swarovski crystals that come in different colors. You can be sure that your customers would appreciate you having these diverse design options in your earring display cases and showcases.

Helpful Tips and Techniques to Selling Engagement Rings

Engagement ring shopping can be a stressful affair, but it doesn’t have to be that way.

An Engagement Ring On The Table


Jewelers are every future grooms’ (or in some cases, brides’) best friend. Known for their expertise on jewelry, they must know everything there is to know about helping their customers make the perfect choice for such a momentous occasion.

If you’re new to the business and would like to learn the tricks of the trade, read on to learn more.

Remember to make your jewelry display look as enticing as possible to make a sale, so make sure you present them in the best way possible. Keep things elegant, neat, and well-maintained. Avoid clutter as much as possible. Make sure your merchandise is kept tidy by steam cleaning.

Lend a helping hand to the customer.


Engagements are joyous occasions, but the steps leading up to it can be pretty stressful. Particularly for the nervous, first-time future groom (or bride), the experience can be overwhelming. Be there to give gentle support during this milestone. Ask about their preferences and do your best to fulfill their wishes.

Be prepared to deal with different customers.


Some customers may already have a design in mind, while others may have zero expectations or preferences when they come into your store. In such situations, it’s important to be flexible and open to these two different types of customers. Always be ready to come up with suggestions when asked for your opinion about the 4Cs: Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat Weight. Ask questions if needed.

Thread the money talk carefully.


It’s better to ask about a price range instead of an exact amount to give yourself a bit of flexibility when the time comes for you to make your recommendations. However, avoid asking the buyer if he/she is on a budget.

Go the extra mile.


Giving top-notch customer service should be your goal each time, but giving extra perks like offering to clean the jewelry they’re wearing or refreshments wouldn’t hurt. It shows you value their time and effort for visiting your store.

Holiday Jewelry Store Display Ideas

Check out these few easy tips on how to prepare your jewelry shop for the coming Christmas season.

The shopping madness doesn't stop after Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Black Friday as we still have Christmas to prepare for, the last one of the year. As with the previous holidays, Christmas is also a busy time for jewelry shops. And one way to make sure that you have a steady flow of customers coming to your shop is to make it festive, warm, and welcoming.

If you've used up all your creativity these past holidays and all you can think of is put up generic Christmas decors, don't you worry. Today, we are sharing a few easy tips on how to prepare your jewelry shop for the coming holiday to help boost your sales.

Use jewelry displays in festive colors.

Get rid of those dark-colored displays you used in the previous holidays and replace them with ones in Christmas colors -- red, green, gold, and white. A red jewelry display surely catches anyone's eye and matches most Christmas decors as well. If you want to go minimalist without losing that festive vibe, you can go with an all-white display. Finish off with simple glittery decorations like lit-up snowballs and fairy lights.

Showcase Christmas-inspired jewelry.

It's time to take out your seasonal pieces! Showcase them with your festive jewelry displays, and it's also best that you place them by the window. Seasonal pieces can be tough to sell, especially once Christmas is over, so promote them as much as you can. One example is creating Christmas bundles to further pique the customers' interest.

Make your shop smell like Christmas.

Fill in your customers' senses with all the Christmas sensations. A surefire way to do this is to make your shop smell like Christmas. Get an essential oil diffuser and choose scents that remind you of the season. Go for peppermint, roast chestnuts, fresh pine, cinnamon, or chocolate. Tickling your customers' senses will definitely make them stay longer. Be careful not to overdo it, though, as a strong scent can give people headaches.

Tone down lighting.

Lighting is a crucial aspect of any jewelry display. However, having such a bright interior can do more harm than good. To achieve a festive feel, tone down the general lighting in your shop. Choose warmer colors, rather than the uber bright ones. As for your spotlights, they need to stay as bright. Otherwise, they won't be able to showcase your jewelry items effectively.

Play traditional Christmas music.

Last but not least, play Christmas music that can make your customers feel all warm and fuzzy. Go with the traditional ones, as these songs can immediately make happy childhood memories come back and provoke warm emotions. Make sure not to turn the music up too high, though, as it can be pretty annoying or distracting for your customers.


Benefits of Using Mannequin Jewelry Displays

Do not be turned off by their traditional vibe. Learn why these displays are worth showcasing your jewelry.

One of the best types of the necklace display is the mannequin. Mannequin busts help customers visualize how a piece of certain jewelry would look on them or on an actual person. And that is why many local jewelry shops still use them. However, some may consider them as traditional and are worried that they won't match their modern shop displays. We beg to differ. These jewelry displays actually come in different designs, colors, materials, and styles. Give them a chance; here are the benefits of mannequin jewelry displays for your shop.


No clutter

The main benefit of mannequin necklace busts is that they prevent clutter in your shop, especially in your window display. You can showcase necklaces separately without having to worry about tangled ornaments. Some styles come with hooks, and these allow you to separate pieces without them getting all messed-up.


Gives life to the piece

As mentioned earlier, mannequin jewelry displays help people visualize how a jewelry piece looks like on an actual person. They bring the illusion of life, provoking something in them -- the desire to touch and wear the jewelry. Somehow, mannequin displays allow people to connect with the item they are checking out. These displays help customers understand what piece would look good on them or not, therefore influencing their purchase behavior and buying decision.


Sets shop's atmosphere and tone

Mannequin jewelry holders can set the tone of your entire shop. Unlike jewelry items displayed in boxes or trays, pieces showcased in mannequin busts seem more approachable and friendly. This gives an intriguing vibe, encouraging passers-by to check out your store. So the more unique the design of the mannequin, the more it will catch the customer's interest. These displays also help boost sales because of their strong, imposing appeal, as well as providing customers a better all-around shopping experience.


Ease of getting and returning the piece

Those with multiple hooks allow you and your customers the ease of getting a particular item from the display, as well as the ease of returning it. With necklaces in a box or tray, you'd still have the trouble of removing clips that secure them in it. Mannequin necklace displays, on the other hand, do not need these clips, making it more convenient for customers to try on the necklace they want.


Affordability

Mannequin necklace displays are actually quite affordable. Some can even hold multiple pieces at once, so there is no need to shell out cash for a lot of jewelry displays. They also save space, are practical, come in many designs, and can match any type of necklace or bracelet for smaller ones, for that matter.


Jewelry Display No-Nos

Here are things to avoid in your jewelry shop display.

Jewelry displays are the first thing your customers see when they pass by your store or once they enter your establishment. That is why you should make sure that they look as presentable as possible. However, some jewelry shop owners still make mistakes and are actually not aware of them. Don't be one of them, here's a list of some of the jewelry display no-nos to avoid.

1. Making the window display look cluttered


No one wants an eyesore of a window display! Not only is it painful to look at, but customers will also lose interest in checking your items out further. By cluttered, we mean displaying too many pieces in one jewelry holder. For example, if you want to showcase a new necklace design, place it solo in one necklace display. You can add one or two more of a different color but never put more than three. Remember that you want to make passers-by curious enough to make them go inside your shop. So limit the pieces that you display by the window.


2. Not enough space


Space is definitely a significant factor in displays. Even out the items evenly; otherwise, customers will have a tough time checking out each piece. This would be quite inconvenient for customers, especially if there are other people interested in the same item. Some solutions for this is to use rotating displays or place the display table in the middle area, not against a wall.


3. Using too many colors


Your displays should look consistent; if you are opting for a minimalist style, go for monochrome displays. On the other hand, if you want a colorful display, pick a particular palette with just two to three colors to avoid going overboard. You should avoid the clash of colors because your display can become an eyesore. The same goes for the jewelry items you are planning to showcase. If a particular piece has multiple colors, it's best to use a jewelry stand with just one color.


4. Insufficient lighting


Light is one of the most important factors in displays. Without proper lighting, potential customers won't be able to see all the details of the jewelry pieces. That said, you would need enough spotlights to light up your items for sale. Make sure that it is also installed in a way in which it does not cast any shadows.


5. Excessive lighting


If some displays have insufficient lighting, some can go quite overboard. Too much light can also ruin a beautiful display. Your goal is to perfectly showcase your jewelry and impress customers, not give them a headache with really bright lights. Some people cannot stand such lighting, specifically those with eye problems or migraines. One solution for this is to use different temperature ranges or colors of light bulbs instead of just bulbs from one bright temperature range.

And because show booths are not that spacious, you can largely benefit from the space-saving quality of this display.

5. Use it to display other accessories.

1. Showcase your items in new jewelry displays.


Go for brightly colored ones to achieve a festive feel. You can highlight a new necklace with a white necklace display or an acrylic ring holder for your rings. It would be a bit too early for Christmas accents, so go for the generic festive ones like golden and silver bows, drapery, or tablecloths. Having this uplifting and welcoming festive theme in your shop will definitely arouse the interest of your passers-by!


2. Build anticipation with in-store promos.


Get a spike in sales by urgency and scarcity. How? All you have to do is create in-store exclusive flash sales. Offer a limited number of jewelry pieces at low prices for a limited time only. Make sure to put up posters of these promotions on your window display weeks before, as well as announce them in all your social media accounts.


3. Offer Black Friday jewelry bundles.


You can encourage people to buy more jewelry by offering a bundle of pieces. You can even include a slow-moving item in the set to make sure they finally get sold. Don't forget to put a tag of how much they are going to save if they purchase the bundle, versus how much they'll spend if they are to buy the pieces individually.


4. Give exclusive rewards to loyal customers.


If you are giving out a point rewards card, you can give double points to purchases done on Black Friday. For example, if a customer gets one point for every 10 dollars spent, they will get two points for every 10 dollars on Black Friday purchases. Another option is to give exclusive freebies to loyal customers when they spend a particular amount.


5. Send out an email campaign.


Email marketing is an effective strategy to promote your products. In fact, according to DMA Insights, 99% of consumers check their email every day. So take advantage of this, and inform your customers of your Black Friday specials by sending them informative emails. You can also promote your deals and discounts via emails too. So don't forget to add a call-to-action to make sure they check out your website and physical store.

Exterior of jewelry shops

Local SEO or local search engine optimization is an effective way to market your local jewelry business online. It focuses on emphasizing the optimization efforts of physical stores or brick and mortar shops.

Since we are talking about brick and mortar jewelry shops, local search includes terms like:
  • jewelry shops near me
  • Jewelry shops in Los Angeles
  • jewelry display store near me
  • jewelry display store in Los Angeles

Local SEO is important for physical stores because according to Google, 50% of users who did a local search on their phones went to the physical shop within a day. Also, 60% of American adults conduct searches for local product and service information on their mobile devices.

So how do you do local SEO for your jewelry shop? Here's a guide that can help you:


Optimize your Google My Business Listing


GMB is essential for local SEO. Create a listing and enter your exact business name. Here's what you should do to optimize your listings.
  • If your jewelry shop has multiple locations, make sure that they each have their own listings.
  • Enter your complete physical address.
  • Enter your local phone number.
  • Enter your website's URL. For multiple locations, link each of the GMB pages to the location's page.
  • Don't hold back on adding photos, as users would be looking for real and unique ones. Take images of both the interior and exterior of your shop.
  • Enter other additional information like your shop's business hours.


Embed Google Maps


To make it easier for target customers to find you, embed your shop's Google Map on your website, specifically on the Contact page. In the case of multiple locations, embed a Google map of each location on the right proper landing page.


Make sure that your website is mobile-friendly.



Since Google prioritizes mobile-friendly websites, make sure that your jewelry site is mobile-friendly. You can check Google's mobile-friendly test to verify this. You can also update your site with a mobile--responsive theme.


Optimize your content for local SEO.


Make sure that the content of each page is unique, informative, and readable. All topics should be related to jewelry and fashion. Do include related keywords whenever possible, but don't overdo it. Lastly, you can add local customer reviews as well.

Manage your reviews.


Many studies have found that a lot of consumers read local reviews and trust them as much as they trust recommendations from family friends. With that said, you should make sure that your business is listed on major review sites like Google My Business, Yelp, and even on Facebook. And as mentioned earlier, you can put these reviews on your website to further raise the interest of people.

Do not forget to respond to all reviews. Thank those who gave positive ones, and apologize to those with negative reviews. You can also make it up to them by trying to resolve the issue.


How to Display Jewelry on Halloween

Here are a few display tricks to spook up your jewelry shop this Halloween.

It's finally October! And in just a few weeks, store displays will be filled with spooky decorations like skulls, cobwebs, and brooms. This is pretty easy to do with a clothing shop or a bookstore, but how about a jewelry shop?

Today, we will be sharing some tips on how you can spook up your jewelry store display this Halloween season, aside from the usual spooky decorations.


Silver pentagram pendant


Use only black jewelry displays.


Go dark as much as possible! Remove your pink or floral displays for the meantime, and replace them with purely black ones. A black velvet jewelry display is one good example, as well as a leatherette-covered one. Black metal jewelry holders are great choices too.


Showcase Halloween-inspired items.


Dedicate your window display only for jewelry pieces that have Halloween-inspired designs. Showcase skull rings, bat pendant necklaces, spiky leather cuffs, and other jewelry perfect for accessorizing costumes. Doing so will arouse the interests of passers-by, increasing the chances of them dropping by your shop.


Turn down your lighting.


Jewelry shops naturally have bright lighting to showcase the beauty of the items for sale. However, in the spirit of Hallow's Eve, try turning down your lights to give your shop a spooky feel. Do note though that spotlights are exempted from this because jewelry on display needs to be lit up.


Play some spooky music.


Up your Halloween spirit by playing spooky music! You can find playlists of scary background music on Spotify or on YouTube. Playing the original soundtracks of horror movies or series is another option. Just don't keep it too loud because you might scare potential customers away!


Get a smoke machine.


And to top off your shop's overall Halloween feel, turn on a smoke machine. You can either rent one or buy one, depending on how you want to invest in your Halloween decorations. And if you're the only store in the area with this special effect, you will definitely be giving customers a very memorable store experience.

As an added tip, you can take photos of your Halloween-ready jewelry shop and upload them on your social media accounts. Create a unique hashtag for your posts as well. Then, invite people to come over to take photos and encourage them to use the hashtag.


How Content Marketing Benefits Jewelry Businesses

Learn how great content can boost your jewelry business.

Content Marketing

Content marketing involves the creation of content on your e-commerce site or blog site with the primary goal of attracting customers. And we are not just talking about articles or blog posts; content marketing includes visual content like infographics and videos.

This marketing strategy is one of the most effective for businesses, as there is no need to invest much. Also, it allows your jewelry brand to connect with your customers on a more personal level. Still skeptical? Here are ways how content marketing helps boosts sales:

1. High-quality content with the right keywords has a ranking advantage.


Incorporating useful keywords in your article or video title gives you stronger visibility in searches. That said if you write substantial, informative, and in-depth content, the chances of you showing up on the first page of Google or Bing search results increase.

So how can you write informative content? Think about what the usual questions your target customers may ask. For example, they could be asking what the best necklace display is for statement necklaces or how to clean a velvet jewelry display.


2. Great, high-quality content establishes you as an authority in the industry.


You can position yourself as an authority in the jewelry industry by sharing helpful articles, infographics, and videos. Why? Consumers are sick of hard-selling content, and they are most likely thankful for substantial, informative ones. That said, their appreciation for your content can ultimately lead to sales.

Being an authority in the industry also can drive more people to your e-commerce site or your physical store. This is because they find you trustworthy, compared to other jewelry businesses who do not give them the same informative content.


3. Good content can give you more exposure.


If you regularly share high-quality content on your e-commerce website or blog site, your visitors will most likely be happy ones. This is because they were not being sold to. Instead, they learned something new or have become inspired to do something. This then increases the chances of them sharing your content on their social media accounts.

Providing your website visitors a positive experience will undoubtedly give a positive outcome. So make sure to keep your content as good as possible, and share as many jewelry tips and tutorials as you can.
