Wedding rings on a book are ideal for a book-loving couple. And it's best to use old books that give vintage and homey vibes. There are different ways to showcase the rings as well; you can simply place them on top of a page with your favorite lines, or create a heart by creating two loops using two pages. Simply putting them on top of a closed book is good too.


Place them on a music sheet.

How to Handle Excess Inventory

Don’t just dispose of them; here are a few tips on what to do with excess jewelry pieces.

How to Handle Excess Inventory | NileCorp.com

It’s already spring, but you may have noticed that there is still a lot of Christmas-inspired jewelry in your inventory. This holiday just comes once a year, and if you can’t wait till the next Yuletide season, one option is to dispose of all these items. However, did you know that there are other ways to handle excess inventory?

Today, we are giving you a few tips and tricks on how to reduce your excess jewelry items.


Sell them to your customers.


This may seem a bit crazy, but yes, you can still sell outdated jewelry items to your customers. How you may ask? Well, you can sell them for a considerable discount. Many customers are willing to buy outdated designs for lower prices, so they can save a lot on holiday jewelry to either wear or give as presents. You can sell them at online retailers like eBay and Amazon for your products to get more exposure.


Offer them to other sellers.


Other sellers are willing to buy outdated designs. This is because they can resell them or create them into new pieces. These sellers scrap these items and use the raw materials to create new ones. For example, a pair of drop earrings with snowflake charms can be made into a simple pair of studs, minus the snowflake design. A charm bracelet with Christmas charms can be made into a minimalist piece.


Recreate them.


In line with the second tip, instead of selling them to sellers, you can scrap these jewelry pieces yourself and create them as new ones. You can even use these pieces in your workshop activities or jewelry-making classes if you regularly have them. Another option is to use the Christmas-inspired charms to design your holiday jewelry display. There are so much you can do with these jewelry scraps, all it takes is a dash of creativity!


Give them away as promotional items.


If you do not have the luxury of time to recreate your excess inventory, you can opt to give them away as promotional items. For example, if customers purchase three or more items, they can get a free Christmas-inspired piece. This would be a good idea to do in the third quarter when the Yuletide season is nearing. Keep them anticipated with the holidays!


Donate them.


The last option is to donate them. This is much better than just disposing of these items. You can give it to art workshops or organizations that have jewelry-making activities. They can scrap them and use the materials in teaching youngsters on how to make their own jewelry. Not only are you able to help, but you are also able to make these aspiring jewelry designers happy.

How to Clean Velvet Jewelry Displays

Keep your displays looking fresh and new with these cleaning tips and tricks.

How to Clean Velvet Jewelry Displays | NileCorp.com

Velvet is one of the favorite types of displays of sellers because of its sophistication, glamour, and its ability to make a necklace stand out. Sometimes, you cannot avoid your velvet-covered jewelry displays from getting dirty or stained. A necklace display with stains cannot accentuate the beauty of your pieces. So once you've noticed some dirt on your displays don't wait weeks or months before cleaning it.

That is why for today, we are sharing a few tips on how to clean your velvet jewelry displays.


Use sticky tape.


For minor dirt like dust and small particles, sticky tape is the cheapest way to go. You only have to cut about two inches of the tape and wrap it around a pencil or your finger with the sticky side out. Gently dab the tape unto the velvet surface. Replace with a new one as necessary.


Use a lint roller.


If it’s mostly fuzz and fur, a lint roller or a lint remover is the way to go. However, this is not too effective for dust, so you will still need sticky tape for it. Gently roll the lint roller all over the surface in one direction. Remove the sheet and replace it with a new one once it's no longer sticky.


Clean with a mild liquid soap solution.


For stubborn stains, try using a mild detergent solution. In a small container, mix warm water with a few drops of mild liquid dish washing soap. Using an old toothbrush, mix the solution. Then gently rub the velvet surface to remove the stains. Afterward, dab a clean lint-free cloth to dry it. Then allow to completely air dry.


Refurbish it.


With some glue and thick wrapping paper, you can refurbish a velvet display if worse comes to worst. If you've tried all the ways to clean it, don't throw it and instead make it look even better. You can also use other materials to cover it like hemp linen, patterned cloth or tissue paper for decoupage. You can also add some embellishments at the edges like old beads or lace.

5 Helpful Tips to Selling Jewelry in Craft Shows |  NileCorp.com

Competition is tough in craft and trade shows, basically because you may be offering the same products with two or more shops. That said, you have to do everything in your power to up your game.

Captivate customers with beautiful displays.


Captivate people with beautiful jewelry displays | NileCorp.com

The most basic of them all, of course, is to have eye-catching displays. You may opt to go DIY and customize them all, but if you don’t have enough time, purchase ready-made ones. It is recommended to use a rotating necklace display or one that can hold multiple necklaces. The same goes for all other items. Doing so will allow you to save more space, and it will be easier for your customers to check out all the pieces.


Know all your items for sale.


Be knowledgeable about all your jewelry items for sale | NileCorp.com.

You should always be able to answer all your customers’ queries. You should know what metal a particular piece is made of, as well as the gemstones if there are any. You should be able to tell them which item is hypoallergenic, as well as the proper care and maintenance of your jewelry. Customers will immediately be turned off if you can’t answer any of their questions.


Be knowledgeable about the colors.


Be knowledgeable about skin tones and the colors that match them | NileCorp.com

You must also know which colors best match a certain skin tone. As we all know, cool skin tones have veins that appear blue, while warm skin tones have veins that appear green. The "cools" look gorgeous with silver-tone and gems in the blue end of the color wheel. The "warms," on the other hand, look perfect with yellow gold-tone and crystals in the red end of the wheel. With this info, you will be able to suggest the right pieces for your customers. You can also give them a few styling tips as well, based on this skin tone rule.


Be honest with your jewelry products.


Be honest about your items for sale | NileCorp.com

If you think a particular piece doesn’t look too appealing to a customer, let them know nicely. Then immediately suggest one that accentuates their features and let them see in the mirror. Don’t just sell for money; make sure your customers will be happy with their purchases. Doing so will also make them feel appreciated. You should also be honest about your products -- if it’s gold-plated, let them know, and do not let it pass as real gold. If the crystal’s lab made, indicate in the tag, otherwise, let them know immediately by putting up a sign, so they won’t assume that it’s a natural crystal.


Offer other pieces.


Offer your customers a variety of other jewelry pieces | NileCorp.com

Lastly, try to offer them other pieces that match the jewelry they chose. You must remember not to hard-sell though, and allow them to decide for themselves, as they might get turned off and change their mind. Allow them to try other pieces and let them see for themselves how the jewelry they chose matches another one. If they decide not to buy another item, that’s okay, and avoid pushing them to. Instead, thank them for their purchase and let them know you’d appreciate if they can buy again next time.
