Why Jewelry Stores Profit During the Holidays

The holidays are the perfect occasion to give customers with a piece of eye-catching jewelry and matching packaging. Every product can be highlighted in your shop to stand out among seasonal merchandise during your high selling season. We've compiled two main points to consider to have your high selling season be maximized to the fullest! Enjoy!


Highlighting Your Jewelry 

The first step for any retailer whose stock includes accessories is effectively advertising the stylish goods you have for sale inside your store. Gold and silver jewelry should be better accented on darker structures like black velvet square risers or necklace display stands. These classic pieces look both sleek and professional, and match with any retail tone. To flawlessly match the sophistication of your jewelry, you'll want pricing to be equally professional in appearance. Look for markers and backing cards with a bit of character, such as jewelry tags in a gold tone.





Seasonal Holidays Packaging

Proper jewelry supplies are a necessity year-round, but never more so than during the holiday season. For complete preparation, be sure to have a sufficient stock of packaging products on hand. Essentials for safe and stylish transfer include jewelry boxes and earring display holders. Velvet and organza pouches are a particularly classic piece, which come in a variety of fabrics and colors. Metallic hues and fun patterns like leopard print and floral designs. Jewelry gift boxes can be equally diverse and emphasize the point that good things really do come in small packages.

The Colors You Choose For Your Jewelry Display Can Affect Your Sales

With today’s tough business competition, it’s highly important for retailers to understand the art of persuasion and the factors that affect shopper’s behavior. Though there are a lot of factors that can influence consumers, their first impression are mostly driven by the colors they see in your store and in your brand in general.

jewelry-display


While color trends may change depending on the season, color psychology doesn’t. If you’re planning to redecorate your jewelry store or recreate your store’s necklace display stands, you should be aware that consumers regard the color you use as a significant factor in their decision to buy.

Color and its Impact to Consumers

A comprehensive infographic by Kissmetrics shows in great detail how colors can influence your consumer’s purchase. It shows how you can use colors to attract different types of buyers.

Red, black and royal blue draws the attention of impulse buyers that it is appropriately used in clearance sale or when introducing a new line of jewelry in your store. Black is also used to market luxury products so if you’re selling expensive jewelry, you can use a black necklace display or black ring holders to highlight jewelry and accessories.

Similarly, navy blue and teal draws the attention of budget shoppers and can be used if you are selling jewelry in bulk discounts. Blue is also known to increase the sensation of trust and security. It can be used in decorating wholesale jewelry stores and large department stores.

Clothing stores, fashion boutiques, jewelry stores and shoe outlets use pink, rose and light blue to market products to women and young girls. These colors often bring out the romantic side of the consumers and appeal to the emotions of the shoppers.

Color Association


It is common for people to associate the colors they see everyday to specific ideas, memories or feelings. This idea can also be used to enhance your jewelry display. Use different colors that are closely associated with the season like orange, red maple, and brown for fall; and blue and white for winter season. If you are selling environment friendly jewelry, use a necklace holder with a touch of green and yellow for a more natural effect.

While it’s great to use different colors in your store earring  display holders and jewelry stands, it’s also best to consider how it goes well with your brand. Consistency in the colors you use from your jewelry display, to your packaging and store interior can help in increasing brand recall.

Gold Earring Talk

Gold is definitely the choice when it comes to jewelry material.  Throughout the centuries, gold has become a standard, not just in the world of anything that glitters, but also in the worlds of business and finance. This is why gold jewelry has also been a very popular instrument when it comes to investing. Those who choose to invest their money in jewelry know the importance of the carat of the gold jewelry that they buy.

This is why most of those who invest in jewelry prefer the 22K to 24K jewelry pieces.  Those that have an earring display holders with the higher carats of gold are sure to be always visited by investors and fashionable women alike. We also know that there are different kinds of gold that are available in the market, depending on where they have been sourced.

Different Kinds of Gold in the market

  • Italian Gold


This is generally 14K in rating, which means it contains around 58.5% pure gold.  Its 18K variety would mean it contains 75% gold. It has a reddish hue particularly because of the alloy that is added to it.  It is the copper that gives it its distinct color.

  • Chinese Gold

It has a high karat value, usually at 22K, which means it is 91.7% gold. It is closer to the gold color that we know because of the zinc that is present to the alloy that is added to it. Most of the people who invest in jewelry prefer to purchase jewelry with this kind of gold.

  • Saudi Gold


This has a higher karat compared to the other two.  It has a deeper and darker gold color because most of the jewelry made of this kind of gold is rated 24 karats, or the type that contains almost pure gold.

It really depends on the design and usage which to choose.  High karat level gold is best saved for special occasions, like engagement or wedding rings. For daily use like earrings, get one from the earring display that has lower karat value. Gold that has lower karat value is sturdier as well, as the purer the gold is, the more malleable it actually is, which is why you may remember old people take a bit of gold to see if it is tough or "chewy."

How to Choose Jewelry for your Skin Color

Look for an area on your body where your veins are visible. Usually, the wrist is good enough. Based on the color of your veins, your skin tone have one of these two categories: cool and warm.

Your skin tone is cool if you have bluish colored veins. People with this kind of skin tone sometimes have pinkish or rosy undertones when they look in the mirror. Their eye color range from light blue to dark brown. Most people have cool skin, even those with dark skin or tan skin.

If you have greenish veins, then you have a warm skin tone. People with this kind of skin tone might see yellow or golden undertones when they look in the mirror. The eye color can be of any color. People with red, orange or strawberry blonde hair always have warm skin. It does not mean that you have a warm skin tone just because you have dark skin.

To pick a jewelry from the necklace display, choose metals like silver, platinum, and white gold if you have cool skin tone. If you have warm skin tone, choose gold, pewter, brass and copper. Cool skin tones can also go with white pearls and diamonds. They should choose colored jewels that are pink, purple, blue, red and magenta.

For warm skin tone, choose coral or golden toned pearls. They should also wear earthy colored stones like those of color brown, orange, green, yellow, peach, coral, and turquoises.

If you want to look fabulous with jewelry, make sure that the ones you pick from your necklace display complement your skin tone. Moreover, the best rule is choose something you like and you are comfortable wearing, regardless of what you look like.

Put it back on a necklace display first.
