Advantages of Using Mannequins as your Jewelry Displays

And indeed, these plastic human-sized dolls have come a long way beyond the windows of retail shops, tailors, fashion malls and jewelry stores. In the present times, mannequins are also used for medical trainings, computer simulations and even for crash tests, but that’s a different story altogether.

As for the industry of jewelry merchandising and manufacturing, mannequins play a big role in showcasing and marketing your glitzy items. Furthermore, these larger than life dolls are more than just a steady jewelry display to hold your blings and gems in place.

Here are some other advantages in using mannequins as your jewelry display.

 Of course, someone can always go to your jewelry store and ask you if he/she can try and fit that pearly necklace. On the other hand, having a mannequin can give you an overall peek of what exactly it would look like in a second person perspective.

There’s even a study suggesting that customers will most likely to be attracted and encouraged to buy the item that’s being displayed on a mannequin. It’s a very useful and effective tool in merchandising because it “gives them a better understanding of what would look good on them”.

Space efficiency and strategic placement of items

Need more floor space for customers in your shop? Mannequins – full-sized or not – is one efficient way to save space. Just imagine how many items you can attach onto it. In relation, jewelry display can be tricky, as you must see to it that the items or ensemble that you’re flaunting must be in a spot where everyone can see it without compromising security.
