This Canadian-based company is a small group of people who love everything handmade. Their goal is to make iCraftGifts a household name for handmade gifts. That said, they are very specific about the products in their marketplace; they strictly only accept handmade items. This is the reason why it’s becoming a favorite of shoppers who are into one-of-a-kind items.

Once you’ve picked the online marketplace for your products, it’s time you work on producing high-quality photos of your handmade jewelry. Using a unique jewelry display such as a metal necklace display will allow you take pictures of the items in place, which can add more appeal to your products.

If you own a lot of stud earrings and pairs with backs, the Three-Bar Earring Display is the perfect one to use. It has three layers that can hold 12 pairs in total. Although they can also hold hook earrings, those with long charms such as chandeliers, hoops, and drop earrings are not recommended because of the spacings between the bars. There are also other multiple earring stands that can hold four, eight, and 30 pairs, and are available in black velvet, black leatherette, and white leatherette.


Earring Tree Stand

The Tall T-Shape Earring Stand Burlap Linen features a soft earth color that’s perfect for gemstone earrings and other colorful pairs. Some tree stands can hold more than two pairs, which are perfect for showcasing sets.


Metal earring display
