Wedding proposals are some of life’s most unexpected but much-loved rituals. Jewelers, naturally, have a huge role in making sure they turn out successful. Helping people pick the right ring matters, so here are a few tips from us to help you make a sale, and for your customers to make their dream proposals come true.

Show your shop’s ring collection in the best light

Making a successful sale doesn’t begin when the customer approaches you to inquire about a particular item. No, it starts way before that and it happens the moment the customer enters your shop’s door. Make sure your jewelry display calls out to potential buyers and entices them to make a purchase. You can achieve this by having a neat and easy-to-navigate store layout, along with retail display setups that are elegant and pleasing to the eyes. This can be achieved with the right placements and lighting.

Let them talk and be ready to listen

This is no ordinary piece of jewelry. There’s a lot of thought and meaning put into its purchase so open your ears to listen attentively and be interested in what the customer has to say about it. They may go into storytelling mode when you start asking questions, and so just let them be. The things they tell you about their relationship and the person they’re buying the ring for will help you make the right ring recommendation.

Make adjustments when necessary

Different customers mean different personalities. Some may have planned everything down to the nitty-gritty details while others may still be confused over what ring to pick. Be flexible enough to accommodate these two different kinds of customers and those who may fall somewhere in between. Step back or offer suggestions depending on the situation.

Avoid asking about budget outright

You can safely navigate the money talk by asking specifics about the ring. Inquire about the 4Cs (carat, cut, color, and clarity) and from there you can give your best recommendations based on the responses.

Make them feel pampered

Engagement ring buying may be a fun and exciting ritual but it can also be incredibly stressful on the part of the customer, so make sure you’re doing what you can to put them at ease. Take them to a special area in your store where you can ask them the questions away from other customers. This will give them the assurance that you’re giving them extra attention for this special occasion. Have assistants ready to bring in not just the jewelry selection, but also refreshments and small bites during the consultation. Be there for them until they’ve made their purchase and provide escorts as they exit the store.
