How To Pick Your Jewelry Business Name

It’s the name that the public will know you for so choose well.

You got to admire the optimism of humans in times of crisis. While many remained cooped up at home during the height of COVID-19 restrictions, many saw it as an opportunity to launch businesses and new careers while housebound. Thanks to the internet, starting a home-based online shop has become possible. Many folks started to find ways to monetize their hobbies or develop new skills to profit from. While baking became a favorite of many, there are also those who started creating personal items like scented candles, perfumes, and yes, jewelry to sell. This article is dedicated to those who chose to go with the latter.


Once there is enough jewelry inventory for selling and jewelry display stands for showcasing the merchandise, the next step in making things official is by coming up with a business name for this home-based venture.


Here are some tips that we think are of so much value for those who are in this phase of the business process.

Think of how you would like to be perceived by the public

It helps to think of your business as an entity with an image. Your business represents your brand and it is this idea or perception that the public forms from what they see or hear about you. Naturally, you would want to make a good impression. In order to make a good impression upon hearing the business name, what kind of feelings do you want to evoke from your customers? Luxury? Familiarity? Does your store have an advocacy (e.g. sustainability, eco-friendly products, etc.) that you would like to highlight? Focus on those things to inspire you when coming up with a name for your jewelry business.



Go for easy recall

A good goal for new entrepreneurs to accomplish ー especially those who are just about to launch their business ー is memorability. In establishing the business name, the name should be something that people can easily remember so they can find you quickly online or in person. This would make it also easy for customers both new and old to recommend you to people they know. Avoid using a jewelry business name that’s too long or hard to pronounce. Again, your goal here is to be memorable ー don’t make it hard for folks to say and remember your business name especially when you’re new in the industry.



Make it search engine friendly

What does it mean for a business name to be “search engine friendly?” Aside from it being easy to recall, it should also have words that are commonly used by internet users when searching for jewelry online. Tools such as Google Trends or SEMRush can be used to determine the popularity of keywords. Don’t forget to include these words in your business name and make it easy for the public to find you.



Do “name tests” to see if your chosen words match

Once you’ve settled on some words, check to see if they work when combined by writing them down and reading them out loud. This exercise certainly helps because sometimes the words and phrases we come up with in our minds may appear and sound different in actuality. This gives you an opportunity to make revisions or come up with new words if none fit. Another brainstorming exercise is to come up with sample logos and see how the names you came up with match with the copy. As the use of logos is an important part of branding, take the time to check your copy against mock logos and see how they would appear on your merchandise and marketing materials such as tags, shopping bags, etc. Are they a good match or not?  It’s best to invite your team to help out with this exercise so you could also hear their inputs.



Check to see if the name you’ve selected is free to use

Let’s say you’ve already come up with a business name ー that means all is well and good, right? Unfortunately, there’s also the possibility that the name has already been taken before. To avoid issues with your business name, check to see if it is available or has been trademarked.

How to Find the Best Earrings to Match Different Face Shapes

Arm yourself with this essential jewelry styling and selling skill.

A big part of being a jewelry seller is becoming the go-to person for matters involving jewelry and this goes beyond selling them to your customers. From jewelry customization to styling advice, people may turn to jewelry shops for help in these areas. It’s simply a fact of the industry and it will be to you and the business’ advantage to learn these things and become an expert at them.


Today, let’s look at a certain skill set that sellers must have in their arsenal: helping buyers find earrings that match their face shapes. Because earrings come in different shapes and sizes, it’s natural that some types will suit a particular face shape while for others they may not. Now think of this as a part of your customer service offerings so that your buyers are fully satisfied and walk away with new earrings that best suit them.


You know the importance of having a wide variety of earrings to promote on your store’s earring display showcase; now let this article be your guide to helping folks find the best earring to suit their faces. As we do believe that top-notch presentation is also part of providing great service to jewelry customers, we’ll also be recommending the best jewelry displays for the types of earrings mentioned in this piece.

Drop earrings best suit round faces

To lengthen the appearance of round faces, earrings that “drop” (chandelier earrings, tassel-types, dangling earrings) are the best match for this face type. Avoid rounded pairs as they would only make your face look rounder.


You can identify a round face as it would have very little to zero angles and it would be at its widest around the cheek line. 


Our recommendation:

Drop earrings are best displayed on devices that have bars and open slots that secure the earrings in place such as the #WD417-BR Two-Sided Panel Jewelry Display Stand for displaying Earring Card. This mixed-use wooden display stand is an elegant and economical way to showcase various jewelry types. We do think it’s the perfect tool for displaying drop earrings as they can be freely hung on its chiseled open slots. It’s versatile as it can be hung up on a wall or be left standing on a flat surface for display.

Small round styles soften square-shaped faces

Square-shaped faces would be described as a balanced face shape with the forehead on equal length with the jawline. It may feature sharp corners and the chin is not very prominent. They can be pretty striking in appearance and are commonly seen in models working in high fashion. If, however, you want to minimize the angles, it’s best to go with small round-type earrings such as small hoops, huggie earrings, and studs. Avoid large hoops and square earrings as they can emphasize sharp jawlines.


Our recommendation:


Tiny, delicate earring styles are a great match for this equally sweet earring display stand which comes in a blush color. The #ED-2402-S50 Medium Metal T-Shaped Champagne Pink Earring Display Stand is a great fit for a small pair of earrings.

Chandelier earrings are flattering to diamond-shaped faces

The diamond-shaped face can be a bit of a challenge to pair earrings with, however, chandelier earrings especially those that flare out at the bottom manage to even out this face shape. A face shape is said to be diamond-shaped if it tapers around the forehead and chin. Those who were born with this shape are said to have stunning cheekbones. Another earring type that works well with this one are drop earrings that end just above the chin.


Our recommendation:


Most chandelier earrings that are fan-shaped or anything that does flare out in the bottom almost always comes in bright color. That’s why we think it makes sense to display it using #251-250 Metal Earring Display Stand as the bold hues would look striking against the device’s black metal frame.

Heart-shaped faces match well with earrings with rounded bottoms

How does one identify a heart-shaped face? Also called a V-shaped face, it is widest around the forehead and tapers gradually, just like the letter “V” does. It is a well-coveted look as many who has the face shape are hailed for their visuals in the media. Earrings with rounded bottoms such as teardrop-shaped dangling earrings and those that come in hoops are best suited for this face type. These designs manage to create a balance in the face’s jawline.


Our recommendation:


You don’t have to limit yourself when using jewelry display tools to the type of jewelry they were made originally for. Like in the case of the #NDF571 Paper Twine Wrapped T-Bar Bracelet Display, the way it was built means you can also use it for hoop earrings.

Oval faces can work with every earring style

A variation of the heart-shaped face, oval faces are the most balanced amongst the different face types. It’s not so round, not so long, and not so narrow and pointy ー a perfectly proportioned face shape indeed. Because of this, it is the most versatile as it can work well with any earring type. 


Our recommendation:


The #JWD6012 Jewelry Display Set for Earrings Acrylic Jewelry Tray is a display tool that can accommodate most earring styles. It features 10 rows and comes with 12 pieces of earrings cards to attach your store’s earrings on. 



Make sure to keep these tips to heart and start impressing your customers with your newly acquired styling knowledge!

Jewelry Project Ideas for the Home Jeweler

A hobby that’s a potential money-making venture.


Beaded necklaces hung for display.


Doing handicrafts is always a great way to pass the time. Not only does it keep you on your toes when thinking of concepts, but it’s also a great way to keep the brain alert during the planning and actual creation process. Physically, it also makes for a great exercise and helps hone one’s dexterity very much similar to surgery because the artwork also requires precision.


Perhaps you’ve found yourself bored with some of the stuff you’ve been doing during this whole pandemic, then maybe doing DIY jewelry projects are good ventures for you to try out. Not only will you be filling your jewelry display devices with new beautiful creations, but it’s also a great skill to learn and eventually earn from.

Beaded Bracelet (or beaded anything, really)

Beads are a favorite of many jewelry makers for the variety of designs and looks that can be achieved with them. There are certainly plenty to choose from such as wooden, plastic, crystal, pearls, rhinestones, and shells. Depending on the vibe you are trying to achieve ー an elegant nighttime piece or something more casual fit for the mall or the beach ー there is certainly the right type of bead that’s available for you to use and make beautiful creations of.



Jeweled Headband

Headbands are ultra-feminine accessories that are equally at home being part of a lady’s everyday ensemble or as a headpiece for a formal event such as a wedding. Depending on your material, a headband can look absolutely elegant and understated or dramatic and fanciful. Approach this particular project piece with an open eye as you can find inspiration from nature, old and new fashion trends, or even characters on the screen.

Friendship Bracelet  

Prepare for a wave of nostalgia with this jewelry project idea. Remember creating friendship bracelets when you were a kid back in summer camp? You probably have some fond memories of yourself making these brackets with your campmates so this makes for a great place to start your DIY jewelry project. From the braided styles that were so popular during those summer camp years, you can level up your designs by doing other styles such as those made with ribbon and leather. You can find a lot of those and more from our shop’s Stringing Material section.



Jewelry Inspired by the Different Seasons and Holidays

The different colors and textures associated with a particular season and holidays help so much during the jewelry creation process. How you approach things is up to you. You can be bold and loud using materials that are obvious picks, such as red and green accents for a Christmas-themed one or florals for the spring season, or keep things simple by using the seasons and holidays as inspiration without explicitly taking elements from the occasions.



Ombre

Ombre is a technique used in many art forms (fashion, hairstyling) where one particular color is highlighted by showcasing it from its lightest shade to darkest or vice versa. This can be achieved with beads or by threads.



Accessories Made with Repurposed Items

Here’s an eco-friendly way to create jewelry. In an effort to minimize waste, why not go for repurposing items so they can be turned into accessories? Old items such as buttons, soda pop tabs, or coins are just some of the items on top of our minds that can be fashioned into new jewelry pieces. Thinking of selling stuff from your household? Want to minimize your family waste footprint? Repurposing is the answer. Look around your home for items that can make for great jewelry-making items.



These are just some of our jewelry project ideas that you can do and make on your own. Learn more about jewelry making by looking up classes online such as these courses from Skillshare.
