What Is The Importance Of Wholesale Jewelry Display?

In the jewelry business, having a wholesale jewelry display is essential. Marketing your jewelry becomes easier when you can showcase it for clients to see and admire. If you aim to sell it and make a profit in the business, you should make your product look as attractive as possible. A piece of jewelry can look very elegant when put on a display unit. Make your jewelry look more impressive by having a fashionably elegant box where it can be kept.

Wholesale jewelry display options

A wide selection of display units is available for your jewelry. You can choose from different display units ranging from neck displays, earring trays, adjustable neck displays, ring displays, jewelry display trays and watch displays. After choosing which display item you need, you have to choose which material your display unit should be made up of; this can be leatherette, acrylic, wood, velvet, and a whole lot more. Your choices must be appropriate for the pieces of jewelry that you like to sell.

To highlight the visual charm of the jewelry you are selling, you should know which materials go well with your jewelry. Modern jewelry designs go best on acrylic units with a white leatherette interior while gold and silver pieces of jewelry, as well as those with real or fake diamonds, will look great on wood with a velvet interior. Ethnic or tribal and fashion jewelry will basically suit a plain display unit.

A jewelry display is still significant even after you have sold the jewelry. Putting the item in an attractive box adds value and elegance to the jewelry. The box not only protects the jewelry from getting damaged, but presents it in a more impressive way. Likewise, it also preserves its beauty and elegance for many years. Costume jewelry can even look real when it comes with a case or box.

Collecting jewelry is a good form of investment. It becomes more valuable with time. Many people love to collect pieces of jewelry, including those with precious stones. When you have a collection of jewelry, it is best to have a jewelry display unit in your home so that your jewelry is protected from damage or getting misplaced and consequently lost. It will also make it easier for you to locate your jewelry whenever you need any of it.

When you are a seller of jewelry, having nice packaging for your assorted items will encourage positive feedback among your clients about how well you take care of your items. That impression will stay with your clients and will have them come back for more.

Whether the items you sell are for personal use or as a gift for someone special, having your items comes in attractive packaging will matter to the buyer. It will make your client feel important as well as making your item seem lot more valuable than it actually is.

You may think these small gestures are insignificant, but that is not true. If you are the buyer, you will feel that you are given value as a customer. This is one way you can earn the loyalty of your customers.

Men’s Fashion Advice – Dress For Success

If you want success, you have to dress for it! Most everyone is familiar with the saying, “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” However, hardly anyone seems to follow that advice. People do judge other people by how they look and by what clothing they are wearing.

Quite often, it seems as if the “cover” of the book or our clothing is much more important than the book’s contents. This isn’t fair, of course; however, that’s just the way life is.

The reality is that you are going to be judged based upon what you are wearing.
Your boss, your colleagues, your clients and sometimes even your family and friends – all of these people and more will be looking at what you are wearing and making decisions about you based upon what they see.

Here are some suggestions on how to make sure that your clothing makes a great impression upon everyone who matters:

1. Don’t just buy clothes off the racks at the store – Often, those don’t fit everyone’s body types. Instead, purchase the clothing that fits you best; If you want to go the extra mile here, head to a tailor who can customize the shirts, pants, and jackets to your exact measurements. While you’re at it, have the tailor put cuffs on the pants. This makes the pants hang nicely and keeps them from climbing up your legs as you walk.

2. Wear mostly neutral or dark colors – The main parts of your outfit should be comprised of neutrals or darks; However, you can have a less common accent color as a small part of your outfit. For example: your tie or pocket square (if you wear one) could be an accent color.

3. No “super” flashy patterned ties – Yes, you can wear an accent color on your tie, perhaps with a mild, understated pattern; but, cutesy cartoon ties or loud patterns are not acceptable.

4. Wear dark socks and dark (preferably black) shoes – Brown shoes are acceptable as well with the right outfit, but make sure your socks match it. Your belt should match your shoes – and, yes, always wear a belt…no suspenders, ever.

5. Dress shirts should be white, off-white, or light blue – If you choose any other color, you will find it difficult to find a tie to match; therefore, you will typically wear the same tie every time you wear that shirt. People will notice after awhile, and it will become like a set uniform – you’ll become the Thursday – light-green-shirt-with-the-green-and-brown-tie guy.
Stripes and squares patterns are OK as well, but it should match your outfit and shouldn’t be too dominant.

6. If it’s not “Causal Tuesday” – avoid the Short-sleeved shirts – You don’t want to take off your sports or suit coat and be wearing a short-sleeved shirt. You aren’t going to get too hot in a long sleeved dress shirt – nearly everywhere has air-conditioning these days. However, even if you do get hot, rolled-up sleeves look better than a short-sleeved dress shirt.

7. All of your clothing needs to be neat, clean, and wrinkle-free – You could be wearing a high-end, expensive suit that has been custom-tailored – but, you won’t impress anyone if it has a stain on the pant leg or if the suit jacket looks as if it were slept in. Dry cleaning might be a little expensive sometimes – but it well worth it!

Silver Lining For Jewelry Artists in Current Crisis?

Recent news about the jewelry industry has been grim. Rapaport News reported a 19% decrease in attendance at the prestigious American Gem Trade Association show in February. Tiffany announced it will close its sixteen Iridesse Pearl Stores, opened in 2004. And from the UK is the news that Diamonds and Pearls, a large retailer, is in “administration.”

What does all this mean for the jewelry industry? JCK, an industry publication, recently concluded a series of roundtables with leading manufacturers and retailers. Their conclusions: the industry will consolidate; the credit crunch will continue to be a problem keeping inventories on both the manufacturing and retail levels low; the high price of gold continues to be a problem for manufacturers and retailers; and, both industry sectors will have to find new methods of working together.

But despite low inventory levels and the credit squeeze, retailers will have to keep their shelves stocked. Nothing scares off a potential client quicker than empty showcases. So, it is highly likely that these retailers will be far more open to accepting goods on consignment than in the past.

This is an opportunity for jewelry artists, artists who create one-of-a-kind highly collectible jewelry and who may have previously confined their sales and marketing efforts to art and craft galleries. The opportunity is to educate the consumer about the wonderful work being created by studio artists, a term that originated after WWII and refers to an artist working alone in his studio.

Although many of these artists work in high karat gold and use gemstones, a number of them use lower cost materials. And it is likely that artists who use both expensive and less expensive materials in their work are highly interested in moving their jewelry in this economic climate. So, prices which would be high in good times are probably lower.

The opportunity for artists is to expose their work to a new audience, but one that is also interested in collectible jewelry. The opportunity for jewelers is to display new work. And, the opportunity for consumers is to acquire one-of-a-kind work from artists they may be previously unaware of.
