Jewelry Displays Designed to Sell

In one sense the jewelry we wear is a reflection of our personality. Jewelry is used to look glamorous in our own kind of way. Metals and stones are often priceless items when crafted into a beautiful piece specifically for the owner. A piece of jewelry on sale should be displayed effectively to portray its finest qualities.Jewelry comes in all budget sizes, from chunky party wear and costume jewelry that is comparatively inexpensive, to semi-precious jewelry to top-of-the line jewelry with precious metals and stones. Each kind of jewelry will attract a different kind of clientele – and should be displayed accordingly.There all many styles and types of jewelry but there is one common thread amongst jewelry buyers: a nice piece of jewelry should appear more pricey than it actually is. There are two ways to ensure a fine piece of jewelry; quality design and construction, as well as a unique design. After all, when looking for a nice piece of jewelry, who wants the same thing everyone already has?Given below are several points that address the two major aspects of jewelry display – safety and effectiveness.Effectiveness1.Jewelry Is Exclusive: The display unit should contain just a few special pieces that are well spaced out so that customers can appreciate each piece can individually.2. Jewelry Is Precious And Expensive: The lighter and more discrete the piece, the more expensive it is likely to be. The more expensive a piece of jewelry is, the more distant it should be kept from other jewelry so that its exclusivity stands out. This may seem a difficult proposition, especially when space means money. A way around this is to display just a few pieces at a time. Interested customers can be shown other similar pieces that are kept in closed units. This also allows the merchandiser to frequently rotate the pieces on display and give the display a new look.3. Jewelry Can Be Made To Suit Different Budgets: Every woman loves to adorn herself with jewelry, but each woman has a different priority when spending money for jewelry. A Jewelry display should be discretely divided into different budget segments. Pricing should be discrete, as it is considered ‘vulgar’ to advertise the amount you are spending on jewelry.4. Trained Staff who are knowledgeable about the metal and stones used in the jewelry are an asset, as customers often have limited knowledge on the subject. Staff should also have good selling skills to be able to judge the mood of the customer. They should know when to give the customer a little space to make the ‘buying decision’ and whether or not presenting too many choices to the customer will help them make a choice or confuse them.Safety1. Trained and vigilant staff will help prevent a lot of thefts. The staff should quickly and discretely be able to account for all the pieces of jewelry under their charge (i.e., they should be able to tally the pieces that have been taken out to be shown, the pieces being put back and the pieces being bought).2. Security is a major issue at all jewelry stores, especially those selling expensive jewelry. The security should be effective; however, it should also establish a balance between being visible (so as to discourage sticky fingers) and being discrete.3. Security systems should be secure! They should not be easy to tamper with. This also tends to make them expensive, but it is money well spent. Security systems should consist of locked cabinets, security cameras and monitors, exclusive security personnel. An important aspect of security is that it also calls for co-operation from the local police.Keep in mind that the design of your jewelry displays will be dictated by the kind of jewelry you sell and the profile of your target clientele.Well-displayed jewelry is half sold.
