Gems On Display – YouTube

Any jewelry maker knows the value of a good picture in marketing. A picture can more accurately and captivatingly show the facets of their rings, necklaces, watches, and more than even the most poetic of descriptions could. Even further, with branding and logos tastefully placed, the picture can help express style and signature touches, and leave the customer with a positive impression of the product and the people behind it.

Truly, there’s a reason they say “a picture’s worth a thousand words”.

And what is a video but a thousand pictures?

Gems on Display is proud to introduce our newest series of videos to help provide the best service and information to our discerning clientele. Our videos cover a variety of subjects, including but not limited to: helpful information, easy to follow tutorials, demonstrations of products, unboxing of new items, sneak peeks at the manufacturing process, and much more.

Why Are They Premium?

In the case of our fine cases, premium is defined as “a product of superior quality”. True to the name, the superior quality of premium boxes can be seen as well as felt. For example, the golden linen boxes feature a delicate pattern that adds quality and class not only to the box and its contents, but also to your brand. A classy business deserves a classy display and packaging jewelry box.

The durability of these boxes is also substantial compared to popular alternatives. After measuring in-house, the thickness of the premium box was up to 30% greater than a standard cotton-filled box. This means 30% more protection in shipping for valuable goods such as necklaces, watches, and rings, but it also means 100% superior quality you and your customers are sure to notice. And don’t forget, the premium boxes are filled with jeweler’s batting with anti-tarnish properties.

The Power of Color

Color can change thoughts, cause reactions, and inspire action. Why not inspire a sale with one of our colorful collections? Every premium box dons a delightful and rich color. For example, the royal purple shade invokes a sense of unbeatable regality. Our golden and silver boxes play with the light, catching the eye brilliantly.

However, chromatic pops and metallic flairs are not the only choices. Maybe your needs call for stylish subtlety? Our onyx matte black box is excellent for a simple and clear jewelry display. While our glossy white box could be perfect for a winter arrangement, its flawless sheen also screams modern.

Extras

Besides the varied design options already mentioned, a world of possibilities is open in the form of customization! A colorful, custom print or logo can turn each box into a promotion for your brand, and can shape that first impression into an unforgettable experience.

And why stop at just a cotton-filled box? Browse our equally varied collection of gift bags and create a truly memorable packaging arrangement.

A jeweler’s goal is not only to craft and share fine jewelry with the world, but also to ensure their displays and containers are just as fine as the gems inside. A box and a bag are the first things seen, the first impression. We do not get a second chance to make a good first impression. Let’s help you make yours extraordinary.

Myth versus FACT: 2 Myths That Can Damage Your Jewelry

Fashion, statements, and expression. These are all terms that define jewelry. But our favorite gems are not immune to being damaged by accidents, improper care, or simply the ravages of time. We have all seen them: ‘Tooth paste for your silvers’, ‘lemon juice for your gold.’ The list of DYI jewelry maintenance is endless. But what works for those specialty jewelry? You can ensure that your jewelry lasts longer–perhaps even a lifetime!–by avoiding the following all-too-common jewelry myths which can actually damage or even irreparably destroy your favorite pieces.

Myth#1: DIY Storage Units

One of the most common mistakes people make with their jewelry is simply tossing it on a box or drawer without a second thought. One DYI project is converting an old box into a storage unit. But is this an effective and efficient way of storing jewelry? Let’s look at a couple of examples found here. These are VERY cute ideas!  However, many of these projects can lead to tangles and scratches, just to name two problems. Most of these also leave precious metals open to air, which often leads to oxidation. You need to purchase special jewelry packaging and other display solutions which will keep necklaces from getting tangled, rings from getting scratched, and fine metals from oxidizing. Jewelry packaging comes in many shapes and sizes so be sure to research the best type before you buy. Here are some GREAT solutions Gems On Display offers for jewelry storage and counter displays.

Myth#2: Using DIY cleaning methods on fine jewelry

The DIY myths do not stop at mere storage either, most likely you have come across many do-it-yourself jewelry cleaning solutions such as using dish soap, toothpaste. Here is an example of a DIY cleaner. The basic ingredients include: vinegar and oils. Vinegar should NEVER be applied to fine metals or pearls. Vinegar is an acid that erodes away metals and removes finishes. This is a very HARSH method of cleaning. Your metals may shine for a day or two, but oxidation WILL yield its ugly head. Costume jewelry would fair the worst with this cleaning method, as acids erode the finish. A better alternative is sticking to a gentle cleaning solution. We offer many options as far as jewelry cleaner is concerned such as Realm Jewelry cleaner. This is easy on fine jewelry and gems, and even includes a brush for those hard to reach nooks. Follow this gentle cleaner up with a polishing cloth, and any piece will be restored to its original beauty.

It’s time to get ahead on holiday planning, and we know one of the big things on that to-do list is getting your packaging products lined up and ready to go. Let’s take a look at the packaging products we have to offer, and some of the most popular choices for holiday gift packaging.

Being able to have the gift wrapping already taken care of means a lot to holiday shoppers.

When you’re traveling to shows all summer, you need a display that makes traveling and setting up as easy as possible. After all, the less time you spend setting up, the more time you can spend selling. In addition to necklace easels, we have a couple of options for traveling necklace busts that are also great choices for displaying on the road. What travels light, pack nearly flat, and makes your life easer?

Necklace Easel Display Style

Necklace easels provide great displays with a lot of ease. (You know, an EASE-l. Get it?) Silly jokes aside, this necklace display is ideal for the summer months when traveling to shows, or for setting up on a jewelry display table where you don’t have enough room for busts.

Why are they so great for travel? Well, in addition to being lightweight, easels pack nearly flat, which really helps save on precious space during travel. Easels are the perfect accompaniment for chains, pendant necklaces, and thinly beaded necklaces.

Getting Started with Jewelry Displays?

Just starting out selling jewelry and wondering where to start with your jewelry displays? It can be overwhelming to think about traveling with your jewelry, setting up a booth, and creating an eye-catching display table! We know you want to get started selling your pieces quickly, so we’ve put together just a few tips to help you get started displaying.

1. As a general rule, keep display colors and styles consistent. You can do this in two ways. First, by keeping the colors and materials consistent throughout your displays (all leatherette or velvet, for example, or all light colors or all dark colors). Second, by making sure your displays compliment your jewelry’s style. If your jewelry has a summer beach feel, your jewelry would be better displayed on something like a linen display than on black velvet.

jewelry displays
Note: there is one exception to the above rule! For statement pieces, you'll want a statement display. The focal point of your display should be a display that contrasts with your other displays and stands out.

 

2. Use appropriate displays for your jewelry. For example, would an easel or a bust work best for your necklaces? A finger or slot display for your rings? Do your bracelets work best on a T-bar, or do they need to lie unclasped on a half-moon or ramp? Each style of jewelry is best complemented by particular display styles (and sometimes even a mix of styles).

3. Remember to use different height levels. Keeping varied height levels throughout your display table (especially in groups of three with the “high, higher, highest” elements) will help your customers be able to naturally read your table and easily find what you have to offer. By having everything on the same level or same height, it’s more difficult to differentiate between products and your customers will have a harder time finding items–which means they may give up and look elsewhere.

Although these are a few general rules that help to make displaying consistent and simple, the more you go to shows and set up your displays, you’ll figure out what works for you (and you’ll come up with tricks of your own!). Best of luck as you get started displaying!
