2 Display Arrangements You NEED To Check Out

Before a customer even sets foot in your store, the first things they see are your window displays. These displays need to reflect your business, but sometimes a theme can get stale. I (like many others in the Jewelry Biz) love to explore options I may not have considered previously. Specifically, I enjoy putting an amazing signature look together. Achieving this signature style does not have to cost a fortune. In fact, I’ve crunched the numbers here for you and offer some exciting options for your next display and packaging arrangement.

  • Black Leatherette With a Coordinating Box

I am in LOVE with the modern style I see sprouting up in my shops and local restaurants. Less is becoming more in this ever evolving fashionista driven world. What better way to make a statement with the sleek and humble black leatherette line? This collection offered by Gems On Display can be found HERE.

To make a cohesive display arrangement, it’s best to have a dimensional depth to your window displays. I personally recommend the 189-2L (BK).

This display is such a statement piece. The gentle curves and fantastic base are SO characteristic to the modern style. This display should be a SPECIAL display for a SPECIAL piece. The quality is felt in the hand on this display as well, VERY well put together. Overall, it’s a remarkable display.

Necklaces usually pair with a set of earrings, bracelets and more. For the front of the arrangement, I recommend the 210-A, 218-2AL (BK), and the 252-3 (BK)


210-A

These displays have a pleasant and tasteful height variance. Gorgeous overall, and easy on the pocket book. An arrangement like this only costs around $60.

The arrangement doesn’t end there though. How will your customers take home their new statement pieces? Fortunately, Gems On Display offers a WIDE variety of jewelry boxes. I would recommend either the Classic Model Series, which is a simple leatherette box. It’s a timeless classic. These boxes just DON’T go out of style. If you want something a little more versatile though, a cotton-filled box is a great route to go as well. Both box styles have the option of custom printing, which adds that finishing touch to the entire arrangement. 

Overall, the modern display style is a great route to explore for someone who wants a timeless feel. 

  • Linen Displays, Wooden Displays, and Kraft Boxes

Summer-time fun-time. Who hasn’t heard that in the jewelry making industry? I like to pair my summer time jewelry themes with cream colors or a natural wooden display. Gems On Displays’ natural wood displays compliment the linen displays perfectly. To create a physically appealing display arrangement, I start with larger more statement displays either in the back or at the shoulder of the set. The PERFECT displays for this are: 101024 N, 101006 N, and the 181N LE.

With these 3 displays you can easily accent your statement pieces. The natural color of the wood and linen displays pair perfectly with tans, teals, sea foam, cyans, dark reds, and nearly every beach color scheme. 

As far as your front-most display arrangements, I really love keeping with that color theme. If I am displaying bracelets or earrings, there are a couple of options to explore from there. You can easily display earrings with a simple t-bar earring stand (ED-2401N-LE) and if I have any bracelets, I like to reiterate the wooden organic theme with another wooden bracelet ramp (383554 N).

Overall, this is an arrangement that you can tuck away for the season, and then re-use for the next summer-time season easily. These displays are sturdy as well as fashionable. As long as they are stored in a cool-dry environment, the materials stand the test of time very well, and overall are very easy to rework into a new display arrangement. For example, the wooden themed displays are not limited to a summer time theme. These wooden displays pair well with the white leatherette collection. With an arrangement like that, you can easily build a winter wonderland themed display arrangement that really turns head.

Summery

Your displays are your own. They need to reflect your individual and unique style. More so than that, a lasting theme is an investment. One display arrangement tastefully put together and gently used can last well over a year. The returns will speak for themselves.

  • Converting a BROWSER to a BUYER

Conversion rates are everything to a successful online business. In fact, browsers can end up COSTING your company money! How does one covert the tepid browser into a loyal customers? One word: PHOTOS! A breath-taking photo is the only way a browser can interact with a product without the important tactile interactions.

There is an EASY fix for that barrier. Give them a photo they can touch with their eyes.    Our burlap and linen lines are perfect compliments to creating this effect. These collections are very wide and reasonable. Arrange your products respectfully on any of our beautiful jewelry displays. This brings us to our next point.

  • Arrange Your Products Respectfully

How does one project an air of respectability with photos? One way to do that is to store and display them in a way that demonstrates their value. What better way of showing this then with a modern bust or storing them in a wooden tray? Many of our busts project a feeling of respectability WITH a respectable price. Our quality is sure to impress not only you, but also your customers.

It is clear that a jewelry display is so much more than JUST a display. They are a means of converting a browser to a buyer.

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?

Hello New Boxes

You never get a second chance to make a good first impression. When it comes to jewelry boxes, who wants to settle for just a good first impression, when you can make an outstanding one? Introducing: our premium, jeweler’s batting cotton-filled boxes, crafted right here in the United States. Vibrant colors and rich textures are now available, with our newest colors including: royal purple, electric orange, deep brick red, calming blue, and sassy pink. Whether it’s to catch attention, establish a unique color scheme, or follow a signature style, our premium selection of cotton-filled jewelry boxes will more than suit your needs.  Browse our inventory for even more options to find the perfect combination of color, texture, and pattern for you.

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.

3 Mistakes Everyone Makes with Jewelry Display Cases

Mistakes Everyone Makes with Jewelry Display Cases

A perfect display arrangement. Simple and sleek
Here is a great example of a simple and sleek display!

Jewelry display cases are a great way to highlight your favorite jewelry in your collection, but there are many rookie mistakes that most everyone makes when it comes to their jewelry display cases. Let’s take a look at 3 mistakes you definitely want to avoid with your own jewelry displays.

Mistake #1: Buying the wrong kind of display case

A ring show tray is a perfect way of displaying wedding bands. The tray should ADD not DISTRACT!

There are many different types of jewelry displays and many of them are designed with specific jewelry (such as necklaces, rings, bracelets, and earrings) in mind. Some displays are meant to hold more than one type of jewelry, while others are designed to showcase just one type. Make sure you are buying the right type of displays for the jewelry you want to showcase!

Mistake #2: Not rotating out their collection

Vary your supplies by pairing unique pieces together. Too much of a good thing can convey a lack of variety.

Far too many people simply put some jewelry on their display stands and never change things up; however, rotating your collection onto your jewelry displays is a great way to highlight all of your favorite jewelry instead of just one thing. In addition, rotating jewelry on display can make it more likely that you’ll wear it instead of leaving it to gather dust in a drawer somewhere.

Mistake #3: Overcrowding their jewelry displays

It can be hard for a customer to navigate your jewelry, if there’s a high clumping of interest.

One of the biggest mistakes people make when it comes to jewelry display cases is overcrowding their displays. You don’t need to have everything on display all at once, and it’s better to have a handful of items that can be spaced out in an aesthetically pleasing way than to cram a bunch of jewelry onto a single display. Overcrowding looks messy, unappealing and can even result in problems such as tangled bracelets or necklaces or even scratched gemstones if you’re not careful. Remember: less is more when it comes to your jewelry display cases.

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.

As summer is winding down and fall is almost upon us, it’s time to start thinking about the holiday season that is rapidly approaching! 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.

Merchandise Bags

Choosing the right merchandise bag is important. You want something that reflects your branding well, but that also reflects the fact that it is the holiday season. We offer a selection that ranges from paper merchandise bags to high end gift bags–all in a wide variety of colors and styles.

Tissue Paper

Choose a tissue paper that complements your gift bag of choice! The addition of tissue paper really makes purchasing special for your customers. Even if the purchased item isn’t for them, they will feel like they are getting a gift. Also, with the addition of tissue paper, they have a ready-to-gift item. Being able to have the gift wrapping already taken care of means a lot to holiday shoppers.

Bows

Along the same lines as tissue paper, a bow really makes your packaging special during the holidays. Browse through our selection for bow and bag pairing options to find the color combo that matches your branding!
