A well packaged piece of jewelry will not only arrive safely and presentable to your customer, but with the addition of branding your boxes, bags, jewelry cards, pouches, etc. This will allow your company to build image & likeliness with this customer and continue to bring in repeat business.

Jewelry Boxes

3 Simple Packing Solutions for the Holiday Season

Well, winter is finally here. The weather is cooling down and 2020 is finally wrapping up. Speaking about wrapping, have you started your Christmas Shopping yet? Sometimes it can be difficult, or tricky to package your gifts in a presentable way, while still maintaining a budget. No worries, here are three easy, simple, and affordable ways to package your presents this holiday season.

1 Magnetic Ribbon Boxes

If you’re like me, the holidays can get BUSY. There are always places to be and thing to do while you’re shopping for Christmas. This is one of the major reasons why I love the magnetic ribbon series of the jewelry boxes. This box stands alone as one perfect packaging option. The box is made of thick and sturdy paper, while the insert varies between plush foam or a satin fabric wrapping. The box series is also available in many festive colors including a royal red, metallic gold, or icy silver. And to top this box is a perfect little bow. These are wonderful for jewelry like earring pendants charms bracelet s, but they can also accommodate more “odd items” like pens and knick knacks. Check out this series by clicking here.

2 Cotton Filled Boxes

Sometimes I’m not gifting just jewelry. Sometimes the gift is a money card, or silk scarf: A small meaningful gift that begs for a more meaningful presentation. This is where cotton filled boxes play a perfect part of your packaging. These are available in a plethora of colors including red, blue, silver, gold, purple, teal and more! The sizing options are also very accommodating for difficult items. These boxes are available in a premium brand that offers anti-tarnishing jewelers batting cotton. This makes gifting metal items very simple. The best part is the affordable price. These boxes start at 0.25 per unit, and are even printable if that’s your cup of tea.

3 Shipping Delicates – Soft Leatherette Model Boxes

Shipping can be stressful. Is it going to make it in time? And more importantly: will it arrive in one piece? Why not package your gifts in a protective metal box? The leatherette model boxes are a great option for preventing shipping damage. All of these are made of a thick and sturdy metal box and wrapped with a soft touch leatherette material. Meaning they look good while keeping your gift safe for transportation. For an added bit of class and safety, this series sports a nice packer box. Check out this series of box by clicking here.

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.
