2019 Big Survey: Jewelers Predict Next Trend in Jewelry

WE ASKED 800-PLUS retail jewelers to take an educated guess at the next breakout category in jewelry.

Here are their top 10 responses:

1. Lab-created diamonds and finished jewelry. (“I think we are already seeing it and it is anything with laboratory-created diamonds.”)

2. Yellow gold (“Yellow gold has been hot, but with the current prices I am not sure.”)

3. Color (also described as rare, exotic and bold. Spinel was mentioned more than once.)

4. Silver (including silver fashion with lab-grown diamonds)

5. Custom and custom bridal

6. Stackable rings and bracelets

7. Men’s jewelry (Fashion, engagement rings and precious metal wedding bands were mentioned.)

8. Pearls

9. Avant-garde or alternative bridal, including anything asymmetrical

10. Pre-owned jewelry, including vintage jewelry, updated estate jewelry, repurposing old jewelry and restoration of a customer’s jewelry

The 2019 Big Survey was conducted in September and October and attracted responses from more than 800 North American jewelers. Look out for all the results in the November issue of INSTORE.

Eileen McClelland is the Managing Editor of INSTORE. She believes that every jewelry store has the power of cool within them.

Retirement, Anniversary or Going Out of Business Sale? Let Wilkerson Handle the Details

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
