A trademark filing suggests Amazon might have big plans for the jewelry market.

The company is seeking to trademark the brand “For Keeps by Amazon” to be used for “precious metals and their alloys and goods in precious metals” as well as the “online retail sales of jewelry,” Business Insider reports.

The filing with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is not conclusive proof of what the company plans to do. But by the Business Insider’s analysis, it could mean Amazon is looking to “double down” on jewelry. 

Amazon currently sells a line of value-oriented jewelry called the Amazon Collection. Another private-label offering would take the company deeper into that arena, in line with the strategy it’s pursuing in many other product categories, from clothing to furniture.

Amazon did not respond to Business Insider’s request for comment.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
