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.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
