Company aiming to address change in female consumer behavior.

Pandora is charting a new design strategy and hoping to capture an emerging customer demographic, as WWD writes. The article says that the company has identified a change in consumer behavior – specifically the rise of the “self-empowered” female shopper – and that it will renew its focus on categories such as rings and earrings to address that change.

“I think that, in the past, we were designing charms – and then jewelry. What we do now is design concepts for jewelry and within those concepts there is the charm category,” Stephen Fairchild, senior vice president and chief creative officer at Pandora, told the news outlet.

The article adds that Pandora has worked with a consulting agency to tailor its messaging for the 21st century consumer. “Women are much more self-empowered, more confident within themselves, and also very confident in self-purchasing,” says Fairchild. “Whereas in the past I would primarily say that the jewelry industry was all about gifting, the interesting shift is that now the consumer is willing to gift to herself.”

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
