Jewelry as Teacher’s Gift

 

The end of the school year is near, and with it comes a great sales opportunity.  Promote the fashion jewelry in your store as a year-end gift for teachers!  Whether classic designer-inspired or fun and trendy, teachers will love receiving a unique gift, moms will love giving something special and affordable, and you will love the extra sales!

(And don’t forget - Mother’s Day is May 10!)

 

Caring For Fashion Jewelry

With proper care, fashion jewelry will last a long time. Here are tips to keep it looking as good as the day it was purchased.

1) Moisture can tarnish the surface of costume jewelry, so never bathe or shower with jewelry on.

2) When not wearing jewelry, store it separately in ziplock bags to limit exposure to air and oxidation, which can break down metal over time. This also keeps it free of moisture, tangles, and scratches.

3) Lotion, make-up, perfume and hair spray can damage jewelry, so make putting on jewelry the last thing you do before heading out the door.

4) If you notice a bit of tarnish, use a cleaner that states it is compatible with costume jewelry. We recommend Sassy’s Jewelry Cleaner ER1 and Buff Cloth ER13 to make it look like new.

TREND ALERT:  DESIGNER-INSPIRED JEWELRY

 

Tough economic times call for financial restraint, which is good news for costume jewelry retailers!

 

Consumers may refrain from high end luxury items, but will still treat themselves to small indulgences.  Apparel sales are down, but sales of lipstick are soaring.  No budget for fine jewelry?  Designer-inspired jewelry is the perfect solution to treating yourself without breaking the budget!
