Mistakes Everyone Makes with Jewelry Display Cases
Jewelry display cases are a great way to highlight your favorite jewelry in your collection, but there are many rookie mistakes that most everyone makes when it comes to their jewelry display cases. Let’s take a look at 3 mistakes you definitely want to avoid with your own jewelry displays.
Mistake #1: Buying the wrong kind of display case
There are many different types of jewelry displays and many of them are designed with specific jewelry (such as necklaces, rings, bracelets, and earrings) in mind. Some displays are meant to hold more than one type of jewelry, while others are designed to showcase just one type. Make sure you are buying the right type of displays for the jewelry you want to showcase!
Mistake #2: Not rotating out their collection
Far too many people simply put some jewelry on their display stands and never change things up; however, rotating your collection onto your jewelry displays is a great way to highlight all of your favorite jewelry instead of just one thing. In addition, rotating jewelry on display can make it more likely that you’ll wear it instead of leaving it to gather dust in a drawer somewhere.
Mistake #3: Overcrowding their jewelry displays
One of the biggest mistakes people make when it comes to jewelry display cases is overcrowding their displays. You don’t need to have everything on display all at once, and it’s better to have a handful of items that can be spaced out in an aesthetically pleasing way than to cram a bunch of jewelry onto a single display. Overcrowding looks messy, unappealing and can even result in problems such as tangled bracelets or necklaces or even scratched gemstones if you’re not careful. Remember: less is more when it comes to your jewelry display cases.
There are a few things about jewelry that everyone should
know, especially when they’ve started to amass a larger jewelry collection;
this includes things like knowing how to use jewelry display stands to highlight your favorite
pieces, knowing how to keep your jewelry clean, knowing how to use jewelry
display stands to keep your jewelry stored properly, knowing how to wear
complimentary pieces, and so on. But one area of jewelry-wearing is often
over-looked: work-appropriate jewelry. How can you be sure your jewelry is
appropriate to wear in the workplace? Let’s take a look at 3 work-appropriate
jewelry tips that you can’t afford to miss.
Tip #1: Remove one piece before you leave the house.
This tip is often touted as being a general rule of thumb of
jewelry, but it’s definitely more of an essential tip when it comes to the
workplace. You don’t want to look like you’re overdoing it with the
accessories, so it’s best to keep it simple; as a general rule of thumb, two
jewelry accessories (or three if they are very simple and not flashy) is enough
for most workdays.
Tip #2: You can go bold—but only wear one piece that day
If you’re itching to wear your favorite bold chunky pendant
necklace, never fret: you can wear it in the workplace! Just be sure that it’s
the only piece of jewelry you’re wearing that day. Bold pieces draw a lot of
attention and it’s better to wear one statement piece than a statement piece
plus 5 other accessories.
Tip #3: Stick to the rules!
It’s vital that you read up on your workplace’s rules regarding jewelry before you leave the house. Your workplace may have rules about wearing certain types of jewelry for safety or hygienic reasons, or rules regarding what jewelry is appropriate when you interact with customers, teach
Fashion, statements, and expression. These are all terms that define jewelry. But our favorite gems are not immune to being damaged by accidents, improper care, or simply the ravages of time. We have all seen them: ‘Tooth paste for your silvers’, ‘lemon juice for your gold.’ The list of DYI jewelry maintenance is endless. But what works for those specialty jewelry? You can ensure that your jewelry lasts longer–perhaps even a lifetime!–by avoiding the following all-too-common jewelry myths which can actually damage or even irreparably destroy your favorite pieces.
Myth#1: DIY Storage Units
One of the most common mistakes people make with their jewelry is simply tossing it on a box or drawer without a second thought. One DYI project is converting an old box into a storage unit. But is this an effective and efficient way of storing jewelry? Let’s look at a couple of examples found here. These are VERY cute ideas! However, many of these projects can lead to tangles and scratches, just to name two problems. Most of these also leave precious metals open to air, which often leads to oxidation. You need to purchase special jewelry packaging and other display solutions which will keep necklaces from getting tangled, rings from getting scratched, and fine metals from oxidizing. Jewelry packaging comes in many shapes and sizes so be sure to research the best type before you buy. Here are some GREAT solutions Gems On Display offers for jewelry storage and counter displays.
Myth#2: Using DIY cleaning methods on fine jewelry
The DIY myths do not stop at mere storage either, most likely you have come across many do-it-yourself jewelry cleaning solutions such as using dish soap, toothpaste. Here is an example of a DIY cleaner. The basic ingredients include: vinegar and oils. Vinegar should NEVER be applied to fine metals or pearls. Vinegar is an acid that erodes away metals and removes finishes. This is a very HARSH method of cleaning. Your metals may shine for a day or two, but oxidation WILL yield its ugly head. Costume jewelry would fair the worst with this cleaning method, as acids erode the finish. A better alternative is sticking to a gentle cleaning solution. We offer many options as far as jewelry cleaner is concerned such as Realm Jewelry cleaner. This is easy on fine jewelry and gems, and even includes a brush for those hard to reach nooks. Follow this gentle cleaner up with a polishing cloth, and any piece will be restored to its original beauty.
It’s not enough to simply throw your jewelry in a box and call it a day—not only does that lead to problems like tangling, damage or even lost pieces, it simply looks messy and doesn’t lend itself well to an organized life. Jewelry that is displayed in an organized manner not only looks better but prevents damage to your pieces.
Jewelry stores are like wonderland for women. The wish to own shiny jewelry is found in every woman. However, women are not attracted to all jewelry stores. Ever wondered why? The answer is very simple. Because the jewelry is not well displayed. No matter how cool the designs are, how less the prices are and how beautiful the packing is, if the jewelry is not displayed in an organized and presentable manner, women will not consider buying it. This is when the need of jewelry displays become inevitable. Continue reading →

As summer is winding down and fall is almost upon us, it’s time to start thinking about the holiday season that is rapidly approaching! It’s time to get ahead on holiday planning, and we know one of the big things on that to-do list is getting your packaging products lined up and ready to go. Let’s take a look at the packaging products we have to offer, and some of the most popular choices for holiday gift packaging.
Choosing the right merchandise bag is important. You want something that reflects your branding well, but that also reflects the fact that it is the holiday season. We offer a selection that ranges from paper merchandise bags to high end gift bags–all in a wide variety of colors and styles.
Choose a tissue paper that complements your gift bag of choice! The addition of tissue paper really makes purchasing special for your customers. Even if the purchased item isn’t for them, they will feel like they are getting a gift. Also, with the addition of tissue paper, they have a ready-to-gift item. Being able to have the gift wrapping already taken care of means a lot to holiday shoppers.
Along the same lines as tissue paper, a bow really makes your packaging special during the holidays. Browse through our selection for bow and bag pairing options to find the color combo that matches your branding!
Last, but certainly not least, jewelry boxes are very important! From gold and silver cotton filled boxes, to the luxury wood boxes, we have you covered. One of our most popular options for holiday shopping is the Magnetic Ribbon Box Series. This series has three color options, including a red and white option that is perfect for the holiday season. These high quality paper boxes already come with a ribbon and bow, making them the perfect choice for an instant gift.
