What’s the difference between a bust and an easel? Is one necklace display better than the other? Which one will work best for YOUR products? There are quite a few questions to ask when putting together a presentation for your necklaces! We think it’s time you had some answers–at least about the difference between these two great necklace display styles.
Here’s the deal:
Necklace busts work best for heavier jewelry or thicker necklaces or for displaying that isn’t going to be moved around a lot (such as a jewelry table in a store). Since the busts tend to weigh more than the easels, they’re often used for display tables in stores, or more elaborate and involved displays at art and craft shows (shows that last for several days). Unlike easels, busts are freestanding and do not pack flat. Although they are bulkier, they can hold heavier jewelry and have a very elegant, classic display look.
Necklace easels are more lightweight, and work well for traveling to shows. They’re also a great way to display chains with pendants, but might not be the best option for heavy necklaces. Easels will also work on a display table, as they are easy to arrange and don’t really take up much room. As the name implies, necklace easels have an easel back, which usually lies flat against the display when not standing up. The easel back is pulled away from the display and secured by another piece of the display that fits into the easel portion to keep the display upright.
So there you have it! Busts and easels are great ways to display necklaces, but the right one for you depends on your jewelry style, as well as where and how you’ll be displaying.
