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

If you’ve been following our emails, you’ve seen the price changes we’ve been making in recent weeks. We are very excited about these lower prices and wanted to share with you why we’re doing this and what it means for you.
It has always been the goal of Gems on Display to assist you in every way possible as you take your company to the next level. Whether that has been through jewelry displays, packaging, custom logo printing, or all of the above, our commitment to you has remained unchanged. Providing you with excellent customer service, high quality products and affordable prices is important to us.
After some thought, we’ve decided that we can serve you best by re-evaluating our pricing and making reductions wherever we are able. It won’t happen all at once, but we’re going through our inventory piece by piece to see where we can make things more affordable for you.
We’ll also be continuing our offer of free shipping for orders over $75 and flat rate shipping for orders under $75. * It may appear that some of our competitors have lower product costs, but you’ll find that when you add in their shipping costs, your total order cost will be higher than anticipated. We don’t think this is fair to you, which is why we’re lowering prices and keeping our shipping simple. We want your total order cost to be as affordable as possible.
One final note, we haven’t changed products or suppliers. The only time we do that is when we’re able to offer you a better product or value. These price reductions are for the same products you know and love. (Spoiler alert: some of these price cuts are as high as 45%!)

This popular jewelry storage organizer has a new, lower price!

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.
It’s that time of year again! The hustle and bustle of making jewelry, packing it up, traveling to shows and setting up your booth or display table. One of the best time-tested ways to travel to shows is with a carrying case full of jewelry trays and tray liners. However, it can take time to find the right case, choose the trays, and then pick out the liners. Our Carrying Case Kit (available for a limited time) takes the guesswork out of shopping for a carrying case and saves you time! Here are the details…
The case is our largest water-resistant canvas case that has wheels for easy transportation, a pull-out handle, and space for 17 1″ trays. The 91-4A is a side-loading case has a dual zipper to make placing trays in the case a breeze. This case also folds down compactly for easy storage.
The Trays & Liners:
Here’s the real time-saving part of the Kit–it comes with (17) of our popular TY-0011-BK 1″ plastic stackable jewelry trays and (17) assorted tray liners. The included inserts are as follows: (2) 96-07 (BK), (2) 96-08 (BK), (2) 96-10 (BK), (2) 96-18 (BK), (2) 96-24 (BK), (2) 96-50 (BK), (2) 93-1 (BK), (2) 92-72E BK, (1) 68-H-BK. All your jewelry needs will be covered with this assortment of liners!
Travel Tip: Worried about your jewelry staying safely in place during travel? Our foam ring liner (item 97-72E) doubles as a protector when placed over your jewelry! Learn all about it in our Jewelry Show Tip video on YouTube!

When you’re traveling to shows all summer, you need a display that makes traveling and setting up as easy as possible. After all, the less time you spend setting up, the more time you can spend selling. In addition to necklace easels, we have a couple of options for traveling necklace busts that are also great choices for displaying on the road. What travels light, pack nearly flat, and makes your life easer?
The Traveling Necklace Bust!
This bust has a pop-out back.
Packs almost flat for easy traveling.
And it doesn’t stop there. Try a combo traveling bust to display jewelry sets! Showing your customers pairing options in one place is a great way to get a bigger sale.
The traveling necklace bust is also available in several other options, including a tall necklace display.
Need a display with less height? Another fabulous options for traveling is this pop-up necklace display, which packs flat and pops up to create a low profile bust. It works well for choker-style necklaces or thicker beaded necklaces.
What’s your favorite traveling necklace display? Browse more necklace bust options.
Necklace easels provide great displays with a lot of ease. (You know, an EASE-l. Get it?) Silly jokes aside, this necklace display is ideal for the summer months when traveling to shows, or for setting up on a jewelry display table where you don’t have enough room for busts.
Why are they so great for travel? Well, in addition to being lightweight, easels pack nearly flat, which really helps save on precious space during travel. Easels are the perfect accompaniment for chains, pendant necklaces, and thinly beaded necklaces.
Love to layer? Try a tiered necklace easel to create a beautiful layered look your customers will crave. You can be free to express your display style with necklace easels, as they come in a wide variety of sizes, styles, colors, and textures. What’s your favorite way to use necklace easels?
Just starting out selling jewelry and wondering where to start with your jewelry displays? It can be overwhelming to think about traveling with your jewelry, setting up a booth, and creating an eye-catching display table! We know you want to get started selling your pieces quickly, so we’ve put together just a few tips to help you get started displaying.
1. As a general rule, keep display colors and styles consistent. You can do this in two ways. First, by keeping the colors and materials consistent throughout your displays (all leatherette or velvet, for example, or all light colors or all dark colors). Second, by making sure your displays compliment your jewelry’s style. If your jewelry has a summer beach feel, your jewelry would be better displayed on something like a linen display than on black velvet.
Note: there is one exception to the above rule! For statement pieces, you'll want a statement display. The focal point of your display should be a display that contrasts with your other displays and stands out.
2. Use appropriate displays for your jewelry. For example, would an easel or a bust work best for your necklaces? A finger or slot display for your rings? Do your bracelets work best on a T-bar, or do they need to lie unclasped on a half-moon or ramp? Each style of jewelry is best complemented by particular display styles (and sometimes even a mix of styles).
3. Remember to use different height levels. Keeping varied height levels throughout your display table (especially in groups of three with the “high, higher, highest” elements) will help your customers be able to naturally read your table and easily find what you have to offer. By having everything on the same level or same height, it’s more difficult to differentiate between products and your customers will have a harder time finding items–which means they may give up and look elsewhere.
Although these are a few general rules that help to make displaying consistent and simple, the more you go to shows and set up your displays, you’ll figure out what works for you (and you’ll come up with tricks of your own!). Best of luck as you get started displaying!
