In the city of Bangkok, Thailand, the gem and jewelry district is a hub of business activity. A 59-story mixed-use skyscraper was built in 1996 for the Jewelry Trade Center. Designed by Hellmuth, Obata & Kassabaum, this building is the eighth-tallest in Thailand. Although a large number of visitors will likely pass by this structure, the mall itself does not seem overly crowded.
In order to qualify, your piece of jewelry must have a value that is at least double its original purchase price. For example, if you’re trading in a $500 ring, the new earring should be worth a minimum of $1,000. Also, store credit is not issued on trade-ins; you must choose the new jewelry at the time of upgrade. In addition, the jewelry must have a similar value. It’s not uncommon for the store to offer a credit toward the purchase price of a new piece, but this is not always the case.
Health guidelines for participating in a jewelry trade show can be quite varied. Health guidelines vary by region, and the local health department has to consider this. Some trade shows require that attendees wear a face covering approved by a physician, frequently wash their hands, and not shake hands with strangers. These regulations aim to protect both the jewelry industry and consumers. Regardless of the location, the health guidelines are crucial to ensure a successful event. If you don’t follow these guidelines, you risk exposing yourself to harmful bacteria.
While it may be intimidating to jump into the jewelry trade, you need to remember that there are many opportunities to succeed in it. You can start a jewelry line from home or sell it to a local retailer. You can even set up an online store and sell your pieces. Once you’ve acquired the necessary materials, you can sell them to other retailers or designers. If you’re not interested in selling your pieces in a retail location, it’s a great idea to hold a sample sale in your home studio.
Fashion and fast-fashion aren’t immune to the effects of the jewelry industry. However, some high-end items are becoming more popular with consumers. In December 2012, H&M introduced a line of Anna Dello Russo jewelry with items costing EUR20 to EUR300. Meanwhile, German branded jewelry players like Beeline add hundreds of new pieces every month. The standard industry strategy is to launch two collections per year. But that may not be enough in today’s world.
If you’re looking for a new designer, there are a number of international brands that will be at the show. Some are well-known, while others are relatively unknown. Whatever your style, JCK has the perfect designer for your new collection. If you’re a jewelry designer, it will help to know which ones have a strong following among high-end buyers. And if you’re a consumer, a jewelry trade show can help you find them.
