All types of jewelry, top of the line or fashion costume jewelry should be stored and packaged for sale appropriately. Jewelry gift boxes are always a good option for packaging and mailing sold jewelry pieces. Organza bags is another beautiful way to “wrap up” sold jewelry at retail outlets or for mailing.
If you are mailing a jewelry package, be sure to secure the gift box or organza bag within bubble wrap and a bubble wrap envelope. If you don’t, there is a good chance the package will arrive damaged.
I received a package of stud earrings once from Bulgaria that were beyond repair by the time they got to me in the mail. Some of the stud posts were bent over and I could not bend them back straight. Other stud posts were completely broken off the backs of the earrings. The package was not securely packaged in bubble wrap, just rolled up in some tissue paper and placed in a plain envelope. Needless to say, I was not a happy recipient of this package and neither will your customers be happy to receive damaged jewelry. There are ways to securely send jewelry through the mail and it pays to take the time to send a secure package.
If you are gift giving jewelry, a jewelry gift box to fit the piece adds the final touch. The gift box is a much better presentation than just tossing a bracelet or pair of earrings in the bottom of a gift paper bag. The gift box helps to make the gift look more special. There is just an added sense of “excitement” to be handed a beautifully wrapped box rather than a paper bag with some tissue stuffed inside and somewhere among all the tissue is your gift of jewelry. It is more of a “surprise” to find your gift from within a box.
There are specific types of open display boxes for jewelry retailers that can really make the jewelry stand out and eye catching. Necklace trees are a creative way of displaying beautiful necklaces for sale.
Choose the right size box to package sold jewelry. Jewelry boxes are made of a variety of materials such as craft paper boxes, clear top boxes, silver lined and velour-lined. There is just the right size box for every piece of jewelry whether it be a bracelet, a ring, a necklace or pendant. Choosing the right size box and a box made of high quality material can make a huge difference in how your customers feel about you after they have purchased.
Regardless of what kind of jewelry you sell, fashion costume jewelry or high end jewelry, you can use whatever kind of high quality box you want. For example, use a velour-covered metal box for fashion jewelry sales just to add a bit of up-scale to the sale.
Silver, gold, blue, red and many other different foil-like paper boxes with cotton padding in the bottom of the box works well for fashion jewelry or high end jewelry. Add a tiny bow or wrap around bow to your package for more detail. You should, however, always choose the appropriate size to fit the jewelry pieces perfectly.
You can even make your own signature line of boxes in which you package your sales to give your jewelry line a more unique presentation.
If you choose to use paper boxes, be sure you choose high quality paper boxes. If you package your jewelry sales poorly, your merchandise will be viewed as poor quality as well. I know from a first hand experience with the package I received in the mail that was poorly packaged and the jewelry was destroyed due to the poor packaging. My first thought was, “carelessness and poor quality.” Don’t let the same thing happen to you with your jewelry sales.
Purchase jewelry boxes at wholesale for a cost-effective way to add an extra finishing touch for your customers, and if sending through the mail, always remember to wrap in bubble wrap and send in a secure bubble wrapped envelope or box. In the end, you will be glad you spent the extra time and money to do so.
