The jewellery robbery epidemic and the race to stop it

An escalation in the frequency and force of armed robberies is a real concern for retailers. What strategies can be employed to keep jewellery businesses out of the firing line?

The figures are in and they’re troubling; Victoria’s jewellery industry is dealing with an unprecedented surge in armed robberies.

Jeweller’s bumper September issue – out now – investigates the current robbery epidemic and details the steps retailers can take to help ensure staff and storefronts are kept free from harm.

Speaking of keeping safe, this month’s issue also outlines what retailers can do to gain the best return when preparing their businesses for sale. 

On a lighter note, September Jeweller collates the industry highlights of retailers from across the country. Funny, heart-warming and inspiring, it is a great reminder that the industry is not all doom and gloom!

It’s arguably Australia’s most iconic trophy but what actually goes into creating the Melbourne Cup? This year’s Emirates Melbourne Cup, which is valued at more than $200,000, was mined, refined, fabricated and constructed in Australia and Jeweller has the low-down on how it got from A to B.
