Gleaming white metals forge full steam ahead

This season, fresh, crisp designs and technical innovations are ensuring white metals maintain their shine.

White metals have been hot property in the bridal and fashion categories for years; however, a bevy of technical innovations are keeping these cool, luminous alloys on point.

Each member of the white metals family brings different attributes and benefits and Jeweller’s November issue – which has now been mailed – provides insight on how to select the right one for the right customer.

It will be a white-hot summer once jewellers master this.

Speaking of a white-hot summer, Christmas is just around the corner. This month’s issue outlines the retail strategies that can help make this festive season one of the most successful – and merry – yet.

The number of marriage proposals also typically spike at this time of year. Jeweller’s engagement ring spotlight seeks advice on the trends and opportunities currently dominating the market.

Businesses often cut costs in tough times but as Ian Altman reports, it’s crucial to consider the effects of such behaviour upon customers and staff. Altman discusses the good, the bad and the ugly of cost cutting.

There’s a whole lot more in Australia and New Zealand’s #1 jewellery industry magazine, including plenty of useful advice that could help to improve sales and profitability. See below for more details.
