Monthly Overview














Understanding the changing jewellery market

Dramatic changes have been taking place within the industry that have effectively altered the retail game forever.

With even more change likely to occur over the next 12 months, it’s time for jewellers to address these challenges head on.

Jeweller’s December issue – which is out now – has multiple in-depth reports from industry heavy hitters on how to better understand these changes and thrive during this uncertain period.

First up is diamond maverick Martin Rapaport, who is never short of words when it comes to diamonds. This month, Rapaport goes one-on-one with Jeweller to discuss the current state of the international diamond market.

All retailers want to provide a ‘great customer experience’ but how many deliver on it? Pandora’s David Allen outlines what retailers need to do in order to achieve the holy grail of retail.

Colin Pocklington also explains how to adapt to the ‘new normal’ retail environment and what to focus on during a downturn.

Finally, Jeweller has travelled the globe and collated stores with some seriously impressive in-store designs. This may very well be the perfect inspiration fodder for retailers wanting a fresh start come 2018.

The last 2017 issue of Australia and New Zealand’s #1 jewellery industry magazine not only aims to entertain and educate, but also inspire retailers to achieve success in 2018 and beyond. See below for more details.
