Valentine’s Day jewellery deals set to seduce

Although the Christmas trading period is over, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, providing jewellery retailers with another opportunity to woo customers.

Valentine’s Day might be a relatively short trading period, but it doesn’t mean retailers should dismiss the chance to make additional sales.

Colin Pocklington, managing director for Nationwide Jewellers buying group – which represents more than 500 member stores across Australia and New Zealand – said it was important for jewellers to leverage any fanfare surrounding the event with promotions such as window displays.

Carson Webb, general manager of Showcase Jewellers, which has more than 250 member stores, added that retailers – especially those that carry fashion brands – should “always embrace every opportunity to ‘romance’ consumers”.

“There is no doubt that with our world more closely connected these days through social media and global brands, [Valentine’s Day] does have a stronger presence than, say, 10 years ago,” he said.

One retailer that is making the most of this digital integration is Tiffany & Co. Its Concierge of Love global marketing campaign encourages consumers to connect with the brand through social media platforms such as Twitter. Twitter users can request gifting advice from the ‘concierge of love’ via the #vdaytips hashtag, and share brief, romantic notes using #lovein6words.

Tiffany & Co’s website also incorporates ‘Drop a Hint’ buttons that will email the recipient a link to the desired piece of jewellery, as well as offering Valentine’s Day date venue suggestions and gift ideas.

Cartier has also launched a campaign ahead of Valentine’s Day, which involves a six-minute video featuring various engagement rings. The jeweller’s website allows consumers to learn more about the individual rings presented in the video and browse suggested men’s and women’s Valentine’s Day gifts.

Valentine’s Day promotions are not limited to global luxury brands, though. Local jewellery suppliers are also keen to help storeowners boost Valentine’s Day sales. Jeweller has listed a range of offers below designed to help retailers take advantage of the romantic occasion.
