Aussie jewellery brands lead the way

In an era where international jewellery brands are hungry for expansion, local suppliers are being forced to step up and provide retailers with a true blue Aussie offering.

Astute jewellers know that success in the modern-day retail environment requires more than simply stocking product.

Consumers often prefer branded products that represent certain emotions, images and lifestyles.

High-profile overseas companies undoubtedly have this branding formula down pat but one should never underestimate the prowess and flair of suppliers from the land Down Under.

Jeweller’s bumper 28-page Australian Brands supplement takes a comprehensive look at how retailers can forge ahead in this competitive environment by leveraging the power of Aussie brands.

But who are they and what makes them Australian? How can Aussie brands offer retailers a point of difference from the big international players? All is revealed in March Jeweller.

This month’s issue also includes an exclusive preview of the hottest new products set to launch at the JAA Australian Jewellery Fair at the Gold Coast.

What’s more, jewellery valuer Megan Austin sets the record straight on a number of valuation myths. Jewellery valuation is often a hotly contested topic fuelled by many misunderstandings, so this is something readers won’t want to miss.

There's a whole lot more in March Jeweller, including plenty of useful advice that could help to improve sales and profitability.
