Jewellery headlines that rocked 10 years ago

Time flies, huh? It’s interesting how time can change people’s perspective on various issues; what was important yesterday is not so important today.

This became apparent following some industry research conducted by Jeweller that showed how few retailers these days considered cheap imports to be a threat to independent jewellery businesses. Jewellery chain stores, which five to 10 years ago were the big bogeyman, also didn’t rank highly as a threat in the industry survey.

The results prompted a review of our magazine archives to see what was making the news 10 years ago. It made for such interesting reading and analysis that it was decided a monthly column called ‘10 years ago’ would be created.

The Jeweller team has always viewed the publication as being a journal of record for the Australian and New Zealand jewellery industries and therefore each month we will provide a snapshot of the major news stories that were published in the same month one decade earlier.

Apart from being an entertaining read – bringing back memories for many jewellers and suppliers – it might allow readers to judge whether things have changed and/or whether history really does repeat itself.
