There is a new trend in jewelry design: blackened jewelry. (Did black ever really go out of style?) According to Jewelry Information Center "blackened precious metals create fresh unpretentious-looking jewelry for both men and women."
Black has been a color, not only in jewelry, but in fashion in general, that denotes "class." Do you carry designers such as Cathy Waterman, Arman Jewelry or Arunashi?
Here are some great sales opportunities for blackened jewelry:
• Autumn is a great time for weddings. Run a special on blackened costume jewelry for the wedding party.
• If you do jewelry repair or cleaning, you can advertise in-house blackened jewelry. Offer a special discount to take old, unwanted jewelry, whether silver or gold, and blacken it to "spruce it up."
Offering this classy, new trend has the potential to keep your store in the black this holiday season!
