Jewellery Merchandising

ME100 - Jewellery Merchandising

Merchandising jewellery is both a skill and an art. Packaging, display and placement must be given as much thought and planning as the jewellery itself in order to effectively convey its quality and value. This class combines traditional visual merchandising concepts that apply to physical storefronts as well as branding concepts and catalogue and internet merchandising strategies.


Course Details

Students understand merchandising theory, performing thought experiments to place themselves in the consumer’s frame of mind as they navigate a display. Inventory and security play an important part in jewellery merchandising and students understand retailer concerns and methods to improve customer experience without compromising stock integrity. Students gain experience creating displays and catalogues from their own jewellery portfolios and work with props and showcases as well as digital cameras and computers.
