Jewelry is a tried and true niche for anyone interested in working from home! With the winter holidays coming up---including Valentine’s Day which is a major jewelry gift giving event---you may find it extremely appealing to boost your profits with seasonal holiday dropship jewelry sales.
Here are some interesting (and heartening) statistics from last February, part from the JA report; which is the resource for the professional jewelry industry, and part from IDEX:
- Total U.S. jewelry and watch sales were a record $68.3 billion in 2011, a gain of 11 percent over 2010, based on preliminary data from the U.S. government.
- This was well ahead of 2010’s $61.5 billion, and substantially ahead of the prior record year – 2007 – when U.S. jewelry and watch sales were $65.3 billion, as the graph below illustrates.
According to IDEX, total jewelry sales rose by 10.8 percent to $59.2 billion in 2011, while total watch sales rose by 12.1 percent to $9.1 billion. Watch sales were 13 percent of total industry sales, stable with the prior couple of years.
The total industry sales gain was the first double-digit increase since the mid-1980s, when the industry posted several years of sales gains in the low-to-mid teen range.
One thing that research brought to light regarding 2011 jewelry sales is that fashion jewelry and gold led the sales and were key sellers on both e-tail and retail store shelves.
Fashion Jewelry vs. Fine Jewelry
Which one is best for dropship jewelry sales? Fashion jewelry or fine jewelry?
That more or less boils down to a matter of choice.
Fashion jewelry is a hot performer, but so is high end fine jewelry. Whichever you choose, you’re assured of a huge demand and a diverse, global target market.
Actually, there is no need to make a choice between one or the other for your dropship jewelry sales online, as you can sell both if that suits your agenda!
