Mobile Commerce Views From A UK Jewellery Wholesaler

Jewellery Wholesalers

As any Jeweller in the UK knows high street sales are being impacted by the growth of eCommerce. Many UK Jewellery chains and Independent Jewellers have taken the plunge and created an online presence, and the larger chains can be seen to be advertising heavily online.

As a leading UK Jewellery Wholesaler our focus is supporting Independent Jewellers, and helping them compete with the major Jewellery Chains, by providing fast access to the latest fashions, quality and keen pricing. Service, Quality and Value are the obvious things you’d expect from a Jewellery Wholesaler but increasingly we are also providing advice on eCommerce.

For an Independent Jeweller entering the world of eCommerce can be expensive and time consuming, taking many Jewellers outside of their comfort zone. Yet it doesn’t have to be either expensive or time consuming. Technology markets move quickly and for an SME a bespoke website build no longer makes sense, it’s time consuming plus costly, and can be expensive to maintain. Low cost, high quality, ‘off the peg’ store solutions are now available from multiple large vendors, which can be customised to meet the design style of the store, and costs can be less than £30 per month, with no upfront build costs. The reason why we feel it’s important to consider using a store vendor, rather than a web designer, is that technology and markets are evolving quickly and the ‘off the peg’ stores invest in evolving to keep pace with the market. The statistics below, from Coupofy, shows the rapid emergence of Mobile Commerce as a key part of the online buyers behaviour. Building an online store that keeps pace with Mobile Commerce trends has hence become incredibly important, a standard website that displays perfectly on PC is no longer enough, either mobile specific sites or mobile site rendering and features are necessary.

  • Globally Mobile Commerce is expected to grow by 31% in 2017, versus 15% growth for eCommerce
  • In 2015 the UK had the second highest global Mobile Commerce growth rate at 45%
  • In terms of Mobile Commerce order value Jewellery was 6th largest with an average basket size of $115

It is important to note that mobile covers not only mobile phones, but also tablets and phablets.

At Cultured UK we take a keen interest in the latest Jewellery Fashion trends, and in particular Pearl Jewellery featuring on the catwalks. A recent article in Jeweller Magazine highlighted the Hottest 2016 Pearl Jewellery Trends and it was great to see designers and consumers embracing different ways to wear pearls.

Whilst historically Pearls have been seen as a classic, timeless and elegant gem the new uses on the catwalk by leading designers is pushing pearls toward the contemporary and avant garde.

Double Pearl EarringKnotted strands and bold colours are predicted to be a great hit in 2016, plus the organic shape of baroque pearls is becoming increasingly popular.

Wholesale Marcasite Jewellery – New Range from Cultured UK

Marcasite humming bird

 

Jewellery has been made from Marcasite for over 2,000 years, and was a frequently used gemstone in Ancient Greece. In more recent times popularity grew in the Victorian Era, with small pieces of Marcasite inlaid into Silver Jewellery to create beautiful Art Nouveau pieces.

The recent popularity of Art Nouveau Jewellery designs has seen a resurgence in the use of Marcasite, long renowned for its gleam / sparkle (it was a common replacement for Diamonds in 18th Century Switzerland, when Diamonds were banned from public display).

ES3788 - Pearl & marcasite drop earrings

Earlier this year we trialed wholesaling some Pearl & Marcasite Jewellery and it proved so popular that we’ve decided to expand our range to include Sterling Silver & Marcasite Jewellery.

Set - Marcasite Feathers

 

As wholesalers we are constantly on the look out for new trends and fashions, plus quality jewellery designs. View our full Marcasite Range on the Cultured UK Website , or call us on 0845 459 0181 to set up an appointment.

Great News For Independent Jewellers Looking To Capitalise On Christmas Trade

Cultured UK logo

 

As UK Jewellery Wholesalers focussed upon supporting independent jewellers we are heartened by survey results published in Professional Jeweller today.

The key points to note were:

  • 79% of consumers prefer shopping on the high street, vs online, for Costume Jewellery (and we can only presume this will increase for Fine Jewellery)
  • 28% favour shopping in independent retailers
  • 92% cite emotion (based upon appearance) as the key purchase driver

The above results are good news as they highlight that cannibalisation of retail jewellery sales by eCommerce remains limited, plus that the discount focussed (pile it high sell it cheap) major chains are on the wrong track vis a vis customer needs, luxury goods are always going to be more about image and emotion rather than price.

Independent Jewellers are an important part of the high street, providing high levels of service, knowledge and unique product offerings, and long may this continue.

Here at Cultured UK our aim is to help Independent Jewellers compete with the chains, we keep high volume lines keenly priced and spend a lot of our time monitoring jewellery and fashion trends, then seeking unique new pearl jewellery designs with the aim of keep our pearl jewellery wholesale customers ahead of the pack.
