Let’s Talk Jewelry Store Design—Focus on Art and Accessories |  February 10, 2022 (0 comments)


West Bloomfield, MI--When remodeling or starting a new building construction, clients often ask me about the use of accessories and decorations to impress their customers. I believe that a jewelry store without accessories is a showroom that lacks depth and character. Design and decor play a very important and beneficial role in successful jewelry stores. I always tell my clients that they can bring their showroom to life by adding accessories and decorations in many areas of their store.

As a jewelry store owner, it is pertinent that your individual personality is shown throughout your store. Customers want a unique experience. Using art allows you the opportunity to update your jewelry store every now and then to keep things fresh. For example, see picture below of Occasions Fine Jewelers, Midland, TX, incorporating black and white images of their hometown in a unique, artistic way.

To gain a competitive edge, jewelry stores across the country are increasingly incorporating art into their showrooms. Many of my clients display local artists and sell the art to customers. Whether to create an uplifting atmosphere, or a metaphoric statement, art in the jewelry store business matters.

Here are some easy examples of ways to incorporate art and accessories in your store:

These are just a few ways you can incorporate accessories into your store, but there are hundreds of options. No matter what decorations you choose, be sure you’re using them to express your individual taste. After all, this is your showroom, and it should be an extension of who you are.
