Over the years, jewelry has always been perceived as an investment. It is something that you’d only pull out for an occasion. Today, it’s as much a statement as it is an investment. It could be your Cartier love bracelet, an art deco ring or a modern molten gold piece. Your jewelry says a lot about your personal style.
Several boutique brands are now leading this space with their niche, everyday designs. Recent reports suggests that, over the next 3 years, the jewelry segment is expected to grow at a rate of 5-6% per year. This growth directly attributed to the growing Gen Z and millennial population. This population has disposable incomes, a desire for meaningful, individualistic products that resonate with their lifestyle. They have the ability to appreciate newly minted designers and brands.
