From the editor

All that glitters

Jewellery, in whatever iteration, is always a great seller. We see it time and time again. Whether you’re an accessories boutique with a vast array of different jewellery options, or you are predominately focused on gifts and are thinking about branching out into offering necklaces, rings and bracelets in order to entice the pick-up consumer, jewellery is a sure-fire sales hit.

This issue we have two features looking at different jewellery trends. Celestial styles, inspired by the stars, are definitely en vogue right now, with the fashion-forward consumer loving the cosmos-inspired jewellery items. Meanwhile gold items are classic yet fashionable, traditional yet stylish, and whimsical yet strong – ticking every box and more.

Of course, that’s not all we’re covering this issue. We throw the spotlight on the best handbags and backpacks to market, as well as our round-up of rings and watches. Focusing on shows, we have in-depth previews of Pure x JATC and Scoop – two great events that will help refine your in-store offering and help guide you on what’s hot in the industry right now.

And finally, in our op-ed blog I look at while it’s important to support advocacy days such as International Women’s Day and Pride month, coming up in June, it’s imperative that you are consistent, authentic and intentional with your marketing all-year round in order to highlight your genuine support for these important causes.

Enjoy the issue!

Help in a crisis

Employees and workforces across the UK are feeling the strain of the cost of-living, with the Office for National Statistics (ONS) finding that nearly half of households throughout the country have experienced their living costs increasing compared to the previous month. Not only can this have a huge impact on expenses for commuting but can have a significant knock-on effect on mental health and morale. This is where employers and businesses can support their workforces during these difficult times to help keep morale and well-being boosted, as well as providing options that can help relieve some of the financial pressure that they're under. Before providing solutions to the issue, it's important to understand the reality of this crisis and how the ripple effects impact millions of workers in the UK. The rise of consumer goods and services by 9.6 percent in October 2022 and the inflation rate staying at 4.2 percent exiting December 2023 means that workers are forced to reevaluate how they manage their money and the resources available.
