of Jewelry & Gemstones
By Sam Serio

The business of jewelry is one of the most fun, exciting and profitable businesses that exist. The demand for jewelry by consumers is unrelenting and consistently growing. Like any other business worth pursuing by a new-comer; the jewelry business requires research, ongoing education, focus and persistence. Fear not, the rewards for this effort can be well-worth the investment of time and energy making jewelry one of the best home-based business opportunities available.

The world of jewelry is vast and can be overwhelming. It is imperative that the prospective jewelry entrepreneur narrow down to a specific area in which to concentrate there marketing efforts. In other words, you must avoid the temptation to spread-out in several directions. Rather, you should become an expert, a specialist. The ideal is to find a niche within a niche. Stake your claim and mine that pocket deep and hard. For example, sterling silver cat jewelry ,14 KT. gold Celtic jewelry, wire-wrapped birthstone jewelry etc.

Selecting your Approach

After the budding jewelry entrepeneur has settled on their niche, they must decide which business model makes the most sense to them. The following represent five basic strategies that one might follow:

Not all wholesalers are equal. In fact, many so-called wholesalers are not really wholesalers at all and prey on the unsophisticated. Applied knowledge is key here. An excellent place to start is Asia-Wholesale-Jewelry.com.

  2. Import directly from manufacturer and sell wholesale. This strategy is not the best for beginners, but if you have ties and are comfortable with a country like India, Thailand, Mexico and others. This can be a lucrative approach. Start small and learn the ropes before you grow. A safe way to embark on this strategy can be found at Asia-Wholesale-Jewelry.com.

  3. Become an affiliate for an existing web-based jewelry company. This strategy is excellent for beginners, as it requires no inventory and you use the company's web-site. Also, they handle the product fulfillment and shipping. This is a great, low-risk way to get started. Try these links: WireSculpture.com, JustGemstones.com, OrientalPearls.net.

  4. Join a jewelry MLM – There are some advantages here and some individuals enjoy this type of marketing, again, do your due-diligence before you jump-in.

  5. Make and sell your own jewelry – If you have the talent and the time, this path can be very rewarding. One tip, unless you want to be a starving artist; find out what type of handcrafted jewelry consumers will actually buy and produce jewelry for that market.
