Where Can I Buy Wheeler Jewelry

I began making jewelry as a little kid. I collected rocks on road trips throughout the US with my dad and used simple stringing techniques with jump rings and other materials. I developed those skills over time into more intricate beadwork, like silk knotting, tassels, and more. People who saw them wanted to buy them, so in my twenties, I started a business on the side selling my creations. (I was working full time doing PR for clean-tech start-ups at the time.) That business grew organically over time into what it is today.

I was going down a different career path in my 20s. I think, in a way, school distracted me from my organic passions in life. I was always making jewelry and that should have been my focus in school, but I went to a liberal arts business college and that wasn't an option. I started going down paths I thought I was supposed to go on. I did learn a lot about the business and marketing side, so I supposed it wasn't a huge waste of time! I was never great at school though. I always learned best by doing, which is how I got to where I am.

It changes, but right now my everyday jewelry look includes the Heart Enamel Studs, a few necklaces layered with the Wrap Bead Necklace, my Custom Signet Ring, and a mix of rings including an Ombre Ring or two. Then I usually add my yellow gold Rolex Daytona, and a few bracelets from the current collection, mixed with some beaded pieces I made when I was younger. I often pile on for every day, but when I dress up, I might pick a few statement pieces instead and let them shine on their own. I am actually getting more into matched sets, which you will see more of from me this year.

As a Paris-based editorial consultant and translator, I have spent my career strategizing and creating content for organizations ranging from start-ups to multinationals. Ex-Condé Nast, I now help luxury brands define their positioning through editorial, and write about lifestyle and culture for international media titles, with a particular interest in independent jewelry design and diversity in the jewelry industry.

Wheeler Manufacturing, the leading jewelry provider for tourist and souvenir retailers, has beendesigning, producing & selling wholesale jewelry since 1946. Through a diverse collection of qualitylines, including Black Hills Gold, and programs designed for customers in the tourism industry.

There are high-end jewelry stores like Tiffany's, where few women shop for themselves. There are the low-end, teenie-bopper stores such as Claire's. But for the average woman who just wants some fashionable bling? It comes from an assortment of places: boutiques, antiques, or just before check-out at a clothing store. No one brand comes to mind.

"We started thinking of pain points," a jewelry-free Yacobovsky told Business Insider. She's surrounded by so much of it now, she sometimes forgets to put it on. "Two big things stuck out. Shoes or handbags are seen as more durable purchases. You can't get away with wearing the same statement necklace everyday. Also, there isn't a go-to retail destination for jewelry. Jewelry is not a destination purchase. It's an afterthought of retail stores."

The pair, who knew nothing about the retail or jewelry businesses, spent their next year at Harvard conducting research and putting together a working prototype of an e-commerce site. They wanted to figure out the supply side of the industry, create a private label for jewelry, and sell fashionable accessories at a price women wouldn't balk at.

They spoke with over 550 jewelry suppliers who produced items for stores such as Anthropologie and Bergdorf Goodman. Of those 550, Yacobovsky and Jain convinced 30 to join the test site. They learned the business on the fly, and would often run home to google foreign terms merchandisers used throughout meetings. "It's all fake-it-'til-you-make-it, right?" Jain said.

If you stop to think about why jewelry is an "afterthought" for most retailers, it seems like it'd be because the margins aren't great. A store can make more selling a pair of $100 jeans than on a $25 ring. But Greycroft Partner's Ellie Wheeler, who is also a BaubleBar board member, says the margins are "fabulous."

"Retailers actually use jewelry as a margin category," Wheeler says. "They use it as an impulse buy and put it by the cash register, and there's often a big mark-up on it, particularly in the fashion-jewelry category."

BaubleBar uses a traditional e-commerce business model. Jain and Yacobovsky purchase jewelry at wholesale prices from manufacturers, then sell it for more online. They constantly monitor how well a product is selling and can tell within minutes if an item will be a hit or a dud. They keep track of the quantity of materials suppliers have in stock, so BaubleBar can push fast-selling products and pump the brakes as needed. They can get hot items turned around in just a few days' time.

"An incredible amount of BaubleBar's traffic is organic, and partnerships help on top of the funnel," says Wheeler. BaubleBar has worked with some of the most followed brands on Pinterest, Honestly WTF, and DKNY. It also partnered with a New York City fundraiser called Raise Cache and clothed all the models in its jewelry (see photo above).

Yacobovsky and Jain have plans to perfect and scale the business. They've mulled over a pre-order model to test which designs will be popular before they buy jewelry from suppliers. They're adding content to purchase pages, because when they show women how to wear the jewelry, they sell more. They've also tested physical retail stores, because shoppers who hold their products become more loyal customers than those who find BaubleBar online first. They haven't over-spent on customer acquisition either. Of BaubleBar's repeat purchasers, 70% shop another three or four times, and over 50% shop five times or more.

Their best customer has spent more on BaubleBar jewelry than some of its 50 employees make, having purchased over 500 items. Yacobovsky and Jain are also buffing up their customized jewelry business, which has better margins than a statement necklace.

An increasing trend towards online shopping began to erode revenues and profits in the 2010s. A 4% dip in sales for the June 30, 2014, quarter, marked the 10th quarter in a row where Best Buy's sales had declined. The company, in announcing the result, said it was focusing more on digital media in its marketing, moving away from newspaper, magazine, and television advertising.[79]

Best Buy sells consumer electronics and a variety of related merchandise, including software, video games, music, mobile phones, digital cameras, car stereos, and video cameras, in addition to home appliances (washing machines, dryers, and refrigerators), in a noncommissioned sales environment.[2] Under the Geek Squad brand, Best Buy offers computer repair, warranty service, and accidental service plans.[2] Best Buy provides an online community forum for members, where consumers can discuss product experiences, ask questions, and get answers from other members or retail product experts.[86]
