Retail Index finds jewelry sales are up and not down, according to the latest figures from the NRF/Forrester Online Retail Index. The index is produced by the National Retail Federation and Forrester Research Inc. in conjunction with Greenfield Online. "Valentine's Day was a big reason why consumers spent over $17 million more in February on jewelry than in January," said David M. Cooperstein, research director at Forrester.

"The increase was also due to the success of aggressive marketing campaigns from high-end jewelers."

"The Internet as a retail channel remains volatile, but as this channel matures we expect online spending to more closely follow the overall industry trend."
The Index is based on 5,000 responses to an online panel fielded by Greenfield Online during the first 10 business days of each month. The monthly panel is weighted to Forrester Research's Benchmark Panel, which surveyed nearly 90,000 U.S. and Canadian members of a consumer mail panel developed by NPD Group, a market research firm.

Data was weighted to represent the North American population demographically.

Gold and silver jewelry has also become an ecommerce frenzy as precious metals hit an all time high and showed its’ market potential. Furthermore, Gold and silver jewelry are the only items that have risen in value even after the point of sale.

Furthermore, as most jewelers already know: Silver jewelry in particular has been a hot seller amid economy conditions and high gold prices.
For National Jeweler's latest product panel, 81 percent of respondents reported that their silver jewelry sales have trended upwards, and an incredible 90 percent said that their stock of silver jewelry (in dollar terms) is headed in the same direction.

The chief appeal of sterling silver for today's budget-conscious consumers is, not surprisingly, price. For jewelers, the allure of silver is also tied into the profit margins they make on the pieces.

While retailers might be missing out on margins in categories such as loose diamonds, 73 percent of respondents reported that they make margins of 50 percent or higher on silver jewelry. When asked if they thought the popularity of sterling silver would fade as the economy recovers, more than half of those surveyed said no, with a few attributing its staying power to the influence of younger consumers.

"I don't think that silver will fade as a popular choice," one respondent wrote. "The younger generation sees sterling silver as a precious metal." Another predicted silver would become "a staple for the Gen Y consumer."

However, quite a few respondents answered, "Silver's popularity comes and goes, but customers always value gold more. When they can afford it again, they will buy it again."

Yet both gold and silver continue to be a valuable item and this is why jewelry will continue to be a top selling category.
