TRENDS AND PROSPECTS FOR JEWELLERY MARKET IN SWEDEN

Report by Euromonitor International

The extreme increase in the price of gold after the financial crisis in 2008 had a negative impact on volume sales of fine jewellery.

In 2013 the price of gold began to drop, although it remained far over the price of gold in 2008.

TRENDS AND PROSPECTS FOR JEWELLERY MARKET IN GERMANY

Report by Euromonitor International

In 2013, jewellery recorded a positive performance. In economic uncertainty, with considerably feeble interest rate repayments and the risk of inflation, German consumers predominately sought for monetary security. Real jewellery benefited from these conditions in 2013, as many consumers perceive these items as the safest investment. Costume jewellery experienced stable demand due to the success of fashion accessories, which was stimulated by major retailers who had teamed up with fashion designers to create accessory lines. For example, H&M introduced in collaboration with Anna Della Russo a new collection, which resonated well amongst the female target audience in Germany.
