Which Cleaner Does What?
When I talk to jewelers, there is a growing understanding of the importance of offering their customers products for at-home jewelry care. Your customers are sophisticated and recognize that their jewelry purchases represent significant investment that needs to be cared for appropriately. In addition, they are well versed in the need to use different cleaning products for different tasks. They purchase stainless steel cleaner for their appliances. They purchase hardwood cleaner for their floors. And they want to purchase jewelry cleaner for their precious jewelry.
Offering jewelry care products that are safe and effective for the jewelry you carry allows you to meet this need, while offering you the opportunity to educate your customers on safe, routine home cleaning of their purchase.
Here is a quick outline of the different products you can offer to your customers to clean all the jewelry in their wardrobe:
