Finding Inspiration: Piece by Piece™ and Petite Pavé

petite pavé dangles

Where do you keep findings in your store? Traditionally, findings are kept in the back of the store and not something you’d show to a customer. But what if findings help you tell the full story? 

As the building blocks of jewelry, findings are the perfect pieces you can use to sell customization. You can show your customers how to add a personal touch with jewelry made just for them using findings. Whether you have a bench jeweler or not, we make it easy to merchandise custom jewelry using findings with our popular selling systems. 

Finding Inspiration is a campaign to inspire jewelers and artisans in our industry. Every day, we are inspired by the creativity of our customers. Today, we hope to inspire YOU to leverage findings as merchandise worthy of being placed front and center in your showroom. 

Piece by Piece Selling System 

Piece by Piece, Stuller’s interactive settings & shanks ring builder, allows the customer to mix and match popular setting and shank styles for a hands-on custom jewelry-making experience. We’ve recently expanded Piece by Piece to include four new fancy shape carat run-ups and two new shank modules. In total, your customers can create rings using 24 shanks and 60 settings ranging in various shapes and sizes. 

Display in high traffic areas where customers will instantly notice and want to interact. Placing bridal jewelry near your Piece by Piece selling system is a great way to encourage your customers to build their own engagement ring. Want to save time or don’t have a bench jeweler? We can assemble the pieces together by adding a head to your desired shank.

Finding Inspiration: Personalization With Petite Pavé

At Stuller, we are looking forward to spending this month celebrating love with our customers. Another busy holiday for jewelers, Valentine’s Day provides excellent opportunities for you to help your customers find unique pieces that help them express themselves or create a meaningful gift for someone special. The best pieces are those that are one-of-a-kind, but the process to make unique pieces does not have to be time consuming or complex.

Finding Inspiration is a campaign to inspire the designer in every jeweler. Using findings that you see every day, you can create the most beautiful pieces that are personalized for your customer. Have you heard of our petite pavé dangle collection? This assortment of dangles showcases personalization with letters and numbers, family and friendship with birthstones, and individuality with a variety of symbols. Combine these components with earring backs, hoops, wires, chains, and other findings to create a piece they’ll never forget.

Need help finding your own inspiration? We have you covered with four different ways to use petite pave dangles to create unique pieces of personalized jewelry.

Upgrade a Simple Hoop

A simple endless hoop (625) is a beautiful statement by itself but take it a step further by adding a personal flare. Easily slip on a dangle, such as an adorable bee dangle (2000939), and you have a new statement that tells a story. Be sure to show your customers how effortless it is to slide on new dangles to change up the look.

Create a Unique Drop Earring

As seen in our Valentine’s Day Gift Guide, you can add any petite pave dangle – such as a simple heart dangle (2000942) – to an ear wire (2000701) and suddenly you have a distinct new drop earring customized just for your customer.

Tell a Story With a Personalized Necklace

Using a split ring (OV2), switch out letter dangles (2000931) with ease on our new threader chain (CH1104) to make the perfect customized necklace. With a set of dangles, customers can tell a new story every day by exchanging the dangle on the chain.

Think Outside the Box With Stopper Beads

Another way to easily add dangles to a chain is by getting creative and using our new stopper beads as a bail (2001147). They keep things fresh and make individual necklace. For example, combine a birthstone dangle (2000898), a letter dangle (2000931), and a lotus flower dangle (2001057) to create an intriguing and personal story with meaning for your customer.

Save the Day With Petite Pavé

As you can see, there are endless options when creating simple, yet meaningful pieces with the petite pave dangle collection. Leveraging this collection is a great way to get repeat customers that are looking to expand their own assortment as well as helps you build a relationship with your customer. Make sure to show your customer just how easy it is to create multiple looks with just a few components and impress them with your sense of style.

Finding Inspiration Campaign

Over the years, we have seen more of our customers use our findings to build product unique to their personal brand. As a result, over the last year, we have built more product that speaks to current trends. We are inspired by your vision and want to share that inspiration.

The Finding Inspiration Campaign seeks to inspire the inner designer in every jeweler. Every month for the next year, we plan on sharing behind the scenes looks at the product we develop and highlight practical applications for using Stuller’s findings to build your brand of finished jewelry.

For Your Inspiration

We are kicking off our inaugural Finding Inspiration feature with a stunning ring made with a pear-shaped, solid base setting (2000625) combined with an asymmetrical shank (SH835, SH831, SH841).

The setting is the first fancy shape solid base setting introduced to our findings line. It was developed to address the increased popularity of Stuller’s round-shape solid base setting assortment. We have also noticed our customers love our v-end settings, so we made sure to incorporate that element into the end prong. Solid base settings are a great go-to finding as they are easy to assemble to other various components. This item has been made available in seven different sizes ranging from 3x2mm to 9x6mm.

The shank is a part of our asymmetrical shank collection that facilitate the easy assembly of trend-worthy looks. It gives the jeweler the ability to utilize Stuller’s findings settings and shanks assortment to design anything from a modern engagement ring to an updated bypass look.

New. Trendy. Affordable. And Full of Diamonds!

petite pavé dangles

When is very small something BIG? We couldn’t be more excited than to introduce our new Petite Pavé Dangle Collection.

What are petite pavé dangles?

They’re sparkly and dainty dangles — all 6mm or less — set with diamonds (and some with gemstones). Customers can add them to chains, earring hoops, bracelets, and any other creative ideas that delight.

And they are irresistible not only because of their petite perfection but also because they have an average petite price point of $60. What’s more, all dangles come in the three most popular 14K color options: white, yellow, and rose.

Slide dangles onto our endless hoops for an easy customized look.

But how do you properly display such tiny beauties? They could get lost in a case. To keep them together and show them to their best advantage, we designed a new Magnetic Charm & Dangle Display that goes so perfectly with our dangles. It’s easy to set up and, once in your case, lets the petite pavé dangles practically sell themselves!

By incorporating the magnetic feature in our new charm and dangle display, you have endless customization options to create the display look you want. As they sell, you can easily adjust the arrangement until your reorders arrive.

We’ve also curated three assortments that pair perfectly with the displays. Designed to inspire multiple sales — first and last initials, month and day of a special event — these assortments offer endless possibilities:

LETTERS AND NUMERALS
BIRTHSTONES
SYMBOLS

You’ll love them all! And when it comes to closing sales, each of these petite wonders performs like a dynamo.
