Jewelry is a classic “Made in China ” product as the assembly requires a good amount of labor; this means that the reduced cost of labor allows lower expenses. While the jewelry market may seem saturated, it is still possible to find a niche to differentiate yourself from the competition and make a good profit.
The purpose of this article is to illustrate the steps required to choose china jewelry. If you usually read our blog you already know how we think: before proceeding to contact suppliers you must know what you are looking for. The jewelry industry is no exception: the approach you choose will depend on the type of jewelry you intend to import. First you will have to decide if you want to import custom jewelry or not. Here are the most important factors to consider when it comes to personalization:
Jewelry based on components you have personally designed
While it is certainly possible to create custom pendants and other types of components, each custom component requires a new injection molding machine . This means that a necklace made up of fifteen custom pieces will require fifteen different machines.
Buying a new injection molding machine is not a problem, but you will have to consider a cost of at least 500$ for each machine. If you multiply the price for each custom component you intend to create, you understand that this is not a suitable option for those who intend to import starting from limited resources and capital .
It is therefore important to reduce the custom components to a minimum. In the following section I will explain how you can get a “unique” product without having to invest large sums of money in the purchase of molding machinery.
Jewelry based on existing components
This strategy consists of selecting components that are already in production (i.e. the supplier already has the injection molding machinery to produce them and you will not have to buy new ones) and combine them in order to create a one-of-a-kind final product. This method works because it minimizes the initial investment and has already been used successfully by some of our clients.
Choice of materials
Before starting you will need to decide what type of design and materials to use. Most of the Chinese jewelry suppliers have focused on “classic” jewelry and some specific materials such as plastic or stainless steel. Here are the most common specs you will need to consider:
1.) Materials: stainless steel, metal alloys, plastics, leather, pearls, precious metals, etc.
2.) Design: classic style jewelry, plastic jewelry, ethnic jewelry, etc.
4.) Certification Standard: RoHS, Nickel Free, Lead Free, etc.
Personal temperament and taste can be improved by wearing jewelry, and it is also healthy for the body! Since ancient times, everyone has had a love for beauty, especially in the 21st century where many accessories are gathered, you can’t stop loving beauty. There are many female friends who like to wear Chinese jewelry often.
