Sustainability and Reinvention - how the Jewellery Sector can Respond 

Sustainability has become a big topic within the fashion industry – and beyond. Consumers and governments alike are putting pressure on businesses to take responsibility for their footprint. Rather than seeing this as a hindrance, jewellery brands (of all sizes) have an opportunity to reassess, innovate and reinvent – and futureproof your businesses in the process.

 

Setting the scene with insight into the biggest market shifts and cultural drivers impacting the jewellery industry – with sustainability being a core issue – this discussion will dive into:

 

  • Sustainability: Product innovation; New alternatives as precious materials reserves deplete; Brand ethics – ethical responsibility, transparency and circular ways of designing and producing product

 

  • Reinvention: Burgeoning categories such as affordable (demi-fine) jewellery are having real cut-through with consumers. Tapping into wider market shifts and exploring new business models can open up new opportunities for your brand.
