It cannot be denied about negative changes that the world is going through in the past two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine.  However, the jewelry market has a lucky.  When people can't travel, they find other ways to spend money with gifts and valuable jewelry.

Jewelry designers and brands has proved the ability to recover despite the limitations of the lockdown.  They use technology to stay in touch with customers via social media to showcase new designs, and before the face-to-face meetings take place, they use Zoomm to launch the new collection which was a way to maintain dialogue, interact with customers more than sales.

At least for VIP customers, when precious items can be delivered to their homes for them to try in private.  There could be a conversion factor if customers can try on jewelry in their dressing rooms, a move that has led many experts in the industry to believe that the future of high jewelry is privacy and selectivity. 

A recent report from Shanghai shows that luxury brands have gotten creative by sending gourmet meals and food parcels to customers especially when the city is closed to maintain relationships.  In the last few years, the focus on high-end jewelry and watches has been increasingly tilted towards Asia especially Chinese buyers.  According to global management and consultant McKinsey & Company, the region represents 45% of total luxury sales by brands.  Before the restrictions in Shanghai and Beijing, Cartier and a number of firms held lavish product launches and exhibitions in China instead of Paris.  Similarly, Chanel will launch a high-end jewelry collection inspired by 1932 designs later this month in Taiwan, not in Paris.

The pandemic has allowed jewelry brands to innovate and offer unique customer experiences.  Bulgari's online platform has become the number 1 sales channel globally, both in person and online, increasing by more than 100%.  In China, this may depend on the localization of the brand.

This result will help boost Bulgari's high-end jewelry business in 2021, exceeding even the brand's own expectations.  The highlight is the success of the Magnifica collection with 350 items launched last June in Milan, then London.  This encourages Bulgari to continue investing in its high-end jewelry sets.

In 2019, high-end jewelry sales were estimated at US$280 billion by McKinsey & Company, but due to the global pandemic, business activity has declined by 10-15% due to retail store closures during this period.  Some brands have been slow to move into the digital realm, but the pandemic has fundamentally reset expectations for both buyers and sellers.

Jewelry makers quickly entered a new world where terms like metaverse and NFT became commonplace.  However, the metaverse is a huge space and luxury brands are still trying to understand and work within it.  The NFT is potentially a useful tool for proving the authenticity and ownership of luxury items as high-end jewelry, watches, artworks or even musical instruments.  This is particularly welcome at a time when companies are being challenged by customers in establishing transparency and traceability in their gem supply chains.

Proof of authenticity will ultimately benefit customers who love high-end jewelry with diamond necklaces, ruby ​​earrings, emerald bracelets and the like.  Because the ambition is that blockchain technology will eventually provide a reliable digital record of the gem's journey from producer to retailer and then to customer.

Despite the pandemic, Graff, with 50 stores worldwide, reported nearly $473.6 million in sales in 2020. Richemont's prestigious brands Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels and Buccellati helped to make it possible.  The luxury industry will increase profits in the jewelry sector from $7.73 billion in 2020 to $7.99 in 2021 in which sales in Asia-Pacific and especially China  is the major contributor.

Van Cleef & Arpels opened a bunch of new stores in China between 2020 and 2021, with more to come this year.  It will also renovate its flagship store in Hong Kong.

As the world slowly emerges from the pandemic, there is another potential challenge for luxury jewelry brands: Western sanctions on Russian diamonds, which account for a third of the world's supply.  These measures will not have an immediate impact as many places already have stock of gems but no diamonds currently being mined that could appear in future designs, until the sanctions are lifted.

WILL LUXURY BUYERS PAY MORE FOR DIGITAL PRODUCTS THAN PHYSICAL PRODUCTS?

Luxury must be exclusive while Digital makes products, information and knowledge more accessible.  Based on the above definition, Digital would seem to be just a channel or, at best, an add-on and amplification of a product or experience. However, add-ons can deliver significant value or reach entirely new groups of customers.  Tiffany's engagement ring finder app is a case in point: it allows users to try on their engagement rings using augmented reality in the app before entering a real store.  Louis Vuitton has collections of accessories that League of Legends players can purchase online and then collect in stores.  Game company Epic Games has partnered with luxury brands as Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton.
