5 Top Custom Jewelry Packaging Trends

Whether you sell your products online, in stores, or both, your jewelry’s packaging plays a critical role in supporting your business. It presents an invaluable opportunity to make a lasting, positive impression, build brand awareness, and stand out from your competition.

From the product’s case to the shopping bag the consumer receives at the point of sale, each part of your jewelry’s packaging can add to (or detract from) the consumer experience. While high-quality materials and on-brand design are essential parts of your packaging, there are specific ways you can help your custom jewelry packaging stand out even more.

 

Eco-Friendly Packaging

Consumer demand has recently taken a turn toward sustainable packaging solutions — a trend that brands have been quick to follow. With the right service provider, you can make strides toward sustainability without sacrificing style.

Construct your packaging from environmentally conscious or recycled materials, or swap parts of your standard packaging for eco-friendly alternatives, including:

  • Recyclable paper bags and handles, and nonwoven plastic materials
  • 100% biodegradable, compostable plastic and paper
  • Plant-based options
  • Washable paper
  • Paper and plastic sourced from recycled content
  • Cork, sustainably sourced wood, or rPET
  • Fairtrade certified cotton and BCI certified cotton substrates
  • Water-based or alternative ink, natural glue, and more

A manufacturer specializing in eco-friendly, innovative packaging will help you create the result you are looking for while reducing your carbon footprint. Choose a service provider that adheres to sustainable manufacturing best practices to save resources in all stages of production.

At Edge2Edge, our environmentally friendly capabilities offer more options for sustainable packaging solutions. We source from locations using renewable power, implementing waste-reduction practices, and partnering with local manufacturers to limit carbon emissions. In addition, we have supply chain partners who are SA8000 Standard certified by Social Accountability International (SAI) to ensure no child labor and safe, healthy working environments.

Reusable and Gift-Ready Packaging

Choose gift-like, multi-purpose packaging to get more eyes on your brand. Create reusable cloth shopping totes or drawstring bags, high-quality jewelry pouches, durable branded boxes, and more. Use sturdy materials such as nylon, cotton, polyester, vinyl, hemp, jute, PVC, burlap, nonwoven plastic materials, and more so that consumers can repurpose your packaging for everyday use.

  • Incorporate modern, branded designs and detailed finishing touches that make your consumer feel like they are opening a gift when they purchase your products.
  • Include plush casings or gift-ready boxes to present your products stylishly.
  • Wrap your products in branded jewelry pouches that consumers can use to store their jewelry.
  • Add a zipper, magnetic closure, or resealable closure to your bags for increased convenience.

Unconventional Features

While your jewelry is the star of the show, its packaging is often the first thing a consumer sees. Push the envelope by going beyond traditional packaging methods:

  • Grab your consumer’s attention with intriguing patterns, bright colors, and bold designs.
  • Add luxurious flair with foil stamping, rotogravure printing, debossing, or embossing.
  • Incorporate die-cut windows to showcase your jewelry.
  • Use matte, satin, or glossy varnish to create a unique texture.
  • Stand out with different materials such as wood, velvet, suede, glass, cotton, cork, or leather.

Try structural designs that combine form and function. Design a keepsake or mirrored box for consumers to reuse for storage. Create a bag and box combination for increased convenience and less waste. Give consumers packaging that doubles as a stand or display so that they can showcase their jewelry on their dresser.

While non-traditional features and techniques can increase the cost of your packaging project, it is a worthwhile investment that can separate you from your competition.

Branded Mailers

The rising trend of eCommerce in the jewelry industry is making the marketplace much more competitive. Your consumers are anticipating the delivery of their online orders. Make their experience exciting by delighting them with attractive packaging.

Stand out from the sea of plain paper envelopes, cardboard boxes, and bland poly mailers. Make a statement by branding or customizing your boxes, envelopes, poly mailers, and other packaging solutions with your company colors, logo, and visual identity. Use custom inner packaging to organize the package’s contents. Incorporate spacers, foam inserts, dividers, printed tissue, and printed void fill. Separate and wrap your items with on-brand reusable or disposable bags.

Fun Finishing Touches

While your product’s packaging may be the main focus, incorporating unique finishing touches creates a memorable unboxing experience that can help you stand out.

  • Keep your products neatly wrapped with custom tissue seals that have your logo or company name.
  • Add a personal touch with branded leaflets, thank you notes, product brochures, exclusive coupons, decorative postcards, or inserts that feature your company story.
  • Use a custom receipt holder or gift card carrier to personalize your packaging that much more.
  • Include free gifts such as a branded sticker sheet.
  • Tie it all together with a simple, chic ribbon.
