Unless you're a jeweler or work for a retail establishment that sells these items, you've probably never thought about the display cases you see at nearly every local store. These are typically made of either glass or acrylic because both of these allow the buyer to clearly view the contents and maximize the amount of light exposure they receive. In fact, glass enhances the piece's ability to sparkle, which makes them ideal for showing precious stones and metals. Acrylics don't necessary look as eye catching, but they are more definitely more durable than glass. Acrylic is also easier to clean because glass smudges constantly. Most stores use a combination modular display cases, counter top fixtures, jewelry islands, rotating display towers, and wall units. These come in a variety of colors, frames, and wood finishes. Kiosk concepts are also very common in the industry, especially in smaller stores that need to maximize their space, such as mall retailers. All prospective buyers need to consider safety their top priority, though. Attractive displays are desirable, but not if they fail to protect your items from theft or damages. Jewelry is a common target for thieves because it's expensive, lightweight, and easy to resell. Having a secure set of display cases will give you much needed peace of mind, which truly is priceless.
