People 24-35 buy more jewelry

Young people between 24 and 35 years old, so-called “millennials,” spend more than others for jewelry. More precisely, in 2014 they bought jewelry for 28% more than the average. It is the conclusion of Edahn Golan, mega industry consultant and owner of Diamond Research & Data, a company specializing in the analysis of the jewelry industry and predict trends. But, in general, the jewelry is loved by young people: consumers under 25, for example, have increased their spending on jewelry of 100% between 2003 and 2013. This is also why the United States, in particular, jewelry sales last year increased by 1.4%. The US remains the largest market in the world for jewelry, with sales of $ 68.8 billion in 2014: the average expenditure was $ 434 per family. And if you also include the clocks, the average goes up to $ 612. Beware, though: Golan warns that consumers buy more, but spend less. Translated: they buy more jewelry, but spend less per piece. Another news: the people purchases jewels throughout the year, not just during the Christmas season. Indeed, in 2014, the sell in stores before 25 December fell by 1.2 per cent.
