The way jewelers do business is changing, especially over the past 18 months, and many jewelers are finding other ways to buy and sell their pieces. One of those alternative ways is with private showings which may involve one party renting a hotel suite or other reservable space and sending invites to prospective buyers.
While these private shows are another way to pivot your business strategy to facilitate meaningful connections, you still need to be vigilant when it comes to keeping yourself and your inventory secure.
A lot of jewelry crimes that make headlines in the news today revolve around smash-and-grab robberies.
These are often high-profile, brazen attacks that happen quickly and result in high-dollar losses. If you’ve ever seen surveillance footage of one, it almost appears that there’s nothing that could have been done to stop it – but that’s not always the case.
