At Crème de La Crème in Davis, Calif., Shopkeeper Christie Zamora positions jewelry as impulse items to generate customer interest.

tep into Crème de La Crème, a gift shop in Davis, Calif., and you’re immediately transported to the streets of Paris. The 500-square-foot European-style gift shop is tiny in size but huge in ambiance – customers’ senses are delighted by the sights (unique gifts for newborns to retirees), smells (candles, soaps) and even sounds (classical or French music) that fill the store. So, how does Shopkeeper Christie Zamora highlight jewelry in this setting? Zamora, along with other gift shop owners throughout the country, offered an array of ideas to make jewelry a shining star and top seller at their gift shops.

Dramatic Displays
Real tree branches, vintage medicine cabinets, wire dress mannequins, sleek cabinets with lots of light - there are a plethora of ways to display and call attention to jewelry, but one thing seems clear: it needs to be dramatic and positioned correctly.
