If you’ve already read the Gold Vault page in JCK’s October issue, you know that bimetal designs—pieces made with two metals bonded together, but in fine jewelry, it’s primarily sterling silver fused to either 18k or 22k gold—add extra value and oomph to cases. So as you prepare for the critical fourth quarter (and a holiday season full of silver sales, according to many merchants), take a closer look at bimetal jewelry. Here are five more styles that could inspire sales in your store.
