Buying a beautiful piece of jewellery is one thing but the presentation of such a gift is another. If you have spent a small fortune on a prized possession for a loved one, should the quality of packaging be representative of the price paid?
Packaging entices us to look further, makes a product appear more desirable and if used effectively can lure us in to buy it. We’ve all seen cheaper looking products presented in a tatty looking plastic box, whereas some more costly products have packaging that becomes a firm keepsake. We believe that Jewellery packaging is a crucial factor to ensuring our satisfaction and it feeds our desire to buy beautiful looking things.
One such company that produces beautiful looking packaging is Astley Clarke. The video below showcases how each purchase is hand packed and presents a real testament to providing true luxury. We have also featured some amazing and creative Jewellery Packaging samples from companies around the world.

Having seen how the pros do it, how much importance should packaging play on our decision to make a purchase? Would a better looking box or bag make you want to pay more? or does it just allow you to make your mind up quicker? In some ways we feel it actually provides a confidence in the company, it can present a well established brand and like the multiple layers presented above provides a sense of wonder and excitement when opening such a gift. Lets just hope the item inside is worth the wait!!
We welcome your thoughts.
