After all, jewelry is all about adornment – and in many cases, ultimate luxury. Whether you’re in a league with Tiffany’s or an independent artisan, to create the right atmosphere, your store must have a layout and fixtures that focus the customer’s attention on collections or individual pieces while allowing them to browse comfortably.
