Jewellers eyeing Father’s day to push sales
Just like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day seems to be turning out into another occasion of buying jewellery. More and more Indian jewellers are coming up with exciting range of men jewellery to target the men on such occasions.
After Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Akshaya Tritya, it was Father’s Day that was celebrated on June 15. Though the day marked for Father’s is not as popular as Valentine’s or Mother’s Day, this occasion has managed to create a niche among other special days.
In last few years, the Indian markets have changed significantly. People are welcoming global rituals and traditions and also keen on celebrating the same. Hence, special days like Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day is gaining importance in India too. These days are increasingly becoming special for the retail market which also includes retail jewellers.
Jewellery accounts for most when it comes to gifting on such days. Hence, the jewellers eye on such event to push their jewellery sales. Need not mention, this is one of the reasons why we see a spurt of exclusive collections rolled out in this period. Major promotional activities are carried out as well with a halo of sentiments buzzing around the new collection.
This year too, many jewellers are bringing out latest collection for men in diamond, gold, silver and platinum. The product range includes cufflinks, rings, bracelets, chains, tie pins, kurta buttons etc. Online jewellery stores too stocking up the latest collection for men with alluring offers.

Not only Jani, there are many more jewellers that have launched some new collections to lure the customers.
