Conclusion
  • With the globalization and a rapidly evolving environment, consumers are exposed to competition.
  • Due to that fact, jewellery market became a buyer market and not a seller market.
  • The whole Jewellery value chain should invest in the revival and sustainability of the gold industry, not only the gold mining industry or WGC because of the vested interest of all parties.
  • Have more strategically thinking focusing on long term success.
  • In these volatile and challenging times, it is time to put more effort into marketing, branding and overall customer experience instead of shying away.
