All About TR Jewellery
Jewellery has been and remains an important category in Travel Retail. Its small size to high value ratio makes it ideal for all Travel Retail channels where space is a premium, while its artistic beauty and glitz enable eye catching displays to be created in airport and cruise ship retail spaces. Some of the highest priced items sold in inflight retail are jewellery and some brands have had up to eight pages and twelve listings in one inflight brochure. Jewellery can be multipurpose and collectable which has helped in repeat sales and the building of successful global brands.
