2Shapes Scope - Expectations for 2021
We've found yet another amazing article from JCK's editor-in-chief Victoria Gomelsky, that covers what the jewelry industry has learned from 2020, and what we should expect from 2021.
The writing starts by marking how the spending on travel and experiences was turned last year into jewelry sales, as people were interested in gifts with meaning and long-lasting value, making jewelry stores endure and even take off.
Following, we find 5 trends that will shape your business this year:
1. In digitality, we find salvation
It's no secret that many jewelers had to jumpstart their online stores abruptly at the start of 2020, but many felt this change as an opportunity to upscale their business and reach a broader, international audience. In the article, we read that online sales grew an astonishing 49%.
Many of these jewelers found out that using 2Shapes to make their e-commerce is easier than they had anticipated, and that our Suite of programs boosted their business in more than one way.
2. Jewelry that can be worn at home.

Yes, these two technologies will be shortly be made available to you. And no, do not fret, these will become very clear to you once you have them in front of you. Remember when you had to create a social network or your online store? It will be a soft start and will scale slowly until you are ready to reach perfection.
Both Augmented Reality and Artificial Intelligence are sure to appear on mainstream media such as social networks, or your everyday tools, like 2Shapes.
