1. Think Local
This is one of the most interesting trends we've seen, think about the people who are attracted to your brand, what values and interests are important for them, and then go ahead and create a space following those guidelines. gone are the days of designing copy paste stores. There's a lot of growth behind social selling and making your store a hub for the community rather than just a transactional place.
This could be perhaps hosting events, creating an atmosphere for clients to mingle and talk to each other, and coming up with selling spaces where your employees can interact with customers while they look at a nice piece of jewelry together.
2. Is Your Store Instagrammable?
Particularly for a younger audience, this is something that will drive them to visit your store, unique store design that incorporates elements worthy of a selfie is something every jeweler should be thinking about. This will not only help your store traffic, it will also do wonders for brand awareness.
Having a consistent presence online is such an important part of your business that cannot be overlooked. Just as having a physical presence is just as crucial, research shows that a new store can drive traffic to a retailer's website by 37 percent.
According to IBM’s report, nearly 3 in 4 consumers still rely on in-person shopping as part of their primary buying method. Additionally, new research from Forrester predicts that in 2024, 72% of U.S. retail sales will still occur in brick-and-mortar stores.

4. Make them feel at "home"
incorporate elements such as hardwood floors to your store, a well placed lounge room, or how about a bar! providing customers with a warm and homey atmosphere will make them feel more at ease, hang out at your store longer and with that feeling of relaxation they are more likely to shop at your store.
Also, try to introduce natural lighting and use paint with warm tones to produce that cozy effect, decorating your space with plants work great as well.
