Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and content creators can be a marketer’s. 

When a creator partnership leads to authentic content, it builds brand awareness and trust. After all, jewelry can be a big investment, so customers want to be sure about what they’re purchasing.

And while the photos on your website are great at showcasing your products, sometimes it’s a lot more effective to see your favorite creator style a piece in their #OOTD. 

Whether you’re new to influencer marketing or a seasoned pro, we’re sharing our fave tips for boosting your ROI with the help of jewelry influencers. 

Top jewelry trends to look out for 

DIY jewelry

The pandemic led to an increase in crafting as people looked for new ways to fill their days indoors. And while it’s no sourdough, jewelry making did become quite popular. 

Now, people want to share their new skills with the world, so creators share videos of their creative process and images of their handmade jewelry with their followers. Tutorials are also popular for beginners looking to get into crafting. 

Sustainable jewelry

Eco-consciousness has seen a rise in all industries as more and more people look for ways to reduce waste and be gentler with the planet. Customers want to know who they’re buying from, so jewelry companies that use ethical practices and sustainable materials can (and should!) promote these to their followers. 

Delicate gold jewelry 

@callherkarenbby Delicate gold jewelry always makes me feel extra feminine @Catbird #catbirdnyc #catbird #goldjewelry #goldjewlerycheck #goldnecklace ♬ Why Are There Boundaries – FKJ

For the minimalist who still loves a good accessory, delicate gold jewelry provides just the right amount of sophistication to an outfit. Brands offering dainty accessories can hop on this trend by sending their products to creators, who can style them or even show off the pieces’ quality on camera.

How jewelry brands can (and should!) partner with influencers 

1. Determine your target audience. 

First, do a demographic deep-dive into your target audience. Is your jewelry for men or women, or is it unisex? Is it a pricier product? If so, you might want to focus on an older demographic with more disposable income. 

Once you have the age, gender, location, and other demographic information locked in, it’s time to use it to find the right creators. 

2. Look for content creators. 

Check out all of the major social media channels and find creators who match your brand’s aesthetic and whose audience largely reflects your target demographic. You can do this by manually sorting through their followers, but this can take a ton of time. If you have the budget, consider using a creator management platform to identify audience information quickly and easily. 

10 Top Jewelry Influencers & Why Content Creators Are the Gold Standard for Accessory Brands 1

Pro Tip: Many content creators who post about jewelry make it themselves, so they probably won’t want to promote another brand. Look for creators who instead like to wear a lot of jewelry, post #OOTDs, or have a general interest in fashion.

Once you identify the creators you want to work with, it’s time to reach out. 

3. Send them jewelry to wear. 

Now that you’ve identified a few creators, send them some products to model and share with their followers.

It’s important to talk to your creators at this stage about their interests. For example, double-check that their ears are pierced before sending earrings, or ask them if they prefer gold or silver if you offer both metals. 

When you can get an accurate idea of what they like, you can tailor the products you send to them so they’re sure to love them. 

4. Consider offering an affiliate link or discount code. 

If you’re big on data (we think everyone should be!), you can use discount codes or affiliate links to see how your creators’ content performs. These also are good for giving customers an extra incentive to purchase, and if you’re working with creators on a commission basis, codes and links give them more motivation to make sure their posts perform well. 

5. Track key performance indicators. 

Depending on the goals you set out to achieve at the beginning of your venture into the creator economy, you should have a set of key performance indicators (KPIs) that will help you measure your success. 

If your main goal was to increase brand awareness, measure your social accounts’ followers over time and how much engagement your creators’ posts received. On the other hand, if your goal was to gain more content to repurpose, check the quality of your creators’ posts. 

6. Analyze results. 

Compare your data to your initial goals. Are your creators underperforming? Excelling? Take this information and use it to guide your next steps. If your creators are absolutely killing it, consider developing long-term partnerships with them. 

On the other hand, if their content isn’t performing as well as you’d like, consider offering them more creative freedom in the future or even end your partnership and pursue other creators.

Key takeaway: Jewelry brands can shine when they partner with content creators. 

In such a saturated market, reaching new audiences and building brand awareness can be hard. And with so much cheap jewelry on the market, customers are wary about making a purchase they can’t see IRL. Creators can help showcase your products and their quality, helping bring legitimacy to your products and hopefully conversions to your website.
