Looking at the newly opened retail jewelry stores you can immediately notice a different look and feel. All seem to be more open, airy and inviting. You will quickly notice there has been a major shift in the type of glass jewelry showcases store designers and jewelry store owners are using nowadays. Before most jewelry showcases were comprised of a solid cabinet with storage below the glass display area. Nowadays the space below the jewelry glass display area is all open. The new trend is to install legs (wood or metal) at each corner of the jewelry cases to hold them off the ground. Done are the below compact cabinets. Some newly manufactured glass jewelry showcases are even manufactured with some solid wood sides and nothing in the middle. This is all beneficial since now consumers can focus only on the jewelry.
