1. Necklace Display Ideas
Necklaces can be the best types of jewelry to grab potential customers’ attention. They’re the most substantial pieces you can make when compared to earrings and bracelets. Use this to your advantage and show them off.

When selling handmade jewelry, I highly recommend having a statement necklace in the center of your table. This should be your most striking piece.
If you decide to use this tactic, consider placing it on a necklace bust. These look more elegant than the regular cardboard displays.
For the rest of your necklaces, easel necklace display stands are great options. They’re lightweight and fold flat which means you can easily carry a lot of them.
2. Bracelet Displays
When displaying jewelry at craft shows, adding various heights to your table(s) helps to create an interesting look. It prevents your jewelry from getting lost in a sea of other pieces on one plane.
Bracelet display stands e.g. single T-bar stands or a tiered bracelet display can elevate your jewelry and make it easier for customers to see what you have on offer.
Another bonus of using these kinds of jewelry displays is that they help to secure your jewelry. Protecting your jewelry from theft is crucial so you don’t lose money to sticky fingers.
If you hook the clasps and place several bracelets on a bar, a thief may only grab the ones along the ends, unless they’re bold enough or you’re not paying attention and they have time to slide all the jewelry off and run.
Half moon bracelet displays don’t offer this same element of protection as the jewelry is usually just laid across the top.
3. Earring Display Stands
There are so many kinds of earring stands and displays ranging from a simple T-shape style to display racks that hold several pairs simultaneously.
The style you choose depends on how many earrings you have to sell and, of course, personal preference.
If you like using earring cards as part of your jewelry packing, you can select earring card display stands made specifically for this purpose.
4. Ring Display Ideas
If you love making and selling rings, there’s no shortage of display options. You can purchase tapered stands or organizers with slots so you can arrange multiple rings.
5. Shelving Units
One simple way to maximize the space in your booth is to use shelving units. Doing this utilizes the vertical space so you can store more jewelry.
6. Tray Organizers
If you have lots of smaller jewelry pieces like earrings, rings and pendants, you can sort them into tray organizers. Don’t just use these in your closet at home.
Tray organizers are stackable making them a great space-saver in a small booth. The downside to this is customers won’t be able to see what’s in the tray underneath.
However, if you have several of the same item just in different colors or sizes, this could be a good option. Just make sure one of each item is in the tray on top.
Select tray organizers with transparent lids as these offer more security for your smaller items while still allowing customers to view the contents.
7. Glass Display Cabinet
You may consider using a free standing glass case to display your jewelry. This is a good option for several reasons:
- Better security – If your jewelry is behind a glass case, thieves won’t have easy access to your stuff.
- Elegant look – High end jewelry stores display items in glass cases so people are accustomed to this and it could elevate the look of your booth.
- Customers can see everything – A glass case with glass shelves allows customers to see exactly what you have.
Of course, there are some cons to using a glass display case as well:
- Customers may think your jewelry is expensive because your booth looks high end
- These types of display cases are not cheap.
- These are not a portable option and you’ll need help setting them up.
If you’re planning to sell jewelry or are already doing so, these displays for jewelry craft shows should give you some good ideas for how to attract more customers and protect your merchandise.
