Wholesale Jewellery UK by Miss Milly.
Miss Milly is the new name for gorgeous and reasonably priced, quality wholesale costume jewellery with attractive retail price points and great margin potential. And all of this backed up by excellent customer service, great variety of products and a lower minimum order at just £50. All the wholesale costume jewellery can still be purchased in singles, which strongly appeals to retailers. And the carriage cost has been reduced to £6.95.
Miss Milly has envisaged a season full of crystal twinkles and is really excited about the new heart lines in the Carmen Collection as well as the next phase of the Floria Collection, which went down a storm in the Spring.

Costume Jewellery Wholesale Trends Spring 2014
Wednesday, 29 January 2014
What we should be doing on the final day is making a list of all the little things that make the subsequent show so much easier:
* how many new bulbs to buy
* top up the stationery box with staples and pens that actually work
* how many display stands are now at the end of their lives and need replacing
* remove any items from the stock samples that have definitely sold out
* jot down any ideas about improving the stand - don't rely on your memory as once order processing starts, these ideas will be filed away in the depths of your brain only to resurface on day one of the next show
Wishing all Spring Fair exhibitors a great show next week!

Pearl jewellery is a hugely popular category for Miss Milly, and with the advent of dying and colour, and the evolution of design, there are many contemporary and unusual styles to be found. Our Rainbow Pearl Necklace is consistently one of our best-sellers, and the cobalt blue Milly Pearl jewellery has been hugely popular this year.
Since ancient times, pearls have symbolised unblemished perfection, and have been the ideal wedding gift to represent purity. In the Hindu religion, the presentation of an undrilled pearl and its piercing has formed part of the marriage ceremony. Today in the UK, pearls are still a very popular choice for bridal jewellery.
Pearls are the oldest known gem and were the most valuable for a long time. The ancient Egyptians were buried with them and in classical Rome only people above a certain rank were allowed to wear pearl jewellery. Now, with the advent of pearl cultivation, they are more affordable and available to the mass market.
The most revered pearls are from the South Sea, off the waters of Australia, Indonesia, Japan, Myanmar, the Philippines and Thailand. Their legacy reaches back to the times of early Aboriginal people who believed the gem had supernatural powers and used them in dream interpretation.
Pearls are graded in terms of lustre, surface, shape, colour and size with the roundest, shiniest, largest and smoothest being the most prized, whilst colour is down to individual preference. For us, and we are obviously biased, we prefer the look and individuality of the baroque freshwater pearls that make up our jewellery as they make the pieces more interesting.
If you're also a fan of pearls and pearl jewellery, a trip to the Victoria & Albert Museum this Winter might be in order to see the Pearls exhibition running daily until 19 January 2014.

Having a website is a must for almost every business these days. It works as a virtual showroom, an information portal or, as in our case, it is the fundamental tool for your business.
Rather like a shop window, a website needs constant attention, design and functionality tweeks here and there, new information added or a total revamp. At Miss Milly, we have just relaunched our website with a beautiful new design.
Our aim has always been to create a simple and attractive site with a retail feel. Miss Milly is not just a jewellery wholesaler but a brand with its own identity. And we hope that the lifestyle photography on the home page and the aesthetically pleasing design help communicate this to users.
We have also created a specific trade section with call-outs and links to provide retailers with all the information they need about our terms of business and ordering. There is also an emphasis on buy local to encourage consumers to seek out their nearest Miss Milly stockist. The aim of building the brand is to create demand from consumers, motivating them to ask their favourite independent retailers for Miss Milly costume jewellery and fashion accessories.
We welcome all feedback on the website, so please do get in touch.
