I just purchased 3 of the single case dynamic displays and used them
for my first show at the Chicago ACC show in April. In fact as I am
writing this I have set up my cases to figure out how I am going to
incorporate the new displays I bought for my jewelry to go on. It
takes about 45 minutes to set up my three cases, that doesn’t include
the time it takes to clean all the glass and plexi, but, that is a
continual job anyway. I am very happy with them though I wish they
were a little less top heavy. I bought the tallest bases they sell
in order to get them as close to eye level as possible without having
to bend over. This height to base ratio makes them less stable than
if they were short. The advantage is though that people tend to not
lean on them as much (emphasis on as much…customers still do it).
The first thing I would tell you is that if you get “the works”:
lights, fabric skirts, carrying cases, etc., and buy more than one
case, you’ll spend more than a thousand bucks. The three I bought
cost almost $2,000 ($1,980 something).
The cases are wonderful. They are quite sturdy when fully tightened
and allow a great deal of creative display. I have the black
interior which shows of my higher karat items beautifully. I have
one slanted case and two square cases. I will probably buy one or
two plain pedestals just to have a place for people to sign charge
receipts and such.
I think the best compliment I got was from other jewelers who came by
every day of the show to take a look at the cases. They all liked
them and wanted to know if I would mind if they got some too! As
long as they don’t copy my designs I couldn’t care less.
If you indeed buy the cases tell them that I recommended them to you.
They give a nice referral bonus, too!
