Personified by cut-throat competition, the jewelry industry operations are global in nature, involving intricate levels of interdependencies between different countries. This apparent fact has made the industry prone to the global economic ups and downs especially in key retailing markets and sourcing destinations. The major factors influencing the demand for jewelry are global prices of precious metals like gold, silver and gems like diamond with the personal income being the key element. While the worlds economy was undergoing the prosperity phase, the jewelry industry also witnessed a surge in the sales.

Among the key raw material used in the jewelry industry are diamond and gold. Diamonds, being rare in occurrence and beautiful in appearance, are largely used across many industries because of their unique properties. Diamonds prices are deeply affected by the global macroeconomic conditions which are the key factors for driving demand for diamond jewelry and supply. As far as the metals are concerned, gold always enjoyed the top priority because of its vivid physical and chemical properties like luster and ease of fabrication. Being traded on the commodity exchanges, gold price movements are also reflected in the gold jewelry consumption. Gold jewelry holds the top slots in majority of the markets across the globe and proves to be one of the main elixirs of the jewelry industry.

The US jewelry market has the branded and specialty jewelry enjoying the lead position. The US jewelry market accounts for approximately half of the revenues in the global jewelry market.
