Carmel-by-the-Sea is one of the most visited destinations in California. Visitors worldwide are drawn by natural beauty, a charming community, the Big Sur coast, famous golf courses, the Monterey Aquarium, and elegant shopping, to name just a few of the area's many attractions. In addition, it has a high average income, as do nearby locations such as Pebble Beach, Pacific Grove and Monterey. This is an ideal place to offer quality jewelry.
Carmel places strict controls on the number and types of business permitted in the downtown area. A maximum of 32 jewelers are permitted - this location has one of these scarce permits, limiting the risk of unexpected new competition.
A typical jewelry sale might be in the $7,000 to $15,000 range. Items are offered from $100 to $100,000. Purses and wallets are offered from $50 to $4,000. The lower price offerings make the store inviting to walk-in visitors, as they know there are things suitable for an impulse buy even if they aren't seeking a big-ticket item. This not only optimizes revenue from visitor foot traffic, but it also exposes the more expensive items to potential clients who may return later.
