Jewellery finance for retailers

For your customers, jewellery shopping is likely to be an emotional experience. From buying an engagement ring for their soon-to-be spouse to a watch for the special birthday of a loved one, every stage of the purchasing journey should be memorable for all the right reasons.

Offering the option to spread the cost of their jewellery improves customer confidence at the checkout and increases the likelihood of them making a purchase.

In fact, our recent survey revealed that a staggering 68% of customers said they would not have made the purchase if finance had not been available. And 50% said they spent more because of the availability of it.


Helping your customers to shine

For many customers, jewellery is seen as a significant investment. Help them buy the piece they really want by giving them a more flexible way to pay. We offer retail finance on a wide range of jewellery, including...

Engagement rings

Wedding rings

Watches

Here's what our partners say...

“Since we began working together we have developed an excellent relationship with Novuna Consumer Finance. Any query we do have, is dealt with quickly and effectively. The ‘can do’ attitude of our Relationship Manager has meant that we have been able to continually grow our sales with Novuna Consumer Finance and offer our customers excellent payment options. The portal system is easy to navigate and gives us great visibility of everything in real-time.

“Since implementing finance, we have seen our sales increase. It enables our clients to purchase their dream jewellery and watches without breaking their budget, making aspirational purchases affordable. It also enables us to upsell our products.”

Sophie Hunt, Head of Online Sales at C W Sellors

Benefits of retail finance

Whether your customers are treating themselves or shopping for a special gift for a loved one, there are lots of reasons why customers use finance to fund their jewellery purchases. Why not take your opportunity to drive footfall to your store and boost online traffic by offering finance?

Reach new customers

Customers buy from brands they feel understand them and meet their needs. By offering a more manageable way to pay, you can attract new customers while also re-engaging existing ones.

Boost buying power

Convert more customers by increasing the accessibility of your products. A piece of jewellery might seem unattainable when buying upfront, but the cost could fit nicely within a customer’s monthly budget.

Increase average order value

A customer may only have a certain amount of money saved up to buy jewellery upfront but, by spreading the cost using finance, an upgraded item or matching piece might become more affordable.

“Interest free finance helped me build my watch collection”

When Derek bought a new watch using interest free finance, he was so impressed by the whole experience that he returned to buy another less than six months later.

Our jewellery finance solutions

We offer different finance options to suit both your customers and your business. Whether you want to drive finance adoption by offering a more attractive interest free option or prefer to stick to a cost-neutral interest bearing solution, we can help.

Interest free

The most popular option amongst jewellery retailers, 0% credit allows customers to pay for their jewellery in instalments at no additional cost.

Interest bearing

Like a traditional loan, customers can pay for their jewellery in fixed-rate monthly instalments over a set period.

Buy now pay later

Customers can walk away with their dream piece and pay for it later. Plus, they won’t incur interest charges if they pay off the full amount within the deferral period.
