In conjunction with our March is Me Month Campaign, WJA has invited luxury consumer insights firm LookLook to co-host a virtual event, Buying for Self as a Symbol of Empowerment, on Wednesday, March 22nd at 12pm EST. WJA and LookLook conducted a recent survey of luxury women consumers across the United States to better understand women’s relationship to jewelry, and when they choose to purchase fine jewelry and timepieces for themselves.
The event will benefit retailers and designers by revealing information about the milestones women celebrate and recognize for themselves, along with where they are spending their own money and how often. The results also include insights into the brands and aspirational pieces of jewelry women are wanting to purchase for themselves.
