Updated: Jan 25

China Jewelry Trends Report 2024 | CDM Marketing

The year just passed has brought to the complete end of the restrictions for the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, especially in China with the final opening of its borders to the world. Despite this, multiple complex situations make the international economic recovery difficult, and China is no exception.

While numerous sectors in China face uncertainties, the country's jewelry industry exhibits remarkable resilience, by outperforming other sectors and experiencing rapid growth.

Unlike other industries rooted in modern origins - such as luxury, tourism, and lifestyle for instance - the jewelry industry in China has deep-seated ties to the country's cultural and social history. The fact that Chinese jewellery buyers span various generations means as a whole China’s jewellery market is showing some utterly different reality.

For example, while the US or Europe see diamonds unquestionably dominate the jewelry-making scene, in China, gold commands over 50% of sales, valued not only for its aesthetics but also for its investment and social significance.

As suggested by data, over the past years the Chinese jewelry market has displayed robust growth patterns. As of 2020, the market value of the industry reached RMB 610 billion. This saw a significant surge, with the market's total size approximating RMB 815,9 billion in 2022.

The Chinese jewelry market: an ever-evolving scenario

As in almost every aspect of today’s Chinese society, the landscape is undergoing a significant transformation due to the surge in younger consumers. Not surprisingly, individuals aged 18 to 35 represent now over half of China’s jewelry-consumption market share and their tastes and sensitivities are changing the way jewelry is perceived and bought. 

Naturally, these market developments create substantial opportunities for brands, both Western and Chinese. The competition is intensifying, especially with the rapid digitization and social media integration of the Chinese market, unlike anything seen in other countries.

For the first time in China's history, brand value surpasses material as the primary driver for jewelry choices. Brands looking to capitalize on this new reality in the Chinese market must craft unique narratives and positions, establish effective sales channels (such as eCommerce and live-streaming sales), and implement savvy marketing tactics (including social media marketing and influencer collaborations).
