Designer of the Carey bracelet finds way to ensure jewellery gift giving happiness.

Christmas gift seekers from around the globe can find the perfect gift with the Carey bracelet from Victoria, BC

Christmas and gift seekers from all around the globe now have a new method to find the perfect piece of jewellery, thanks to sales statistics from Adore Jewellery owner and designer, Alexander Carey of Victoria, BC.

Carey discovered that 25% percent of his sales worldwide for his unique “Carey bracelet” were to women named Barbara, Sharon or Kathleen. The Carey bracelet is a custom fitted design crafted from silver gold for ultimate comfort.

“I was astonished by the results,” said Carey. “Carey bracelet purchases are clearly dominated by the names Barbara, Sharon and Kathleen. “ While Carey has no insights into why these names top the list of buyers, he notes that the names are more traditional – perhaps reflecting the east coast heritage and classic bracelet design.

“I have been manufacturing the Carey Bracelet for 13 years. It’s remarkable to be able to identify jewellery design lovers by name.” He notes that the Carey bracelets are often purchased as mementos for special occasions and any successful jewellery gift purchase needs to capture the recipient’s individual taste and style –tricky business for the gift giver. “Who knows, maybe I have stumbled on the secret to giving jewellery gifts that are sure to be welcomed!” Carey concluded that he will definitely be running the statistics on names for all his jewellery designs.

Carey is a sought after Canadian jewellery designer with a strong family connection to innovation. Carey’s grandfather, John Carey designed the original Screwball Bracelet, well known in the eastern United States and Cape Code. Alexander Carey manufactures the bracelet and brings his own West Coast freshness to the piece which was featured as a special gift bracelet on The Bachelorette in 2010.

Design lovers are encouraged to visit Alexander Carey's elegant design studio in the historic Market Square district – a must do part of any design tours in Victoria, BC . Visitors can witness his designs coming to life as Carey fuses family’s East coast classic tradition with his own interpretations including Pacific elements.
