Research Paper ABSTRACT“I love you,” this short and simple phrase is currently important to the branding of Zales Jewelry. Zales has been helping couples say “I love you” since 1924 with the vision to “provide customers with quality jewelry at the lowest possible price” ( Although Zales Corp. is a major, hard-hitting brand with a foundational history; many major players are also in the same industry. Kay Jewelers, Jared’s (The Galleria of Jewelry), Wal-Mart, and of course any town’s local jewelry store are in the same competitive market. Although, there are many competitors Zales has been able to stay afloat by cutting cost and appealing many high-end jewelry buyers. Jewelry is in high demand for someone seeking to by an engagement ring for his or her significant other, a gift, or a personal treasure for oneself. As this jewelry industry is crowded the project has developed a strategic plan to make Zales Jewelry to standout amongst competitors.

What is going to make Zales “pop” or standout from everyone else with similar products, prices, target audi-ence, location and many other similarities?” The design. The design and the presentation in which Zales is presented to its target audience and consumers who plan on purchasing some type of jewelry is what it is going to take for Zales to “pop”. This new design plan will include creating a tagline that will create a reaction in consumers to compel them to purchase Zales. Revamping the black and white packing and make it unique. Revitalizing the bland website, existing logo, print and commercial advertisements will all propel Zales to the highest sales performance, increase its distribution, and expand its target audience.

Page 12: zales project book

IntroductionJewelry, a distinguishable fashion statement to accent any attire, is used to glamorize a personal image, a status symbol, or as a representation of love and affection. Zales is a well-known brand that provides diamonds, gold, rings, earrings and other fine jewelry, to many consumers. With the vision to “provide customers with quality merchandise at the lowest possible price,” Zales has been able to maintain its position.

GoalAlthough, Zales has a solid foundation and history, and has remained strong during company economic difficulties, Zales needs to improve in many areas. The goal of this project is maintain company strengths and strengthen its weaknesses by expanding Zales’ target audience, evolving the existing logo, creating a new tagline/campaign slogan, and by completing a website reconstruction. While critiquing weaknesses and threats, then by providing solid design, campaign, new product solutions, and branding strategy, this Zales project will capitalize on the opportunity to make Zales the leading jewelry retailer.

The Foundation & StrengthsWhat makes a company like Zales survive and thrive? It’s foundation. Zales firm foundation of strengths holds the company to valuable standards; even in economic downturns this

company is able to survive and thrive in an unstable economy. Zales keeps in mind the consumer market: what the customers’ needs and wants are. While keeping in mind these needs and wants, one of the strengths can be found in the vision. Zales is committed to “providing customers with quality merchandise at the lowest possible price (Zales History:” This vision is translated into Zales other evident strengths such as: financing/credit, quality jewelry, and reasonable prices. Zales also prides itself on having a strong history in developing various products and other brands. Consumers and competitors notice that Zales has a wide selection of merchandise. With an exclusive jewelry replacement program, Zales is a strong competitor.

Weaknesses Some weakness could ruin a company, but by examining these pitfalls, Zales can be propelled to the level were it’s dominating the jewelry industry. One of the major weaknesses Zales exhibits are its stale marketing and advertising concepts. Television watchers are accustomed to watching commercials with the normal man and wife or fiancés; advertising engagement rings or anniversary gifts. While, magazine readers and web surfers are hit with the usual black and white ad- but where is the finesse? The black, and white cold color scheme is continued to the company’s website. Although, black and white is very attractive, many viewers want to be attracted by other exiting elements.

“Shine Exclusively”

Page 13: zales project book

There are little to no commercial campaigns by Zales, although older Zales television spots were popular; updated commercials have been depleted. Currently, Zales is not able to compete with other strong jewelry store campaigns.

Brand NeedsZales is in obvious need of creating innovative, exciting, and attention grabbing commercials. Even though Zales is known worldwide and is a historic brand, there is a large gap in the Zales brand awareness. Do many people know that Zales offers “quality merchandise at the best possible price ( Are ads showing people all of the financial benefits that the

brand has to offer to purchase jewelry? The answer to all of these questions is, no. The lack of brand awareness is a major pitfall, but as the issue is addressed, the new resolution could propel this company higher.

OpportunitiesThe windows of opportunity are open for Zales. The jewelry industry is extremely competitive and plays a major role in fashion retailing. High-end jewelry is always wanted for anniversary’s, gifts, engagements, or simply just because. But, what does Zales have to offer? In this window of opportunity, Zales has a large chance to take the consumers by storm by enlarging its target market through creative, out-of-the box advertising.

1313 Research

Page 14: zales project book

When the company logo is revamped with a classic, yet fresh touch, Zales will gain a an even larger retail audience. Zales usually stays safe with emotional campaigns, helping couples say “I love you.” To compete with others Zales can offer a more humorous and emotional advertising campaigns. Next, in addition to other customer loyalty programs that are revolving, Zales has the opportunity to create a more progressive customer program. This program has the opportunity to gain and include first time Zales shoppers to benefit from shopping Zales Jewelers.

Key ThreatsOne of the key threats has always been competition. But, particularly, there is the advancement of competitive advertising such as Kay Jeweler’s and Jared. Kay Jewelers has the recognizable catchphrase: “Every kiss begins with K.” Jared- The Galleria of Jewelry has that famous line in commercials: “He went to Jared (” By the use catchy and memorable catchphrases, customers are more apt to think of these places whenever he or she needs to purchase jewelry. Other jewelry store prices are also competitive, causing Zales sales to be threatened by these low pricing strategies.

The PurposeAny strong company has weaknesses and the point of this project is to magnify those strengths, to decrease and eliminate those weaknesses in order for Zales to expand into larger markets and increase sales.

The SolutionThe first order of business is to escalate brand awareness and brand messaging. Many people are familiar with Zales and what type of products and services that Zales offers, yet are not aware that Zales has excellent financing options. The classic Zales print/web and commercial advertising are very predictable, stark, and

one-dimensional, appealing to one target market (the engagement ring buying group).

The PlanPlan one: create a brand message/advertising campaign that will appeal to a mass audience. With previous campaigns, Zales is known for its formality and for helping couples say “I love you” ( This new campaign will evoke an emotional connection, with an informal, light-hearted and more personal brand message. Brand messaging will include a total redo of the tagline/slogan, more creative copy for print ads, and more energetic commercials. Not only will consumers be familiar with the Zales brand, but also he or she will feel an actual connection with the Zales “family” brand.

Another crucial segment in eliminating weaknesses is to examine the company’s design aspects such as: website, logo, packaging, store signs, and prints and determine what element or elements could be added or subtracted to make the website stand out from any other jewelry company. Overhauling the premier advertisements and logo that people introduced to before visiting the website or store is extremely important to capture consumers’ attention.

ReconstructionRevamping the typical jewelry website will change online shopping into an in-store like shopping experience. A site that is not only a “website” but is online “jewelry store,” giving customers a simulation of the real shopping experience. The idea for the “online shopping store” is to be interactive including shopping musing, real people, and to actually look like a Zales’ store. Some of the elements will include a digital jewelry counter. The main point of the website is to be exciting, unique, simple, and chic to make the customer feel as if they had walked into a Zales’ store or kiosk.

Page 15: zales project book

Secondly, the current Zales’ logo is black, clean, and streamline. Although the new logo will have its own identity it will still hold to the integrity of its old logo but add a pop of color. “Color plays a vitally important role in the world in which we live. Color can sway thinking, change actions, and cause reactions ( The pop of color will be burgundy, navy blue, or a gold. The new logo will say that we are bright, sophisticated, and modern.

Thirdly, the current Zales’ package is silver. But, what is going to make this little silver packet even more sleek? This project will explore possible signature package

that could compete on the same level as the Tiffany & Co. blue box with the white tie. The project presentation will include various packaging choices for Zales to choose from. Some of the choices will include: sleek black jewelry boxes, shiny black bags, and glossy black engagement ring/gift boxes that included a lock and are opened by a key and boxes engraved with the new logo. The main packaging that will be pushed are the glossy black bags and boxes with lock and key, which could be signature and exclusive to Zales.

Page 16: zales project book

Revamping AdvertisingUsually Zales has the expected to have the regular black and white ad but this project wants to evoke a more exciting emotion. The project will take the formal store signs and print ads and transform them into something people want to read and reread; something that has memorable nature. The ad is something that is worth bragging about. Print ads will use bold typeface, action words, punchy lines, and creative wording.

The design of Zales print ads will be totally fashionable which is intended to show consumers how the piece of jewelry will look with their clothing apparel. By showing fashionable jewelry in a trendy light. The total look of the Zales print ad will be fashionable as well as worded creatively.

New Product lineAnother way to propel this company forward is by creating a new product line. A rejuvenated product line will make the brand more competitive in its market. The target market for the new product line is for ladies and males ages fifteen to twenty-three. This age group is also looking for quality jewelry to accessorize everyday school outfits, prom wear, as well as other special occasion attire. The product line will be youthful keeping in with the values of quality, an expensive look, and the use of real materials.

This product line differentiates itself from other company’s jewelry by its youthful style without being cheap, unoriginal, or for short-term wearing purpose. The purpose of the new

product line is to gain an audience that has not found a need or desire in Zale’s product and to meet those needs of the teen to young adult age range. Now Zales will represent the target age group of twenty-three to sixty-five.

Visual Mission StatementLastly, what Zales needs is to create a visible Mission Statement for consumers to see upon viewing the website or entering stores. People want to know what the company can and will do for them, but by providing customers with a tangible Brand mission Statement, Zales will be taken more seriously as company that is committed to providing exceptional customer service, quality jewelry, and an original jewelry buying experience.

ConclusionRevamping a historic and well-known jewelry company like Zales is important to the company’s reputation. Zales is one of the a leading retailers for high-end jewelry committed to providing quality merchandise at the lowest possible price and helping couples say “I love you.” What this project will do is keep all of the philosophies that Zales has and transform them into a design package that is creative which will include: redesigning the logo, website, package, developing a new tagline, and developing a new product line for a younger target audience. Jewelry is a competitive industry with many major and local jewelry stores. The project will make Zales more competitive and more recognizable amongst consumers to standout from competitors in the same field.
