Jewellery on vend - hot or not?

17 May 2012

Annie Haak is committed to creating jewellery that makes our customers look and feel amazing and we have put together a collection of sterling silver bracelets, necklaces, earrings and rings inspired by nature and Eastern culture that are accessible to many. However, we’d not thought of making our jewellery this accessible...


Gitanjali Group has collaborated with the Siddhivinayak Trust to launch the Gitanjali Jewellery Vending Machine at the Shree Siddhivinayak temple in Mumbai. The innovative idea behind the collaboration is to introduce a convenient way for worshippers to buy jewellery – a sort of purchase while you pray scenario.


This is the second vending machine of its kind and it vends gold jewellery and diamond jewellery in up to 18 different designs as well as gold and silver coins. Both jewellery design and price are displayed on a touch screen and the customer has the choice to pay by cash, card or net banking. After payment, the machine dispenses the jewellery along with a certificate of authenticity and a receipt.


Our customers are able to buyAnnie Haak online or from one of our stockists, but if we were to consider the retail avenue of jewellery vending machines in places of worship then our Indah Silver Buddha Charm Bracelet would be a good contender on the Indian subcontinent. Meanwhile, our Gili Freshwater Pearl Cross Rosary Necklace and Gili Chinese Turquoise Cross Rosary Necklace might be well placed in Catholic churches and our Sterling Silver Santi Cross Charm Bracelet and Ibu Dove Necklace could go down well too. Let us know your thoughts...
