When you see a news story about jewelry crime, it usually features a brazen attack like a smash-and-grab robbery or rooftop burglary. While these crimes are newsworthy for the general public, jewelers shouldn't overlook small-scale thefts that continue to plague the jewelry industry, too.

Year after year, the number of these types of thefts reported to the Jewelers’ Security Alliance remains staggering. Each incident may represent a small dollar amount when compared to other types of crimes, but they can add up fast. If you don’t know what type of criminal behavior to be on the lookout for, these crimes will continue to nickel-and-dime (speaking extremely loosely) the industry a few pieces of jewelry at a time.

Keep these five types of jewelry store theft techniques on your radar and get in the habit of practicing preventative measures. See them at http://info.jewelersmutual.com/clarity-blog/5-types-of-jewelry-store-thefts-and-how-to-prevent-them
