Start a Jewelry Business in the Netherlands

Are you keen to invest in the glitter of the Dutch jewelry sector and start a Dutch jewelry business?

Jewelry is a big deal in the Netherlands. Despite the recent slump due to global events, the market remains strong, with the segment expected to generate more than €550 million in revenue in 2020. This is expected to grow by 5% per year over the next three years. This is due to the Dutch spending more of their growing disposable income on luxury goods, such as jewelry, and the average Dutch consumer is expected to spend around €38 every year on jewelry in the next few years



What’s more, smaller and local jewelry businesses have become more competitive and have gradually taken market share away from the bigger, more established jewelry companies. This is great news for investors like yourself to start a jewelry business in the Netherlands and reap the rewards of this increasingly lucrative market.

How do I set up a jewelry company in the Netherlands

  • When you start a Dutch business, the first thing you have to do is to register a Dutch company with the Dutch Trade Register, which must include the mandatory NACE (Nomenclature of Economic Activities) number. For jewelry businesses, the numbers are as follows (depending on the type of operation):
    Section G; Division 46, 47; Group 46.4, 47.7; Class 46.48, 47.77.

  • Once you have registered your company, such as a popular limited liability company, or Dutch BV, there are certain licenses you need to apply for before you can start a Dutch business selling jewelry. Some of these include import licenses, market licenses, as well as permits to sell jewels online.
