Jewelry.com Set to Relaunch Newly Designed Website

New York–based e-commerce company Jewelry.com will debut its new website in late June with a state-of-the-art format and design.

The new look will better showcase jewelry from up-and-coming designers as well as Jewelry.com’s curated collections. Currently, Jewelry.com hosts 20 designers who feature their pieces on their own branded jewelry boutiques. Since these designer boutiques will be the main focus of the new website, Jewelry.com plans to add 15 more designers to the site in time for the relaunch. It also intends to expand its reach to select international markets.

“Consumers are hungry to discover new and innovative jewelry brands, but it is rare for a brand to break through nationally,” said Ofer Azrielant, Jewelry.com president, in a press release. “Jewelry.com offers a heavily trafficked platform that allows new and emerging brands to receive national and global exposure.”

Take a look at the company’s designer boutiques at jewelry.com.

Ritani Released New Advertising Campaign During NFL Draft

Wedding jewelry brand Ritani debuted a new national advertising campaign during the NFL draft on ESPN last week.

The strategy was meant to set the company apart from its competitors not only by appealing primarily to a male audience but also by highlighting its technology and jewelry innovations.

One such novelty is the Ritani Virtual Gemologist, an e-commerce tool that allows customers to view a diamond, select a ring, and either send it to their homes or to one of Ritani’s retail partners prior to making their purchase. Such innovations, among others, have helped to make men comfortable shopping on Ritani’s site, and have turned Ritani first-time customers into clients for life.
