GemFind Announces Release of New Facebook App 

Jewelry technology and marketing provider GemFind has released the Diamond Link app, a new Facebook app designed to increase retail sales through the social media platform. The Diamond Link app allows jewelry retailers to integrate the same GemFind diamond-search technology that’s on their websites into their Facebook pages. With the app, retailers can choose which diamond dealers to display in the virtual Facebook showroom, either by exhibiting their own diamonds or by using GemFind’s vendors’ inventory. Customers can also make purchases directly on the page through PayPal. 

“We’re excited to launch this new Facebook app that provides jewelry retailers another channel to market diamonds to their customers and generate leads,” said GemFind CEO Alex Fetanat. “Jewelers have a captive audience on their Facebook page that they can constantly market their goods and services to, and our Facebook-compatible diamond-search app will definitely enhance interactivity and engagement with prospective buyers.”

Hannoush is one of the most interesting chains for us due to the geography and also the philosophy of high-quality service and focus on the individual customer.” 

The Endless Jewelry collection features a variety of colorful leather wrap bracelets and handmade sterling silver charms created especially for the line. 

“Our consumers are always looking for the latest trends in jewelry, and the impressive line of Endless Jewelry brings an entirely new concept to customers looking for something different—something chic—in a market flooded with copycats,” said Hannoush Jewelers vice president Camile Hannoush.
