Gem Platinum Selects GemFind to Develop New Website

Fine jewelry designer Gem Platinum/Jeffrey Daniels Unique Designs has teamed up with GemFind to design its new website, promising a fresh new look and improved technology.

The new site incorporates GemFind’s social product network, JewelCloud, which allows the jewelry designer to better support and connect with its retailers. Gem Platinum can invite and connect with new retailers (even in areas where they have no representation), search and connect with hundreds of the industry’s top retailers, feed managed product data into authorized retailers’ websites, monitor product performance, assign sales reps, schedule appointments, and provide access to marketing materials.

“I am extremely pleased and enthusiastic about our partnership with GemFind,” said owner and CEO Jeffrey Post in a press release. “I had been working with other site developers and managers for many years on my previous websites. While the other companies were extremely capable in accomplishing my prior goals, I felt there wasn’t enough internal support to address this new effort in a timely manner and across multiple platforms. Although we have not yet made a public announcement for our new website, I have already received several new requests from retailers asking for more information about different pieces.”
