Ecommerce Essentials: A look at Jewellery Websites

What a good Jewellery Website should have in place 

When it comes to setting up a good website for jewellery, you’ll need to do more than just list a few items here and there. The breakdown of categories have to run through various option, including the most popular. As much as women get attention for their accents, and jewels, men should not be left out. A good jewellery website has to be able to balance between both men’s and women’s fashion elements, including utilitarian design. For instance, everyday styles, fashion styles, contempary collection, etc.

Gender specific Categories laid out on home page

Men don’t always look at rings the same way as women do. Mostly because a lot of the designs don’t really fit in with the contemporary styles that men have. However, when you start to look at the fashion elements that are coming through right now, you’ll see that men’s rings are getting more interesting all the time. They are usually done with simplicity, in different precious metals, wood grain, and different patterns, such as the Celtic Lock. These patterns and designs should be part of the larger jewellery selection of any major website so that the popular options can be sorted easily rather than searching individually.

Wedding section/ Fashion Section

Aside from fashion, most jewellery shoppers look for functional design in terms of getting married, assuming this is also when a lot of the higher value jewellery purchases are made. . Once a man gets married, they will want to have a ring that represents the bond and union of the marriage. That’s where this comes into play, especially with the better jewellery sites that abound today. If you’re going to set up a site that caters to both men and women, you absolutely need to have this category done right. Men need variety, colors, and different sizes than women. Most women want the basics, gold, silver, and platinum with diamonds and jewels. Men don’t always necessarily have to worry about keeping up with the trend. Perhaps when shopping for a mens wedding ring they may want something simple, elegant, and something that is not too complex in terms of ornamental additions.  Again this may not suit you if you sell complex or contemporary styles.

Good Product Photos/Videos

Jewellery is something most people wear for adornment and as such it has to be propped up to look its best. The best way to you can achieve this online with the customer actually feeling this would be in the form of excellent jewellery photos. Simply Suave is one of our old client sites where the photographs are very classy and sets them apart from the others. Product videos although harder to create, would pay off in the longer term as this is the closest people can currently come to experience the product virtually.

Clear Security/ Privacy policy details

Assuming jewellery purchases would be of higher transaction value, trust needs to be established with the customer by ensuring you have security measures in place at the minimum an SSL certificate/ secure payment processing and site scanning where possible. Moreover you have to make this obvious by stating this on your website. Just like any other site clear display of your physical address and contact details adds customer trust.

Sewing Up The Details

At the end of the day, you should look at having a variety of men’s ring across the board. A good jewellery site has easy to navigate sections, and something for everyone. Not just for one type of person, but rather something for everyone. Simple navigation, clearly defined prices, good descriptions, multiple pictures, and selection that caters to both men and women are the key to making a good jewellery website to stand out in the jewellery market place.
