JewelryChannel Goes On-Line
JewelryChannel, an Internet network that partners jewelry suppliers and retailers, opened its Web doors this week after delaying its scheduled launch date by several weeks.
The site caters to both consumers and the trade, and includes accessing a complete list of retail jewelers and jewelry "showrooms" of suppliers' products with links to the jewelers who carry them. Retail members have their own Web pages with driving directions and maps, store profiles and lists of favorites. There's also an estate jewelry marketplace and a trading channel for trade members.
Trade members can register for a free password or become "Platinum" members to receive "storefront" Web sites and free Gemventory inventory management software from JewelryChannel. Visit www.jewelrychannel.com for more information.
