iJeweler Names Top 25 Industry Sites
Commercial auction sites, major jewelry retailers, innovative suppliers and trade-affiliated networks were among the Web sites named as winners of iJeweler's Top 25 Jewelry Industry Websites contest.
Winners included consumer sites, from Internet retailers (Tradeshop.com) and traditional jewelers (iQVC, Fortunoff) to new consumer influences (eBay), as well as trade sites (Stuller Settings, GIA Online, GemKey and Polygon). ProfessionalJeweler.com was also named to the list.
iJeweler, an Internet marketing consulting firm based in Austin, TX, chose the winners from nominations by readers of the company's e-mail newsletter and members of on-line jewelry communities. The winners are a showcase of industry sites that are "doing something right on-line," according to iJeweler's report.
