Hello – I understand from your (very well researched and written) article that jewelry sales on Rakuten and Overstock are not significant. Is that across the board or does it apply only to expensive jewelry ? I have a friend who sells less expensive fine jewelry (silver, pearls, etc.) on Rakuten and Overstock and she claims she is doing OK.

Dear Ernie,

Thank you for the question and apologies for the delay, seems like we’ve missed the comment.

We have quite precise statistics (unfortunately not too optimistic) on items in fine jewelry category, with the average price tag of $100 and up. For cheaper items, the marketplaces do perform better, still w/o being the top of the list.

Hope it helps!

Best regards,

Do you know of any websites where I can design and sell jewelry from using and ecommerce platform?

Amazon Handmade seems to only really cater for USA crafters. They really need to be global in order to force Etsy to up their game. I’ve been looking to join Amazon Handmade for about a year now and I don’t find it particularly useful for me as I’m based in the UK.

Dear Orchid,

You are right, making the Amazon marketplace work for you is never easy 🙂 With that, Amazon Handmade is much more easy to join, especially considering the Fine Jewelry. We see sellers also from Europe/Asia being successful there. It does require special effort, but in many cases it’s worth it.
In addition, establishing your jewelry store on AH is an potential step-in into the global Amazon marketplace. As you might know, the recent requirements to sell fine jewelry include previous history of selling on Amazon, and here AH can do a good work for you. Once you apply to Fine Jewelry category you will have the required record.

Hope it helps!

Dear Saer

Looks like your comment didn’t get the appropriate attention, my apologies for this.
To your question:
eBay and Etsy can work well with the price range you mentioned, but it’s not enough to see the whole picture.
Pricing is definitely one of the important factors when selecting the marketplace for your jewelry. With that it’s not the only one. Additional factors such as product style, materials, your location, logistics, and other influence this decision.
In addition, each platform has its own characteristics, limitations, rules (f.i. Amazon doesn’t allow selling clarity treated diamonds, to sell on Sears you need a US company etc…)

We have summarized some of our knowledge about in an article”How to choose the right marketplace to sell jewelry?” , probably it can be very helpful for you.

The most right thing to do is to make the profiling of your business and your products, decide based on the complete picture. I warmly invite you to get in touch with us and we will gladly have a more in-depth conversation and share from our knowledge.

I have a lot of costume, fashion rings that I would love to sell. They have been appraised and range from $15-$25. Not expensive items but very pretty and affordable. But where and how can I sell them? I just have aquired too many, and of course my oldest daughter doesnt “do rings” and my other children are too young to keep them around. I have close to 75-100 rings. Any suggestions ??? I don’t mind selling in a bulk type situation or at a lower price than appraised. I just am trying to only keep things I wear /need(since they say decluttering helps with overall happiness) sorry, this is a long message….in summation….any advice for me to make some money with realistic expectations? Thanks for taking time to read my comment.

Dear Brooke

Thank you for your question.

From our perspective, selling jewelry online is a strategical move, not a one-time action. The right operation means establishment of the online stores, marketing etc…

If you look to occasionally sell a fixed amount of jewelry (75-100 rings are not a wholesale qty), I would recommend to offer the whole lot to the local jeweler, of try to return the items to the store you’ve purchased it from and get some (partial) refund for its cost. Another option is to create a home sale party for your friends – this will be much more profitable and fun 🙂

Hope this helps,
