Amherst, NH (PRWEB) May 24, 2006 -–
There are thousands of websites offering vintage jewelry, so what makes Vintagejewelryonline.com so different?
It’s a combination of three elements. The first is showcasing rare and hard to find vintage and estate jewelry located from all over the world. The second is an easy to use system using slick search engine technology and lastly, “Virtual Touch and Feel” that provides powerful photography and unique displays to showcase these exclusive pieces.
“I live in New England and although I have pickers from all over the US, Canada and Europe, it is New England, an area rich in Victorian, Georgian and all eras of history, that boasts some of the finest jewelry and accessories worn and used by women and men. Items I think of as “pretty pleasures,” says Shelley Osborne the owner of Vintage Jewelry Online.com.
Vintage Jewelry Online.com specializes in one of a kind items that aren’t readily available. “Not only does Shelley unearth hard to find items, they are desirable,” says, Mary Di Maria, owner of Burlwood Antique Center in Meredith NH, one of the shops in which Shelley displays her hard to find items. “She is one of the top jewelry sellers we have in the shop because she has such a great eye and our customers fall in love with her jewelry. Our clientele is very particular and Shelley’s jewelry pleases them tremendously. So it was critical the focus of her online boutique showcase the jewelry to its fullest beauty and richness.”
“Virtual Touch and Feel” is the next best thing to actually being in a real store where you can touch and feel the pieces,” says Shelley “The importance of sharp, crystal clear, close up photography, with multiple views all seen at the same time, is crucial for an on-line shopping spree and shouldn’t be underestimated.” These and the enlightening descriptions need to substitute for the “touch me, feel me” experience of traditional shopping.
With thousands of vintage jewelry sites on the internet, Shelley is excited and passionate about making this the preeminent vintage boutique. “Time is of the essence so you see these large photos showing multiple views and all dimensions at the same time. Then you can skim the page and not get bogged down in detail unless you want to,” she explains. Each item also has an overview side bar box containing critical information about the piece. Key words are bolded in the description for effortless browsing. The instructive descriptions impart history, time and place of the jewelry as well as describe its magical allure.
Osborne’s search engine is modeled after the slick high-tech search engines that are used by the biggest on-line auction sites. “You can do quick searches or advanced searches by virtually any criteria as you perfect your jewelry and accessory hunting experience.”
But it’s not just about technology. “The more you know the better you are able to evaluate and build collections that withstand the test of time. These are the collections that get passed down from generation to generation,” says, Shelley.
To help her clients build their collections she offers, Vintage Jewelry Unleashed, an on-line informative newsletter that offers tips and trends and resources on collecting jewelry. She also encourages questions; telephone calls and has a “wish list” service for those hard to find items someone is searching for and contacts people immediately when she finds those special items.
