The New (& Vastly Improved) CJEX.net
So many of you tell us how much you love our CJEX.net. We endeavor to keep it up to date, load new pieces every day & enjoy connecting with you via email. But, and I don’t say this very often, a good thing just got better 🙂
We have been working with our web developer over the past 6 months to create a new website with amazing new features and we launched it just this past Tuesday. Here’s what all the fuss is about:
Bigger & better photos of our jewelry
We have a full time photographer who does nothing all day except individually photograph every piece of jewelry we have for sale. We have enlarged the size of the photos on the listings page…but don’t worry, you can still zoom in more if you click on the photo. On the page dedicated to that item you will find a larger image, more views and a complete description of the ring, necklace, earrings or bracelet. We are working on a feature that will show complementary or matching pieces (which will be hand picked for accuracy. No automated matches here!!!)
Simple, simple, simple
On the product listings page, we have eliminated excess wording & text. You will see simply the photo, the price, the item number, and a brief title. Our hopes are that you will see more of the jewelry and less clutter!
You’ll notice a light grey filter bar just above the jewelry photos. This is the place to sort out inventory according to what you would like to see. For example, if you are in engagement rings, you can choose to look at those that are set complete with center diamonds or ring settings only (rings that still need you to select a center diamond). You can also sort by style- if you only want to see three stone rings or halo rings, you got it!
This is also the place to sort by color of gold, price, designer or ring size.
Create your own CJEX account
This is a huge change on our new website. Simply click on the “Sign In” button in the top navigation bar and then click “Register”. With your email address and simple password, you can login to your own CJEX account. The benefits to signing up are amazing:
- You can set up a wishlist of pieces that you love (so you don’t have to go hunting for them next time you are online). You can also easily see if a piece you were looking at has sold (instead of just disappearing on you).
- You can enter special dates so if your hubby comes in to purchase that something special from your wishlist, we can remind him of the date 🙂
- There is a special provision within your account to have a conversation with us! By clicking on the “Messages” tab, you can ask us questions, make requests (even ask us for a photo of the item(s) you are looking at on a model) and you can see the back and forth conversation in one spot (without going through email).
- You can keep track of current and past orders placed online.
Last Call is easy
In the past we have put all the pieces that we are open to offers on in the Last Call section of our website. But now we’ve made it easy- we have lowered the price on these pieces as low as we will go. There are some incredible pieces and deals to be had and remember: there are only one of each piece so if you are contemplating a purchase from these heavily discounted pieces, act quickly! All last call items are a final sale.
We have been working round the clock to get this site up and running as soon as possible…but it was a lot of fun. We hope you love it as much as we do!
