Jewelry Website Designers was created to meet a critical need within the gemstone and jewelry trade. Until its formation, no website design group existed solely for the purpose of building exceptional websites for the trade. Our industry speaks a particular language to our market, whether we are b2b or b2c. Only those within this trade understand how to articulate this message correctly. JWD is also in the trade. Our creative team includes the most recognized journalist in the jewelry industry. We have a veteran GIA graduate gemologist on tap. We are supported by expert jewelry graphics designers with years of experience in our business. Our back-end developer understands how to build a site that your unique customer will respond to.
Never settle for off-shore developers who neither understand our unique business nor are able to articulate it to your market. We are proud American developers--easily accessible when you need to speak to us. See our Contact Us page for our east-coast hours of operation during normal business days.
