Ajaline.com Brings Fine Jewelry Up To 70 Percent Off
When high-end jewelers have unsold merchandise, rather than devote valuable case space to sale items, pieces are often moved to “inventory”—a seemingly mythical vault of baubles—or are sometimes repurposed by melting down pieces or re-using stones (though that is often a prohibitively expensive undertaking). Enter Ajaline.com. “This is the one category—fine jewelry—where they haven’t figured out how to go on sale,” says co-founder and jewelry industry veteran, Meeling Wong. “We’re saying the best way is to take it out of the case, out of the brick-and-mortar, and put it online.”
Fortunately, Wong’s 25 years in the business brings with it ties to many storied brands that might be reluctant to trust their names, and pieces, to anyone else. Ajaline.com’s inaugural week features sales from Paolo Costagli, Buccellati, Assael, and Lagos at up to 70 percent off with prices ranging from $200 to more than $40,000. And Ajaline draws on co-founder Jim Conte’s experience as founding Chief Marketing Officer for eLuxury.com to create an environment that makes investing in pricey jewelry online less daunting: personal shoppers with expertise in fine jewelry and watches are available to talk live, shipping is free, and returns are accepted for a refund rather than a credit (less a restocking fee).
Aside from the pieces themselves, one of the most attractive elements is the incentive to refer friends: if they buy something within a year, you get a credit for five percent of the purchase price. Here’s hoping you know someone who is very interested in the Buccellati ladies Siriochron watch with pink diamond dial.
