Most have people have heard the saying "like trying to find a
needle in a haystack' - well it could apply to trying to find that secial piece

Shopping for jewellery at the best of times can be a frustrating
experience, going from shop to shop, looking at display case after display case
of all types of beautiful jewellery but not quite the standout piece you
Shopping for jewellery online offers its own set of challenges.
Yes you have the advantage of being at home in comfortable shoes and no crowds
to bustle you but there are infinitely more stores and infinitely more pieces
of jewellery online to search. Whilst in can also be fun, browsing different
online jewellery sites it generally starts to become a chore after a while and
your enthusiasm to find that elusive stunning necklace or pendant or bracelet
begins to wane.
Some tips to help you get there quicker can be;
Try long search terms - instead of silver bracelet
for example type in 'silver bracelet heavy link chain with diamante
charms' if that is closer to what you are looking for than just
'silver bracelet' - or instead of searching for 'jewellery online'
you might try 'sterling silver jewellery online under $100' if you
want sterling silver and are on a budget or looking for a bargain.
Sometimes the longer and more detailed the search term the sooner
you will narrow down the options to something closer to what you
are looking for. This is of course subject to the store selling
that particular jewellery online having entered a good descrition
of the item. However it is certainly worth a try.
Try online jewellery blogs in addition to or in
lieu of regular search pages, i.e. regular online jewellery stores.
Often case bloggers offering jewellery online under that search
category will be artisans who make unique items of jewellery. This
type of search can often reveal beautiful pieces, pendants,
earrings and rings in particular that you will certainly not find
in regular stores. Many of the blog site owners are in fact
jewellery designers that offer the same hand made designer items,
that are found in up market stores and galleries, for sale online
and generally at good prices. Buying one of these designer pices of
jewellery online pretty much ensures you have a on-off, unique
item. Blogs can often also network to online jewellery websites for
specials and so on.
Try Images search - in search for jewellery online
in iamges search, which is in the toolbar at the top of the search
page as an option, you will be presented with a large number of
images of jewellery items highlighted by Google that are selected
from a broad spectrum of online jewellery sites. This often can
show up an item that is similar to what you are looking for which
could be an indicator that the site to whicjh the image belongs may
indeed have that special jewellery piece for you. Clicking on the
image brings up an option that allows you to go to that particular
jewellery online website.
The key really is to be diverse in your searching methods - keep typing in
different keywords and longer search terms and try different search pages like
blogs and images - mix it up a little so that during a session online searching
for your special jewellery item will be far less boring and more
Hope this helps - enjoy your search dfor that elusive special item and your
online jewellery shopping.
