Do you have a natural gift for spotting quality pieces of jewelry? Have you ever considered learning how to sell jewelry online?
If so, let me show you how you can get started creating your very own online jewelry store today.
I’ll admit, I have very little experience with jewelry, but I do know a thing or two about selling products online.
And jewelry is a perfect product for those that love and know jewelry.
Now many people have the conception that in order to sell something online, you actually need to buy inventory and then sell it in an online store.
You can do this, but then you have products to buy, some form of inventory, shipping to deal with, and the risk that your jewelry pieces might not sell.
But this doesn’t have to be the case.
With affiliate marketing, you can hand pick pieces of jewelry from some of the largest retail jewelry stores online, like Kay’s Jewelry or Gordon’s Jewelers for example.
Then sell their pieces directly on your own website.
How does this work? you may be asking yourself…
Well, with affiliate marketing, you can sign up to be an affiliate with any number of jewelry stores.
Then you can list their products on your website and when you make a sale, you receive a commission.
Affiliate marketing is a great way to create an online jewelry store because you have no inventory (meaning no risk), no shipping (less work), and you can list thousands of products on your own website which you can earn commissions from.
The commissions with Kay’s Jewelry are up to 7%.
So if you sold this Sofia Vergara diamond ring shown below and you received a 7% commission, you would make $27.93.
Imagine if you had 30 to 40 sales a day.
You could potentially make between $500 to $1,000 dollars per day.
Let’s Breakdown How This Works
Let’s take Kay’s Jewelry for example, with Kay’s they use an affiliate network called Commission Junction to manage their tracking, reporting, and payment of all affiliate commissions.
All you have to have is a website that is based on jewelry and apply to be a affiliate with them through Commission Junction. Once approved, you will have the ability to sell from all of Kay’s brand jewelers. Here’s a few brands you’ll have at your disposal..
- Neil Lane Bridal
- The Leo Diamond
- Le Vian
- Open Hearts by Jane Seymour
- Charmed Memories
- Scott Kay
- Shades of Wonder
- Bulova, and many more.

How to Sell Jewelry Online? – Let’s Get You Started
Now that you understand that you don’t actually need to buy jewelry in order to sell it online, what’s the next step?
Build a website –With affiliate marketing, a website is one of the critical pieces you will need to develop a successful online jewelry business.
In order to affiliate yourself with Kay’s for example, you need to submit your site directly to Commission Junction.
So having your own website is imperative.
Don’t let this intimidate you if you don’t know how to build a website.
You can easily get a website put together in just a few minutes.
For free websites, I use the site builder called Siterubix.

How To Generate Sales in Affiliate Marketing
In order to generate affiliate commissions from your website, you will need a professional looking website as well as traffic coming to your store.
If you don’t have traffic, you’ll never see any sales.
How to Build Traffic? – Traffic is built through two methods.
1.) Paid advertising using services like Facebook Advertising, Google Adwords, or Bing Ads.
Paid advertising is also called Pay-Per-Click or PPC advertising.
It can be an effective method to bring traffic to your site.
But you need to know what you’re doing or you can lose money if you’re not generating sales.
This is not the method I recommend to those that are new to internet marketing or advertising. You really need to be trained on how to do this correctly or you could end up losing a lot of money.
2.) The second method to gain traffic is by creating quality content that is based on your pieces of jewelry.
This is known as Organic Traffic.
By understanding how to rank your content in search engines like Google, you will bring in free traffic to your site.
Both methods can be used in conjunction to bring in tons of visitors to your site.
If you can create traffic that is based on what online users are already looking for..
- Specific styles or brands of jewelry
- How to recognize quality jewelry
- Your personal take on specific pieces of jewelry
You’ll have plenty of traffic to your site which will lead to… drum roll please… Online Sales!
What Does It Take To Build A Successful Online Jewelry Site?
When putting together an eCommerce site, you really want to build it correctly from the ground up.
There are a good amount of website builders out there to help put up an eCommerce store.
However, as mentioned above, building an online business to sell jewelry takes more than just a pretty website.
You will need to learn how to…
- Manage your website
