2019 was the year of the digital age for the jewelry and diamond industry. 2020 is the year where the niche luxury industry invests in mobile apps to enhance jewelry, diamond and gemstone buying and selling experience for consumers and retailers. Here are the top 5 mobile apps we, at ExJewel, think are a must download from your app store:
Pietra is the best marketplace that connects the world’s best jewelers and jewelry designers with people looking to create their own custom fine jewelry. Think Diamond Nile in an app!
Ice – Augmented Reality for jewelry
Ice is the online jewelry retailer that has an augmented reality (AR) component that allows shoppers to virtually “try on” rings and bracelets before purchasing. For people that don’t know what AR is, AR is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input. Download here
GIA for iPad – Your diamond report
GIA is the Gemological Institute of America, the education, laboratory, and research organization that invented the 4Cs. This app is just for retailers to use at the point-of-sale that provides in-depth 4Cs education, how to read a diamond grading report and information on various diamond treatments.
Rapnet – the diamond source
Rapnet is the best diamond mobile app in the market. You can connect to your Rapnet account and get:
- Live diamond prices and reports (The main competitor app is PriceGuide)
- Buy jewelry and diamond
- Find nearby jewelers partners
5- Coeur de Gem
Coeur de gem is the best jewelry application that is available in the market today. It is literally an experience. You can create your own necklace using interactive tools such as click and drop, visualizing live modifications.
ExJewel is not a mobile app but a web app available for both mobile and desktop. No need to download the app. Create your free account, start uploading your first jewelry on ExJewel.io and build your digital vault.
Mobile applications are not common in the jewelry industry, as you can see. But today, innovative technologies such as augmented reality, cloud platforms, and another blockchain will bring birth to new applications beyond what we’ve just seen, directly available on your app store or perhaps on your hands 😉
