Bangkok based gemstone specialist Star Lanka have launched a new subsidiary B2C marketplace platform known as JewelryReady.
The platform connects jewellery designers to leading gemstone dealers providing the consumer with unique and bespoke creations. “The biggest hurdle every designer faces is investing in gemstones,” says Suhail Salahudeen, Founder of JewelryReady and Gem Consultant of Star Lanka. “In an industry where the purchase of gems and jewellery requires capital investment in inventory and metals, JewelryReady provides designers access to a full range of gemstones, and the jewellery is made to order when there is a successful sale.”
The focus is on creating exceptionally crafted fine jewellery in 18k gold. “We help consumers select the finest gemstones together with a range of designs, taking them through the jewellery manufacturing process with efficiency and ease,” he says. Fine gemstones include certified natural rubies, sapphires, emeralds to Paraiba tourmalines, all colours of garnets and beryls. Gems are set into designs using built-in artificial intelligence software, providing designers multiple options to showcase a range of gemstone alternatives to potential clients. “This advanced technology allows the gems to be placed into the designs, thus generating a realistic 3D CAD representation of the finished jewelry,” added Salahudeen.
JewelryReady has announced new collaborations with emerging artists like Iranian born Mina Ameri of Mina Jewelry, Narges Zand and Thai designer Bhornnipa Thongkome of Bhorn Jewelry. “These first three talented designers all have integrity and individual style in their creative process.”
JewelryReady is currently looking to partner with more designers, inviting passionate amateurs and freelance creators in the effort to further expand their portfolio and outreach.
Salahudeen chose the first round of designers based on their sketches and aesthetics. Every individual that joins JewelryReady is vetted by the company’s team of gemstone and jewellery production experts. The JewelryReady platform provides them their own profile page, individual maker’s mark, and links to their social media channels, which they can cross-promote, and receive exposure. Salahudeen explained “our team helps with listing the designs on our website. Buyers can contact designers directly from their page for custom projects and we help to promote their work for sale.”
“Designers have full control and rights to their creations.” Moving forward, JewelryReady plans to add more talented jewellery artists and expand on collections.
The Process Designers provide their sketches or 3D CAD to JewelryReady and their work is set with gemstones on the platform.
● Designers will receive 5% commission on the gem value sold ● And an additional creator’s fee of their choice
JewelryReady will also invite verified trade members to list their precious stones and jewellery on the platform. “The gems listed by the traders can be set into all the designs. There is an open catalogue of gems and design options which consumers can choose from.”
The JewelryReady platform will launch additional features including:
- Loose gemstones – an assortment of loose gemstones and diamonds are available in the categories of colored stones, white and coloured natural diamonds, natural pearls and cultured pearls. Laboratory reports are included with selected stones.
- Jewellery Designer’s Directory – helping collaborators expand their outreach. Each has their own profile, design catalogue with gemstones and links to their social media channels.
- Ready to wear jewellery – the platform will also have a collection of ready-to-wear jewellery aimed at the modern-day fine jewellery lover.
Entries are now being accepted, inviting passionate amateurs and freelance jewellery designers to participate.
Once you complete the designer verification process, the JewelryReady team will assist you with creating your page, and list your chosen designs on the JewelryReady website.
