LovePendants Allow Retailers To Tap Millennial Demand for Personalized Jewelry
New York, NY—LovePendants, the engraved gemstone division of Color Story, announces a new partner affiliate program to allow retailers to give Millennial shoppers exactly what they want—literally.
Launched by Color Story’s Robert Leser, LovePendants’ website allows customers to uniquely personalize their jewelry by engraving topaz, amethyst, green quartz, or citrine with a symbol, letter or word that holds special significance. Gemstones are then set in the customer’s metal choice (vermeil, sterling silver or 14k gold) and turned into a necklace, bracelet or charm. The new affiliate program will allow retailers to offer their customers this same ability through their own website.
Using LovePendants’ proprietary technology, retailer affiliate partners can launch the LovePendants design portal within their own website, allowing in-store or online customers to design their own LovePendants jewelry while maintaining the retailer’s own distinct branding. LovePendants will then directly ship the finished product to the customer as the retailer shares the profit.
“Millennial shoppers are proving to be a group that want a sense of collaboration and customization in the things they buy,” says Leser. “Our new affiliate program offers retailers the ability to meet their demands by offering them a new way of selling to them on their terms. By letting Millennials personalize their LovePendants options, retailers show these customers they understand their needs.”
The affiliate program offers exclusivity within a local market on a first-come, first-serve basis. And for customers who discover LovePendants through a specific retailer but orders directly from the LovePendants website, that retailer will still earn profits if the order is placed within their zip code area.
