NEW YORK, Nov. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Independent fine jewelry stores have a new way to sell their jewelry to a national audience – Kavador.com. Kavador is a curated fine jewelry website selling items that include new, rare and estate pieces sourced from the vaults of local, independent jewelry stores across the country.
Led by a team of five co-founders, three of whom are female, Kavador will go live on Monday November 11, 2015. Together, the team brings over 50 years experience in fine jewelry, tech, and luxury goods and services. Kavador's innovative business approach creates an online fine jewelry marketplace, sourcing and curating fine jewelry from independent jewelry retailers and listing it online under the Kavador brand. This provides retailers with the unique ability to price every item at the most competitive price to a national audience without the risk of disrupting their local brand and pricing model.
A key feature of Kavador is its commitment to curation. Every piece is hand selected, inspected for authenticity and valued by Kavador's in-house team of GIA-certified gemologists. Kavador holds each item for a minimum of sixty-days and ships directly to the customer. Kavador provides feedback and real time data to retailers about trends and buying behavior.
Enhancing The Selection of Fine Jewelry For Consumers
Shopping for fine jewelry is highly fragmented. There are few alternatives for consumers to find pieces they love outside their local jewelry stores or big-brand online retailers. Additional challenges include inconsistencies across authentication. Kavador is not a discount or overstock site, rather a specialty site dedicated to finding the very best fine jewelry and selling it at the very best price with consistent, credible valuations against the industry's highest standards from the GIA.
Improving Inventory Management & Cash Flow For Retailers
"Not only are we making the shopping experience better for consumers, we're making business better for jewelers and designers too," said Jennie Pastor, co-founder and CEO of Kavador. "Kavador offers jewelry stores access to a new market of consumers and therefore a new revenue stream, improving their inventory turnover, cash flow and ultimately their profitability."
Every piece featured on Kavador is carefully inspected and selected by the Kavador team. Co-founder and a veteran in the luxury jewelry business with over 40 years experience, Paul Pastor Snr said, "There is so much incredible jewelry inside the vaults of jewelry stores across America."
"We're opening those vaults and bringing the most exquisite pieces together in one place for women to shop knowing they can see the very best pieces, trust the quality and feel good about the price," said Mr Pastor.
