NEW YORK, Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Gem Stone King (http://www.gemstoneking.net), an e-commerce retailer based in New York City, has reached a milestone 100,000 positive feedback rating on eBay today. Their rating of 99.9% positive feedback reflects comments left by satisfied jewelry buyers since they began selling on eBay in 2000. In the past 12 months alone they have received over 70,000 feedback comments.
"We are extremely humbled by this achievement," says Nir Hollander, President of Gem Stone King and 4th generation heir to the company. "It says a lot about how our customers appreciate the hard work and dedication our team displays on a daily basis. When I say our team, I refer also to the dedicated professionals who work for eBay, PayPal and ChannelAdvisor assigned to our account whom we could not do without."
Mr. Hollander also made reference to the eBay community in general on banners placed on the company's online listings. "We'd also like to thank the eBay Support team, Technical team and Executive team for their unwavering dedication to our success as well as the success of all sellers and buyers in the eBay community. The combined efforts of eBay and the community make eBay a great place to trade with one another," writes Mr. Hollander.
Mr. Hollander's great grandfather began Gem Stone King operations in Antwerp, Belgium in 1903 as a diamond cutting factory. Mr. Hollander's father, Charles, moved the company to Tel Aviv, Israel in the 1960s and continued operations as a diamond cutter and wholesale dealer of diamonds. In 2000, Mr. Hollander began testing the feasibility of selling diamonds and jewelry online, a concept that was unheard of in the diamond and jewelry industry at the time. Today, Gem Stone King sales are primarily Internet based.
Gem Stone King gained popularity last year on eBay due in part to their Diamond Ring Designer located at http://diamonds.ebay.com and their frequent participation in eBay's Daily Deal feature. The company's product line ranges from inexpensive gemstone jewelry to luxury certified diamond jewelry as well as trendy watches in a variety of price points.
