There are many online sites which sell designer jewellery to the individual customer and to retailers. You can shop on online sites that advertise themselves as wholesale designer jewellery suppliers, even though you may not want to buy a lot of wholesale jewellery. You can always check out these sites such as The Jewellery Channel and look for the type of designer jewellery that you like; there are sites which specialize in Italian glass jewellery, or Austrian crystal, those that specialize in Tiffany or designer jewellery and those that sell antique-style jewellery with stones such as marquisite featuring in the items to give them the Victorian look.
If you have a retail site or a traditional shop or stall in a market, then this is a very cheap way of buying stock. Alternatively you might just want to buy items for yourself and friends and family, and sites allow you to do this, although you should remember that the more you buy, the cheaper it will be.
Some sites sell jewellery from Thailand and China and these are probably the cheapest online sites. However you can get gold and diamond jewellery items including anklets, toe rings, body jewellery for piercings, whatever you want is out there. All you have to do is go through the online catalogues and put items in your shopping basket or cart.
When you get to the checkout your purchases will be calculated and you will be asked for contact details and your preferred payment method. You can choose to pay through PayPal or any other online method or take advantage of drop shipping services.
Drop shipping is a way of protecting your payment; you deposit money in a third party account and this is released when you receive your goods. You should consider which way you would like to pay and only give out your details on sites which are secure. This is shown in the bottom right hand corner, usually and the symbol to look for is the lock.
Shopping online is now more secure than it used to be so you can be fairly comfortable about not being ripped off. Take a look at some of the sites that offer wholesale jewellery and pick up some real bargains.
