Anjolee™! Customize Beautiful Jewelry at Ease!

20 Jun

Anjolee

I have always been amazed about how a jewelry selection occurs.  When looking to buy; you want to be a little knowledgeable; but somehow you always feel intimidated when trying to buy a gift and often left second guessing yourself.

It can be a bit overwhelming when it comes down to knowing your gemstones, white gold, yellow gold, clarity, diamonds…etc.  A buyer wants the experience to be joyous and happy; thinking of that special person you have in mind or for yourself!

This is one of the reasons why I am so impressed with Anjolee™!  Where can I start?  Anjolee™ The Art of Jewelry has a website that allows the buyer to customize jewelry without any intimidation.   Just imagine going into a jeweler and looking without any hassle or pressure! That rarely happens these days.  With technology today it can be done right at home; virtually and seamlessly with Anjolee™!

Curious about the name? Anjolee’s name brand was born when the two founding brothers combined their mother’s angelic nature and her passion for beautiful jewelry.  They used the word “Angel” in the beginning of the word and their mother’s first name “Lee” at the end.  By altering the French word “Jolie” to “Jolee”, they were able to incorporate their mother’s name. The combination produced the name and brand adored today known as Anjolee.

Let’s say if you’re looking for a gemstone bracelet and wanted options in the metal type, gold vs. white, 10K, 14K, 18k.  Sometimes the options are not provided or perhaps you’re not aware of the various differences.  The Anjolee website has the options to make a custom design with ease.

On their website, I was able to use all the tools provided to customize a gemstone bracelet.  I particularly liked the Wavy X Oval Stone bracelet.  With the image, I was able to switch between the metal types, do a 360 degree rotation and even look at the image in HD!

Anjolee™ Wavy  X Oval Stone Bracelet

By having the options at my fingertips, chose 14K white gold and was ecstatic about the number of options for the bracelet length.

 

Usually the standard length is 7.5 inches, however it was nice to see that I could customize it freely.

Finally after reviewing the gemstone options, I chose the gemstone Peridot ( a little history, the Peridot was believed to be a stone of springtime by ancients who considered it a gift from Mother Nature. Napoleon once made a gift of Peridot to Josephine as a symbol of undying love and admiration).

My next choice, the diamond eternity ring!

The 360 degree rotation visuals of the ring, the description of how many stones that would be detailed based on ring size was key and the Anjolee™ Diamond Standards really made a difference in the decision-making.  Throughout the selection process, a specification sheet is shown and HD images that can be downloaded at any time – which is so great when you want to compare jewelry items.  Here I was with my favorite glass of Chardonnay, music in the background and spending time with ease….designing. There are also YouTube Anjolee™ videos available for many of their jewelry selections to help.

So you have customization at your fingertips; with customer reviews to read and a question link readily available!  Customer Service is always available to help – e-mail, Live Chat and a toll-free number.   Anjolee™ even has their very own iPhone & iPad app that allows you to create and customize your very own piece of jewelry that way too!

There are educational links to help in knowing about diamonds, buying and even a glossary of terms. By placing a phone call  – they are happy to help in discussing warranties and other processing for your selection; plus available delivery options.

Pictured below is the eternity ring!  It’s absolutely beautiful!    So for those who are shopping for engagement rings, wedding bands, earrings and much more; Anjolee™ is absolutely an excellent choice!
