As we are all aware, mobile phones have become a dominant aspect of our lives. These electronic devices are used by people of all ages and allow us to complete a number of tasks on the move, with online shopping being just one of them. Thousands of people use their phones to shop for groceries, clothes or other everyday items encouraging a new trend to emerge.
Thanks to the creation of apps, such as the Serendipity Diamonds i-Phone app, consumers are now able to shop for diamond jewellery and other exclusive items via their mobiles. The added convenience that this offers is a huge attraction for customers and allows even the highest quality products to be purchased quickly and easily.
The popularity of this app has led it to experience almost 10,000 downloads – demonstrating how consumers are eager to view and purchase diamond earrings and other items of jewellery from the comfort of their own home. The app is also free to download and that means customers are not inconvenienced with an additional charge.
Engaging with customers through technology is something that has become more pronounced in recent years as social media sites have continued to exert their dominance over the public. Many businesses now use these sites to interact with their customers, offering an additional form of contact that is both more convenient and less formal.
The benefit of this is that the use of social media or mobile browsing is not restricted to a specific group of individuals. Whilst using mobile phones to shop may be something associated with younger generations there is no reason why those of discerning taste with a higher disposable income can’t enjoy it too.
Most adults now own mobile phones, embracing the technology as ardently as the younger generations. The ability to shop from the convenience of your home is something many multitasking women will appreciate, offering them a great way to purchase all the things they need and want whilst completing other tasks simultaneously.
The end result of this is that the nature of shopping is changing. Whilst customers previously spent hours scouring different stores for the perfect gift they can now view the same items whilst sat at home, saving them valuable time.
This is especially useful for those looking to buy engagement rings. As 2012 is a leap year, many women may find themselves preparing to ask this pivotal question themselves and that means they will be in need of an engagement ring.
Of course, an engagement isn’t the only occasion which warrants the purchase of such beautiful jewellery and married women may want to celebrate a pivotal anniversary with a diamond-based gift whilst others may simply feel they deserve a treat.
Whatever the motivation, with the ability to shop from your living room now available, there is no reason why any woman should be without her own fantastic piece of diamond jewellery.
