Challenges

Samwer brothers, owner of Rocket Internet, are known for cloning international startups. However, it needs to be seen how they handle logistics in India, where most of the Indian startups seem to face hurdles. Moreover, it needs to build trust among users who buy precious stones and more so than other e-commerce sites, as the price of the product is much higher than other products.

Closer home, a lot of Indian eCommerce websites are also trying to get into the jewelry market. Recently, Yebhi.com, an eCommerce store operated by Bigshoebazaar, announced that it has acquired stylishyou.in. Cbazaar also plans to introduce fashion jewelry products to its catalog. Apart from that, Juvalia & You, a Berlin-based online fashion jewelry company incubated by Springstar, also launched its Indian operations by opening an India specific portal Juvalia.in.
