Zaamordiamonds.com, owned by a 116-year-old jewellery brand Vummidi Bangaru Jewellers (VBJ), offers the largest collection of solitaire diamonds that's conflict free and 100% certified. The store brings an array of BIS Hallmark jewellery, both antique and trendy collections, that showcases excellent craftsmanship with strikingly exquisite designs.
Zaamor Diamonds was looking out for a UI and UX design solution that encourages its users to interact with the brand better, improve the level of shopping experience and ROI.
The existing design philosophy wasn't reflecting the brands rich legacy and value. Zaamor Diamonds was concerned about the level of user experience its ecommerce website was offering as the traffic wasn't just enough for the brand to make users buy their collection of diamond jewellery.
In order to derive a UX design plan that strikes a chord with the expectations of users, Contus had to plunge into research on user behaviour, define metrics, measure them, analyze and map results with the experience design planning. Create a UI and visual appeal that's spectacular enough to reflects the rich brand value and legacy of the 116 year old retail jewellery giant.
Contus adopted a strategic approach to figure out the user experience that could best serve the brand.
Zaamor Diamonds, a jewellery retail wing owned by century old group VBJ, wanted creative solutions to refine the UI and UX of its online ecommerce store which is catered to exquisite diamond jewellery enthusiasts across the globe.
Contus' creative team took on the challenge of designing a UX and UI that's welcomed by the target audience and rendered a researched based solution that perfectly business owners' objectives.
