)-- The facelift provides a fresh and inviting appearance, and a more user-friendly and informative experience to all industry professionals who want to learn more about Polygon and what it will do for their business. The content is “search-engine optimized” (SEO) and provides quick and easy access to the key features that benefit retailers and wholesalers in today’s economic environment. A Quick Search area allows “outsiders” the ability to search the four product databases (diamonds, colored stones, watches, and finished jewelry) for content, but does not reveal price or sourcing data. Extensive, newly-created information showcases the ways Polygon’s thousands of members around the world use the network to increase sales and profits. “Polygon’s new look provides a compelling image of what we have been to the jewelry community for over 20 years: an invaluable, multi-faceted resource,” states Polygon Founder and President, Jacques Voorhees. “It conveys a more up-to-date feel and provides outsiders a better understanding of the value found inside the Polygon community.”
