Category Changes: Jewelry & Watches

April 2014

Please check the table below to see if the categories you sell in are changing. If we are making a change to your category, please make sure your current listings are updated with all relevant item specifics -- this ensures your items are moved to the best possible category in the case where categories are going away. Occasionally we ask you to adopt a value in an item specific to help us facilitate moving your item to the correct surviving or newly created category. We offer additional item specifics recommendations for optimal search visibility as well. After the changes are live, please review your listings again.

• Many categories under Handcrafted, Artisan Jewelry being replaced with new item specifics (Metal, Metal Purity, Main Stone, Material, and Style).
• New and renamed categories under Jewelry Tools category.
• Redesign of the Loose Beads category structure resulting in many categories being replaced with item specifics and many new categories introduced.
