Blue Nile Optimistic For Increase in Diamond Sales

09 june 2012

Profits of the internet jewelry giant Blue Nile have suffered in the last year. The company also recorded an increase of 5% in sales in 2011, totaling $348 million. The price of Blue Nile shares, which reached a high of $100 in September 2007, dropped to $29.75 last Friday, Globes reported cited by
One of the factors that contributed to the reduced profits of Blue Nile was the sharp increase in the cost of polished diamonds, which reduced its relative advantage over other companies. Despite this, diamond industry experts predict that price inflation will end this year and believe it likely that the company will soon return to successful earning results.
The Blue Nile corporate model is markedly different from other jewelry companies, as it only purchases the diamonds after it receives an order from a consumer and is paid for the order within days. This business model allows it to reduce the cost of items by approximately 20-25% compared to brick-and-mortar jewelry stores.
