10 of the Best Jewelry Affiliate Programs to Shine in 2020

Hello there Sea Changers. Welcome back to my series of program lists to assist those of you looking to fund your sea change with affiliate marketing. Today we will have a sparkly look at 10 of the best jewelry affiliate programs to shine in 2020. Jewelry is a vast niche with so many variations to choose from and promote making it a fantastic area to get into online.

Keeping that in mind, as I run through them I am conscious that as this is potentially such a large niche, that the number of affiliate programs to choose from may be just as large. So how have I picked my best 10? Well… I really just wanted to give you a good cross section of what is out there so I did some searching around and checked a few out and chose them by looking at:

  • What they offer
  • Commission rates
  • Payment terms
  • Cookie duration
  • Application processes
  • Affiliate/Marketing materials provided

Before we start however, let’s have a look at what I mean by the term jewelry and how it can be incorporated within an affiliate marketing website…

What do we mean by jewelry?

Look, silly question I know, and to be honest, the more I looked into this, the more I realized that I could probably split this genre into two or three sub posts covering different aspects of jewelry. So for this post I have tried to cover a good cross section across some of the sub niches such as:

  • General jewelry
  • Luxury/fashion jewelry
  • Costume jewelry
  • Collectibles

And of course anything else that you may incorporate when you think of jewelry.

What can affiliate marketers promote?

There are essentially no real barriers to what affiliate marketers can promote when it comes to jewelry. There are however some things to be aware of as you run your eye over affiliate program possibilities that may suit your site. These are:

  1. Know your audience, some purchasers are looking for specifics (such as wedding pieces) whilst others are hoping to look good on a budget. Choose your affiliate sites accordingly.
  2. Purchasers of high end/expensive jewelry will not take risks if they don’t trust you or your affiliate site. Make sure the programs you choose are reputable and have good recourse options if the purchaser is not happy.
  3. Professionals and collectors want clear, precise information with features and benefits highlighted – and you will need to make sure you have the language right.

That said, stats show that people will spend money on jewelry online if it can make their lives easier so as long as you are solving problems, then you are on the right track. And to give you a boost, let’s have a look at 10 programs that I have found below:

ItsHot.com

Best Jewelry Affiliate Programs - itshot

Let’s start with the high end bling. ItsHot.com promise the “hottest items at guaranteed lowest prices” with a massive range of gold, silver and diamond jewelry.

Their entire range is too large to list here but does include:

  • Rings
  • Chains and necklaces
  • Bracelets
  • Watches
  • Earrings
  • Cuff Links
  • Brooches
  • Estate Jewelry
  • Hip hop jewelry
  • Body Jewelry

To be honest, unless you are an absolute expert, I would probably not be going with this site alone due to the high cost of the products involved however it is a great site to incorporate upsells to your site. That said, if you are in the wedding, luxury or diamond niches, then this site has a great range to choose from and talk about within your posts – especially as the site shows the discount savings on their products pages – a great selling point.

                    Sterling Luck

                    Best Jewelry Affiliate Programs - sterling luck

                    Sterling Luck is a smaller site that focuses on lucky charms etc. with its affordable range of sterling silver jewelry. Surprisingly, lucky charms and luck related jewelry has quite a decent following making this a great little site to add to any niche. Their products include

                    • Bracelets
                    • Charms
                    • Earrings
                    • Rings

                    This site is probably not large enough to fill a niche site on its own but as I have stated earlier, there are a number of niches that this site could benefit as a side note – e.g. posts like “get that lucky charm for your wedding, anniversary, that exam” etc. I think you see what I mean… there is also a good little section of this site where it explains what lucky charms are and why they are considered lucky making for great assistance information for the examples outlined above.

                    Harry Potter Jewelry

                    Best Jewelry Affiliate Programs - harry potter

                    Ok, so I have included this site for two reasons… 1. I really just wanted to give an example of the large market for costume type jewelry there is out there and 2. The term “Harry Potter jewelry” actually attracts over 1000 searches online per month. I have taken my information here from the main Harry Potter site however there are numerous sites out there that provide this type of jewelry. Their products include

                    • Pendants
                    • Charms
                    • Rings
                    • Necklaces
                    • Broaches
                    • Pins

                    Best Jewelry Affiliate Programs - harry potter stripe

                    As I have said, there are jewelry sites for so many other hobby and fan based themes such as Minecraft, War Craft and the Marvel universe. This make these types of sites great additions to hobby or fan based niche sites of any kind.

                    Application required?: Yes – The Harry Potter’s affiliate program is managed by CJ Affiliates. You will be required to apply for an account and then for the Warner Brothers affiliate program. You will need to enter personal and website information as well as promotional plans and platforms to be used.

                    Note: The Harry Potter site is a part of the Warner Brothers program giving you, as an affiliate, access to a large range of Warner brothers related products to promote on your site if applicable.

                    Amazon associates

                    Alternatively, should you wish to set up your site up with a range from a few different brands or companies on the same site then you can do so via Amazon. Amazon provides access to a good range of jewelry related products and has a fairly good affiliate program as well. So if you wish, join the Amazon Associates program, locate the relevant products/pieces within Amazon itself and you can post links on your own site as per below:

                    Amazon’s commission rates are nowhere near as high as some of the programs listed above (4 – 7%) however some prefer this avenue due to the sheer amount of traffic and trustworthiness that comes with a company site of this size.

                    How to find your own affiliate programs

                    As stated earlier, by outlining the sites above I have really just tried to give you a good cross section of the types of programs that are out there by listing the really good ones in each ‘category’. That does not mean that you cannot find affiliate programs that better suit what it is that you are trying to do within this space – especially as I could never even begin to cover every jewelry related requirement or sub niche in the one post. Luckily for us, there is a simple way to find these programs online.

                    All you need to do is enter “affiliate: niche type” into your search engine (substituting ‘niche type‘ for whatever product it is that you are choosing to sell).

                    Best Jewelry Affiliate Programs - affiliate jewelry

                    We can even dig a little deeper with a more specific sub niche related search

                    Best Jewelry Affiliate Programs - chakra affiliate

                    There are jewelry related affiliate programs for everything else that we have listed at the top of this page as well – you will just need to have a look around until you find one or two that suit your site. Once you have completed your searches, you can look through and find programs that:

                    • Relate to your niche/problems that you are solving.
                    • Have quality products – your brand can be severely damaged if you promote poor quality products.
                    • Have solid payment and customer service arrangement.
                    • Pay decent commissions.
                    • Have good testimonials covering commission payouts and quality of product.

                    In most cases, you will need to apply for the program before you are allowed to promote their products – don’t take this step lightly or you will be rejected. Affiliate programs will generally want to know:

                    • Your website name.
                    • Traffic levels.
                    • Why you want to join – (so I can make money by selling your nose rings is unfortunately not generally a good enough answer).
                    • How you plan to promote their products.

                    Conclusion

                    So… There are 10 of the best jewelry affiliate programs to work with in 2020.
