11 Best WordPress Themes for Jewelry Stores (2017)
In this day and age of online shopping and mega online stores, like Amazon, even the ‘mom and pop’ shops need at least an online presence, aka a website, if not an online store. This fact is certainly true for items as visually beautiful as jewelry. But, where do you start? Read on for the 11 Best WordPress Themes for Jewelry Stores.
Artificer, the only free design on our list, comes directly from the e-commerce website builders, WooCommerce. You can’t beat price tag as a small business owner. Built with the same WooFramework as all of their paid-for themes, Artificer has several color palettes for you to choose. It also has a:
- customizable homepage
- sticky note to highlight special messages
- sale banner
- mini-features column
As a fully responsive theme, Artificer responds and adapts to any device for optimal viewing. While you create only one simple design, there’s no need for multiple or specialized CSS files. Additionally, the plugins are just as easy to use. All of your favorite WooCommerce plugins are styled to match the Artificer theme seamlessly.
So, what’s the downside? Since the Artificer theme is free, there’s no WooCommerce support. To gain technical help from WooCommerce, you still need to use one of their paid-for themes. That means, if you get stuck, you’re on your own. Not a big deal for the small business owner with a web background or a web designer/web developer on staff. If not, you may want to spring for a theme that includes support.
The Divi theme comes with a real-time editor that lets you ‘build anything visually,’ just as Elegant Themes states.

Divi is also fully responsive for all your mobile shoppers and comes with more than 20 different customizable layouts.
Powered by Elegant Themes’ Divi Builder, Divi is an easy-to-use, intuitive website builder (otherwise known as a front-end editor). You can change column widths right on the screen with its drag-and-drop capabilities or add a column or other content from its 46 different content elements.
Also among the content elements are global elements for items you want on every page or across several pages of your website. Set or edit a global element once and it changes on every page. All of Divi’s capabilities cut down on editing and publishing time, perfect for a small business. These features are what make Divi one of the 11 best WordPress themes for jewelry stores.
