Jewelry browse node assignments

Jewelry on Amazon is a broad category, with items made from a wide variety of materials and prices ranging from pennies to tens of thousands of dollars. Assigning complete and accurate product data to your products is crucial, because this helps to ensure customers can find your items easily.

The browse tree node you select while creating a product listing for Jewelry items is reflected in the product data as the Item Type Keyword. This applies both if you use Add a Product, or while referencing the Browse Tree Guide to complete the Inventory File template. However, the Item Type Keyword alone does not determine where on the site your item will surface. For an item to surface under the correct browse node and refinement nodes, it must also have an accurate title and valid values for the item's materials and other specifications. Our site merchandisers take into consideration all product data, as well as offer price, to determine the best browse nodes and refinements for items to surface in. We have updated the Jewelry areas of the browse tree.

Refer to the Jewelry browse tree update FAQ for details.
