The following requirements apply to listings in the Jewelry category.

Jewelry image requirements

Sellers must follow the following guidelines for jewelry product images on Amazon.

For main images:

  • Use pure white backgrounds (RGB 255, 255, 255). Where the image is a close-up (example, a pendant necklace) and part of the item extends beyond the image edge, fade out the product at the outermost edge of the image so that the border remains white.
  • Show the actual product (not a graphic or illustration).
  • Don't include borders, watermarks, inset images, logos, or text.
  • Don't include a mannequin or a model.

For all images:

  • Use one of the supported formats: JPEG (.jpg), TIFF (.tif), or GIF (.gif). We prefer JPEG.
  • Images should measure at least 1,000 pixels or larger in either height or width. This minimum size requirement enables zoom function on the website.
  • The image's longest side can be no less than 500 pixels and no more than 2100 pixels.
  • The product must be outside of any packaging or shrink-wrap that obscures the product.
  • The product should occupy at least 80 percent of the image area.
  • The images must only include what the customer will receive. Do not show accessories that are not part of the product.

For additional guidelines and examples of acceptable and unacceptable images for jewelry products, refer to the Jewelry Style Guide.

Maintain jewelry data quality

Complete and accurate jewelry specifications are important to customers' buying decisions. Customers need information to make educated buying decisions. Jewelry shoppers especially, rely heavily on product specifications to narrow selection from the very beginning of their shopping experience. Missing or vague product details can frustrate customers. They might browse to another product or even skip buying altogether. Additionally, ASINs with invalid values for key attributes can't be assigned properly to relevant jewelry browse nodes and refinements, which means customers using these tools can't find them.

With the goal of improving the customer shopping experience in Jewelry, we require several key data fields to be completed for Jewelry products. Specific data requirements vary by product silhouette and the type of materials the product is made from. For detailed instructions on how to populate product specifications properly for Jewelry items, go to Jewelry product data guidelines.

Lastly, all jewelry product listings must meet Amazon's Jewelry Quality Assurance Standards, and sellers should ensure that listings follow FTC guidelines for the jewelry industry. It is each seller's responsibility to ensure all listing data complies with both sets of standards.

Jewelry data requirements

Jewelry data requirements are explained in detail in the Jewelry Data Requirements file. Data requirements are specific to product type (such as FineRing or FashionRing) and vary between Fashion product types and Fine product types. The requirements apply to all Jewelry sellers, regardless of inventory feed method.

This file has 11 tabs: the first shows requirements for product images, the second shows attribute definitions, and the third shows accepted values for each field. The remaining tabs show the specific attribute (field) requirements for each product type.

There are a few important points to keep in mind as you prepare to provide this additional product data:

  • Do not use the Jewelry Data Requirements file as an inventory file template. This document is intended only to highlight the required data elements, not the entire set of data elements that exist in the inventory management tools you currently use. You can find the complete set of data elements in our text-file templates and in XSDs. Continue to use your preferred method of inventory management while focusing on these quality guidelines.
  • Omission of required data will cause an error in the file submission process.
