Welcome to www.silvergobi.com, home of some of the world’s most exotic silver jewelry! We bring you the finest silver jewelry from around the world, including such faraway places as Bali, Thailand, and India. We import only the best quality, so that you, our customer, will be more than satisfied with your purchase. Your satisfaction with our products is guaranteed by our noquestions-asked return policy.
Thank you for visiting our new and improved website. We have just updated it, in order to give you a better experience navigating the various pages. Following are some key changes that we have made to our website, partially based on visitor feedback. Such feedback is vital to our company, as such input helps us to grow and improve. It helps us to provide you with a better shopping experience. We really appreciate and value comments from all our visitors. Your opinions are valued!
Some of our website shoppers were of the opinion that our website lacked visual appeal. As a result, we have made some changes to the visual aspect of our site. We have modified the homepage, so that there is not as much information on it as before. Instead of putting so much on one page, we have provided links for our site visitors. Now, you will notice a cleaner, visually more appealing homepage, with links to other pages and topics. The links are located at the bottom right of the homepage.
Another modification to our website is fonts and font sizes. Again, several visitors indicated that legibility was lacking, so we decided to stop using a cursive font. We are now limiting the fonts to non-cursive, and font size will be a minimum of 12 points. This will make the information on our web pages easier to read. Having a larger font size will definitely contribute towards better readability for all our visitors. You will now notice that all descriptions, as well as the prices, will be much easier to read.
Once again, we would like to thank all the visitors to our site who gave us their constructive feedback. It was invaluable in allowing us to make much needed improvements. We hope that the changes will allow site visitors to have a better site navigation experience. Our goal is to always welcome our visitors to our website with a comfortable, enjoyable experience. As always, we continue to welcome your comments, even on our new and improved website. We will always endeavour to improve ourselves for the benefit of you, our valuable customers.
