Global ecommerce sales are expected to reach $1.22 trillion by end of 2013. This growth will surge up to $1.85 trillion by 2016 and Asia-Pacific region would emerge as the biggest ecommerce market worth $707 billion. China and India, two largest countries on Internet by users, are expected to be the main driving forces behind APAC’s ecommerce growth. In 2012, consumer interest in ecommerce went by 128%, apparel and consumer electronics category fascinated online shoppers the most.

The trend in Indian ecommerce is doomed to continue as many offline promising industries have up the ante to grab a significant share of this growth; and, traditional jewellery business is one such industry.
