Process

Personas

We first took our standard personas and identified which users are the main demographic for engagement rings. There are three main personas for product purchasing.

Competitive Analysis

We then went and looked at competitors both in the jewelry industry and outside to identify elements that Ritani should consider on the product list pages and product detail pages.

User Flows

We then identified all of the different types of product list pages, product detail pages and where they fell in the user flow.

Exploration

During the exploration phase, we brainstormed ideas for what we thought the best solution would be. I did low-fidelity wireframes of what I was thinking before jumping into my visual design. I created a lot of Invision prototypes for review meetings and dev hand-off.

Design

The design step is my favorite part of the UX process. I quickly went from the wireframes that I did in the exploration phase to hi-fi visuals and interactive prototype.

Personas

Product Detail Page Requirements

The product page layout, design, and features are the centerpiece of the users’ experience. Nearly all users go through a product page before making any purchase, and it’s often on the product page where users make up their mind on whether or not they want to purchase the item.

Users on the product page are often at very different stages of their purchasing decision: some users may causally browse product pages with no particular product in mind, while others know exactly what they want and will want to jump straight to the details. During the rebrand efforts, one of the challenges was to rethink the product detail pages for diamond and setting.

Ritani is one of the leading online retailer of diamonds. Ritani continues to push the envelope in giving the user complete control over the diamond
buying process. Design your own ring project helps to push the process to the next level. An engagement ring is a high-stakes purchase. Giving buyers
the sense of confidence and trust they need when buying one online, requires a special touch. Ritani wanted a site that provided a premium ecommerce
experience with an innate sense of quality and service.

Product List Page Requirements

During the rebrand efforts, one of the challenges was to rethink the product list pages for diamond and setting. Ritani’s product list pages were difficult to scan. The goals were:

  • Present the user with sufficient product information to adequately assess a product’s suitability.
  • Provide the user with adequate visual product information like good product thumbnails which tend to play a key role in the user’s search and selection of products.
  • Present diamond in 2 views: List and Grid. In list view provide the user with all the specs diamond information necessary to compare and make a decision. In grid view, present a clearer product thumbnail.
  • Focus on educating the user about diamonds in the basic and advanced filters. Provide tips and visual cues.
