The statistics for mobile device web browsing are staggering. Roughly 91% of Americans have cell phones with a little more than half of them owning smart phones. And, two-thirds of cell phone owning Americans use their phones to surf the web and check email, leading to a doubling of mobile device web browsing since 2009.


GemFind recognizes this inescapable trend by making its Builder series of jewelry customization applications with responsive design, which automatically adjusts the format to fit the width of any viewing device. Created in 2002, Ring Builder® is GemFind’s premier jewelry customization application. Since its inception, Ring Builder® has undergone many changes including responsive design last year.


The Ring Builder® upgrade has performed so well for GemFind customers that it is now available in Pendant Builder™, Stud Builder™ and the soon-to-be-released Watch Builder™. All of these Builder applications have successfully been seamlessly incorporated into client websites.
