99 cent body jewelry

Wholesale Body Jewelry by 99 Cent Body Jewelry.com Anyone who is a professional in the body jewelry industry will have heard about 99 cent body jewelry. However, this company and its website do not exist anymore, so it's difficult for anyone who was not active in the industry during that time to fully understand this company and its role in the body piercing jewelry wholesale market.

What exactly was 99 Cent Body Jewelry.com?

99 Cent Body Jewelry.com was a subdivision of LA Silver Inc. which was formed in Los Angeles in 1991 by Mike. La Silver specialized in selling silver jewelry, and through that route, they started to integrate silver ear studs and, later, silver nose jewelry such as nose rings and nose studs into their product line. By the late nineties, the company had grown a lot, and body jewelry was quickly becoming a mainstream trend. Since many of their customers demanded steel body jewelry, they finally started introducing those products into their product line. However, since silver jewelry and steel body jewelry required different pricing strategies by 2000, they finally decided that creating a subdivision specialized in body jewelry would be best. Recognizing the significant demand for affordably priced wholesale body jewelry, they decided to focus on selling all their piercing supplies in prepackaged assortments. This led to them being known as the source of wholesale body jewelry at the lowest prices. They were also one of the very first body jewelry companies to use the internet, and by 2002 they started their own website, which was www.99CentBodyJewelry.com. Initially, they still worked with paper body jewelry catalogs, but by 2003 they had transitioned already to a fully functional e-commerce store selling wholesale body jewelry. And since the very beginning, they also accepted international orders, greatly increasing their geographical reach. Being an early adopter really paid off for them, and they became one of the world's largest and most well-known wholesale body jewelry websites. Between 2005 and 2015, 99 Cent Body Jewelry.com was undoubtedly one of the top 3 body jewelry wholesale websites in terms of sales volume and popularity.

What happened to 99 Cent Body Jewelry.com?

By 2015, the body jewelry industry had started slowly changing from a growing market to a mature one. The result of this was that single-season fashion products with low wholesale prices were in less demand from the final customers, and the demand for higher-quality jewelry was increasing. Also price, meanwhile still critical, was not the only buying criteria anymore. By 2018, Mike, the company's owner, and manager, decided to retire from body jewelry. The sizeable remaining stock was sold off to their customers, and the domain was sold to achadirect from Thailand. That company operates an entirely different business model from 99 cent body jewelry since they sell at relatively high prices and by individual pieces of jewelry instead of assortments.
