    Option 2, the header doesn't take up as much screen real-estate above the fold. And the black seemed to cramp things up

    I voted Option 1.. I'm really into sleak and clean.. When I think of jewelry for sale, I alway think of those commercial where they compare jewelry to some brand new sleak lincoln or something.. With that dark yet smooth cobmination of colors. I'm not really into the Frissy kind og site with elegant texxt and pastel accents.. I don't like the baby powder blue on option 2.. I feel like the site are broken up for gender.. Maybe option 2 will be better for girls Jewelry and Option 1 for guys..

    Anyway, check your option 2 site, there is a problem with it in IE7.. Don't worry about it too much, IE7 is only in beta, so I could be soemthing in the browser.. Just somethink to look into..

    I definately prefer design 2. However I love the dark grey used in design one in the ehader with the logo sittign on top as it really stands out nicely so perhaps you could incorporate that into design 2.

    I voted for 2nd one. But I think its too close and difficult to select. Both the designs looks quite professional

    Thumbs up

    I voted for the second one. They layout is much more accessible for users, although I like the royal blue that you've got going on with the first option. I think that tone of blue would offset the greys a lot better.

    The footer is also much more navigable. The first one is far too heavy with the black banner stretching right across the screen.

    Nice design though, its clean and clear to users!

    I vote for the 2nd one, much cleaner and inviting. Needs the subtle CSS from option 1 applying to the footer to complete. The header on option 1 takes up too much screen estate.

    Seems like 2 would be a better choice. I think it would appeal more to a man who is buyng jewelry for a woman. If a woman is shopping for her own jewelry she looks more for prestige, not affordability. It's true that a lower price lets you get more bling for your buck, but a girl's not going to want to show off a new necklace and tell her friends it came from a discount internet site. (This is based on my impression of women that I know, not any real research. This one girl I know threw a necklace her boyfriend gave her into the street because it wasn't from Tiffany's, but then again she's also slightly insane.)

    A man on the other hand is going to care about price to a greater extent, so your site will be more appealing to him anyways. Why not use the one that speaks more to him?

    Off Topic:

    I have an idea that maybe will give your site some bricks-and-mortar credibility. Get some product shots that show the jewelry being worn, with a plain white background. Then alter the background so it looks like the picture was taken in a jewelry store. This worked for someone who was making some clothing item for sale on ebay, they walked into a store, put their item on a manequin, took a picture and left. Sales increased imeediately.

    lol
    Tell her you love her in a language she understands

    Honestly sex will sell in any industry. If you involve an atractive woman in your sites content, the viewer will tend to stay and look around a bit. It is always important to use graphics that incorporate human interation, because it gives the site a much more dramatic flow. Anyways both sites look pro in their design.

    I voted for #2. Main reason same as other people, #1 is to heavy with the black at the top. The second is very friendly and soft which seems better for Jewelry. Unless of course you go with a black themed site, which this isn't.

    I prefer option one. I think the blue stripes on the header should be a little bit brighter though if you stay with the blue, the black in combination with the blue is too heavy and does not say jewelry. Instead I would choose a deep golden/copper tone. I would also like to see the name in a pale golden color, pick it out of the diamond. You want to convey "luxurious", black and blue do not do that.

    The RISK FREE seal is too green, it should be warmer towards the yellow, not the green. General layout is clean and nicely organized - Datura

    Voted 1.
    The first seems more luxurious. The blue is deeper than on the second design. Same thing for the "black", it gives strength, depth.
    The second design is lighter. In front of the fisrt design, it has a lack of personality.
    IMHO

    Remark on the black text on light grey zones on the left : it makes me think of Apple's website. Or unfinished.

    I like the second one better because it is more professional looking and has a good use of white space. I like how you kept the site static as I don't think a liquid layout would have worked for this site. I also like the simple header and a easy to find View Cart buttons. Very pressionally done!

    I voted 1, the black makes it appear much more exquisit and sharp. I dont like the grey quote boxes down the left though. They appear amaturish compared to the rest of the design.

    definately the second one!

    the first version looks to dark, too much black.

    the menue on the left side is a little bit to tiny (fontsize) and should be better integrated into the hole site.

    the site looks a little weird on the opera 9 browser, maybe a little css work to match it perfect.

    IMO,It seems allure effect of luxurien2.html is better than Luxurien3.html's.

    I like the second one - for the professional sense of it
    I like the first one - it's very good on the eyes, and the colors are used very well

    So... with that said, I'm not sure which one to pick, I guess my vote would go to number 1

    Hi.
    Both design were good.
    But personally I prefer #1. (With the black bg)
    It looks more classy for me. More appealing to people that can afford.
    No offense to anyone please.

    I prefer #1 apart from the times new roman text on your left. I think that it looks more professional and protrays "quality" more.

    I think they are both very good, but 2 has to be the best. Looks better and I agree with this:

    Option 2. More brighter design solution, looks nice. I like navigation placement and these secured, satisfaction garanteed icons, it gives some credibility and trust for customers
