A jewelry product configuration interaction for magento
Magento jewelry product configurator allows customers to combine diamonds and rings (if required) into a single item (known as Magento bundle products). But simple products are enabled as well and bundle products are just an option. So your shoppers can buy separately a ring, a diamond OR a custom bundle: a ring with a diamond.
The jewelry extension generates custom product pages (in our example: one for rings and one for diamonds). Different view options are preserved (grid, list).
The operations like filtering, sorting, adding products to compare and wishlist occur with no reload (AJAX driven) that minimizes the server load unlike the default Magento functionality.
In our ring/ diamond sample they are applied as default Magento products in the extension core that leaves intact the entire functionality for Magento products – taxes, promotions, etc. and this also makes possible to enhance your store with more extensions coming from iKantam and other 3rd party Magento providers.
