I like the overall view of the site, nice and clean.
The only thing I don't like is the menu at the top, try using another font (verdana) or icons like you do with the shoppingcart.
I also noticed the rollover-effect in the flashmovie. In your hit-frame from the button you've got only the text Vibgyor Gems Corp. Replace the text with a rectangle for a better roll-over effect.
Normally I don't like music on a site, but I think this is quite subtle

I have no experience with designing shoppingcart systems, so I can't tell you much about that. The only thing I noticed were the four decimal places for the price, what's with that?

hi,
It looks very nice but:

1. rollover effect should be changed
2. i noticed that at the end of the presentation these two rings are 'jumping slightly to the left - (at last frames).

also I would change the way the " online store for..." text appears, for me it's too simple. the same with this diamond especially the way it goes up.
but generally I like it very much, it's nice and clean

I like the site design myself I just think the logos on your index page are to crammed in the lower left side... also on your client login page there is a picture of a guy trying to jump into a computer monitor? Doesn't seem like it was suppose to be there

and it looks like the site was made for the res 800 by 600 but I might be wrong there, I belive but not sure. that resolution web standards are 1280 by 768... but I'm not sure

Very good layout but the citrine is out of line with the other stones
The background music is a good idea but can get kinda annoying

Thank you for your time and review. I guess your suggestion sounds good for the top navigation menu; I think I may use some images instead of plain text.

Sqnik
Thank you for your time and review. For flash I think current effect looks decent (although simple).I tried couple of effects but can’t seem to work well, could you suggest some.

Thank you for your review. I changed the image on the client login page. The site has been made for 1280 * 768 resolutions, although I have deliberately kept table width to 714 pixels.

Thank you for your review. Agreed citrine looks a bit out of line. I will adjust it a bit to appear in line.

I like this site, it has a neat, clean homepage with some appropriate background music. On the homepage rollover image, I say do away with the first image and integrate the rollover image as part of the logo, it'll look better. On the search results page, I would take out table_background_browse. gif; it doesn't fit with the site. Also, because you sell high-price merchandise, I would get certified by PayPal as a safe seller to build client trust. Overall site design and business model are great.

Well it all is aligned to the left. It seems as if you are cramming all of that stuff to save space. Let it spread. I don't know if it's just me, but I seem to have a rollover porblem. Whenever I put my mouse over your logo, it starts to flicker a bit. I don't quite like the font used at the top and I think that should be put beneath the logo. It would look better with the logo at the very top of the page.

Other than that, I can't find much else to comment on. Well done and keep up the good work! :)

Thank you for your time and review.

Nebula
Thank you and we are glad you liked our site.

Funny_Fuzz
Thank you for your time and review.
I am going to change the mouse over effect in flash.I am not sure should i completely remove it or add some in place.

Actually initially we had tables center_alligned but we thought left_allign looks better.There is no perticular reason behind it.

Thank you
I appreciate.

It looks to be a very good page, everything seems to be working fine.

If you are interested in your search engine properties, read the following:

Firstly, your Google page rank is ZERO!. One way of improving that is by adding backlinks to your site on other good pages. You currently have ZERO backlinks (http://search.yahoo.com - link:http://www.vibgyorgems.com/)

Just a thought
