Blue Nile Inc., is a Delaware corporation incorporated on March 18, 1999 as RockShop.com, Inc. The Company is an online retailer of diamonds and jewelry. Its merchandise consists of diamonds and fine jewelry, with a particular focus on engagement diamonds and settings. The Company offers an exceptional customer experience including substantial education, guidance, selection, customization capability, convenience and value. It has successfully built Blue Nile into a premium brand. It derives its revenues from 44 countries and territories worldwide through its three websites: www.bluenile.com, www.bluenile.ca and www.bluenile.co.uk. Its websites showcase tens of thousands of independently certified diamonds and styles of fine jewelry, including rings, wedding bands, earrings, necklaces, pendants, bracelets and watches. The Company specializes in the customization of diamond jewelry with its "Build Your Own" feature that offers customers the ability to customize diamond rings, pendants and earrings. It has developed an efficient online cost structure and a unique supply solution that eliminates traditional layers of diamond wholesalers and brokers, which allow it to purchase most of its product offerings at lower prices by avoiding mark-ups imposed by those intermediaries. The Company's main competition comes from online and offline retailers that offer products within the higher quality segment of the jewelry market. The Company relies on general intellectual property law and contractual restrictions and, to a limited extent, copyrights and patents, to protect its proprietary rights and technology.
