Hi

Sorting for some of those parameters doesn't make much sense... For example, how would "Sort by Store Type (Ascending/Descending)" be helpful? The user would still have to page through lots of pages before getting to "Silver Rings".

Filters would work better. I would try to use filters such as:

price=200-500&word=gold+diamond+ring

It's not perfect but no merchants provide material delimited fields because nearly all networks don't support that level of granularity in their data feed constructs.

This thread could help: /showthread.php?t=3853

To have the most accurate results you might have to build each category manually, however I would try implementing the steps outlined in the link above to see if you can get what you want first.
