Buying online

When you are shopping online you cant beat the selection. It is easier to compare diamonds from different vendors as well as price. You are free from pesty salesmen, and do not have to worry about who gets the commission or dealing with managers. Plus you are able to generally find lower prices then if you were in the  store. Also many websites include refund and exchange policies which make it easier to swap if any issue comes up. However you have to keep in mind that the internet is the internet, and everything you read isn’t true. Its a unregulated marketplace with goods that are manipulate you into thinking your getting something better then the actual item. Check out online ratings and customer reviews on each vendors website. But even if you find a highly rated merchant, you cant always trust what you read. Another disadvantage of purchasing an engagement ring online is that you are at the mercy of the information that the shop provides you. So if you find a ring you just gotta have online, be sure to ask any and every question before making any major purchases.

Buying In Store

Before you go throwing your hard earned cash at the first jeweler you come across, do yourself a favor and check out some things online first. Shop retail for shape, color, clarity, and if its certified. Compare stones from other vendors online, as well as price. This may be more time consuming then if you were to purchase the ring online, however you are more likely to be happy with the outcome of your ring. Look for a good refund policy that offers money back guaranteed, and any changes that need to be made to the ring (for example sizing). There is nothing better then seeing the diamonds in person, that way you know exactly what your getting. A great jeweler will show you many options in your price range and let you know the trade value of the rings. You will also experience immediate gratification and get to walk out of the store with your new purchase. To completely work the channel, be sure to ask around, talk to friends, family members, coworkers, anyone! Get the best advice from women who have gone through this very thing! Whatever you choose when it comes to purchasing your engagement ring, just remember that its not about the ring, but the person who is wearing it!
