How do you feel about shopping for wedding rings online? Have you considered the option?
Buying stuff online usually works out cheaper because many vendors online don’t have to pay store site rental, warehouse fees and the general overheads of a regular store, so those savings often go back to the customer.
Browsing through the many great money-saving deals online retailers offer can be overwhelmingly tempting to save a few hundred dollars.
But before you even consider shopping online for your wedding ring, even if it’s from a certified vendor, I strongly suggest you read this.
This is the #1 reason why buying a ring on the Internet is a mug’s game…
Despite the guarantees and returns policies an online company may have, it doesn’t mean squat because most courier companies will not accept any jewellery with diamonds for transit because doing so would violate their dangerous goods policies for the security of their delivery drivers.
This leaves it up to you to somehow find a way to return the ring within a limited time frame and if you bought the ring from outside your home country, the chances of returning it successfully are even slimmer.
You are stuck with a dud ring and no money to go to a real store and get a new one. Even if you somehow manage to find a courier service that will ship it, you are risking a huge investment being lost or stolen.
All it takes is one dishonest postal worker to take away the ring and all the money you sunk into it.
Internet shopping is fine for inexpensive purchases like clothes or electrical goods. The worst that can happen is that you lose out on a few bucks but a wedding ring is special so is not a smart online purchase.
Buying directly from a respected and trustworthy jeweller is really the way to go when choosing a wedding ring. You will always know where your wedding ring came from and where to take it back if anything should happen and be protected by a valid guarantee and warranty policy.
