Make sure the online store is legit

You should always check the reviews of the online store (or seller) before you buy anything. This will give you an idea of what kind of customer service they have and how reliable they are.

You should also make sure that the website is safe and secure before entering your credit card information. If a website isn’t encrypted or doesn’t have a good reputation, it’s better not to use it.

Make sure you’re getting the best prices online

The internet has made it easier than ever to find the best prices on any product.

However, there are still some things to keep in mind when shopping online to make sure you’re getting the best price. 

  • Make an offer – Often retailers of antique jewellery will accept offers for their pieces. So don’t be shy and make an offer, of course, don’t offend the seller and make it reasonable. Often 5-10% may be a doable discount for jewellery retailers. What is the worst that can happen?
  • Avoid impulse buys. Never go with the first piece of jewelry that you see and like without comparison shopping to make sure you’re getting the best deal. You might not realize that you’re overspending until after you’ve bought it, and then it’s too late.
  • Beware of scams. There are so many scams on the internet these days. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is, and in the long run, it’ll just end up with you spending more money.
  • Use coupon/cashback websites. Coupon sites like SimplyCodes and cashback sites like Rakuten are a must when you’re shopping online. By having these two Chrome browser extensions installed you can be confident that you’re getting the best price.

Perform research to find the best item for you

There are many factors to consider before buying jewelry online, such as price, quality, and availability. It can be hard to know what’s best for you without doing some research first. 

For example, if you’re shopping for basic wedding rings online you’ll want to do some research to see what style you’re most interested in and also have a budget in place before you even start shopping. 

Do you want gold or silver, or are you okay with lower quality material for the time being?

Understand the store policies

Once you’ve found the perfect piece of jewelry online before committing 100% to the purchase, you also want to make sure that you’re aware of the store policies. 

Does the jewelry come with any sort of warranty? Do they accept returns? How soon do they ship and where do they ship from? Is the product shipped with insurance? What happens if the product is lost or stolen in transit?

These are all things that you need to know when buying jewelry online and any credible website will have the answers to these questions readily listed on their website. 

You can buy jewelry online successfully

You can buy jewelry online successfully. However, keep in mind that the internet is full of scams. 

I’m not saying only buy from well-established businesses that have been around for years, but when shopping with smaller businesses (especially when making a large purchase such as jewelry) it is important to make sure that they are actually a legit online retailer.

    Purchasing high-value items online like jewelry can be nerve-wracking. The most important thing to do, I guess, is to establish the legitimacy of the store.

  5. Christy says:

    I’ve purchased jewelry online but it hasn’t been expensive purchases. But if im going to spend a few hundred dollars, I think I’d prefer to purchase it in person. Purchasing based off photos can be risky especially diamonds bc you don’t know if they are real or not until you get them appraised.

  6. These are really good tips for buying jewelry online, you really don’t know what you’re in for half of the time but I’ve found that, personally, I love to hunt for custom pieces by craftspeople on etsy! Some of the jewelry can be so unique and beautiful!
