Shopping and Wedding: Finding the Perfect Jeweler for the Perfect Designer Engagement Ring
|February 28, 2013||Posted by admin under Shopping and Wedding|
If you are planning to propose and your first step now is to look for the perfect engagement ring, then surely, you’re on for a challenge. There are tons of shops and stores – online and offline – where you can get an engagement ring. If you’re a bit confused, here are some steps that can help you…
Check online for reputable jewelers.
You can buy designer rings online on Whiteflash (click on this link). When you buy a designer ring, online jewelers can be a good option if you don’t have enough time to roam around from shop to shop – or if you find shopping on foot a bit risky. Also, most online jewelers offer a more affordable price in exchange for a less ‘hand-holding’. Just make sure that the online seller you are dealing with is legit and reputable. Read feedbacks and reviews.
Ask recommendations from family and friends.
If you cannot find what you want from the range of rings by Verragio on http://www.whiteflash.com/verragio, you can always explore other options – even offline. You can also find rings by Verragio in highly recommended local jewelry stores. You can talk to your married friends or those who have also recently proposed and ask them where is the best place to find quality rings in various styles. You can also just tell them exactly what kind of ring you have in mind. However, make sure that they keep your surprise a secret.
Check with Jeweler organizations.
If you have no leads – no recommendations at all and you are having second thoughts about buying online, you should check with an jewelry groups and organizations such as Jewelers of America of the Gemological Institute of American. The groups have a list of accredited stores, which you may find reputable.
Explore your options THOROUGHLY.
Before you buy anything, survey and compare prices, quality, and insurance coverage and refund policies. Make sure your ring comes with a Certificate – and that the store or their chain of stores offers exchanges just in case you got the wrong size or style – or if there are any problems with the ring or the gemstone.
