How To Buy Jewelry Online

Looking to buy a jewelry gift, but not planning to go into a brick-and-mortar store? Or are you planning on proposing soon? (Congrats!) You’re probably wondering how you’re going to buy the perfect piece of jewelry during a pandemic, right? Well, don’t worry; it’s not as hard as you think.

Although COVID-19 has changed our lives drastically, it doesn’t mean you need to let it ruin your plans. You may not be walking into jewelry stores anytime soon but you can still find the perfect jewelry online! Here are 3 tips that you need to read before you start looking for the perfect piece of jewelry- be it an engagement ring, earrings, a necklace, or something else.

1. Find videos of your jewelry

To start your online search, look for websites that have 360° videos of each item. This is such a great feature that some companies offer. These videos allow you to see the whole piece from all angles. If you can’t see something in person, this is the next best thing!

2. Request magnified photos

Haven’t you heard? A picture is worth a thousand words. If you have your eyes set on a few pieces of jewelry, contact the company and request magnified photos (or videos!) of the items you’re looking at. Jewelers would love the opportunity to showcase their products! When it comes to jewelry, the details matter. These close up shots will help you make that final decision so much easier.

3. Try on at home

Did you know that some online companies will send you engagement ring samples for you to try on at home? It seriously doesn’t get easier than this! There is simply no better way to shop than literally from the comfort of your own home. Take the opportunity to see, feel and decide what shape sits best on your finger. If you don’t want your fiancĂ© to see the ring before the proposal, this is still a great way for you to see the rings in-person.

Companies like Stefano Navi are paving the way for the modern engagement ring shopping experience. Order their complimentary home try on kit, which comes with 6 engagement rings, in white, yellow or rose gold. If you decide none of the engagement rings are for you – no harm done, since these home try on kits are free! 

4. Try a Custom Made Piece

For all your bespoke wishes – whether it be engagement rings, pendants, earrings or bracelets – try scheduling a virtual appointment with a jeweler’s design team. These have become really accessible since Covid-19 and they will work with you to construct the design you desire and put together a quote for you. 

5.  Shop reputable

The online marketplace is flooded with companies trying to make a quick buck by saving you a dollar. It can be very tempting to see a pretty picture sparkling at you on the screen and click the buy button.  Of course, when it comes in, it  turns out to be something a kid might find in a cereal box, and there’s little we can do about it.  That’s why you need to avoid the deals and steals listed on a discount website and go directly to a reputable dealer who will make sure you’re getting nothing but the best.  But that doesn’t mean that finding a steal on jewelry is impossible! You just have to look in the right places. Try cutting costs on diamond jewelry by looking for lab-grown or lab-created pieces, which can be up to 60% cheaper than their earth mined counterparts. 

Don’t forget that buying the jewelry  of your dreams is supposed to be a fun experience. Although it may be different than how you always imagined it, it can still be an amazing, stress-free experience.

As we all try to adapt to a world with COVID-19, companies are adapting with us and giving us options that meet our new needs. Buying jewelry online may have seemed like a scary thought before 2020, but now, it’s a piece of (wedding) cake!
