How to Safely Shop for Jewelry Online 

Online purchases of jewelry can save you a lot of money, but not all online jewelry vendors are created equal. Follow these suggestions and you should have a great experience.

  1. Know what you want.
    amgr-1cMost online jewelry stores allow you to search by type of item (bracelets, necklaces, rings, etc.) and by metal (gold, silver, platinum, etc.) and sometimes by other means as well (gemstones, crosses, dog tags, etc.). Take advantage of these categories and look for exactly what you want.
  2. Know your size.
    Have your measurements handy, including ring size and preferred length (bracelets and chains come in many sizes).
  3. Know what quality grades you’re looking for.
    Gold is measured in karats, diamonds in carats. Sterling silver should be .925 (the highest grade for jewelry). Do some research before you browse!
  4. Research the vendor.
    An online jewelry store should have positive feedback from customers. Find out how long they’ve been in business. Check for accreditation from places like the Better Business Bureau and professional associations.
  5. Ask about warranties.
    If something should go wrong with your jewelry, will the vendor be willing to fix or replace it? For how long?
  6. Find out about return and exchange policies.
    These vary from store to store and are an important part of how the vendor does business. Some businesses only allow a short time for returns or exchanges, and some for a longer time. Be sure you know the policy before you buy.
  7. dwr-3862cLook for customer service.
    Can you talk to a live person to help you with your purchase or with questions? Good customer service is a must.
  8. Find out about services.
    Many jewelry vendors will offer free services like cleaning, tightening clasps, and polishing stones. Ask about these services.
  9. Shop only on secure sites.
    These stores use secure transactions to ensure that your information remains safe.
  10. Look for secure delivery options.
    Your delivery should be as secure as your purchase. Requiring a signature upon delivery keeps your jewelry safe.
