5 top tips when shopping for jewellery online
1. Do your research
Before shopping for jewellery online – and parting with your hard-earned cash – it’s a good idea to check the company you’d like to buy from are who they say they are. Online search engines will tell you at the touch of a button if a brand is bona fide or not, giving you the peace of mind you’re dealing with a legitimate online shop. Look for things like cyber security guarantees and links to social media profiles on their website so you can click through and be sure of their online presence.
2. Read the reviews
What are other shoppers saying? Are they happy with their purchase? Did the item arrive as described? How many stars did they give it? And what was the customer service like? These are all important questions when shopping for everything from wedding ring sets to mens earrings online.
3. Look for discounts – & make the most of them!
Many jewellery sites offer discounts off your first order in exchange for signing up to their newsletter or mailing list. For example, if you’re looking for cheap engagement rings you could get up to 10% off your order simply by sharing your email address and contact details. What’s more, many online jewellery stores offer rolling discount codes throughout the year.
4. Think about sustainability
Jewellery might be a luxury rather than a necessity but that doesn’t mean it can’t be ethical and responsible too. Look for things like recycled precious metals and sustainable packaging to help do your bit for the environment while enjoying your new piece of jewellery at the same time.
5. Check the return & exchange policy
Before making your purchase online it’s really important to check the return and exchange policy. Can your item be resized if it doesn’t fit? Is there a shipping fee? What happens if you change your mind? Knowing the return and exchange policy before you buy will help ensure a smooth shopping experience so that at the end of the process you’re a happy customer.
