Whether you are buying an engagement ring or have finally asked her and now have to search for wedding bands, the task of finding the perfect diamond can be overwhelming. It is no secret that e-commerce shopping has become the new way to buy everything from groceries to clothing, but when it comes to engagement rings and wedding rings, is it better to buy online or at a jewelry store? Although both options have their benefits, shopping at a traditional store such as Snow’s Jewelers, provides certain benefits that simply cannot be experienced when you shop online.
Opportunity to Compare
Although you may have a good idea of what diamond shape your future fiancé prefers or what size diamond you are looking for, but it can be extremely difficult to find the perfect engagement ring or wedding rings if you cannot compare several rings with your own eyes. The majority of online stores include photographs with the description, but a photograph cannot capture the true beauty of a diamond. When shopping at Snow’s Jewelers, you will have the opportunity to look at a variety of diamond rings that are within your budget, so you can determine which one is the perfect choice.
Assistance and Education
There are four main components to a diamond — the cut, clarity, color and carat. Before you begin searching online for the perfect diamond, it is important to familiarize yourself with what these things mean and the role they play in choosing the perfect diamond. Shopping at an independent jewelry store means you do not have to overwhelm yourself with the task of learning what it all means, because when you shop at an independent jewelry store, the sales associate will have already brushed up on the education for you. Jewelry stores have a live person who can help you through the process of choosing the right stone as well as answer any questions you may have.
One of the best benefits of buying a diamond engagement ring or wedding rings from Snow’s Jewelers is that you can try on a variety of rings to see how they look and feel. When buying online, what you see is what you get. When purchasing from a jewelry store, you know exactly what you are buying and you get immediate gratification by walking out of the store with the ring in your pocket instead of waiting for it to be delivered.
There is no substitute for seeing a diamond in person. An independent store, such as Snow’s Jewelers, will be able to show you a lot of different options in your price range and educate you on the various trade-offs that can be made when it comes to the cut, color, clarity and carat.
