It is not outrageous to say that an engagement right is the most important purchase of your life. Sure, there are other, considerably more expensive purchases, but none carry the overall weight of an 婚約指輪 久留米. You are making a commitment and a lifestyle change, and thus it would be wise to make the most of this purchase and ensure that you get the best possible ring for your partner. We all have different budgets, of course, but it shouldn’t be too hard to find a fairly high quality diamond ring for a decent price, right? Head out to your local jewelers and let me know how it goes.
High Mark-up on Diamonds
If you’ve done some window-shopping at your local stores, you’ve no doubt noticed the incredibly high prices on diamonds. Sure, you can probably scout out a discount shop that is offering low prices, but the quality of those diamonds is noticeably lower and they are dull with visible imperfections. Not exactly what you want to present her during the big moment. These local jewelers have so much overhead that they have no choice but to mark-up their inventory in order to cover their expenses and still turn a profit. This is the number one reason why buying engagement rings online makes sense. The top online retailers operate exclusively online, and thus have nowhere near the expenses of brick and mortar local stores. This allows them to pass on the savings to the consumer, and offer prices that are at least 20% lower than local stores.
At this point, I’m guessing that you have determined how much money you can afford to spend. You’ve seen what kind of ring your budget will buy you locally, now it’s time to shop around online. Be aware: much like brick and mortars, not all online stores are created equal. It would be best to stick to the major online retailers–look for retailers that are listed in the Better Business Bureau, and offer money-back guarantees and other customer perks. And again, just like your local stores, each store has different prices. Spend some time shopping around and comparing prices from the comfort of your own home, without the pushy salesmen. You’ll quickly come to realize what I’m saying is true: the prices are considerably lower. Now we’re talking–your initial budget is suddenly able to buy you a much better and bigger diamond that will have the wow factor. And trust me: while you shouldn’t spend more than you can afford, you’re kidding yourself if you think size and sparkle don’t matter, if only just a little.
Buy With Confidence
There is nothing to worry about when it comes to shipping and/or returns if you buy from a reputable online retailer. The best ones ship via fully-insured, express shipping (for free), offer a minimum 30-day money-back guarantee, and offer free re-sizing and a lifetime warranty. With all these assurances working in your favor, it’s hard to find a reason not to at least think about buying online. You will be happy that you did.
