Buying Jewellery Online with Confidence

Buying Jewellery Online with Confidence

Shopping online has become a way of life throughout the world, but can you confidently shop for jewellery at an online store? How can you know if a piece of online jewellery will fit, especially if you are buying rings. Will the jewellery be suitable as a gift or right for a special occasion? Is online jewellery good quality? Will the style suit you or be as good as it looks in the photograph? Are the precious stones or diamonds in the jewellery genuine or lab-created, is the gold or silver hallmarked? How do you know which brands to trust?

What to Consider when Buying Jewellery Online

There are a few things to focus on when you decide to purchase jewellery from an online retailer. It pays to do a bit of research about the jewellery seller and their services before you start shopping. Make sure they have a good reputation and that they are selling authentic jewellery. Not all online jewellery sellers are reputable therefore it's important to make sure they are a trusted source. There are online sellers and jewellers all over the world and it can be hard to assess the online market. You can check reviews of the jewellery seller to see if other people have had a good buying experience and whether they received good customer service and a fair price. We have many wonderful reviews from our customers who have purchased jewellery across our online jewellery shops.

Is Your Money Secure?

Another thing to look out for is whether the seller has a secure payment system in place on their jewellery website. This is identified by the https and padlock symbol at the start of the seller's site address. This will ensure that your payment will work correctly and your account details are safe and confidential. The seller should also have clear shipping rates and also a returns policy in place just in case you're not happy with the jewellery you've bought. At Hunters Fine Jewellery we offer free UK shipping and free world-wide shipping on orders over £500. For extra security and safety you will need to sign for your delivery. We also offer no-quibble returns on everything in our jewellery collection.

What if It Doesn't Fit?

Probably the main disadvantage to jewellery shopping online is that you won't be able to try the jewellery on before buying it. This isn't so much of a problem when it comes to purchasing necklaces or earrings or bracelets, but more so if you are buying a ring. It is therefore quite important to know your ring size, or indeed the ring size of your fiance or fiancee, and shop with a seller who can offer resizing and advise you on size. The width and thickness of the shanks of rings can influence the way a ring fits, for example.

A Trusted Brand

How do you know you've found a trusted brand of jewellery online, whether that's a top London store, famous brands such as Cartier or someone manufacturing beautiful gemstones from India? Whether you are shopping for gold or silver jewellery or precious-stone rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, watches or accessories, be sure you know exactly what you're buying. Check the dimensions of the jewellery and the materials used, including hallmarking on gold. This will help you to gauge whether the piece authentic and right for you or the person for whom you are buying a gift.

 What if I Have Questions?

If you have any questions when you are searching for your perfect piece of jewellery, the sellers or jewellers should be available to answer them. It is always a good sign if you can contact the online seller easily and that they answer your questions promptly and assist you with your purchase. At Hunters Fine Jewellery we are always happy to chat with our lovely customers either by telephone or message service and we will help in any way we can. We can offer you free independent advice and help you find the perfect piece of jewellery whether you're looking for gifts, a present for yourself, something for a special occasion or just want to be inspired and find a style you love. We have a wide range of antique, vintage and contemporary jewellery for sale. Always make sure you read the website terms and conditions of an online jewellery brand before committing to a sale from their site.

It's All About the Detail

A reputable online jewellery retailer will provide very clear and true-to-life photographic images of all the jewellery they are selling. It also helps the customer if the photographs show how the jewellery, such as necklaces, rings, earrings or watches, look when worn. This will convey the scale and give you a good idea what the piece will actually look like in real-life and how it will work with your clothing, especially if it's to wear for a special occasion or to be given to someone special as a gift. It isn't always that easy to judge the quality of an item of jewellery without seeing it for yourself in person, therefore an accurate, honest and full description of each item is very important as well as crystal-clear photographs.

What Are the Benefits to Buying Jewellery Online?

Overall, there are many benefits to shopping online for jewellery. The main benefit is that you can browse a huge range of jewellery such as engagement rings, gold wedding rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings or watches and accessories, all from the comfort of your own home. It can be a great way to shop for unique pieces and timeless designs that you won't find on the high-street and that are also great value for money. At Hunters Fine Jewellery we pass on great prices to our customers because we don't have to factor in the cost of expensive shop overheads.
