When buying an engagement ring online post-sales support is important. Put simply, if you’re not happy then neither are we.
If you’re curious about buying an engagement ring online, then first; congratulations on being in love. We’re happy for you. Now, on to the important question – how to decide where to buy it from? Ask yourself these three questions to help you decide.
What is the reputation of the jewelry supplier?
Sadly the internet is rife with scams and fake sites, but with fine jewelry specifically, buyers really do rely heavily on the integrity of the seller because they are buying an engagement ring online, sight unseen.
Make sure you’re working with a reputable jeweler who is bound by a robust code of ethics and code of conduct. One quick way to assess this is to ask the seller whether they hold membership or accreditation with a Jewellery association? This is important because Jewellery associations will require members to uphold at all times the tradition and integrity of the Jewellery industry, and conduct themselves and their business in such a manner that will reflect credit to the Association, their fellow members and the entire industry. It will also bind members to higher standards of service and require a documented complaints procedure to seek resolution where customer expectations are not met.

(JWNZ) was formed in 1983, from an amalgamation of the Jewellers Association of New Zealand Inc, formed 1944, and the New Zealand Horological Institute, formed in 1936. Members are required to abide by a strict Code of Ethics and Code of Conduct.
Return policy when buying an engagement ring online?
Reputable suppliers want you to be satisfied with your purchase. A return policy is good business for brick-and-mortar stores, and it’s essential to doing business online. Unlike visitors to brick-and-mortar stores, online consumers don’t get to see and hold the physical product before they buy it. So e-commerce sites must ensure that their return policies are fair and appealing to their customers.
When buying online always look for a clear and concise return policy gives you a feeling of security; that what you are buying is guaranteed to be what it is represented to be. If a retailer doesn’t give this guarantee, then shop elsewhere.
