Has anyone bought their Wedding Rings from On-line?

Recommended Posts

My FI purchased my engagement ring online, but we bought our wedding bands at Zales. I love my engagement ring, but the diamonds definitely look smaller in person than on the website. The quality of the diamonds are pretty good; they are clear and sparkly. However, my FI also did not realize that the "Warranty" that comes with the purchase only covers manufacturing defects and nothing else. But, I'm ok with that... We can always "upgrade" our wedding sets in 5 years or so.

 

The wedding bands the we purchased from Zales did come with a full warranty (i.e., covers lost stones, cleaning, resizing, etc.).

My FI bought my ring on Bluenile.com. He did research and it got very high ratings. They charge less because there is very little overhead. The ring is beautiful! We got it appraised by a local jewelry appraiser and it was appraised at much more than he purchased it for. Additionally, there was not any tax on it. I would highly recommend looking on their website. They allow you to return the product if you get it and are not happy with it. We will probably get our wedding bands there too.

 

I was told by the appraiser that the stores in the mall charge the most because they have the highest overhead. Next is the stand alone brick and mortar stores. And online charges the least.

 

Good luck!

I agree w/ SDbeachgirl- My FI got my engagement ring from Bluenile as well. He did a lot of research, and got a great deal. Now I have a flawless,colorless diamond for much less than you would pay at a retail store. They have great customer service, and we plan on buying both of our wedding rings there. We have also purchased several bday and Christmas presents for the Moms and Grandmas!

 

Good luck!

My FI also purchased my engagement ring from bluenile. He too did ALOT of research and compared prices and products with the local retail jewelry stores. He got a great deal and my ring is awesome. We also took it to get apraised and it was valued at almost double what he paid. I think we will be purchasing our bands from them as well.

We buy a lot of stuff from whiteflash.com. They're great and can do custom settings and only deal in the highest quality stones.
