Should I buy from an online diamonds store?

 

Since the first baby steps of computer communication in the 1960s, quite a lot has changed. The internet has evolved rapidly - jumping from government networks,
to universities, to our homes, and even to our pockets.

This change has revolutionized every aspect of our lives, from the way we think, to the way we talk and even to the way we buy.

 

In this article we'll go over the benefits of buying items such as tennis bracelets from an online jeweler and focus on what you need to do in order to protect yourself to ensure the best online buying experience.

 

Why buy diamonds online?

 
  • Better prices cutting out the middleman and having virtually no operational expenses (compared to brick-and-mortar stores) translates to much lower product prices and great client savings.

  • Convenient Where else can you find a store that's open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week that never has checkout lines. More then that, online stores have a wider variety of payment methods. Glogowski diamonds, for example, works with all major credit cards, bank wires, paypal or even over the phone.

  • Varitey An internet shop is always showing all of it's inventory, in an easy to find, organized method. All items are viewable, with detailed and thorough product information and out-of-stock items can be easily back-ordered and shipped once available. 

  • Planning many times, when we shop traditionally, we pay bus fares, gas, parking and end up paying and buying more due to impulse buying. The internet allows you to cut these expenses, compare prices and get the best deal for your dream diamond.

  • Social If you're sharing your favorite diamond earrings on facebook, pinning it on Pinterest or discreetly buying a gift to a loved one, the internet allows you to research a business and hear what other clients are saying about it. In the age of internet 2.0, businesses rise and fall on user reviews and reputation, allowing you to easily spot shady stores.

   

What to watch for when buying online?

 

While all of these benefits are amazing, there are some questions you need to ask before making an online purchase in order to make sure you're being protected.

 
  • Are my payment details safe? while most credit card companies' policies have adapted to the e-commerce age and protect their clients, there are quite a few other things to look for. HTTPS and SSL (look for the lock icon) are a few of the methods used today to encrypt data. Using them ensures the data is safe and won't fall to the wrong hands.
  • Are my personal details safe? Always look for sites with detailed privacy policies. These will legally bind companies to not abuse your details, sells them to a 3rd party or uses them for spam purposes. A good idea is to look for a seal of approval from an internet security company.
  • What happens if I'm not happy with my order? A respectable business will always look out for it's customers. It's important to have both a solid approach to customer service. If there still isn't a solution, that's where a good return policy will cover you.
