With the advent of the internet, shopping has become so much easier — no need to leave your couch to purchase your groceries from Amazon or buy shoes from Zappos.
Here at WeddingLovely, we’re huge fans of the internet and how much easier it has made our lives (which is why we do what we do!) But there has always been one category that seems the most scary to trust a website for, as it’s one of the biggest and longest lasting purchases for your wedding: your wedding rings.
Modern jewelry and diamond websites has improved in quality, trustworthiness, and experience. Thinking of buying your engagement or wedding rings online? We’ve partnered with Leibish & Co. with to provide a few reasons why you should:

You’ll save a ton of money
Jewelry at brick-and-mortar stores has a huge markup. Online stores have so much less overhead and expenses that their jewels will be a lot easier on your wallet. If you’re lusting over that fancy yellow diamond ring but can’t afford it, try online — you’ll be surprised by the sales you could find.

You’ll avoid pushy salespeople
Mall jewelry stores are notorious for their salespeople trying to help you out to get a commission — it’ll feel like you’re at a used car dealership. It’s better at mom-and-pop jewelry stores, but if you’re like me and like to shop in solitude, there is nothing more peaceful than the comfort of your own home.

You’ll get access to a much larger selection
If you’re searching for the perfect ring at brick-and-mortar stores, you might have to visit two or more separate stores due to different availability and designs at each. So much travel time! Online stores will have a much larger selection of in-stock and reach to purchase jewelry, with more options to look through, meaning you get more choice without having to shlep around town.

Buy in secret (as long as you get the mail first)
Will you be noticed heading out to the jewelry store (or multiple jewelry stores since one isn’t usually enough selection?) Browse for rings and jewelry to surprise your special someone online in secret on your computer at home. Usually online jewelry companies are great about having nondescript packaging too, as long as your partner isn’t the type to open your mail for you.

Work with a reputable online jewelry store
By working with one of the top and most trustworthy online jewelry stores, you’ll have better confidence that what you see and expect is what you’ll get. The best stores will list the exact details of the stones (the 4C’s — clarity, color, cut, and carat) as well as any certifications the gem has. With an online jeweler you can view certification for the diamond on the spot — all the information about the piece of jewelry is gathered for you and should be organized clearly so you can compare pieces easily. If you are in the store, you have nothing with which to compare what they are displaying, which is a major advantage to begin with. The best online stores will also have a return policy in case the ring has unexpected defects or needs to be resized as well as a comprehensive happiness guarantee.
