When it comes to online shopping, trust is the main factor… especially when we are planning to buy something from our savings that we have accumulated over a significant period of time. Shopping jewellery online has its own set of benefits that people mostly overlook because they are too scared to order something expensive online without seeing it first.
Here are the 5 ways to ensure that the jewellery that you are shopping is worth your time and every penny spent –
Hallmarking & Certification
Whether it’s online or offline, the main reason for buying gold is the investment aspect. Gold multiplies in its value over the years. Hence, it’s one of the safest forms of investment known to man. In order to ensure that the jeweller is not duping you, always buy hallmarked gold jewellery and certified diamonds and gemstones.
In India, hallmarking is done by BIS. It’s a government body that ensures every piece of gold jewellery sold is hallmarked. Diamond and gemstone jewellery certification is done by third-party international labs.
While doing online jewellery shopping, it’s difficult to assess how long a particular earring is or how would a particular pendant look on you. It’s very crucial to know the exact dimensions of the jewellery you are buying. That’s why make sure you look it up or get in touch with the customer care to know the details before making the purchase.
Alternatively, you can also try them on virtually before buying them at some online jewellery boutiques.
Returns & Refunds
Whether it expensive jewellery or simple apparel, always take out time to quickly go through the return and refund policy before making the transaction. It just makes you become more confident in buying your jewellery knowing that the return policy is in your favour.
Nothing is as satisfying as paying your bills digitally. Carrying loose cash may ease things out a bit but counting every penny and paying is quite tiresome. Paying digitally ensure you don’t have to tip off extra even if you didn’t wish for it.
Also, when you pay online, you can pick up multiple payment options like a credit card, debit card, net banking and especially EMI. Not all offline shops allow you to pay via EMI. However, it’s easy to find online payment options online.
Safe Delivery At Home
After buying jewellery from offline stores, it’s quite scary to bring it back to your home. With online shopping, you can let your store worry about the safe delivery to home. Their delivery in insured, which implies that any loss in transit will be covered by the company. You may also choose to deliver it to some other location where you are heading to attend a wedding.
That being said don’t worry and grab yourself a gorgeous piece of jewellery online that stole your heart. Shopping jewellery online eliminates a lot of problems and it’s a great way of going to thousands of designs without budging from your place in no time.
