Choosing your wedding ring should be one of the most exciting parts
of your engagement. However, shopping for it can get quite
confusing. There are so many jewelry stores out there now that
competition can get in the way of selecting the right wedding ring
for you. Something that you can expect to receive is conflicting
information, although, most of it intended to sell you rather than
assist you. Donít let shopping for a wedding ring be such a burden.
Here are some buying tactics for that right wedding ring.
Where to shop?
I know you might think that the best places to shop are at big name
companies but thatís not always the case. If youíre looking for top,
personalized service, the best places to go are locally owned
jewelry stores. It is also a good idea to look for a store with an
in-house jeweler, so any custom work or sizing can be done right
there. A jeweler thatís rooted in the community has a vested
interest in making you a satisfied customer because they typically
advertise by "word-of-mouth".
Lots of people have a hard time when choosing a wedding ring because
of many factors involved in the diamond quality and value.
Basically, diamond grading is broken down into four Cís; carat,
clarity, color, and cut. All of these add up to a fifth C; cost.
Something to ask is how the four Cís apply to the ring that you are
Once youíve come to your conclusion, there are other things to think
about before actually purchasing. How long will it take to have the
ring sized? If the ring is being ordered from an outside
manufacturer, how much time will be required for delivery and size
adjustments? Allowance of sufficient time in advance of your wedding
date is essential.
In conclusion, ask questions. Good sales people like to share their
knowledge and experience. Donít make snap decisions; try visiting a
good amount of stores before deciding. Lastly, buy the ring that YOU
want, not what the salesman wants you to get.
