Now that you know how to tell a good jewelry website from a bad one, there is one more thing you should consider before making a purchase – delivery terms. No one wants to pay thousands for an engagement ring only to get a damaged product long after the big day.
It is human nature, again
Usually you are attracted by fascinating pictures, catchy slogans and discounts announcements and find it time-consuming or simply boring to read through long paragraphs with no images included in. This is how delivery terms are traditionally presented. Ironically, what draws the least attention can appear the most or one of the most important pieces of information. Websites differ, and so do delivery terms.
Secure packaging is a must
A good online retailer is someone who cares in what condition their products are delivered to the customer. Anything can happen to the product on its way to the address you specified, especially if it is shipped worldwide. Make sure the retailer provides jewelry shipping boxes and packaging equipment for every purchase you make, regardless of its value.
Delivery terms vary
The worst-case scenario that can happen to you is not receiving an engagement ring on time and having to delay the ‘Will you marry me?’ event, God knows, for how long. Different jewelry sites deliver purchases within different timeframes. Some do this on business days only whilst others promise all-week-long delivery. Read through the terms and conditions to find when your purchase will arrive or apply for a purpose-built service to track your order, if it is available. Just a reminder: gold pieces may take more time to be delivered than silver.
Life is a series of choices you make every day: whether or not to lend money to a friend in need, binge on French Fries while you are on a diet and buy a ring for your fiancée from the very first website you find in Google. A happy life is a series of the right choices.
