Why Buy Your Engagement Ring Online?
There are so many pros to making your engagement ring purchase online.
You probably remember the days before the world of online shopping was even a thing — nowadays, shopping online for anything and everything is safe and secure. Even for big ticket items like luxury cars and stunning diamond engagement rings! We are so fortunate to live in a time of easy, affordable online purchasing, and ring purchases are no exception. That’s right; you can now get your stunning solitaire engagement ring shipped safely to your door.
Online jewelry retailers simply don’t have the overhead costs that most physical jewelry shops have, so beautiful, quality diamond engagement rings can be lower in price.
Browse through a big selection of sparkling rings, and you’ll notice Two Birch’s prices are sometimes 20-50% less than what you would find in store, without sacrificing quality.
If you’re taking many trips to different locations trying to find the perfect ring, you’re doing it wrong! You can do it all in one place, online, straight from your home.
Inventory is limited at physical locations.
If you’ve done your research and know of the perfect ring and the qualities that are important to you, see several options that include those qualities by shopping through an online jeweler. It’s very common to have to stop at multiple physical stores to find that specific, perfect infinity engagement ring you’ve been looking for. Instead, browse through dozens of reputable online vendors to find perfect options, just like any other online purchase.
It’s understandable that you may do a double take at the suggestion of making a big life purchase, like a beautiful engagement ring, online! However, there are many ways to check that an online jeweler is trustworthy.
For example, Two Birch is a Certified Google Trusted Store, Wedding Wire Couple’s Choice Award Winner, and has the reviews to back it up.
Luckily, if the ring doesn’t fit exactly right, or it’s not what you expected, reputable companies offer easy returns. At Two Birch, we offer a 30-day “no questions asked” policy for our customers. To get the sizing just right, we recommend ordering a simple virtual fit kit.
Understanding the 4 C’s
Buying online gives you the option to pick from hundreds of different styles. Basically, the right combination of the 4 C’s (cut, clarity, color, and, carat) for your preference and budget.
Pick the perfect solitaire engagement ring from the comfort of your own home, without salesy people trying to get you to make a decision!
The GIA Diamond Grading Report is one of the most-known reports, which is where the 4 C’s come from. This assessment and documentation includes an analysis of the diamond’s 4Cs – along with a plotted diagram of its clarity characteristics.
