Reasons to Buy Your Engagement Ring from a Store
Buying an engagement ring is a crucial milestone in our lives. Whether you are purchasing a ring to surprise your partner or have them accompany you to make their choice, an engagement ring purchase should not be taken lightly. This task requires time and effort, which is why you should know the best places to buy the perfect engagement ring.
Many jewelry stores worldwide sell engagement rings online, but it's still best for you to buy one directly from a store. Visiting a jewelry store in person may seem like an inconvenience but visiting a store like London Gold in person has many great benefits:
- Know What You’re Getting
Jewelers who sell engagement rings online will post pictures and descriptions of their products. These details are essential to attract customers and convince them to buy online. While pictures and descriptions show the ring’s appearance and the materials, these details cannot assure customers of the ring’s quality and craftsmanship.
When you buy an engagement ring from a jeweler, like London Gold, you have a 360-degree view of the piece. You can try on engagement rings to find one that suits you and fits well — something that you cannot do with an engagement ring purchased online.
Moreover, buying from our brick-and-mortar store guarantees that each piece is genuine. We only sell real diamonds, never ones made from fluorescence. Fluorescence resembles diamonds but is cheaper and has less value.
- Have Access to On-Site Jewelers
Buying an engagement ring requires long-term responsibility. Once you own one, you should have the piece regularly cleaned, inspected, or repaired, if needed. The money you spend will go down the drain if you do not properly maintain it.
Buying an engagement ring from a jewelry store like London Gold grants access to on-site jewelers that can clean, inspect and repair your jewelry. Our customers can have their rings cleaned, inspected, and repaired in our Scottsdale, Chandler, or Arrowhead locations. Having engagement rings cleaned or repaired by online stores is possible, but less convenient and rare. Customers have to send their rings out by mail to the manufacturers themselves and may wait for weeks or months to have them returned. This process can be stressful and poses the risks of loss or theft during shipment.
- Get Expert Advice
With the number of designs, colors, and stones available for engagement rings today, it’s common to feel overwhelmed. Narrowing down your options can become a struggle since there are so many beautiful engagement rings to consider. Choosing just one is tough!
Our London Gold team can provide expert advice to help you decide whether you want a ring that’s simple or one that’s adorned with several stones.
Our experts can help you choose an engagement ring that best fits your lifestyle, aesthetic, and budget. Online stores might have chatbots that can give you advice on which ring to buy, but it’s always better to make conversation with actual human beings who will understand your needs and have years of experience.
- Build Professional Relationships
After buying an engagement ring, you will likely have to buy a wedding band. Wedding bands formalize the beautiful union between two people and symbolize their marriage.
Since jewelers with brick-and-mortar stores strive to create a healthy relationship with customers, selecting engagement rings from us will make it easier for you to choose wedding bands in the future.
After a customer selects an engagement ring from London Gold, our jewelers will already have an idea of their preferences and can suggest a wedding band that compliments their engagement ring.
Unlike buying from online stores, buying an engagement ring from an established London Gold jewelry store creates healthy, professional relationships between our jewelers and our customers. This relationship encourages customers to buy different jewelry pieces in the future for anniversaries, birthdays, and other milestones!
Choose to Buy In-Store
Using online stores may seem more convenient, but nothing compares to seeing a piece of jewelry in-person and trying it on! It is not the same experience, and you can be sure you love your ring! Choose our stores to make selection, repairs, and cleanings of your engagement ring safe and convenient for you.
To get your money’s worth on an engagement ring that meets your expectations, it’s always best to buy your engagement ring from a trusted jeweler.
