In today’s point and click world, when you are buying online you really can’t see the quality of the gemstone or workmanship.
Never buy from a site that does not have a no-questions-asked return policy. Imagine buying a ring from a site that has no return policy and then finding out that it can’t be sized due to the design. Or buying an antique ring stated to have rose cut diamonds and a natural emerald only to find out it’s actually a modern reproduction using a diamond look-a-like and the green stone is aventurine quartz not emerald.
Look for a GIA or AGSL Diamond Grading Report (improperly called a certified diamond on-line) with the diamond. GIA and AGSL are the most trusted gem grading labs around.
Look for at least a 30-Day Money Back Guarantee. Verify the terms of the 30-day money back guarantee as it gives you time to make sure your purchase is perfect. If you need to return it for any reason, the seller may provide you with an exchange or full refund.
Always have your purchases authenticated by a qualified independent gemologist/appraiser to make sure you got what you paid for and to verify the diamond matches the grading report detailing the quality represented by the on-line store.
As an “independent” appraiser, we are not affiliated with any retail establishment or jewelry manufacturer, and we do not buy or sell jewelry. We represent you, the client, exclusively.
Some on-line sellers, as well as, brick & mortar stores may allow your purchase to be shipped directly to our gem lab prior to your payment so an independent appraisal can be performed before you commit to buying it.
Confidence comes with knowing what you have and knowing what it’s worth!
