Going Online For Your Jewelry?

Feb 2, 2008
Online stores or online auctions have been part of the shopping trend. People have been very busy nowadays. Shopping online is the only resort for people who would like to buy something yet does not have the time to do so. People have trusted the Internet so much that even buying expensive items such as jewelries is now being done online.

Unwanted events can happen even when buying jewelries from physical jewelry stores. There were several cases reported about jewelry purchases that have gone awry. This has included big ticket items like diamonds and gemstones wherein the buyer ended up in tears because the jewelries they bought was not genuine.

The buyer may choose to return or charge cases against the seller but in the end, the buyer might be accused of switching the jewelry with a fake one and the case is dismissed. How much more when you buy jewelry from an online auction where the presence of buyers and sellers are not necessary? How will you be able to protect yourself in any online jewelry purchase? There are three possible ways to avoid being duped.

* Look at the picture
* Read the feedbacks
* Study the policies.

Almost all online auctions present photographs for the items they are selling. The picture should present and show all the details of the jewelry being offered. If there is any image that is hard to capture with a camera lens, it will be jewelry items.

With all the glitter that will be reflected on the lens of the camera, it is very difficult to get the perfect angle for a clear product shot. A seasoned jeweler knows this and should invest in buying photography equipment or hiring a photographer to take the images of the jewelry.

The site should also provide the exact description of the item to establish confidence and trust between the seller and buyer. If you are thinking of buying gemstones or diamonds, a laboratory certificate must be shown. There are authorities and organizations authorized to issue authenticity and laboratory certificates. If the seller doesn't show one, think twice.

Feedback plays an important role in online auctions' sites. This is where previous buyers and customers leave comments for the next customers to read. This will help you decide whether you would like to proceed with the transaction. Never consider a grade lower than A+. If the seller has a grade lower than A+, then something wrong must have happened in the past and you definitely do not want this to happen to you.

Lastly, study the seller's policies. Be particular with the return policy. Some sellers do not have a return policy and it's not good when you are buying online. You have to be certain that you can always get a refund when the item is not the same thing as the seller described it to be.

Taking heed of the three steps mentioned can help you make sure that you are doing what is proper in any online dealings. So when you click on the submit button you will only have to look forward on the items' arrival and not on troublesome refund and disputes.
