Buying A Diamond Online? Here Is What To Remember For Delivery

Buying a diamond is not an impulse purchase and nor is it a cheap purchase. It is an expensive buy and usually bought to signify the happening of a major event in life, such as ones engagement. It is therefore important to be selective and determine where to buy the diamond from, carefully. When it comes to buying diamonds, the most important thing to ensure is that you are buying from a reputed, reliable, and authentic website. While everyone checks the website out for the quality of their diamonds, one thing that people think about and research is as to the quality of diamonds. However, given that most people nowadays are choosing to buy diamonds online, it is important to also check as to how the delivery of the website you are ordering from works. The worst thing that can happen to you is for your beautiful diamond piece to get lost or to never reach you, and for you to be unable to track as to what is happening to it.

 

I am planning to order a diamond online. What should I keep track of, when I do so?

As there is plenty of information available already on how to gauge the quality of the diamonds, this article will focus on one aspect of purchasing a diamond online which is often ignored – the actual delivery. Here are the aspects that you need to keep in mind when it comes to getting a diamond delivered to your home from an online store.

 

  • Take into account the shipping time: If your piece is a custom made piece, it will probably take longer than the ones that are displayed and available to be shipped immediately. Ensure that you look at how long the shipping time is, to make sure that your diamond has not overshot the expected delivery date.
  • Only buy from websites that offer a tracking number for the shipment: A lot of websites have begun to ship parcels and then to disclaim responsibility when it does not reach you and when the parcel itself cannot be tracked. One way to avoid this with as expensive a purchase such as diamonds would be to ensure that you give your business only to websites that do offer you a tracking number.
  • Ensure that it is insured: Diamonds are tremendously expensive and irrespective of everything else going right, you do not want to be in a situation where an uncontrollable situation has led to the loss of your diamond. Purchase from a company that either automatically insures, or allows you to insure your diamond as an opt in.
  • Free delivery: Buy a diamond get free shipping should ideally be the policy of every company that is in the diamond sale business. If you are spending so much money, the least that you are entitled to is at least free shipping. Try and save a bit on the shipping costs and add that to your ring by buying from a company that allows you this option. It makes sense!

 

If you keep track of all of this, you can ensure that you get the best possible diamond for yourself, without having to worry about the hassle of delivery.
