Different ways to buy diamond and what to be aware of:

Buying Diamonds Online

Where you buy your diamond is very important. In person, you can see how the diamond performs, how it looks, and how it sparkles. Shopping at a brick-and-mortar jewelry store enables you to examine the diamond. The jeweler should show you the diamond under magnification in its intended setting, as well as from different angles. If you do opt to purchase your diamond online, make sure you are buying from a reputable website, and that you see your diamond before you buy. Read the diamond description and fine print very carefully to ensure it is a natural diamond, not lab-made, and familiarize yourself with the payment and return policy. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is.

Buying from the Public

Buying diamonds on a public forum such as Craig’s List, Facebook Marketplace or Offer Up may seem appealing as people try to resell their old or unwanted jewelry at a substantial discount. Should you decide to purchase your diamond jewelry via a public forum, keep these safety tips in mind;

-Always meet in a public place
-NEVER divulge your personal information online or over the phone
-Bring a knowledgeable person with you to oversee the transaction to ensure you are getting
what you are paying for
-All sales are final
