If you're in the habit of ordering virtually everything online, you are not alone. Despite the convenience of online shopping, however, some products are still best bought in person. Jewelry remains one of them. Whether you're in the market for a luxurious watch or a stunning engagement ring, here are some of the biggest reasons to purchase your jewelry from a brick-and-mortar store. 

Why Should You Make Jewelry Purchases In Person?

1. Evaluate Each Piece Accurately 

It's impossible to determine with 100% certainty whether a piece of jewelry will meet your needs by looking at photographs alone. If you're buying a diamond, for example, you can't be sure of its color, cut, or clarity until you've seen it in person from all angles. Even videos can't present a totally accurate depiction, because the way the light bounces off each edge or passes through each channel cannot be captured on film. 


2. Return for Resizing 

Most reputable jewelry stores are happy to include resizing in the purchase price. If you buy a piece of jewelry online and it turns out it doesn't fit, you're going to have to take it somewhere to get sized, and you'll have to cover the additional cost in the process. What's more, having it resized by a third party could void the warranty issued by the online retailer. 

3. Work With Knowledgeable Professionals

Perhaps you're not entirely sure what kind of jewelry you want. Whether buying a piece for yourself or a loved one, the store's staff will be happy to help you find the perfect item. Simply share your budget and any parameters you have, like the type of metal or kind of stone you want, and the jeweler will be able to show you everything they have that meets your needs.
