More and more people opt to buy jewelry online as the benefits of doing so become more widely known. But unfortunately, the scammers and con artists know that that is the case. However, by keeping yourself up to date with new information regarding safe online shopping, you can stay one-step ahead of them, or even two.
So now the question arises, why would you then want to buy jewelry online, if it is such a risk, especially with jewelry auction rip-offs? There are many advantages to buying jewelry online, of which the price will be the biggest motivator and secondly because of the chance of finding exclusive jewelry that is unlikely to be found in a general jewelry shop.
However, apart from the many advantages of buying jewelry online such as discounted prices, the convenience of shopping at home, the ability to compare different pieces at different prices all at once and not having sales people trying to persuade you to make an impulsive purchase, the disadvantages are just as real. Fraudulent behavior of online sellers is not limited to jewelry only, it is a general risk with any online purchase.

Nevertheless, there are steps you can take to insure that when you buy jewelry online, you can do it with success and peace of mind. Simple tips that you can keep in mind when you buy jewelry online can prevent you from having a bad experience.
There is ample free information available on the authenticity of jewelry and what you need to be on the lookout for. Make an effort to do some research on the website you are likely to buy from. Search for reviews and marketing methods other than online advertising. Are the suppliers associated with any consumer related agencies or with the Better Business Bureau? Should you need to contact them in person, do they have a physical address and is it confirmed?
Prior to going online, make a firm decision as to how much you are prepared to spend and what you want to spend your money on. Admiring all the beautiful jewelry online can become overpowering, especially with the attractive price tags. Before you take the step and send the payment for a piece of precious gemstone jewelry, save yourself some unhappiness upfront and ask the seller to provide you with a certified grading report, which you need to verify. This may result in taking longer to hold the piece in your hand, but is worth every second of waiting.
What do you do if, in the event when you receive the jewelry, it does not meet your expectations? What does the return policy involve? If there is a “no questions asked, 30-day money-back guarantee”, you are more likely to be satisfied with your purchase. In the event that you return any item, make sure that you insure it for its full value and ask for a delivery confirmation.
