So you are in the process of getting married and need the dream princess ring, but where do you get it?
There is an array of places, from where you can purchase wedding and engagement rings, but which are best and where can you get the best prices?
Please do yourself a favor and look through this article for some of the places we would recommend, for you to find the perfect ring.
First in line are all your general retail stores, those are great for people who prefer to see the items in physical form first and prefer to actually talk to a person. There are however a couple of downsides to this, one of the major ones being the price. When you opt for regular retail stores you have to factor in an increased price as the owner of the store has to pay for rent, personnel and whatnot. On top of that, they at times don’t have the same suppliers of jewelry as others and thus the price is higher. In terms of where to find those retail stores, you are probably best off going into your city center, most cities with a somewhat decent population should have a jewelry store or multiple of them.
Your second option is to buy the ring in an online store, the internet is flooded with those and unlike like retail stores, you should be able to find some pretty decent prices. To give you an idea of what to look for, here below are a couple.
Online you could also opt for the second hand market, if you don’t mind the ring being either as new or slightly used. However here you want to make sure whatever you buy is certified. The second hand market is filled with all kinds of rings and if you are looking for a particular diamond, you want to make sure that you actually get what you are paying for.
This is why we recommend you look towards the online auctions of the world. Here you not only get mostly new items, but you also get it at discounted prices and if you find the right auctions, the majority of the items will be certified.
Although like with the online stores, there are a ton of auctions and you need to find which fits your needs the best. It is recommended to take your time and perhaps start in a good time. As it can take a while before you find an auction running with exactly the item(s) you are looking for.
To give you an idea of what to look for, we have attached a couple of links here below, to some auctions we recommend.
First off there is of course the most famous version Ebay auctions: (https://www.ebay.com)
