Buying Diamonds - Christmas 2011

Published Date: 5th Dec, 2011

Thanksgiving has just gone by and the excitement for Christmas has started. Every festive season brings much to celebrate for, and is also the busiest shopping time of the year. You may not disagree with me that diamonds are always in demand and the perfect way for you to share the Christmas spirit with your loved ones.

Diamond jewelry becomes an easy gifting choice, as you can get so many options (from diamond shapes to diamond settings) to choose from. Diamond earrings, diamond pendants, diamond necklaces, diamond bracelets and diamond rings form the list of most popular jewelry piece among woman.

Various diamond jewelry stores will try to grab your attention with offers, sales, discount, free shipping along with information center located right on the online retailers webpage, jewelry exchange offer, new collection launch and what not.

So, to help you out in shopping your jewelry, I’ve put together a little guide to the top trends of 2011.

After zeroing on the choice of gift, then starts the difficult part of finding the gift with best quality and at the right price. Joy of shopping doubles up when we know we are getting value of our money.

Many jewelry houses are launching their collection online, as many shoppers prefer to do online jewelry shopping in order to avoid long queues and waiting period. Time, convenience, much more readily available information and inventory make online diamond jewelry shopping an easy option. You can in fact find jewelry at great prices online as there is no overhead expenses like showroom maintenance expense or salesperson commission etc.

Always ask yourself what you want to do. Would you like to buy your jewelry from a jewelry store where a salesperson is trying to sell you a high commission item, or would like to make a much more informed and wise decision from an online store with a great options to choose, at more affordable prices?

This season browse the online stores for various collection and offers, and let your fingers do the walking and do perfect jewelry gift shopping for you.

I’m listing down some of the collections launched and attractive offers available online this season.

  • Samuels Jewelers have introduced Infinity Heart Collection. This collection is a perfect way to show anyone you love what they truly mean to you!

  • James Allen is an online jewelry retailer particularly known for its diamond collection. This store has made its name by its exclusive designer jewelry collection (spectacular designer Micro-pave diamond rings and striking Butterfly Ring Collection), free shipping, regular discounts and customer service. The online store allows you to create your own diamond gifts by choosing the diamond shape, setting and metal. You can further personalize your gift by engraving your name or something personal.
  • Cartier is a luxury brand which can symbolize your prestige, status and confidence. It offers designer diamond jewelry, designer watches, leather goods, fragrances and high end personalized gifts. Have a look at Cartier online store and check the holiday collection where you might get something that you are looking for.
  • Zales have beautiful Christmas jewelry collection, so do have a look at zales diamond engagement rings. If you want to buy an elaborate gift this Christmas but don't think you can pay for it all at once, then try Zales Credit Card. It is only accepted at Zales stores, and has low-interest payment plans. This credit card is a good deal if you want to pay off your purchase over a period time. But make sure you pay the balance amount on time and in full. You can also try online gift cards, select a e-Gift Card that is emailed to the recipient within 24 hours or select a traditional Zales Gift Card that is shipped to the recipient.

But, be careful of jewelers' credit cards like Macy’s credit card which has many complaints of charging huge rate of interest and high late payment charges. So, clarify all details before using any such credit card.

As an informed buyer, do your homework before jumping on any offer or any attractive sales-pitch. Compare various offers available online and then decide which offers suits you the best. But you must take few precautions while purchasing jewelry from online stores. Read more about online jewelry buying.
