Have You Been A Victim Of Shrewd Traditional Jewelers?

by Kasey Edgerton June 28, 2016

When was the last time you set foot in a traditional brick and mortar jewelry store? Did they make a sales pitch about additional features to you as you stood at the register ready to cash out? Did you buy it? Was your bill suddenly $200 more than you thought it was going to be? Did they ask you about other pieces that you have, and convince you to bring them in to get “restored”?  Well for say, a white gold ring, to be “restored” , that typically includes a $40 Rhodium dipping , about $30 to tighten all of the prongs, $10 a prong if you want them all re-tipped, $20 to polish the ring, and oh I bet they talked you into a $35 engraving while you’re at it. You know, to personalize it. Bam, just like that you’re hit for $135 for a restoration that may have never crossed your mind as necessary until it was so nicely pointed out to you.

Oh so you’re looking to purchase an engagement ring? Great! And you want blue diamonds along the sides, and a heart cut center stone? Well, then there might be exactly one option in stock for you…that’s if you’re lucky. Brick and mortar jewelry stores have limited space, that’s just an obvious fact. They can only display a limited selection, and it’s usually dominated by whatever promotions/campaigns they are currently pushing. If you’re looking for originality, just forget about it. They sell the same few engagement rings over and over until your special symbol of love blends in with half the town. Your only other option is a lengthy customization process which can take several months, cost an arm and a leg, and oftentimes become so discouraging you decide to give up on the idea altogether.
