How can you choose a jewelry ring online? Buying a ring in person can be bad enough when there is so much choice – the thought of buying one online can send people running for the hills! But there is no need to worry. Just follow some simple steps, and you will be buying online with confidence.
Know your Stats
When you are in person, you can try before you buy. This is not possible online – even if you can return things, it still makes more of a long and awkward process. Because of this, it is very important that you know the exact measurements you are after. Know what size your finger is, and check that whatever site you are using has the same measurements available. This will make it much easier to ensure that when you order your rings online, you will be able to wear them immediately after they arrive.
What material do you want your ring to be made out of? Most people choose a particular metal, but there is also glass, shell, and leather, among other things. Your online experience will be much more streamlined and coherent if you go in knowing some few facts beforehand. Knowing that you prefer silver to gold, for example, or knowing that you want something a little more unusual in terms of the material your ring is made of can help in cutting down the number of options any jewelry site will give you.
What type of ring do you want? Do want a simple design or a more complicated one? I simple design could mean a simple brushed band, or maybe a single precious stone; a complicated one could mean that you have a design that takes up a lot of space, or that the ring itself incorporates other elements beyond what makes up the ring itself. When thinking about this, you also have to consider whether or not you want other materials involved – in the complex design in a different material or the same one? All of this helps to narrow your focus in online searches
What, if any, adornment do you want on your ring? Many people adopt an ‘I’ll know it if\when I see it’ approach to their jewelry, but for people who like taking a more focused approach, knowing what precious stones they want can make the ordering process much easier.
So – do you want diamonds? Rubies? Emeralds and one single, solitary topaz? Most of these will be options – including the option of having no precious stones – in any good jewelry site search. If you are absolutely sure about what kind of glitter you want in your fashion rings, it will make your life much easier.
Finally, you do need to think about how suitable your chosen ring will be for your own life. If you work with your hands, then (however much you might like it) that raised 3D dragon’s head ring may not be for you. Think about whether or not you want precious stones that stand proud of the ring, or are set into the metal. Do you want a design, or do you think that this would get in the way? Does the shape of your ring make it difficult to get on and off? You should take all of this into account when buying a ring.
