Zales

ZALES Visit Site

Zale's Jewelry stores can be found in malls all across America, and they are a familiar name in the world of retail jewelry. Zale's offers a huge assortment of jewelry, from necklaces to watches, earrings, bracelets and of course, rings. Part of the Zale's ring product line is customizable class rings.

The Zale's website, like the other jewelry stores we have reviewed in this category, is a basic no frills menu driven shopping site. Users select from a large number of categories and then navigate to the sub-category they are looking for. Under the rings category we found the link for class rings fairly quickly. The selection on the class rings page included 74 main styles of ring for men and women ranging from just under $100 to over $1300. The options are sortable by price and there are filters as expected where users can see the rings by gender, stone style, metal type, and ring size or price range.

The customization page is very basic and is less instructive than we would have liked. Instead of guiding the user through a step by step customization process, once the main style of ring is selected a list of drop down menus appear where the various choices are presented. The school name field is a manual input by the customer, as opposed from those sites that have extensive lists of schools to choose from. This allows for typing errors that could be carried over to the manufacturing of the product.

Users can choose stone color and cut, and select from a fairly small number of side panel art for any ring types that have side panels. There is no picture of the product that updates as the options are selected like we have seen with some of the other customization interfaces. Once the fields are all populated the user approves the ring design and it is added to the shopping cart website.

When it comes to class rings, Zale's is just another average jewelry store that offers a very basic and limited customization process. There are a decent number of options of ring styles and there is nothing specifically wrong with the product, it's just hard to get excited about the Zale's class ring offering when they are better options out there.

Limoges

LIMOGES Visit Site

Limoges Jewelers is a jewelry seller that offers a custom class ring product online. Like Kay, Limoges does not specialize in class rings, but offers it as a part of their overall product line. There is actually a small section for graduation gifts on the class ring page yearbooks.

On the main Limoges website there is a link to their customizable class ring page. The look and feel of the page is a fairly standard web shopping page, with the number of items listed at the top and then filters and sort options for users to narrow down the options. On the class ring page, there are 185 different types of customizable class rings. This is a lot of options compared to some of the other class ring sites, and likely due to the larger inventory of jewelry that a company like Limoges has compared to the class ring specialists.

The cost at Dunham is quite low compared to most of the other class ring companies we reviewed. There are rings here for as low as $39.99 that can be customized with a basic text like the name of the school and the graduation year. The highest priced basic ring we saw was less than $400 so Limoges is catering to the bargain shoppers.

Perhaps one of the reasons the cost structure at Limoges is so low is due to the most basic customization system we have seen. Instead of selecting from a list of high schools and colleges provided on the website like we see at so many of the class ring specialists, the user manually types the name of the school into a text box. The image of the selected ring is on the left so you can see the text as it will appear on the ring, but we think this system is ripe for typos and mistakes that could make it to production of the ring.

For stone selection, the 12 birthstone options are available, but there is no option to select a certain cut of stone like so many other class ring sites offer. Then for any of the rings that offer side designs, we found the selection to be quite small. The basic sport and academic categories are there, but within each category we didn't see as many variations as we are used to seeing.

Most of the customized rings say they will ship in 6-8 weeks, which is fairly standard with personalized jewelry. We saw some consumer reviews saying their orders actually took longer than this, and some others that noted unhelpful customer service. Also, we saw more than one review complaining that the quality of the jewelry was low, and that errors were present in the orders on delivery.

Perhaps for anyone in the market for a low-cost class ring option should consider Limoges, but we can't recommend them very highly due to questionable quality and customer service, and a lackluster customization process.

Continued from above

Many of us remember the two different ring choices, male or female, in a small selection of metal types and one gem stone color. Today, one class ring company may offer 100 different looks with endless customization options. No matter what activities you want represented on your ring, the cost or look, the options are endless.

However, with a decent list of class ring provider's shoppers need to look closely at which company they put their faith in as there can be big difference between the shopping experience and outcome.

When selecting a class ring provider, you need to consider a few things. Some of these include:

  • Cost. Even among online class ring stores, costs can vary. You want to find a company that offers a wide array of class rings at the right price
  • Selection. Some class ring companies offer a few different class ring options, while others provide a huge list. You'll want to shop at a store with a large enough selection that you can find the right class ring for you.
  • Customer Service. From return policies to free shipping, customer experience and warranty policies, you want to shop from a class ring company that caters to their client's needs.
