What's the best Jewelry Store? Every year, almost 40 million people shop online for jewelry - and with good reason! Why stand in line for over an hour during a peak season like Valentine's Day or Mother's Day, hoping that there might be something she'd like, when you can shop any time of day (or night) and get the world's best selection while sitting in your living room?

Today's best online jewelry stores make it almost unthinkable to shop at a local store. The lack of overhead with online jewelry means that they can bring you prices as much as 50% lower than what you'd find elsewhere. When you add in free shipping, extended return periods, and the same certifications and guarantees you get from a local jeweler, and it's easy to see why it makes sense to buy jewelry from an online store.

JEWELRY Visit Site

Owned by Warren Buffett's The Richline Group and proudly declaring itself as "the largest jewelry manufacturer in the world", Jewelry has been offering "best of web pricing" on thousands of items for more than 15 years.

Unlike the majority of the jewelry stores we've shopped, Jewelry takes a very low-key approach to sales. When you first visit the site, you'll only see a few featured jewelry items to pique your curiosity, not row after row of images trying to get you to click. Already know what you're looking for? You'll probably need to click on the somewhat vaguely-named heading of Jewelry; most other jewelry stores break that heading out into categories. Why not this one? Because Jewelry has a unique focus on designers and collections.

Some of the renowned designers whose work is featured on Jewelry are:

  • Van Kempen
  • Sajen
  • Cristina Sabatini
  • Honora
  • Crysalis
  • Zoccai 925
  • Kabana
  • American West

Jewelry also offers a Collections page; you may find something whimsical like Star Wars or sparkly like Crystaluxe. You may enjoy browsing the New Arrivals and Deals headings, depending on whether you'd like to see what's trending or what's on sale.

For the typical shopper, it's the Jewelry page that gets the most attention. You can select specific categories from the drop-down, such as necklaces, rings, and earrings, or specific metal types like gold or silver. Shopping by price range is also available - especially helpful if you're shopping on a budget and don't know quite what you want to get that special someone. If you're looking for something on the spendier side, you can click on the "$500+" category under the Jewelry heading. When we shopped at this store, the most expensive item they carried was a 4 Ct diamond bracelet for $2,381, though the original price was shown as almost $12,000!

Also, unlike many online jewelry stores, this retailer doesn't have a huge focus on engagement and wedding rings. They do offer them, but you'll have to do a little more clicking to get there. (Hint: click on Jewelry, then on Rings when you get the dropdown. You'll then need to hunt down the tiny "Filter By" towards the right side of the page. From there, you can click on wedding/anniversary or engagement, whichever you need.)

Jewelry keeps pace with the competition by offering free shipping on all orders, and with a 30-day return policy as long as the jewelry is in original, unused condition with all packaging and tags.

Unsurprisingly, Jewelry's customer feedback is also so low-key as to be almost unnoticeable. There were no testimonials on the website, practically no reviews anywhere else online, and a solid, reputable "A" grade with the Better Business Bureau. Maybe Jewelry just doesn't like to brag?

At the end of the day, though, being backed by such a large conglomerate as Berkshire Hathaway is nothing to easily dismiss, especially with a great reputation with the BBB. We think that Jewelry is a good choice for shoppers who want something unique and perhaps a little colorful, though not necessarily the best for couples waiting to say "I do" because of their limited focus on engagement and wedding rings and sets.

Jeulia

JEULIA Visit Site

When you first visit the Jeulia online store, you will probably be intrigued by the different types and styles of jewelry that they sell. Stackable bracelets, Pandora-style charms, and couple's rings are just a few examples of the attractive pieces offered by this retailer.

You may also be drawn in by Jeulia's promotions. At the time of our review, there were several discount offers at the top of the page (such as $30 off $180+ or $10 off $100+), and shipping is always free on every order.

But, a well-done website with photos of pretty pendants, elegant earrings, and charming charms means little when a company doesn't back what they sell. Here's where Jeulia's problems begin.

First, even though Jeulia used to have offices in California, they now operate from one location - in Hong Kong. Some customers said that their orders took weeks to deliver, and the tracking information provided by the seller was actually invalid.

We also would have liked to be reassured by Jeulia's one-year warranty and 30-day returns policies. But, when we tried to call the toll-free number on the Jeulia site, we weren't able to get a live representative; all of our menu selections took us to a recorded message. Given that you can only return your items if you can get in contact with a company representative - and that you'll be responsible for return shipping costs to Hong Kong if you do want a refund - this policy might not do you any good.

Finally, all of the gemstones on the Jeulia site are manufactured in a laboratory. The company has changed much of its wording on the site; they don't call the stones "diamonds" but now say that they are a "diamond white" color. That's more transparent than before.

Unfortunately, the biggest negative for Jeulia is their rating with the Better Business Bureau: a failing grade of "F". It is rare for a business to have that low of a grade, but Jeulia does. Why? According to the BBB, Jeulia was asked to respond to numerous customer complaints - not receiving purchases, not being able to get a response regarding orders or refunds - as well as to defend their site's advertising of lowest prices and money-back guarantee. Jeulia never responded to the BBB.

As the lowest-ranked jewelry store in our review, Jeulia is more likely to disappoint that delight. We recommend that you consider a jeweler with a much better reputation for your next purchase.

Continued from above

Of course, not every jewelry store is the same. Some specialize in "fashion" or "costume" jewelry; if you're looking for an inexpensive piece just to add some sparkle to a fun evening, or maybe an imitation item that won't break your heart if it gets lost, this type of jewelry might be perfect. Those stores are less likely to sell luxury, high-priced jewelry with precious metals and gemstones, however - so you may need to select a store that specializes in heirloom-quality craftsmanship and materials.

As you begin your search for the ideal online jewelry store, what should you keep in mind? Here are several criteria that can help you make your decision:

  • Selection. What does the store carry? Is it a limited range of rings, necklaces and earrings, or do they have options for men and children too?
  • Prices. How does the jewelry store measure up to the competition? Do they offer free shipping, pop-up discount offers, or any other promotions?
  • Quality. What do customers say about the jewelry they've purchased? Does it last, or have stones fallen out after a few wears? Are items marked as "diamond" authentic, or are they synthetic stones?
  • Return Policy. If you don't like the necklace, ring, or watch after you've received it, can it be returned? Will you have to pay a restocking fee?
  • Reputation. Are customers generally happy with their experience, both with the jewelry they received and with the customer service department if help was needed? Is the company easy to reach if there's a problem? Does the store have a rating with the BBB?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best jewelry stores available today. Whether you're shopping for an engagement ring, a necklace for your significant other, or just a new bit of sparkle to add to your collection, we hope these reviews will help you find the right piece of jewelry at the right price!
