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.

True Facet

TRUE FACET

Visit Site

Considering True Facet for your jewelry purchase? Right from the start, you're going to have an experience unlike any other jewelry store: True Facet is the only merchant in our review that offers pre-owned jewelry (either listed or on consignment), as well as a boutique for brand-new items directly from partner brands. This means that this jewelry store is strictly online; you won't find a showroom or other retail location, as they serve primarily as the broker between you and the individual seller and/or manufacturer.

Does the thought of buying used jewelry make you nervous? True Facet sets your mind at ease with an authenticity promise: the sellers send each item to True Facet, whose experts examine it and any accompanying documentation to make sure it's authentic. If you're not satisfied when you get it, you can return it and get a refund.

Of course, because the pre-owned items are coming from individuals, one customer complaint is that this jewelry store's inventory fluctuates. If you see something you love but take a day or two to think it over, it's possible that it'll be gone when you go back to the site. Naturally, this doesn't apply to the boutique jewelry items that are sold directly from the manufacturer.

When you create a True Facet account or subscribe to their email newsletter, you can get a credit of $50 towards your first purchase of $200+. True Facet also saves you money by offering free FedEx and UPS shipping within the US.

On the downside, this merchant's return policy is very restrictive: you only have 7 business days from the time you received your jewelry, but the good news is that True Facet covers the return shipping costs.

Does True Facet deliver? It depends on who you ask. If you look at their Google ratings on the website, it would seem that the answer is "yes": lots of 5-star reviews with no comments or complaints. But when you read the negative comments there or on the Better Business Bureau listing - where, disappointingly, True Facet has a less-than-inspiring "C+" grade - you'll find customers who received big-ticket items that proved not to be authentic, who had issues with their shipping process, and who had a hard time getting a satisfactory response from the business.

Perhaps True Facet is experiencing growing pains, only being in business for four years. In the world of Jewelry Stores, they're just starting out. And, the idea of being able to get a good price on an expensive piece of jewelry by buying from its previous owner has promise. But, True Facet will need to demonstrate some improvements in their process and in their customer service to improve in our rankings.

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.

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!
