Buying Moissanite Online

Dozens of online retailers sell moissanite. Here are a few tips for putting your mind and money at ease before you buy.

Buying Moissanite Online

With online sales of jewelry set to increase 30% from 2006 to 2007, it's clear that consumers have discovered the convenience and exceptional value in purchasing jewelry online. Here's what to look for in a moissanite retailer.

What To Look For

  • Company Reputation & History - How long has the company been in operation? Are they well respected members of their community? Are they listed with the Better Business Bureau, members of jewelry trade organizations, or BizRate?
  • Return Policy - Most jewelers offer a 30-day return / exchange policy. Make sure your moissanite purchase may be returned if it doesn't fit your needs.
  • Customer Service - Responsive and available customer service is what you deserve. Don't settle for doing business with a company that doesn't care enough to reply to your phone calls and emails.
  • Security - A reputable online retailer must offer secure socket layer [SSL] technology for secure transactions. Don't enter any credit card or personal billing information on a website without it.
  • Privacy - How does the retailer protect and manage your personal information? Will your retailer re-sell your name, address and email account to another retailer or marketing firm? Look for a clearly stated privacy policy.
