Discount Diamond Rings – When is a Bargain Not Really a Bargain?
I know that you want discount diamond rings now! Can I request you to slow down a bit so you don’t end up losing money while thinking that you are making a saving… ?
How will this happen you ask? A discount is a discount right? Not necessarily! A discount is defined as “the deduction off the price of an item”. This definition should only apply when you know the original price of an item. Most discount diamond jewelry you’ll find online isn’t really discounted. They just claim to be & most people don’t check because it seems that you are getting a bargain.
Lets’ make sure that you do get a real discount by following a few things.
Things to look out for
As we mentioned above, to get discount diamond rings, make sure www.nsluxury.com that you know the original price of the diamond ring you are after so that you can compare it with the discounted price. If the original price was $2,500 and you get a 10% discount, the new price should be $2,250. However is you don’t know the original price and you find the same ring with an “original” price of $3,000 and it has been discounted by 15%, the new price will be $2,550. This means that you will pay more than you should have paid if you were tracking the item and keeping tabs on its price.Do not get caught up in the heat of the moment and part with your credit card to quickly… a bit of caution pays off!
Not every merchant does this but it’s your money so be cautious especially when the online merchant doesn’t have a track record.
Do you know your 4Cs? I know that this keeps coming up whenever the topic of diamonds comes up but it’s important none the less. Why? Well if you don’t know the quality of your diamonds and you are shopping for say… discount diamond wedding rings, you will get some great bargains but the quality of the stones might be so low that you are doing the merchant a favour by buying them.
You want to get the best possible color, clarity, and carat/size for the least cost or amount of money in order to be shopping for discount diamond rings. The first three C’s don’t have to all be sync. You can get good color and clarity but small size or good clarity, big size and low color. Once you understand them, you’ll be in a position of power when you are buying your diamond rings
You also need to know your metals in order to understand your diamond ring settings. A good diamond needs to be set in gold, platinum or titanium. If it is set in any other metal, ask questions. The reason diamonds are set in those metals is because they enhance or add to the value of the ring. It’s like taking the body of a Ferrari and putting a 2,000CC Toyota engine in it. The car will look good but it won’t perform to save your life!
