Get set to buy your jewellery online at Jos Alukkas
Everybody loves a good gift. Even better when there is a precious piece of jewellery inside that gift-wrapped box. Shopping online is a norm now. Shopping for jewellery, even more so. If you are not sure about picking up a good piece of jewellery online, here are some tips to ensure you make a great choice.
Know the recipient’s taste in jewellery: Every person has a distinct taste in jewellery. It is important that you take time out to observe this before you make a selection for them. The person you want to present this gift to may love delicate pieces for everyday use. Others prefer traditional and heavy jewellery for special occasions. A few others like only specific kinds of ornaments like finger rings, bracelets, bangles or necklaces. Understand the recipient’s taste and then begin to explore options online.
Getting the size right: Now here is the tricky part. If you are looking to gift jewellery, you may not want to directly ask for the appropriate size. What you may do in such cases is enlist the help of other close friends; try and get your hands on a relevant piece from the recipient’s collection and take measurements. Use these to compare against measurement charts that are provided online. Ring size charts will offer the option of finger measurements on the outside or the inner circumference of the ring. Bangle sizes are usually measured to determine how much area is occupied by the bangle. You may use a thread or a flexible tape to determine sizes.
Payment options: Once you have made your choice, you move on to the next and usually final stage, that of payment and packaging. Ensure that the service provider you are looking at has a secure mode of online payment. The presence of SSL encryption technology usually means a safe payment gateway. Do keep in mind that with precious metals and stones, prices are subject to the fluctuations of the market. These may change if you do not pick up your piece of jewellery soon. You may easily opt to have your jewellery gift wrapped and delivered to its recipient, right from the comfort of your home.
Now, despite these useful tips, there may be many of you who would not want to leave things to chance. Rather than pick something that your loved one may not like, you may prefer giving them the flexibility of choosing something for themselves. That is where gift cards will be very useful. These are available in a range of denominations allowing you a great budget to work with.
