Navigating the Sparkle: A Guide on How to Successfully Buy Diamond Rings Online

You want to buy a diamond ring. You already buy a lot of items online, could you purchase a ring this way too? Yes! Purchasing jewelry online from a trusted retailer is a fantastic way to ensure you are getting a piece of jewelry they will adore. Plus, when you choose to shop online you know the price will be better for your budget. 

There's so many reasons to shop online. The best deals are there. The selection is much wider. The shipping is fast. Shopping online has never been easier or more convenient for jewelry buyers. Of course, there are some drawbacks as well. If you're not careful, you may stumble across one of the less-than-reputable websites that try to trick you. The last thing you want is to put your bank account information in and give it to a scammer. How can you know for sure that you're buying from a reputable online jewelry store and not falling victim to a scam? Follow these three tips from online security experts:

Tip #1 Look for the lock. Look up into the URL bar of the website. The small padlock is known as a SSL, which stands for secure sockets layer. Never buy anything online using your credit card from a site that doesn't have this type of encryption installed. You'll know if the site has SSL because the URL for the site will start with HTTPS, instead of just HTTP. 

Tip #2 Don't overshare. To purchase anything online, you're going to need to share a few details of personal information. It's understandable that the retailer would need your name, address, and credit card number. This is needed to make sure you are who you say you are and that your ring arrives at the correct location. However, you should never need to share personal information like your social security number, birthday, mother's maiden name, or anything else that isn't needed for your purchase. The more personal information a scammer can find out, the easier it is to steal your identity. The key to staying safe is to give up as little personal data as possible.
