CRUCIAL ADVICE on Choosing Wedding Rings ONLINE
So, how do you go about successfully purchasing your wedding rings online? Here we have put together an in-depth article encompassing all the issues and potential pitfalls you may encounter when buying wedding rings using this method. Remember, we are here to help you, and with over ten years of experience in selling wedding rings online, there is nothing we don't know on this subject.
Buying your wedding rings online
Buying your wedding rings online will be something entirely new to most of us, and it is crucial that you get everything correct right from the start. Wedding rings tend to be a made to order item for most couples to show their devotion to one another. Buying your wedding rings online seems like a bad idea, but the advantages do come to light once you look into this option a little further.
t never ceases to amaze us how many of our customers decide to order their wedding rings at a very late stage in the preparations for their marriage. Wedding planning is key to everything going smoothly, and you should plan the purchase of your rings well in advance of your wedding day. We would recommend allowing at least two months and maybe longer if you can when it comes to deciding upon your wedding rings and making the initial purchase. However, at Love2Have, we are very flexible and have managed to turn around some of our made to order rings within the space of a week. Usually, this is down to another jeweller letting these couples down, so if you find yourself in this situation don't despair, we can help you out, whatever the reason - even very, very tight deadlines. We once had a couple contact us two days before a wedding after such an incident, and managed to post out both rings on time. The rings were both made to order to the highest of quality from titanium and saved the day.
The imported wedding rings that you find in the high street stores and chains are in our opinion, look rather samey. At Love2Have we can cater to your individual needs by providing you with something entirely different from the norm but also of a very high-quality. Why not browse our site to find a wedding ring made in the UK that you can fall in love with, whether it be a new ring in titanium or steel or something more traditional in say gold or silver. Check out our titanium wedding rings or wooden inlay wedding rings too. There is no need to be nervous about buying a wedding ring online.
We do know that one of the most significant concerns is that of getting your finger size measured correctly. Firstly let us look at all of the wrong ways to go about this. Don't use bits of string or paper to guess your ring size. Don't download any scales off the internet to print out - the ones with circular holes that you cut out and slip your fingers into and finally avoid the cheap plastic scales given away for free from some websites. All these above methods can be very inaccurate.
Getting your wedding ring size correct
Another problem we are encountering from time to time is that of high street stores deliberately informing customers of their wrong finger size. We think that if for some reason the assistant at the shop realises that you intend not to buy from them, then they give you the incorrect ring size. There is one particular High Street name regularly mentioned to us who has become a repeat offender of this service. For legal reasons, we can't shame this store, but you will find them in most town centres.
So how do you go about finding your correct ring size? To overcome these issues, we aim to make the ring sizing process easy for our customers and make it hassle-free for them to purchase their dream wedding ring online.
Since all our rings are made to order if customers are unsure about the size, we can send out a professional wedding ring sizer so that they have the opportunity of measuring their fingers in the comfort of their home. Ring sizing is essential, as having your finger measured just once is only a snapshot in time, and that measurement could be as much as a whole size out since your fingers change shape throughout the day. Hands swell in the heat, and your fingers are slightly larger in the afternoon. Cold weather makes your hands shrink and rings will become loose and could fall off and lost if the ring is too big.
Our wedding ring aftersales service
We do offer customers a guarantee and also an after-sales service. If for example, a stone were to fall out we would need to inspect the ring for damage of course. Gold and silver are always prone to scratching no matter which retailer you were to purchase your rings from as they are only metals after all. If looked after carefully these rings will last you a lifetime, but we would suggest avoiding heavy gardening work, etc. If any retailer indicates otherwise, you are misinformed. Our after-sales service for customers includes polishing a refinishing.
Love2Have specialises in handcrafted jewellery with many of our ring designs being wider than those on the high street. Broad rings are becoming increasingly popular as wedding rings, but you may need at least one size bigger if opting for a ring over 5mm wide. As many of our custom designs cannot be re-sized, it is doubly important right from the outset, to get the size correct.
Our advice to those looking to purchase wedding rings from us doesn't add to the stress of the wedding preparations by leaving your rings until the last minute. Give us plenty of time to ensure the sizing is correct so that we can get the rings made with time to spare.
Standout from the crowd, find your unique wedding ring and know that you are supporting small independent designers based here in the UK making beautiful handcrafted pieces of jewellery.
