When it comes to buying an engagement ring in a major city like Los Angeles, there are many places to shop. However, just as with engagement rings, not all jewelers are created equal. When searching for the best place to buy your engagement ring, there are some things to keep in mind, like the reputation of the jeweler and what services will come with the ring. To help you make a great choice when searching for an engagement ring jeweler, we’ve put together this list of things to look out for during the buying process.

Prioritize Quality and Certification

One of the most important things to look for when buying an engagement ring is high quality, certified materials. This, of course, includes the center stone you’ll be buying. Most people choose a white diamond for their engagement ring, but colorful gemstones are also becoming popular choices. But for both diamonds and gemstones, you’ll want to make sure that your stone comes with proper certification. You should never buy a stone that doesn’t come with official certification from an accredited institution, such as the GIA (Gemological Institute of America). At Bridal Rings, all of our gemstones come with official certification, so our customers can feel comfortable knowing the exact specifications of the gemstones they select.

Additionally, the quality of your stone is important. Diamonds are graded according to the 4Cs: carat, color, clarity, and cut. Which qualities are most important to you will depend on your personal tastes. One thing that’s important to know when choosing a jeweler is that they should help you understand these qualities and guide you to a stone that you will love. Which brings us to our next point: you should expect nothing less than excellent service from your jeweler.

Expect Excellent Service

Buying fine jewelry, such as an engagement ring, is unlike any other buying experience. And for many people, their engagement ring is the first major fine jewelry purchase they’ll make. Buying fine jewelry comes with many considerations, like how durable the materials of the ring are, what the exact quality of the ring is, and what styles are available. Your jeweler should guide you through the buying process and help you easily understand your options, as well as help you find styles you like.

At Bridal Rings, excellent customer service is our top priority. We take great care to make sure each of our customers has the best possible shopping experience. Each of our staff members is a trusted diamond expert who strives to give our customers a concierge experience. We fully guide our customers through the buying process, helping them with everything from selecting their ring to teaching them how to care for it. Additionally, we also offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee, free lifetime cleaning and maintenance on all of our products, and even include a complimentary insurance appraisal for all of our customers.

Know Your Jeweler’s History and Reputation

Another important thing to consider is a jeweler’s history and reputation. It’s crucial to buy from a reputable dealer who has experience in the business and a trusted reputation. If you buy from an unknown dealer, there are many variables that could end up being disastrous. You could end up with a poor quality ring or be unable to get help with any problems you may have with a bad ring, which is simply something you don’t want to risk with something as important as an engagement ring.

At Bridal Rings, our team of expert jewelers are experienced and responsive. We are a family owned company that has been in business for more than 35 years. Located in the world famous LA Jewelry District, we’ve been providing impeccably crafted jewelry and excellent service to our customers for decades. Additionally, Bridal Rings is also proud of our excellent reputation on Yelp, where we have a five star rating and hundreds of positive reviews.

Buy From Somewhere With a Great Selection

When shopping for an engagement ring, it’s also important to buy from somewhere with a great selection. There are many different kinds of engagement rings, so it’s important to buy from somewhere with good variety so you can find something that is not only high quality, but also suits your tastes. At Bridal Rings, we’re proud to carry a wide selection of engagement rings from excellent brands, which span an array of styles. We have rings from excellent companies such as Coronet, Gabriel & Co, Artcarved, and more. Additionally, since we also handcraft jewelry in house, we’re able to create custom rings for our customers.

Get the Best Price

Lastly, let’s talk about getting a great price for your engagement ring. When it comes to higher priced items like fine jewelry, it’s always a good idea to consider buying from a smaller, family owned jeweler. This is because jewelry from “big name” jewelers often comes with a major mark up. Instead of merely paying for the quality and craftsmanship of a ring, you’re also paying a huge mark up for the name brand of the ring.

Additionally, in Los Angeles there are some excellent options in the LA jewelry district where, instead of paying for a marked up ring, you can get a wholesale price. At Bridal Rings, we save our customers money by buying our materials wholesale. We directly import materials, saving our customers on middle men costs, to ensure that we can offer excellent prices that are 30% to 70% below retail.
