Buying diamonds online offers many advantages. Most online retailers are able to offer better prices than jewelers with a brick and mortar shop because they can eliminate intermediaries. When buying online, things such as the shops fitting are not calculated into the price because online retailers don’t make these expenses. Therefore, prices can be significantly lower. Moreover, most online retailers provide services like free shipping and a money-back guarantee when you are not satisfied. The key to successfully buying diamonds online is to know what to look for and what to avoid. The better you are informed, the easier it is to find the perfect diamond for you.

Decide upon your budget

The first step, always, is to determine the amount you wish to invest, based upon your financial situation. Don’t let yourself be tempted by obnoxious discounts online to increase your initial budget. Take your time to calmly look about and weigh your decisions.

Money-back guarantee

de termijn waarbinnen je de diamant eventueel kan terugsturen. Deze termijn zou minimum 30 dagen moeten bedragen en idealiter neemt de aanbieder zowel de verzending als de retourkosten voor zijn rekening.

Choose a retailer with a money-back guarantee in case of dissatisfaction. Pay careful attention to the period of time in which you can potentially return you purchase. This period should amount to at least 30 days and ideally, the retailer should cover both the shipping fee and the return fee.

Pictures and information online

When buying diamonds online, picture materials and descriptions are crucial. This important information forms the basis for your comparisons and choices. Respectable online retailers spend the necessary care in providing quality pictures and detailed descriptions of the diamonds. Also make sure to weigh the different retailers based on objective information. Check the quality, options and prices for the same kind of diamonds.


GIA, HRD and IGI certificates provide a 100% certainty and impartiality. Such certificates contain information about, for example, the diamond’s weight in carat, its color and its cut. When buying diamonds online, these certificates contribute an invaluable and indisputable source of information that allow for objective comparison.
