Buy from reliable internet seller VS. your jeweler
If you are not 100%
certain about the purchase you are about to make over the internet and would
prefer to have your own jeweler appraise our product prior to paying in full,
then we suggest you go to your jeweler before you buy.
There are numerous reasons for us to give such a response and we would like you
to take them all into great consideration.
1. Our price difference is huge and our
products are offered for half, if not a third of the prices offered by your
local jewelry retailer.We are able to
offer incredibly low prices because we incur much less expenses due to the fact
that we are diamond cutters, jewelry manufacturers and a distribution company. Ultimately, we are the source of your product
and are therefore able to cut out the middle man and give our customers the
lowest possible prices. With these
extremely low prices and price margins we are also unable to offer layaways,
however, we offer a full refund policy that we are happy to adhere to.
2.Unlike your local jewelry store, we
have a much larger and greater variety of goods and actually acquire new items
daily. In contrast, the Jewelry Industry
in general is suffering credit problems and therefore retail stores lack the
funds to buy new goods and the manufacturers are unable to extend them new
credit. As a result, retailers are
unable to purchase new goods, are making fewer sales and are forced to increase
their prices to make up for lost profit.Selling via the internet allows us to offer an extensive amount of goods
without having to invest the same amount of money as retailers.
3.As you can see, Gem Stone King is
selling sizeable quantities every day which allows us to continue to work with
very low mark-ups. We have received more
than 40,000 positive feedback comments from individual buyers which translates
into more than 80,000 completed transactions with very happy and satisfied
buyers. We suggest you ask your local
jeweler how many positive feedback comments they can mention to you.
4.We are the fourth generation of
manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors in the business with over 100 years
of selling experience on an international level.Not only is Gem Stone King located in the US
but we are also in Belgium, Israel, Bangkok, China, and India.
5.Considering all the facts mentioned
above, internet jewelry retailers are an additional threat to the already
strained financial situation of jewelers and therefore they will do whatever
they can to convince you not to purchase over the internet.Some examples that we have heard directly are
that jewelers will appraise the goods at very low costs, discuss the product
quality on a biased level, etc.
6.Gem Stone King suggests that prior to
purchasing a piece of jewelry online, you should first go to your local jeweler
and ask them if they can offer you the same or better price than we can.If his price is close to ours, even 30% more,
than we encourage you to buy from him.Ultimately
you, the consumer, should base your decision simply upon who you rely on more.
Having said all this, Gem Stone King cannot conduct our business according to
what a local jeweler is appraising.
