While looking for my wedding ring (an eternity band) I am seeing many sites like Blue Nile etc.. becoming more popular to buy a ring at. Has anyone ever tried this? or do you know of anyone who bought their ring online? How was your experience? Were you happy with it? Would you recommend any place over another? Some are coming up in my searches quite a bit…Juno Jewelry, Facets, New York Diamond Traders etc.. Any info on any of them?

I bought a ring from bluenile- but ultimately ended up returning it because it did not go well with my e-ring. Other than that- the quality of the ring was very nice- it was a solid gold band, arrived quickly and packaged securely. Customer Service was friendly and knowledgeable. Finally the return process was very easy and the refund was put back on my card promptly.

I bought my wedding ring at e-weddingbands.com. I got a plain pipe cut 2mm white gold ring, so no experiences with their diamonds or anything, but they did an excellent job, and their prices were great

My fiance bought my e-ring on Whiteflash and I plan to buy the matching band from there also, which will also be an eternity band. Amazing experience! Seamless from beginning to end, great prices, no shadiness at all. Tracy, who was my contact there was more like my friend than a sales person. I was also initially very skeptical but after much research on pricescope and "verifying" my e-ring through a jewelry appraiser and a jewelry store I am convinced that it is the best way to buy a ring. And most sites understand this skepticism so they have a great return policy. My cousin bought his fiancee’s ring from bluenile and had an equally fantastic experience.

Both my e-ring and my wedding band came from BlueNile. I was really pleased with how they turned out. I got the e-ring appraised locally and was delighted to know it was appraised higher than the appraisal that BlueNile had done. I would by from them again and I definitely recommend them.

I just bought my wedding ring from bluenile, amazing customer service! Have you heard about a big company like this pick up your phone call after 2 rings?! That’s what happened to me when I called them on a Sunday (not busy). I have yet to hear a non-positive feedback for them!
Unfortunately I haven’t seen my band yet, it’s shipped to my FIL’s out of state to save tax 😛 I can’t wait to see my new ring this weekend!

FI bought my e-ring at Uniondiamond.com and I plan on getting the matching band from there. We had an awesome experience and absolutely recommend it to anyone. My e-ring was appraised for $3K more than FI paid for it.

My engagement ring and wedding band both came from Blue Nile. My engagement ring was a size too big so it had to returned to be resized. I had no issues with that. When shopping for a platinum wedding band, I found it was cheaper to shop at Blue Nile rather than going to a local jewelry store like Kay’s. I would highly recommend Blue Nile because I think they have high quality jewelry and their prices are very reasonable.

We got both my engagement ring and my wedding ring from Blue Nile. THRILLED with the service, quality, prices, everything!! No complaints, whatsoever. We were nervous about making such a huge purchase on something we hadn’t seen, but we just couldn’t justify the huge difference in price compared to local jewelry stores. Free overnight shipping, we paid the extra 25 bucks to get it delivered on Saturday, so we could be here when it came. And it was all we hoped for and more. I get compliments from complete strangers all the time on my ring. We have recommended Blue Nile to several people and will continue to do so. Nothing to worry about with BN!

My e-ring came from Amazon.com. Initially it was a giant snafu because my fiance tried to pay by check (which never processed, very unhappy with that—the giant online company was not too great with the physical paperwork). But then he was able to pay by credit card as he had wanted to in the first place and everything went through without a hitch, very quickly. Even after that initial bad experience he stuck with them because their prices were so much better than other retailers’, both brick and mortor and online. My ring is gorgeous and cost several thousand dollars less than its appraisal and several thousand less than a comparable stone and setting at bluenile. Despite our initial bad experience we will probably buy our wedding bands from amazon.com too because the price is so good.

Girls, Thank you for all the great feedback! This helps me so much in making a decision! Plus some of you mentioned places I have never heard of that I’d like to check out or places I had not thought of. I’m almost positive I’m going to take your advice and buy online as well.

My fiance ordered my engagement ring from BlueNile and I love it!! He was able to order it online and then call them to finalize smaller details such as the clarity, colour and cut of the diamond he had chosen for the solitaire. We ordered the matching band and it is currently at my future mother-in-law’s house.
They’ve been great to us and they ship in huge boxes without their label on the package so that people cannot tell it’s a ring!!! I was concerned about it getting lost in the mail 🙂

my e-ring came form Joys Jeweler online! great experience! my FI said that the customer service was great and he was shocked at how quickly my ring arrived. and how great the cost was!!!
I LOVE my e-ring!!!
We plan to do our wedding rings online as well.
regarding any future maintenance, we believe we should be able to get any cleanings, ect done at a reputable private owned jewelry store…….

Like many others, my DH purchased my e-ring and my wedding ring as a set from Blue Nile. He was really happy with the experience. He was originally thinking he would buy me my e-ring at the gold markets in Dubai, UAE since he was over seas with the Navy at the time. Then he started thinking about what would happen if he had a problem with it. "Excuse me Mr. Random Gold Market Dealing, I had this ring appraised and it appears you’ve sold be a gigantic load of crap!" Um, yeah. That would be a problem! So, he decided that Blue Nile was the way to go and he’s been really happy with that decision.
I purchased his wedding ring from http://www.applesofgold.com and was VERY happy with the experience. The ordering process was smooth, the product ship very quickly, the quality was excelent, the engraving was exactly to specifications, and the customer service was wonderful. I highly recommend them for unique men’s wedding bands, especially if you’re looking for Celtic knotwork!
