When we were shopping for wedding rings, I would always say at the start “This is the first time we’ve looked at rings” or “We’ve only seen a few so far, so we’re still getting an idea of what we like.” That sets them up to realise you’re probably not going to buy your ring right now and it’s easy to just finish up saying “Thanks for all your help! We’ll keep having a look around to be sure, but we may come back.”

They’ll forgive you – no one’s going to be offended at you not buying a ring from them Smile

Yup we did the same when we shopped for bands – just told each place we walked in to that it was the first place we’d been and we weren’t quite ready to buy yet.   If they get pushy after you say that, then you know thats not a place you’d want to do business!

+1.

This is exactly what we did and we were never made to feel rude, or pressured into buying a ring we didn’t love.

I agree with the PP that say the stores won’t be pushy and upset at you for taking your time and being patient about such a large purchase…

I didn’t tell everyone it was our first time looking… I think that’s kinda strong. 

I was just honest saying that I wasn’t sure what I wanted and was SHOPPING… not necessarily buying!

They don’t love to see you leave but you can’t expect them to… I got lots of cards with different quotes and got back in contact with some and others not.

You never know unless you try but always remember YOU are spending your money, not them! Feel free to try whatever you want on, ask whatever questions you see fit and leave whenever you want.

I ask them to write down the model #’s that I liked for future, on the back of their business card, so you can be in touch with them later after looking around some more.
