I almost bought a 2 carat solitaire from a Zales outlet last year. They are just last years style, or styles that don’t sell as well but nothing wrong. It’s a great place to look!

They seriously have almost the same jewelry in the outlets. But i have noticed that certain styles that are retired in the stores can still be found in the outlet for a while. I don’t live far from the Tanger outlets in Pittsburgh and have been in the kays outlet a few times. Hubby has a watch from there and got repairs done in an actual kay jewelers in our local mall so yes the warranty will carry over.

My sister in law has a ring from helzberg! They were so sweet and personable. 

Helzberg has better quality rings and diamonds IMHO. they didn’t look down on them because they are young.

This is from a Zales outlet. It was my promise ring. I regularly have a local mall store check and clean it to keep up with the warranty.

I bought my plain, 10k 2mm yellow gold wedding band from Mappins, which is part of Zales but for Canada.  I spent $99.00 and had 10% off.  None-chain jewelry stores in my area had VERY, VERY few plain bands and I’d have to order the same ring it for $249 at a couple, which is crazy for a 2mm plain gold ring.  I’m sometimes sample size (size 6) and I got to take it home on the spot.  It’s beautiful, polished nice and the lady was lovely.  I’m not sure I’d buy diamonds there, though.  They’re usually much lower on the colour scale, at least that’s what I’ve noticed.  My diamond earrings my aunt bought me from there are much, much darker than my ring.

My fiance got my engagement ring from the Zales outlet. It actually had the vera wang rings BEFORE the regular Zales store in his town had them. I went to the regular Zales store to look for wedding bands and they still did not have the vera wang ring yet I had to go to the outlet to look. The worked that I talked to there said that the prices and products are pretty much the exact same at the outlet and regular store. Here is my ring from the Zales Outlet:
