This post is about Jewelry ONLINE Shopping, but I can’t even begin without acknowledging that I love the experience of shopping in a Fine Jewelry Store! Only in a store can you try-on and feel the jewels touch our skin while shopping. Part of the alluring experience is also hearing interesting facts or stories about the jewelry from someone knowledgeable or “in the know”. Whether I speak to the curator who carefully chose the items or I listen to a jewelry professional who knows how to tell a story that is worthy of fine jewels….visiting fine jewelers is just fun! I have to admit, however, that I also love Jewelry Online Shopping! I enjoy shopping from my bedroom, at a spa (while I am impatiently waiting for my masseuse), while I am preparing dinner (and waiting for something to finish cooking) or relaxing next to my pool…even on my mobile while I am waiting in some unbearable line for something! I know, I know…I am not a patient person and I am not capable of idle “waiting time” for anything! Maybe I should learn to meditate?
Jewelry Online ….the Allure
I have to admit, however, that I also love Jewelry Online Shopping, because…..I like shopping from my bedroom.

Notable Online Shopping Spots
More and more people are feeling increasingly comfortable doing the same thing….jewelry online shopping. Men and women in every socio-economic group, even the most affluent consumers, are buying jewelry from online retailers. The online destinations range fromthe websites of the most prestigious international brands like www.Chopard.com to niche designers like www.Zhulia.com (Fashion-Forward PEARL Jewelry). There’s a new hot spot, too … www.JewelryForever.com , which is a great place for treasure hunters; give it a try! Of course, the most active jewelry online shoppers always want to click over to the exclusive brick-and-mortar stores like Tiffany & Co. and Neiman Marcus ….And, no one can ignore the sparkle of that omni-channel or boundary-less retailer www.HSN.com ! Here is a link so you can check out their “Colors of Diamonds” http://bit.ly/Z79M7e Even some of the most prestigious independent jewelers (where I like to visit and jewel-chat) offer e-commerce on their websites…here are a few of my favorites:
Of course, shoppers only want to purchase big ticket items from trusted retailers with high levels of service, secure payment and delivery methods (like all of my favorites) where returns are always an online option ….with the rare exception of custom designed jewelry pieces. BTW if you love Custom Designs, the 2014 JCK LUXURY RETAILER OF THE YEAR, Schmitt Jewelers in Phoenix, AZ offers ONLINE TRACKING of your custom piece through the entire development; their store motto is “The ultimate luxury is custom jewelry”
