Finding the perfect engagement ring for a loved can be a difficult, exciting task. Once you’ve decided on the shape, size colour, style, and cost of the ring and diamond, you have to find the right place to buy it from. The big question is do you buy online or buy from your local jewellers?

When it comes to price, online is always cheaper then High Street. This is mainly due to the larger over heads most High Street jewellers will have. When you buy online you can get much more for your money, and with some sites you have the option to browse through thousands of diamonds, to find the exact one you want. A lot of staff in High Street stores will be on commission for every sale they make, which is also added on to the cost of the jewellery. If you search online, you will find a whole host of jewellers all competing to sell diamonds and engagement ring settings at the right price. It’s also clear to see what you are buying as, most online jewellers invest money into good, visual computer animations of the rings.
