Buying gems at one time meant going to a jeweler. This meant buying the gem in addition to the necessary overhead of the store owner.
New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/02/2014 -- The Internet has changed this drastically. Now, interested customers can buy gems online at a significant discount.
“Buying direct means the gems come from the mines to the gemologist,” said Ross Sedawie of Sedagems.com, “so there are no other fees like shipping costs, handling and store overhead in the cost.”
This great price does have some significant drawbacks. The biggest drawback is not knowing exactly what the customer is looking at in a stone.
“All stones have clarity and color in addition to other factors. Certified gemologists can assess these stones and set prices accordingly, but many customers who are buying stones online do not understand the grading processes. This means they may order stones which are not as attractive as they thought,” said Sedawie.
Sedawie refers to unscrupulous online stores that promise gems and loose stones at exceptional prices, but the pictures and the stones do not match. Worst of all, many of the stores will not take returns or cease to exist when the customer finally sees their purchases.
