An engagement ring is not just a piece of jewelry; it's a symbol of commitment, love, and a lifelong promise. While there are countless options for engagement rings, many couples are drawn to the beauty and affordability of moissanite engagement rings. But when it comes to buying a moissanite engagement ring, there are two primary options: going to a store or working with a private jeweler who makes items custom made to order.
Going to a Store to Buy a Moissanite Engagement Ring
For many people, the idea of going to a store to buy an engagement ring is the traditional way to do it. Walking into a store, you can see and touch the rings in person, talk to a salesperson, and even try on the rings to see how they look on your hand. If you are just starting to consider getting engaged and are unsure about the style you would like, it’s a good first step in identifying your personal preferences.
However, there are some drawbacks to buying a moissanite engagement ring from a store. For one, the cost is often much higher due to the overhead costs of running a physical store. Additionally, you may feel pressured by sales associates to make a purchase or get up-sold into a more expensive ring.
Working with a Private Jeweler
On the other hand, working with a private jeweler offers some distinct advantages. But, what is a private jeweler? A private jeweler is a professional who specializes in creating, designing, or selling custom jewelry for clients on a one-on-one basis. Unlike a traditional jewelry store, a private jeweler typically operates independently or as part of a small team and offers personalized services tailored to the needs of individual clients. Forever Ring offers in-person consultations at its office in Toronto that focus on moissanite stones and clarifying design ideas so that you can get a firm quote.
Here are some of the benefits of working with a private jeweler such as Forever Ring for your engagement ring needs.Personalized Service and Attention
When working with a private jeweler, you can expect personalized service and attention. With no retail store to manage, a private jeweler can devote all of their time and energy to working with you to create the perfect engagement ring. They will take the time to get to know you, your preferences, and your budget, and will work with you to create a ring that meets all of your needs. At Forever Ring, we offer in-person consultations at our office, virtual consultations, and phone consultations at your convenience.

One of the biggest benefits of working with a private jeweler is the customization options. With a traditional retail store, your options are often limited to what is on display in the store. However, with a private jeweler, you can create a fully custom engagement ring that is tailored to your unique tastes and preferences.
When creating a custom engagement ring with a private jeweler, you can choose the stone you want, the type of metal, the setting, and the design. You can also choose from a wide variety of moissanite options, from classic round cuts to unique shapes and colors. With a custom engagement ring, you can be sure that your ring is one-of-a-kind and perfectly reflects your personal style.Quality and Value
Another benefit of working with a private jeweler is the quality and value of the engagement ring. Private jewelers typically have access to higher quality and recycled metals, as well as a greater variety of options, than traditional retail stores. This means that you can get a higher quality engagement ring for the same price or even less than what you would pay at a traditional retail store.Peace of Mind
Finally, working with a private jeweler can provide peace of mind. With a traditional retail store, you may feel pressured to make a purchase quickly, as you may not know when the item will be sold or when it will be restocked. However, with a private jeweler, you can take your time and make an informed decision about your engagement ring.
If you are shopping online or creating a custom moissanite ring, don’t forget to plan ahead. It generally takes 4-6 weeks for a ring to be made although it may take up to 8 weeks during busier times of the year.Shopping Online with Forever Ring
Forever Ring has an online catalog of available styles that you can filter search results to find the perfect engagement ring for your budget and preferences. While you may find exactly what you are looking for, it’s common for potential customers to reach out regarding a style to ask questions or request a customization. Don’t be shy, get in touch today.
