It's a Wrap: Helpful Holiday Jewelry Shopping Tips

The right timing can make the most of your holiday deals.

The Most Rewarding Days to Shop Can be the Most Challenging

On Black Friday, be prepared:
  • Sign up for emails and newsletters at least a few weeks ahead of time
  • Research and pre-shop when the store is quieter, so you get in and out on sale day with minimal hassle
  • Always have a back-up plan in case you can't get the price or piece you wanted
  • Make sure you know the sale dates and times, and get there as soon as the doors open
On Cyber Monday, be security-and-savings-savvy:
  • Only shop on secure sites; look for https:// in the address bar.
  • Beware online stores and brands you're not familiar with
  • Read the fine print, see if free shipping is offered and what the return policy is
  • Do an online search to see if coupon codes are available, before finalizing your buy

More Ways to Get What You Want

Avoid the sales-day craze:
  • Plan in advance for the holidays — there are always special sales throughout the summer and fall
  • Sign up for emails and newsletters from your favorite jewelry retailers to stay informed about special deals
  • Remember, weekday shopping is quieter, perfect for talking with salespeople, looking around and even trying things on ahead of time
Take the time to personalize:
  • Initials, meaningful dates and messages are extra-thoughtful touches for gifts
  • You'll need at least 10 business days to order engraved jewelry, sometimes longer
  • Ask retailers if engraving time is longer around the holidays, and plan for that
