Does anyone have any advice on buying from helzberg jewelers. I found a ring that I really like and wouldn't mind opinions on whether or not it is a good deal. If anyone has bought from them before I would really appreciate your feedback on your buying experience with them. Also does anyone know if you can actually negotiate with them since they are such a big retail chain???

 

Here is the one I'm looking at if you want to see it.

Its Item # 1624665 from the helzberg.com website.

To be honest, I generally avoid dealing with larger retail chains, especially for high-end purchases for a couple of reasons:

 

First, what quality diamonds are in that ring? If you're going to be spending $3k for a ring, I'd expect to have a VERY good idea of what you're going to be getting -- for that kind of money I'd want a certified stone.

 

Also, I find that in larger chains, the salespeople aren't nearly as knowledgeable as you'll find in a smaller store, or some of the better e-tailers. I, for example, have a local jewelry store where I have made several purchases. The owner knows me by sight, and he is very knowledgeable about what he is selling. A couple of times I've gone in there and haven't found exactly what I wanted on display, so he reached under the display counter and pulled out several other trays of merchandise, and I found exactly what I wanted that way.

 

The other thing that I have noticed at the larger retail stores... they always seem to be offering 30% or 50% or whatever off sales, whether at Christmas, or Valentine's day, or some other holiday. If they're able to offer 50% off of their merchandise and still make money (trust me, they're NOT losing money during these sales), then that tells me their merchandise is 50% overpriced during the course of the year.
