Are you thinking of buying your next jewellery piece from Amazon? Amazon can be a useful place to shop online for things you may need cheaply and/or quickly. But is amazon a good place to buy jewellery – should you buy your jewellery from Amazon and what are the risks of doing so?
Is Amazon a good place to buy jewellery?
We will be the first to admit, that Amazon can be an excellent place to go to for items you may need – be it paper, ink or your next book – Amazon is convenient, quick and sometimes cheap. But there is also very good reason why you should avoid buying certain items from Amazon. Here we list 5 key reasons you should think carefully before buying any jewellery pieces from Amazon: –
- QUALITY: because Amazon opens up its marketplace to many third party sellers, this brings about added risks. Certainly when it comes to jewellery, there have been lots of instances where customers have reportedly received exceptionally poor quality jewellery pieces when they have purchased from amazon.
- LACK OF UNIQUENESS: by its very nature, Amazon is a beast which operates at scale and to the masses. This very focus on mass market sales means that any jewellery pieces you purchase from there has very likely been bought by thousands of others before you – think about it, next time you head out on a night out with your friends, do you really want every Tom Dick and Harry wearing the same necklace or bracelet as you? If you want to be hip and unique and at the same time keep some fashion credibility, looking elsewhere at independent jewellers such as Alfred & Co. London is the much more advisable route to consider when making your next jewellery purchase.
3. SUPPORTING SMALLER BUSINESSES: let’s face it, everybody knows that Amazon is a humongous behemoth of an online shopping market – already worth billions of $ do you really want to be giving Jeff Bezos even more of your hard earned cash? Or would you prefer to support smaller businesses who in turn spend that money locally and support other local businesses? Not to mention all of the numerous news reports of amazon avoiding their tax liabilities. For the vast majority of us, we are no longer content with spending our hard earned cash with huge corporations such as Amazon who take money away from local communities.
