Diwali shopping: Beat the crowd
Ready to begin your Diwali shopping? With just three more weeks to go, you can start right away and get your hands on some lovely diamonds. Diamond shopping is now as popular as gold shopping and many of us love flaunting our precious rocks. But here’s the thing – it takes time to choose and buy good diamond jewellery.
Additionally, the festive season also means that diamond prices will be at an all-time high. You will probably wonder if the jeweller will be able to inform you of the right prices. And what if you don’t get the diamond jewellery design you really want?
And that’s not all. You’re not the only one going out shopping, so be prepared for crowded spaces. And no kind of festival shopping is complete in one single trip. You will have to see a few jewellers more than once to get your hands on the perfect diamond jewellery. There will be loads of people on the streets, inside the stores and yes, there’s traffic too! These are some things we think we can never avoid while shopping during the festive season.
But have you thought of an alternate situation during your Diwali shopping?
If you haven’t, let us help you out. The Divine Solitaires digital platform is a great way to tackle these problems. You can start by looking up the price of your diamond on Know The Value. All you have to do is customise the cut, clarity, colour and size of your stone and find out its price. The prices on the digital platform are the same as the ones in the Divine Solitaires Price List. That way, you have access to standard and transparent pricing, even at home.
When you walk into the jewellery store, you will obviously love it if the staff gives you undivided attention. But that’s not likely to happen when there are tons of other people thronging the stores every minute. Have you tried booking an appointment with your jeweller? The Divine Solitaires mobile application lets you choose a store near you so that you can plan your trip accordingly. You can also schedule an appointment as per your convenience so that you can choose your solitaire jewellery designs at leisure.
In case you can’t make up your mind in a single visit, you can reschedule or book multiple appointments. Planning ahead also helps you check the traffic situation so that you don’t waste your precious holiday.
An ideal gift of solitaires this festival
Exchanging gifts is the best part of any festival and Diwali is no exception. The whole of October has a celebratory touch to it with Navratri, Dhanteras and Diwali. During this time, especially on Dhanteras, the tradition of giving jewellery as gifts is common. Though people usually exchange silver or gold during this time, diamonds are not far behind.
It won’t be a bad idea to gift your loved ones a solitaire. Diamond pendants, diamond earrings and diamond bracelets make for some great gifting options. Younger women, especially, are less interested in gold jewellery that they can’t always wear. And what can be better than a dazzling diamond to celebrate the festival of lights?
