E-Commerce started at 2000’s and in our life for long time. Today most of people buying their inquires over internet. You can find everything and buy directly over internet. But the problem is quality since you are not able to see products while shopping. Another issue is, sellers are so relaxed to sell fake products over net since you are not able to contact them face to face. So they can easily gives wrong information for fake products. Their calculations are only return rate. On the other hand if they offer you pay at door – cash on delivery etc… no returns!
In this article we will give you detailed information to detect fake jewels. By this way you can protect you that kind of fake sellers.
1- PAY AT DOOR – CASH ON DELIVERY
If a company offers you pay at door or cash on delivery options you can be sure of that you will not get real or valuable products. If you check high quality brands or gold sellers over internet you can not find any shop who offers pay at door for their valuable products. If a company offers pay at door it means product is very low quality and sellers just throw their products. So this products are probably fake and they don’t have any valuable cost for this kind of products. On the other hand you don’t have any chance to refund because you already paid amount to courier and if you want to refund you don’t have any payment method for refund. So if you are shopping with Pay at Door or Cash on Delivery ready to get fake items.
2- FREE ITEM OFFERS – PROMOTIONS
Real jewelry and gemstones counts as pieces, carats and grams. If a company offers you something like “buy 2 and get 1 free” etc… It means their products are not valuable, they are fake and sourced as bulk. Today non of real jewelry shop can offers this to you, you can find that kind of promotions at bijouteries shops. Gemstones has carats and carat has costs. Also materials are counts as grams and silver and gold has costs too. Nobody can offers you free silver or gold because of your 20-30 gr. (approximately weight of one ring is 10-15 grams) shopping. If a company offers that be sure of they are selling fake and Chinese products.
3- CARGO PACKAGE PICTURES AT SOCIAL MEDIA
If a seller posts videos or pictures about their operations, how many cargos they sent etc… they probably tries to get your trusts. Non of big companies needs this. If you will use PayPal, Amazon Pay, Credit Card or Debit Card payments it means this sellers has agreements with banks and it is a real company. Today most of scam shop advertisements like as “SHOP NOW – PAY AT DOOR – BUY 2 GET” and they always shows cargo boxes as their sells. It might be true and they might cheat lots of peoples, but be careful and stay at safe side. Did you see any big companies operations center?
4- IS PAYPAL ACCOUNT MATCH WITH COMPANY NAME?

They are just marketing products and never cares about quality of products. Also because of non knowledge about product they are not able to solve issues. This companies generally has lots of webshops and they only knows coding. They are sourcing items from china as dropshipping. Ol alternatively collects cheapest old products from market and tries to sell online. It will works if you are shopping for tshirts or keychains.

5- PRICES OF JEWELRY
It is one of the most important point if you are looking for genuine gemstones and real materials. Once you craft a ring by hand it is very easy to copy it with mould. Because of that big brands never shows their products before launching. Over Internet, if you see same product at different places with different prices it clearly means that, seller uses original item picture however they are selling fake products. For jewelry original and high quality stones directly effect prices. Also real materials effect prices aswell. Rings can make with 925 sterling silver directly or with silver plated metals. Both looks same but it will effect prices directly. Craft is another portion of price. Handmade and factory made products prices are different. If you are getting factory made products probably made in China and not unique pieces. However if you want handmade jewelry it needs great experience and time to prepare. Also machines can work with recycled thin materials however handmade products needs solid silver ingot. Rings will be thick and strong.
6- CONCEPT OF ONLINE SHOP
Did you see any physical jewellery shop who sells another products aswell? It is same for online. If a website selling lots of different products it means that they are not jeweler, they are dropshipping marketers. Jewelry must be unique and high end. It also needs high education and well known. It needs experience. If you are looking for real and valuable jewelry you should buy it from jewelry shop, online or offline. Not from marketplaces like etsy, ebay, amazon or not from web shops who sells lots of different items.
Today unfortunately everybody tries to sell something over internet. You may hear from your community aswell about their projects to sell online over instagram or internet. It can works for some products however it will not work for some products which needs experience. Gemstones generally uses for spiritual energy or benefits. If you will buy something fake it will not work and you will just waste your money. If you are looking for bijouteries, Aliexpress will be good source for you with best prices. Don’t waste your money for marketplaces at Etsy, Amazon or Ebay. Because this sellers at that kind of marketplaces generally buying items from Aliexpress and reselling at there.
