Dedicated Post: Build your own diamond ring with Abazias Ring Builder
There are those who buy engagement rings in a fit of romantic delirium, and others who have to do hours upon hours of research and shop around for months before making a purchase. Somewhere in between are those of us who want to be knowledgeable about diamonds before buying, but don't have the time to devote to learning everything there is to know in the old-fashioned way.
The Abazias website has several nice features that help busy people select and buy diamond rings. The Diamond Eduation Guide takes you through the basics of the 4 Cs (carat, color, cut and clarity) as well as more thorough explanations of each of these features, buying tips, and details about the diamond market (including information about "conflict diamonds"). Visitors to the site can also ask specific questions that will be answered by a company rep.
Once you're comfortable with the options, you can use the Ring Builder function, through which you select the setting style and material, diamond shape and quality, and diamond size. You can view your ring in 3-D before you buy, a really handy feature that brings the ring more to life. After you select all the features you want, the diamonds that match your selections are brought up on a list for you to choose from. You can play around on the Ring Builder as long as you want, choosing different combinations of features that bring you within your price range. Ultimately, you decide which features you can compromise on and which you can't.
And if you need a little more help, the Abazias personal shopper will take you through the process of making selections from either their bridal jewelry category or fine jewelry category. Cick the live chat option any time to get a real person online to answer questions.
