One of our favorite additions to Shane Co. in the past few months has been the creation of in-store and virtual appointments. They offer our customers the chance to get one-on-one time with an expert jewelry consultant, either in your local Shane Co. store or from the comfort of your home. But we realize that many of you may be wondering, “What exactly do I use my appointment for?” Here are a few ways to take advantage of this new way to shop with your friends in the jewelry business.
1. Deciding on an engagement ring
One of our favorite ways to use your Shane Co. appointment is to begin looking at engagement rings. Setting up an appointment with your significant other means you have the chance to show them what you’re interested in, discover new styles you might not have otherwise looked at, or try on favorites to see how they’ll actually look on you. Not only will you have the help of an expert jewelry consultant, but setting up an engagement ring appointment can be a great bonding experience for you and your partner! Did you know that, as of 2017, up to 33% of couples look for engagement rings together? It’s a great way to ensure you’ll get the ring you’ve been dreaming of.
2. Preparing for the big day
Maybe you’re already engaged and have begun planning your wedding. Using your appointment to look at wedding bands with your partner is the perfect way to spend a day together and prepare to tie the knot. You can try on wedding bands with your engagement ring in person or using our Virtual Try-On feature, so whether you want to shop in-store or online, we’re here to help. Get an expert’s advice on which band will match perfectly with your ring, or find out the pros and cons of different metals to ensure your wedding ring will fit your lifestyle.
3. Choosing the perfect gift
Have a birthday coming up? An anniversary? Not sure what to get your sweetheart? Don’t worry, we can help! Whether you want to see what kind of birthstone jewelry we have available, want a jewelry consultant’s opinion on the perfect gift for a 25th wedding anniversary, or want to create a personalized present they’ll treasure forever, setting up an appointment is a great way to get the attention and help you need to make the right decision.
4. Picking out wedding jewelry
Want to look your best for your wedding or another special occasion? Even if you’ve opted to tie the knot virtually or elope, it’s nice to have a special piece of jewelry to wear on your big day. Bring photos of your wedding dress, shoes, and other accessories when you come to your appointment and our jewelry consultants will help you pick out the perfect necklace, earrings, bracelets, and more to wear when you tie the knot. You can even kill two birds with one stone if you go with sapphires — something new and something blue!
5. Treating your bestie
Everyone has a best friend they’re missing right now. Whether she’s your maid of honor, has been killing it as a mom, or has simply added a little joy to your life during these tough times, setting up a Shane Co. appointment to look at jewelry together is a wonderful way to say thank you. You can try on on-trend styles together and even treat her to something special! Our jewelry consultants can even point you toward our meaningful charms and other personalized jewelry that will show her just how much you care.
