Last Thursday Nicole and I attended the Blue Nile Webroom Grand Opening in Bellevue Square! We had so much fun sipping rose and trying on diamonds of all shapes, sizes and variations! Haven't heard of Blue Nile? I was surprised to find out a few things about them as well.
Blue Nile is a Seattle based company where all the jewelry is actually made here in Seattle. This makes shipping and customer service quick and easy for those of us who are locals! They sell diamonds solely online, but just opened two Webroom's where anyone can come in, try on diamonds and then purchase them online once they've made a decision. We loved how each ring was uniquely different with amazing detail that goes into each and every piece.
What I liked about the Webroom was how casual it was. Trying on and buying diamonds can be extremely intimidating. Not to mention you can sometimes feel pressured to buy something as the sales clerk on the other end is taking time to show you things from inside the case. At the Webroom, you can try on rings without any help from a Blue Nile associate, with dozens of rings available to you right as you walk in. The majority of the diamonds are underneath the glass, but their service team was so accommodating and let us play with all kinds of gems like tennis bracelets, engagement rings, wedding bands, necklaces and even Men's jewelry.
Their pieces were very well priced and of the best quality. There truly is something for everyone so make sure to stop by their Webroom the next time you are at Bell Square! And, if you order online by Dec 22nd you are guaranteed delivery by Christmas!
