Whether you're looking for a gift for a loved one or want to treat yourself, a custom photo necklace is a great option. But with so many photo necklace options out there these days, how do you know you're getting a quality product? Here are a few tips on how to find a quality photo necklaces from a legitimate store:

1.Ask around. Word-of-mouth, especially from someone you know, is probably the best way to ensure your are getting what you’re looking for in a photo necklace. Were they happy with the quality? Would they recommend it? How was the customer support? Getting first-hand information from someone you trust is incredibly helpful when making a purchase decision.

2. Check store reviews--not just product reviews. One of the best ways to gauge whether or not a product is high-quality is to check verifiable reviews. But be wary, as fake reviews are out there. If a site only shows a 100% positive reviews, that could be a red flag. It’s important to not only read the onsite product reviews but that you are looking into but the business itself. You can check sites like www.trustilot.com, or www.bbb.org to see if a business has a lot of complaints or good customer service reviews.

3. Carefully read product descriptions. When product descriptions are not clear about size, weight and materials used in the photo necklace, that could be a sign that you are dealing with a questionable seller. Some sellers offer products they never come in touch in what is called drop-shipping where they are merely marketing a product shipped from a third-party seller or manufacturer without quality checking the product themselves before it is shipped to you. Often, you get what you pay for, but in some cases, you might not be getting what you are paying for at all.

4. View warranty and return policies. While many retailers do not offer refunds on personalized or customized photo necklaces, they should offer exchanges or replacements for defective or damaged goods. A business should really stand behind the quality of the products they sell. Many stores drop-ship from overseas where often quality and delivery are not guaranteed. One sure-tell sign your product is coming from overseas is if it takes a few weeks before the photo necklace is even shipped.
