Blue Nile Complaints on Reddit

Reddit is a great place to get both sides of the story.

Here, you’ll find users that will voice their negative experience with Blue Nile diamonds.

In this post, user beabee131 mentions how they received a diamond engagement ring from Blue Nile with some errors in craftsmanship which resulted in them sending the ring back and received the same ring with new errors.

After a couple back-and-forth with Blue Nile, this Reddit user is now expected to pay 60% of the ring’s original value for the new changes.

Blue Nile Complaints on Google Reviews

In this section, we’ll take a look at a few one-star reviews from Blue Nile’s physical showroom in San Jose, California.

The Blue Nile customer service team doesn’t seem to respond to any reviews. It would be great to know their side of the story as well.

Customer service is usually tricky. Many shoppers don’t feel like they get the support they need when making a big purchase like a diamond engagement ring.

That’s why we strongly recommend shopping online.

Surprisingly enough, with modern technology, we find response times and knowledge of a customer service representative from a chatbot to actually be a lot more helpful.

This review is another reason why we highly recommend shopping online. It’s a lot easier to show up for virtual appointments as opposed to driving 20 miles and not being able to get an appointment.

It’s good to see the customer above had their complaint resolved the same day the complaint was posted.
