Ok, with that being said, let´s continue with the review on Peoples Jewelers!
What is People Jewelry about?
With nearly 150 locations spread all over Canada, we can calmly say that Peoples Jewelry is a well-known jewelry and diamond dealer. Founded in 1919, the family business, what stands out the most is that Peoples Jewellers became the first company to sell jewelry on a time payment plan. Today it still continues to offer it´s clients payment plans.
How does it work?
Their website is pretty self-explanatory, you can browse around for what you are looking for with the help of the menus (or tabs) at the top of the website and take it from there.
Then, if you find something you want you to place an order and wait for your delivered item to arrive.
The products and services
The products offered by Peoples are jewelry in different shapes and forms, plus that you can also (like with most jewelry dealers online) customize and design your own item as you like. Below is a screenshot of their products and services plus I will list them in a bullet point text below it:
- Wedding items
- Create your own
- Gift ideas
Can you get home delivery?
Yes you can get your items delivered to your front door, or you can also choose to get it delivered to your nearest Peoples store and pick it up there for free. Shipping is free to your door if your order is more than $1,000.
How good is their support?
Something I always put a lot of weight on when it comes to the support system of a company is if they got a live chat function or not, does Peoples Jewelry have this? The answer is, well yes they had the function but it said that it was not available for the moment. Have checked back a couple of times and it is the same.
They also do have the e-mail and phone support for you to ask any questions.
Is Peoples Jewelry a scam?
So, is Peoples Jewelry a scam? No, of course not, it has been around for almost a decade and it wouldn´t have survived that long if it was, right? However, if it is your best alternative out there is another story.
One thing you should NEVER forget is to look on what the real users who have already used their service, and purchased jewelry and diamonds have to say,
that leads us to:
Other online reviews and ratings
Something that is always wise to do when trying to figure out if a company you are interested in got any serious complaints on the most well-known and trusted review and rating sites online.
They are public for anyone to see but we always provide you with the numbers below plus with clickable links that will take you to the website where you can read all of them if you like:
Rating: (Not BBB accredited)
(2 / 5) (out of 9 reviews) click here to read them all (opens in new window)
Rating: (2.6 / 5) (out of 62 reviews) click here to read all of them (opens in new window)
Rating: (2.3 / 5) (out of 3 reviews) click here to read them all (opens in new window)
The conclusion from this:
Well, as you can clearly see they are not accredited by the BBB, and not much to be found at all I have to say after doing the research. And the few reviews and ratings I found was not impressive at all. So my advice to you would be to look at some other options, there are others that got a much more impressive rating from its clients.
The pros and cons
We always provide you with some clear positive and negative sides of the particular company we review in our reviews, and today is no exception.
Below you got some clear points on both sides of the spectrum:
- In business since 1919
- Wide selection of jewelry and offers payment plans
- Many complaints online (see links above)
- Does not sell loose diamonds
- Does not have international shipping
Are there better alternatives out there?
Well, I have to say that I would say so yes. I have reviewed at least 7 or 8 others that have looked way better, especially on the ratings and reviews from its real clients and investors. I have them all listed on this site, but the absolute best one I can recommend is Asteria Diamonds, they offer the whole package plus a bit more.

Final words and verdict
Overall rating: (2 / 5)
Ok, I think that sums up the overall picture of this company pretty good. It is a legit one, however, I have a hard time to close my eyes for the many complaints that we found in the few reviews. That is what mainly take the rating down to a weak 2 out of 5 stars. This rating might change to an either higher or lower one in the future as we make sure to update our reviews as soon as any news comes up!
As always, the choice is up to you how you spend your money and how careful and picky you invest, personally I want the best available every time, why not get a better experience, right?
You are a smart person, and I am sure that you will find a good dealer to do business with!
