Memphis, TN--Robert Irwin Jewelers offers a new Try-On At Home program for customers who want to shop for engagement rings without setting foot in one of their locations. The premise is simple: customers are invited to 'Select up to 5 rings to try on for FREE for 7 days.' The program includes a $25 refundable security deposit.

A recent article by Toni Lepeska in the Daily Memphian reported on the program and how COVID-19 has changed how people shop. From the article:
She got engaged spontaneously in the middle of a pandemic, but no ring, no stores open to try one on, and no telling when a jeweler would be open for try-ons.
“He told me I could pick out the ring I wanted,” Amber Blair, 32, said of fiancé Andy Wong, both of Memphis. “I thought, ‘It’s going to be forever.’ There were no jewelry stores open to go to.”
She got online, but couldn’t predict what the ring she’d wear forever might look like on her finger. That’s when she spotted a novel try-at-home ring program.
