Additionally, Zales also has a credit program available to consumers that allows one to make affordable monthly payments based on their personal credit rating. This program is available to customers seeking fine jewelry who may not have the cash up front.

Zales first set up shop in 1924 and introduced this program after 20 years of being in business. Taking into account the company’s long life span, consumers can also be assured they are purchasing products from a reputable company that isn’t “fly by night,” and will be available to assist them in the future should they encounter any problems with the product.
