Some context is needed. Are these for headlines or for long paragraphs? Will they appear as logotypes or on products at all?

A great place to search for such a font is Google Fonts and if you have an Adobe CC account you can also search Typekit. You can filter the fonts by your requirements and narrow down your options.

Can you be more specific with the type of font you're looking for? Do you prefer serif or sans serif? Do you prefer a script font? Is this for the overall font of the website or is this for the store's logo?

When I think of elegance, I think of handwriting/script/caligraphy. This is round and elegant to me:

However, I would never recommend a script font for a web site, because many visitors cannot read it. Maybe for a logo, but that's about it.

Are you looking for sans or serif, that would be the starting point.

We are looking for a sans serif free google font that I can code into a vaping website.

Will be the main font - what people will read all the articles as.

I know how to do a search, I'm wondering if you have any personal favorites of elegant round fonts for websites.

Thanks.

Ideally, you want a font with several weights. Two popular ones are Open Sans and Montserrat. Quicksand and Rubik are other nice ones with the roundness that I think you're looking for. I mainly recommend Open Sans and Montserrat because they're popular and tried-and-true on websites, although ultimately it comes down to your personal preference.

An elegant (imo) Sans:

As for "rounded" -- if you're referring to the edges/ends of the fonts, I feel the elegance of Sans is the sharp, modern geometry. Rounded edges conflict with my thoughts on elegance of a Sans font. But maybe I'm misunderstanding your preference.

You're designing a vape website. I'm assuming this is a vape retailer? Their high ticket items are hardware/electronics. When I think of high-end hardware/electronics web-sites, I instantly gravitate to Apple's design influences:

I consider that to be very elegant Sans usage, combined with a beautifully vectorized product graphic. They set the bar for modern product marketing.

They use their own font, SF for reference:

I also like the Sans font that Google uses in the Android interface:

I do agree with Katrina that you should choose something with various weights. The Montserrat font is very nice.

Based on that criteria, Valera Round would be my recommendation. It's kind of hard to know whether or not a font will look good without context though. For example, what fonts will it be paired with?
