Guest Post: How to Choose Your Jeweler

A piece of jewelry is considered a treasure for quite a number of reasons. Take for example, diamond engagement rings. Even a photograph of it on the magazine is already a sight to behold, with all its gleaming facets ready to jump out of the pages, but it is quite another story once you find yourself in the presence of a real one. It is a dancing fire with sparks playing in its midst, served on a golden or platinum band. It is eternity sitting on your finger, a fitting symbol of your love. You, your sons and daughters, their children and those who come after them will have the chance to own it because a diamond never ages, never fades and forever remains a thing of beauty.
Fortunately, you no longer have to brave jungles and seas to acquire this prize. You do, however, need a trustworthy expect to aid you in your search. After all, you’d surely want your acquisition to accurately reflect the money and effort you invested in it.
Even if you know a thing or two about jewelry and diamond, a jeweler is still indispensable in the hunt for loose diamonds, engagement rings or wedding rings. A jeweler has to be an expert in his field. Everyone wants to work with the best. He also needs to be trustworthy, someone you can discuss money and personal matters with in confidence. How will you be able to determine these qualities?


There are a lot of jewelers in the country and some do offer very tempting prices. It is easy to get lured into thinking that you’ll be getting away with a steal if you opt for the lower price, but did you know that the price of your jewelry does not depend on the size of the stone alone?
Wouldn’t it be great if you had all the information you needed so you could make an informed decision? A jeweler who keeps you in the know shows not only expertise in his craft but also his willingness to help you arrive at the best possible purchase. Check if your jeweler has extensive resources about wholesale diamonds, jewelry metals, gems, pearls and related topics on their website.
One good way to confirm the reputation of a certain jeweler is by checking if they are an accredited member of Jewelers of America and the Better Business Bureau. Another good yardstick would be the number of years the jeweler has been in business and how many satisfied clients they’ve had. A jeweler who earnestly looks out for the interests of his client will always give the best price. There are two ways to get the lowest price on your purchase: you can either make an effort to canvass among a number of jewelers, or you can get someone who guarantees to beat the price of anyone offering an item of the same size and quality.
Possibly the best testament to the reputation of your jeweler would be their adherence to a strict zero-tolerance policy against conflict diamonds. Conflict diamonds originate from the western and central regions of Africa and are sold to fund wars within the continent. Although the Kimberly Process and Patriot Act largely decreased the flow of conflict diamonds, some illegal stones still find their way into the marketplace.
Lastly, wouldn’t you want to get additional perks along with your purchase? You’d want to get a jeweler who can deliver top-notch quality service even after you’ve paid, just to show that they appreciate the fact that you brought your business to them. If your chosen jeweler has the following in addition to everything else mentioned, then you definitely have a green light. · Free complementary shipping – Your order is securely packaged, fully-insured and shipped by the most reputable couriers.· 30 Day Money Back Guarantee – Get a full refund, no questions asked, if you’re not happy with your purchase. · Lifetime warranty with Free Gemological Appraisal – Receive a detailed gemological appraisal by top gemologists from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) along with your lifetime warranty.Are you planning to get the perfect engagement ring for your future spouse?
