Three Questions to Ask Yourself Before You Buy Jewelry
Looking to buy a piece of jewelry for a special occasion or a nice gift? Well, let us tell you something- you have many more options than Tiffany’s, Zales, and Shane Co. In fact, there are hundreds, if not thousands of jewelry stores throughout Arizona alone. But how can you tell if a store you’re considering is well established? How can you tell if you’ll be receiving the best quality jewelry at a fair and reasonable price? While there are many questions you should be asking yourself on the quest to find the perfect piece of jewelry, here are the most important:
What kind of reputation does the store have?
Before you walk into any jewelry store, it’s best to do some background research online. This means looking up the business on Google, Yelp, Facebook, The Better Business Bureau, or any other site that lets customers rate and submit reviews. Naturally, a good business will have a large number of highly rated, positive reviews. Reading the reviews carefully is extremely important. For one, they give you insight into the customers experience and satisfaction with their purchase and overall experience. After all, you’d be more willing to eat at a restaurant that has a plethora of fabulous reviews, right? The same goes for a jewelry business.
How can I tell if the gems and stones are genuine and high quality?
While this should always be on the forefront of your mind whenever you’re looking to buy jewelry, it’s a question that is easily taken for granted. You yourself might not be able to tell if a particular stone is genuine. After all, the average person isn’t an expert! But any credible jewelry business will be receiving its stones from high-quality, certified sellers. No matter what stone you’re thinking about buying, it must be graded and certified by a larger, professional organization. One of the most reputable sources for grading diamonds is the GIA (Gemological Institute of America). Stewart Kuper Jewelers offers a wide array of GIA graded diamonds, as we strive to provide our customers with the best of the best.
