How To Buy Diamond Jewelry, What to Know, Where To Find It and More
Welcome back to the Stewart Kuper Jewelers blog.
Diamond jewelry has long been the gold standard when it comes to accessorizing. A year ago we discussed three questions to ask yourself before purchasing jewelry, which we will reference in this article. Here is what you need to know when it comes to buying diamond jewelry for your sweetie, family member or yourself.
How to Buy Diamond Jewelry
‘How to buy diamond jewelry’ may sound a bit obvious, but there are things to know when buying diamonds. You want to have an idea on how to evaluate a diamonds’ qualities. A quick rundown of this can be found here on our website. The most important thing to do is to go into a store and hear what the professionals have to say. They should be filled with knowledge and experience to help you understand your purchases. See the sparkle, see the color and clarity of the diamonds in person.
While we write an awful lot here on this blog, and the internet is chock full of information, neither stacks up to a trained, educated veteran in the industry. Take a look at our interview with Bobby late last year. The man knows the ins and outs of watches (literally) and to not use his advice when it comes to shopping for a time piece would be foolish. The same idea of sitting down with a professional jeweler holds true for diamond buying.
Where to Buy Diamond Jewelry
When picking out a place to make the purchase, consider some things: What kind of reputation does the store have and what kinds of services do they offer?
Before you go into a jewelry store, do the research you can do. Look into reviews on Facebook, Google, and Yelp to see what kind of experience others have had. You’re looking for helpful, knowledgeable experts and if the reviews point to a situation where you are going to receive subpar service, look elsewhere.
Aside from the reputation, you will also want to look at the services they provide. Some jewelry stores surprising as it may be, only sell jewelry. They don’t make custom jewelry or do repairs. If looking for a watch you would want the jeweler to offer watch repair. When buying jewelry, the relationship you will have with your jeweler will span for years.
When it comes to how to buy diamond jewelry the truth is that you are looking for more than just the jewelry. You are looking for the best business to support you in your purchase. At Stewart Kuper Jewelers, we pride ourselves on being that business.
