Summary: If you are looking for an engagement ring, you need to be sure that you find the right jeweller that will help you through the process.
When you are looking to purchase fine jewellery, you want to find a jeweller that is experienced and knows their craft inside and out. Here some common things that you should know to ensure that your jeweller is right for you.
Check for Accreditation
Be sure that your jeweller is properly established and accredited. There’s nothing worse than dealing a large amount of money with a fraudulent party. Be sure to do some major research on the company’s reputation and contact their references, which should be easy for them to release on account of their networking status.
Test their Knowledge
Ask your jeweller questions. Test their knowledge to see how well they know their craft. That’s not to say you should interrogate the poor salesperson but you want to be sure that they have sufficient knowledge on anything revolving jewellery. While some may be focused on a pure sales pitch, you want to find the ones that know everything from the personalities of art deco rings to the rarity of the gemstones.
Have them Guide You
A jeweller should be able to walk you through the entire process of purchasing your ring. You come to a jeweller for guidance and a purchase. Many times you will see jewellers explain the details and characteristics of a stone, or the market value for estate jewellery these days. You may even get some training on how to distinguish a diamond’s “4 Cs”.
An engagement ring is one of the most prized and intimate possessions a person can have. As much as you want a great ring, you’re also going to want to be able to explore the different options that stores have to offer. You and your jeweller should develop a rapport to where his or her knowledge is passed on to you. Trust is a key focus when it comes to finding the ring of your dreams.
