Does your partner like traditional gems and designs or is he/she inclined to novel, eccentric or unconventional styles?
Look at what your partner wears and what's in their jewellery box. If your special someone often chooses simple designs, avoid buying bold or vibrant pieces. If your partner is an active individual, don't buy jewellery with high settings, as the stones can fall off easily when they are accidentally hit against a hard surface. This is also true when buying a watch, as dainty or fragile pieces will not be able to withstand long-wearing or active use.
Check out some online guides and sites to help understand terms like diamond clarity and cut, grading of gemstones, difference between precious and semi-precious stones. Also check for reputable jewellery stores to ensure that your pieces are from reliable sources. If you are lucky, you might encounter an ongoing sale to better manage or even increase your budget. Note that you may find the best pieces for your budget, but don’t be dazzled by discounts.
Choose a jeweller who has both formal gemological education and/or jewellery manufacturing training in addition to practical experience.
Look for the maker’s mark on the piece of jewellery. A maker’s mark is a stamp of authenticity – proof that a particular manufacturer made it. It’s like a painting being signed by the artist.
Be careful of jewellery stores that always offer discounts of more than 50 percent. Buyers may find the discount price is actually the average retail price elsewhere. Only buy from a trusted retailer. Ask your friends and relatives for recommendations.
When buying jewellery with a diamond, you should insist that your purchase comes with a Gemological Institute of America (GIA) certificate. The GIA certification is an independent and reliable grading report which documents the specific characteristics of all diamonds.
