What to Look for in a Jewelry Store

Whether you are looking for a piece of jewelry or a luxury timepiece for a special occasion, as a gift for a loved one, or simply seeking to add to your collection, finding a jeweler you can trust is essential. You want to be sure that the products you purchase are of the best possible quality for your money and that your jeweler has adequate knowledge of the products themselves to help you make an informed decision. Our team at The Wedding Ring Shop has put together a guide to finding a jewelry store that will be a good fit. 

A Positive Reputation

One of the best ways to predict what your experience with a jeweler might be is by consulting those who have interacted with this jeweler already. Find jewelry reviews online or by word of mouth to ascertain the types of experiences customers have had in the past. While you certainly cannot take the opinions of others as fact, an overwhelmingly negative or positive public opinion of a jewelry store will at least give you some idea of the quality of service a company offers. 

Certified Products and Personnel 

There are a number of gemological institutions that offer certifications of both jewelry products and jewelers that can offer an idea of the quality of jewelry and services one can expect to receive. The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and the American Gem Society (AGS) are among the standard organizations. Browse a jeweler’s website or call in to inquire about their certifications. This process will undoubtedly provide insight into which of your local jewelry stores you can entrust with your money and time. 

Ethical Practices

It is essential to find a jewelry store that shares your values. Inquire into a jeweler’s commitment to ethical business practices such as sustainable sourcing of materials, eco-consciousness, adherence to fair labor laws, etc. The search ensures that you are receiving ethically-produced jewelry. It can also give you an idea of how the jeweler and their employees might treat you. 

Safety Assurance

When it comes to purchasing luxury jewelry and timepieces, it is essential to find a jeweler you can trust with your money and possessions. Do research into the type of insurance policies the company has. Learn how they store the pieces they are servicing and how communicable they are about orders. For significant purchases like these, choose a jeweler that can ensure your jewelry’s safety.
