Wedding Jewellery - Wedding Rings
Where should we buy our Wedding Jewellery and Wedding Rings?
The simple answer is to buy from knowledgeable, professional jewellers. Ask friends and family for recommendations and then check out a Jewellers' credentials.
Before you step inside a jewellery shop, look for a sign, which confirms it is a member of the National Association of Goldsmith – NAG, members have to abide by strict professional guidelines and have undertaken recognised training courses. Once inside, ask the jeweller about his or her professional background and look for NAG diplomas and certificates on display to confirm that staff have been trained.
If the Jeweller is an independent retailer look out for a sign showing The Company of Master Jewellers - CMJ, membership is restricted to independent jewellers who can prove that they confirm to strict guidelines in terms of the quality and service they offer to their customers
Don't be afraid to ask lots of questions when buying jewellery. A professional jeweller will be happy to answer your questions. When viewing jewellery set with diamonds ask about diamond qualities – you should be told about the 4C's.
The best way to understand quality gold jewellery is to pick up the piece you like and hold it in the palm of your hand. Look for the items hallmark. A 750 mark means that the piece is 18ct gold and contains more than twice the amount of pure gold than 9ct gold. You will find no rough edges, and the finish will be perfect. All the little details will be ‘just so'. Fine quality jewellery will have strong, well – formed clasps and safety chains that work. Even the smallest details such as tiny claws, which hold stones in place, will be perfectly formed.
Buying jewellery should be a hassle-free, enjoyable experience that will have you coming back for more.
