We know how difficult it can sometimes be to choose the right piece of jewelry and to consider all the essentials related to the safety of the purchase. In this article, we offer you some of the most important things to consider before buying jewelry.
The seller must be responsible for the quality of the jewelry he sells.
AMAZING HANDCRAFTED JEWELRY
1. Jewelry production
The items you are going to buy should be made by the shop's craftsmen and not bought by a vendor elsewhere. The seller must be responsible for the quality of the jewelry he sells. If the seller resells the items, he cannot be 100% sure, for example, of the metal and stones used in the product.
How can I protect myself against sellers who resell jewelry?
First of all, you should pay attention to the whole range of goods. The following may be warning signs:
- Shop for different styles of jewelry
- Jewelry that is too cheap
- Poor quality pictures
It is also worth reading the reviews to make sure the products match the description and photos.
2. Warranty and terms and conditions
Before you buy, it's a good idea to check the terms and conditions of the shop in case your jewelry breaks or you want to have it cleaned. Then you can be sure that they will help you solve any problems with your jewelry.
It is worth remembering that each shop has its exchange/return/repair policy, so it is worth finding out about these important points in advance.
It is also best to ask the retailer in advance for any questions you may have. It is particularly important to ask about ring sizes and chain lengths so that you can find the most suitable option for you.
3. Special features for caring for metal and stone
Jewelry is usually made of silver or gold, or a combination of these metals. For each option, you need to know the care features. Sometimes knowledge of these features determines the choice of jewelry.
Silver requires regular care, especially oxidized silver. Every week, silver jewelry must be cleaned with a soft, dry cloth. Once every few months (or as needed), it is worthwhile to clean it with soapy water and a brush.
Gold requires less care, but care should also be taken to ensure that your jewelry lasts longer. Of course, gold jewelry should also be cleaned regularly, as the fine parts get dirty.
4. Product Style
Before you buy, decide on a style of jewelry. This, firstly, will help you narrow down your search, and, secondly, you'll be able to think in advance about what items and jewelry you'll pair the item with.
Also, keep in mind that not all rings will be suitable for everyday wear. For example, large rings will be awkward, or jewelry pieces with sharp edges may not be the most comfortable to wear. Such pieces are best worn for special occasions such as dinner at a restaurant or a party.
5. Decoration settings
If you are buying a ring, it is important to know the size in advance. Otherwise, you may end up with a ring that doesn't fit you. Sometimes even a quarter of size makes all the difference, so don't neglect this meaningful adjustment.
We also recommend that you choose your pendant chains carefully. Not only should the chain match the style of the pendant, but it should also be of a length that suits you. Remember that there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all chain as everyone's neck is different.
It's also better to know in advance about the stone that will be in the ring. You probably already know that each stone has its properties and characteristics. Some stones are energetically powerful and some require special care. It is advisable to find out about all these characteristics beforehand.
If you are allergic to any component in the metal, such as nickel, it is worth asking the seller in advance about the content of the metal he uses when creating jewelry. This way, you can be sure that the product will not make you uncomfortable.
There are many important points to consider before you buy to be sure of choosing your jewelry. We don't recommend buying spontaneously because you might regret it later. Give yourself time to consider the pros and cons before making a decision.
