Okay we can’t promise that we can make you a jewelry expert but if you’re in Houston and you’re thinking of buying some Houston jewelry, the good news is you’re in one of the best places to buy it. In this post we will look at some tips that will make you feel like you’re a little more informed when it comes to buying the fancy stuff. This post should at least ensure you have a strong chance of buying good stuff.

One of the easiest ways to be sold jewelry that is less than high quality centres around buying platinum pieces. Everyone says platinum is worth buying these days, and it’s true that a nice ring with platinum in it, for example, is a lovely piece of jewelry. But don’t be fooled when you are buying platinum, sometimes you can buy stuff that is less than perfect. Some people buy ‘platinum’ when in reality it is white gold for example. Both metals are obviously of strong value, but if you want platinum and you’re not sure if what you’re buying is legitimate platinum, ask for a similar piece in white gold. You will find straightaway that the platinum piece (if it is platinum) is noticeably heavier.


If you are buying true quality jewelry, never buy on the first visit to a store. This is not much of a problem if you’re buying online though, since you can browse your favorite brands like paradigm jewelry and others at several different online stores, compare the quality, price, and other factors, and then decide. If you’re still adamant about going to physical stores, some excellent stores sell bespoke, high-quality items, but it is always wise to visit this place a couple of times at least, just so you know that you’re not buying on impulse. You may also, in some places, be in a position where you can bargain a little on the final price. Of course, with expensive jewelry, bargaining is not always an option, but be ready to at least make a suggestion, and you may find that you get a better deal.

Once you have left a store after that first visit, for example, you can always do some research on prices and then come back more confident, with a better idea of a price you can bargain for. You can also visit online jewelry stores to see various designs and customization options if you are purchasing an expensive piece. You can find exceptional designs and a huge range of jewelry sold by companies similar to Jacobs The Jeweller, along with discounts and other benefits. Make a note that it is not always a good idea to try and bargain, especially if you are visiting a renowned jewelry brand.

Our final piece of advice concerns diamonds. If a jeweler asks that you look at it under sunlight to get a better shine, don’t bother, Every single diamond in the world will sparkle in the sunlight, that’s how they are found. This is not a mark of quality, and is simply a way to make you want to buy it. Trust your instincts, and look for pieces that really impress you under the lights of the store.

So there are some quick tips on at least feeling more confident when buying jewelry. They are worthwhile investments for the future, just take your time when buying and try and be as informed as possible.
