  1. https://www.kalmarantiques.com.au/ Questions to Ask when Choosing a Store to Buy Your Jewellery from

  2. Buying jewellery the correct way can be tricky, so it helps to have a dealer who will walk you through the process and let you make the right choice. To find out if your jeweller has your best interests at heart, here are some of the questions you can ask them.

  3. Is the jeweller established? What are their credentials? • Find out more about their previous customers. • Are they listed in the Better Business Bureau? • Have they been operating for a long time?

  4. Do they offer a variety of services? • Do they have a trained, in-house gemmologist who can guide you towards making the right selection?

  5. Can they help you repair and resize your jewellery like Kalmar Antiques Jewellerycan? • Can they design custom pieces for you, if that’s what you’re interested in?

  6. How do they handle diamond certification? • Certification proves that any stones in an item are natural and descries any treatments it may have undergone. A credited dealer should be able to show certification on every piece they sell.

  7. Can they walk you through the four Cs of Diamonds? • Carat which affects a diamond’s weight. • Colour, the whiter the diamond the purer it is. • Clarity determines how many flaws the stone has. • Cut should be worked to let the most amount of light shine through the diamond.

  8. Is this an investment piece? • You’ll likely be spending a lot of money on the item you are eyeing on. So ask your dealer what will happen (in their opinion) to the piece’s value as time goes on. • An investment piece should increase in value over time, meaning that you can make a profit if you sell it in years to come.

  9. Where do you get your diamonds? • Reputable dealers should be picking their stones from reputable sources. • There is much worry about the implications of buying ‘blood-diamonds’, and a good jeweller should be aware of this. • When dealing with a reputable antique jewellery store you should find that they want no part in dealing in stones that cause social problems elsewhere in the world.

  10. Do you have a payment plan? • You’ll likely be spending a lot of money on your item, so it might help you to know that you don’t always have to pay the total cost up front. • Watch out for shifty looking payment plans that have too high an interest, and may be designed to keep you in the dealer’s debt.

  11. Find out if the dealer you are working with is the best bet to give you a good price, a quality item, comprehensive services (before and after the sale), a decent payment plan and reliable stock by doing your research and asking the right questions. If you already have a trusted jeweller, then great, but you should still be asking them the right questions. Remember to shop around and try out a few dealers, that way you can compare them and see which one offers you the best business.
