20 Apr How To Save While Buying Jewellery
Is jewellery your first love? Do you wish you could fill your drawers with all different types, sizes and colours of rings, bracelets, necklaces and watches? The love of jewellery is great, but jewellery doesn’t always come cheap. Thankfully, there are some things you can do to save yourself a bit of money while still building yourself a fabulous collection.
Be In The Know
Cultivate a relationship with the staff at your local jewellery store. Chances are the salespeople will give you a heads up on any upcoming sales or specials the next time you’re in. Another easy way to be in the know is to sign up for any email newsletters from your local jewellers. It’s a simple way to get a first look at the latest products and events. And lastly, join any reward programs the store has — like our Prestige Rewards Club.
Consider Pre-Owned Pieces
Buying an already loved piece can often score you the best deal. As long as it’s been well taken care of, you’ll often get a fantastic, well-maintained, almost new, piece of jewellery for a lot less money than brand new. At Impeccable Jewellery, we are proud to offer a huge selection of quality pre-owned luxury watches at very affordable prices.
Know The Secrets
When you need advice, don’t you go to the experts first? Your local jewellery store staff should be experts on jewellery. When you need tips on getting your favourite pieces at the best price, head to them first.
For example, if you read our blog post on Diamonds, you know there are some secrets such as “buying shy.” That means buying diamond rings with a carat slightly below the half or full mark. A 0.9-carat diamond looks near-identical to a full carat but can save you $1000 or more.
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend but most women actually like other, less expensive, gems as much if not more than diamonds. Do some research and see what catches your eye. gems come in all different shapes, sizes and colours and can be quite spectacular.
While you may have your heart set on a gold band to go with that gem, keep an open mind on other metals. Often, silver or other metals are just as nice and can save you a fair bit of money in the process.
Incorporate Costume Jewellery
You want to keep up with the latest jewellery styles but with trends coming and going so often, buying jewellery in a certain size or colour just to follow the latest style for a season can be a waste. Invest in a few quality timeless pieces then supplement the rest of your jewellery with less expensive “costume” jewellery pieces.
You can most often find the best deals and the most original pieces at locally-owned jewellery stores. At Impeccable Jewellery, we know what we’re talking about and will help you find exactly what you want. We offer top-notch unique gems from all over the world and can customize a piece you’ll love for years to come.
