Monday is already here and so is June! This year is passing by so quickly with summer coming up fast. Before we start planning all the beach/pool parties, (which we will soon!), we wanted to share some fabulous tips to start the week off. Shopping for jewelry can be a difficult task if you aren’t sure what you are looking for. If you are buying for yourself, you may know what you like, but you can’t choose. When it comes to finding the perfect piece of jewelry for your wedding day, we’ve got some fantastic tips:
- Only purchase jewelry from well known retailers. If you are looking to purchase gold, silver or platinum make sure that the retailer has a professional set up and that their products come with a guarantee. Do not purchase from unknown vendors who claim that the jewelry they are selling at a discount price is made from real precious metals or gemstones, they are often imported fakes.
- Some classic and very affordable types of jewelry that are available are pearls. These are very classic staples to any collection. They are also available in three types that include natural, imitation, and cultured. There are many colors and variations available such as classic white, pink, gold, black, etc. This may be a great choice to pair with your wedding gown. It is classy and simple, yet can be elegant and a statement piece.
- When buying a ring or bracelet to compliment your engagement ring, make sure that it is of high quality and has great design. You want a ring with a lot of hand detail which shows fine craftsmanship.
- If you are buying jewelry for your bridesmaids or maid of honor, it may be a good idea to shop for their birthstone. Knowing their favorite (like ruby, emerald or diamond) can also be helpful. Make sure you’re picking something that expresses their style and personality.
Keep these tips in mind the next time you go shopping for jewelry.
