How To Buy Jewelry
You can get lost trying to find the best type of jewelry for yourself and for your loved one. Certainly, there are many jewelry items under different types of jewelry.
You can have platinum, gold, and silver in different styles. And you can have diamonds and colored precious stones in different cuts. You can also have different variations of standard Celtic jewelry.
If you want to know which jewelry to buy, you only need to consider two things: (a) your personal taste, (b) needs, and (c) budget. Here's a general how-to guide for the different gems:
You may need to enlist the help of professional diamond graders who can assess the value of a diamond based on the four C's of Carat, Color, Clarity, and Cut.
This will take some practice and a bit of training, but you should assess a pearl based on luster, size, shape, and surface.
Gemstone connoisseurs are wont to say that there are different categories as to what makes a piece of emerald, opal, ruby, sapphire or other colored gemstone a must-buy. So you might want to read further on.
Buy gold for its quality When a gold piece is .24 karats, it means that the gold item is pure, but it also means that it is more expensive and a lot less durable than gold that has been alloyed with other metals.
Sterling silver, or any silver for that matter, is 92.5% pure silver. But purity is really not an issue where silver is concerned. Practically the only thing that you should be concerned about is that there are no visible blemishes or imperfection on your jewelry piece.
