Bang for Your Buck- How to Spot the Best Deal on Jewelry

Monday, April 16, 2018

If you are reading this post, there is a good chance that you are a pretty frugal person who does not usually buy jewelry. However, sometimes a special occasion like a proposal, wedding, anniversary, birthday or holiday does come up and you feel the need to get someone a nice piece of jewelry to show them as a token of your appreciation. Or maybe you want to treat yourself to some bling. This is perfectly fine, you only live once, but we know you that you still want to get the best deal. We are here to give you some tips on how to spot the best deal on jewelry.

Avoid Big Brand Names

The big name brands can cost far more than the smaller brands. You are not even paying for quality, you are only paying for the name recognition. No one will even know what brand your ring or necklace is when you are wearing it. It can be a better idea to get a lesser known brand and maybe even spend the extra money on some more diamonds if you so chose to. This is probably the number one thing you can do to get the most bang for your buck. Do this one thing and you’re sure to save a boatload of money right from the start.

Look for a return policy

You just spent a pretty penny on a ring for your favorite person in the world only to find out that they don’t like the ring or the ring does not fit them. Oh no! Good thing you have a return policy, right? Make sure that there is a return policy, so you can always return your jewelry if things don’t go as planned and You do not want to lose a ton of money on your purchase. Any reputable jeweler, like, will  have a return policy. If a jeweler doesn't have a return policy, that is a red flag of how they do business.

Check the warranty

First of all, you want to be buying from a trustworthy jeweler, but with that being said, mistakes can happen. Be prepared in case they do. You do not want to spend all of that money on a necklace to have it fall apart on you. You also do not want to get a piece of jewelry that will have the diamonds fall out either, but if that were to happen, you would be covered with a good warranty. This is security for your investment. Look at the details of the warranty and see whether it covers manufacturer defects, accidents, etc. Also look at the length of the warranty. You ideally want it to last for a year or longer. This will give you the most peace of mind because it provides ample time for something to go wrong.

You now have all of the tools you need to go out there and get started on your jewelry shopping. Shopping for jewelry can be tough for us frugal spenders who want to save money and live well on less money, but there is always a time and place for some of the finer things in life.
