3 Ways To Save Money When Buying Jewelry

by Barry Graves

One of the most difficult parts about buying any type of jewelry is the sometimes high costs that are often associated with nice jewelry, mostly due to the gemstones that are included in most of the nicer pieces of jewelry. However, there are a few things that you can do to save money when buying jewelry, such as the three listed below:

Consider Lab-Created Stones

One of the easiest ways to save money on jewelry, especially if you are dead set on getting a piece of jewelry that has a precious stone, is to consider lab-created stones. In most cases, there is going to be a lab-created variant of pretty much any type of precious or semi precious stone that you could possibly consider for a piece of jewelry. These types of stones are a great alternative to natural stones because they are often created in a lab under ideal environments, which can often lead to stones that have more clarity and a better shape than most of the ones that you would find in nature.

The main reason that you will want to consider-lab created stones is that they are going to be substantially cheaper than their natural counterparts. This is due to the fact that lab created stones are not exactly rare or hard to get your hands on.

Consider Semi Precious Stones

Another option to consider when trying to save money on jewelry is to consider semi precious stones and not get hung up on having to have one of the more expensive and popular precious stones. One of the reasons that this is so helpful is that many semi precious stones will cost a small fraction of the price of the precious stones and will often have very attractive colors and patterns that can really make your jewelry stand out.

Consider Enlisting The Help Of An Independent Appraiser

Finally,  when trying to save money and ensure that you are getting your money's worth when buying jewelry, consider enlisting the help of an independent appraiser. Whenever you buy a piece of jewelry, make sure that the jeweler provides you with all of the attributes of both the stone and the setting in writing so that you can take that to an appraiser.

With that information in hand, the appraiser will be able to verify that you have received what you paid for. In the event that the piece of jewelry does not match the jeweler's claims, you can return the piece of jewelry in order to either get your money back or to negotiate a price that is more in line with what you received.
