4 Tips For Buying Better Jewelry

Accessorizing properly is the key to creating an incredible wardrobe and a good set of jewelry is essential if you’re going to get it right. Even just one piece, if chosen and used properly, can turn a boring outfit into a stunning one. But so many people don’t know what to pick and how to make sure that they’re getting the best quality. Read this quick guide to choosing jewelry and you’ll get it right every time.

Always Pay For Quality

You can easily pick up cheap jewelry and if you’re just getting things for everyday wear, it doesn’t matter if you don’t spend that much on it. But certain things, especially stuff like gold, silver and diamonds, you need to be paying for quality. Working out whether you’re getting good quality diamonds is often hard because the grading systems can get a bit confusing. Check out this VVS diamonds Guide at Whiteflash so you know what you’re buying. When it comes to anything metal, you need to be careful because the cheap stuff might have a bad reaction on your skin and make you come out in a rash.

Choose Versatile Pieces

If you’re going to spend a lot of money on a piece of good quality jewelry, you can’t afford to be buying a different piece for every single outfit. That’s why it’s so important that you pick  things that will work with a lot of different outfits. Try to choose things that are fairly neutral and think about how you’re going to wear it before you decide whether to buy it or not.

Budget Before Buying

Walking into a jewelry shop and picking things out at random is an easy way to spend all of your money in a short amount of time. You don’t want to get attached to something, only to find out that it’s way out of your price range. Instead, you should decide how much you can afford to spend before you shop and set yourself a strict budget. That way, your spending won’t get out of control and you won’t have any unrealistic expectations about what you can buy. Never buy anything there and then either, you should always go away and think about it. If you still want it in a couple of days, come back and buy it. If you’re in an independent store, you might even get a discount if they think that you’re unsure about it. Or you can visit here to discover some fantastic designs that fit your desire and budget. 

Buy Seasonal

Your wardrobe for winter is going to be a lot different to your summer wardrobe which means that you need to buy summer accessories as well. The bigger, flashier pieces of jewelry are more suited to summer wardrobes because you’ve got a bit more freedom with colors and you can be a little bolder. When winter rolls around, you’re going to be wearing a lot of darker colors and your outfits will be generally more understated. That means you need to choose pieces of jewelry that are smaller and perhaps have fewer diamonds in them.

Follow these jewellery buying tips and you’ll get great accessories without breaking the bank.

  • Good Looking out! Great tips!

  • (4 Tips For Buying Better Jewelry) About a month ago I went to a small town city wide garage sale and made a killing on some real pretty jewelry that one lady was selling for fifty cents a piece. I bought a ton of it for myself, my twenty-nine year old daughter, and some of my best friends for upcoming gifts.

  • I liked what you said about going into the store with a budget. My husband has been talking about taking me to the jewelry store to get something for our anniversary. I don’t think that he’s done anything like this, so I’ll just be sure to have an amount in mind for when we go to the store.

  • You made a good point when you said that it’s important to decide how much you can afford to spend in buying a jewelry before shopping. My sister and I are planning to shop for sets of fashion jewelry for all the women in our family. We don’t want to end up spending our personal savings because of buying out of impulse, so we’ll make sure to set a budget.
