Buying a new piece of jewelry for yourself or a loved one can often be a very rewarding experience, but it can sometimes be a bit tricky to know if you are getting a good deal on the jewelry or if the jewelry is worth what you paid. Listed below are two ways to get the most for your money when buying jewelry.
Make Sure To Bargain
One of the most important things that you can do when buying a piece of jewelry is to remember that you do not necessarily have to pay the list price on the jewelry. In many cases, the jewelry store is going to have a bit of wiggle room or leeway when it comes to the price on their jewelry where they can still sell it and make a profit.
However, whether or not the jewelry store makes a large profit off of your purchase is not really your concern, you will want to bargain so that you can get the best price for you, not the jewelry store. One of the techniques that you can use one bargaining with the jewelry store is to stop by the store and spend some time looking at a particular piece, at which point you should simply leave and let the salesperson know that you are going to check out some other local jewelry stores.
At that point, the salesperson may just knock some money off the price of the jewelry in order to prevent you from leaving. The reason that this works is that many sales people at jewelry stores are actually being paid on commission, so that salesperson does not want you to go to a competitor at all, which can lead to lower prices for you.
Make Sure To Hire An Appraiser
Another way to get the most for your money when buying jewelry is to make sure to hire an appraiser immediately after buying the jewelry. Now, many jewelry stores will attempt to offer you a free appraisal from a recommended appraiser if you buy a piece of jewelry, but you never really know if you're getting the most accurate appraisal from those individuals because they are partnered with the jewelry store. Instead, you will want to hire an independent appraiser immediately after the purchase so that he or she can let you know if the jewelry is worth what you paid, at which point you can simply return it if you overpaid for the jewelry in the appraiser's opinion.
Drop by your local jewelry store in order to discuss what options you have when it comes to getting the most for your money when buying jewelry and to determine if they have any jewelry that meets your needs.
