Interview Questions For the Jeweler - Engagement & Wedding Rings

Finding the right jeweler where you select your engagement and wedding rings may be a little different than a few years ago. 

There are several elements to consider prior to finding a quality jeweler.  Store history, years in business, look for "complaints against" on Google and gain referrals from a friend.  BELOW are part of the questions that all add up to finding a "good business reputation". They are all part of your beginning to build trust with your jeweler. 

What Do They Cost?  Prices range from $200 for a zircon to $10,000 and beyond. Take a good look at your earnings and your budget. If planning a wedding - attempt to pay off the rings prior to making deposits on your wedding day celebration. Buy what you can afford. 

Ask Your Intended What She Would Like: 

Diamonds come in different shapes, quality of stone and set in different metals.

Preferred styles - review some websites or the videos on the right ... to see what you like.

  1. Preference to metals - white or yellow gold or rose gold, platinum, silver, colbalt, titanium, stainless steel, tungsten or palladium.  Each look best against specific skin tones or set off a diamond well. Some work great for engraving.  Some people have metal allergies.
  2. Do you want an individually styled ring by a craftsman?
  3. Do you want a vintage style, modern, stones, no stones, matching set of his & her rings?
  4. Some brides to be do not like two rings - they may just want one on their hand.

When you decide to SURPRISE your lady with an engagement ring, it helps to begin with a reputable jeweler who can help you select with the option of bringing the ring back in for exchange....and for re-sizing.  (Personally I love hearts; buy them, wear them and many have given me heart pendants and pins.  My sweetheart purchased the perfect heart shaped stone and ring for my engagement ring.  It was a  gorgeous set - but I am a writer and no matter how hard I tried to type with it on, it got in my way.  I knew if I took it off and laid it down - it would eventually get lost, so we returned it for one ring that perches beautifully on my hand at all times.
