Buying an engagement ring can be easier than you think, if you educate yourself before purchasing a diamond.
Enjoy the process and imagine the look of awe, surprise and love you’ll get when you put that perfect ring on their finger!
A good jeweler will ensure that your engagement ring buying process is stress-free. He or she will educate you about the 4Cs of diamond quality, answer your questions in detail, and help you narrow your choices to those that fit your intended’s tastes and your budget. Look for a jeweler with professional training and a good reputation – asking friends or relatives for recommendations or seeking a referral from a jewelry association is a good place to start. Learn about the store’s return policy. And be sure to ask for an independent grading report like those provided by GIA, prior to purchasing a diamond to validate the quality of your purchase. GIA’s Retailer Lookup can help locate a jeweler in your area who carries GIA graded diamonds and has GIA trained associates on staff.

WHAT IS JEWELRY APPRAISAL?
A jewelry appraisal is the process of a jewelry professional ( a gemologist appraiser in this case) assessing your jewelry items and allocating a monetary value for insurance purposes. For a diamond item, it will typically include information such as the GIA 4 C’s of the stone (carat weight, cut, color and clarity grades) and the total weight of the entire piece including the metal.
Jewelry appraisals are a great starting point when you are looking to get a value for your jewelry, as it typically details the key characteristics that will help a buyer establish a price. *******Be aware that because jewelry values can fluctuate over time, insurance companies require that you have your jewelry appraised every two to three years. They will never take your word for its value nor the receipt enough proof that your jewelry is indeed valuable.
