Tips to buy Jewellery

Jewellery is very precious possession, both emotionally and financially. The reason for buying jewellery can vary from Investment to Gifting or self-use. The reason for buying jewellery can be many and hence there are fair chances that each one of us must have landed in a Jewellery shop to buy Jewellery. But due to lack of knowledge we may end up making wrong choices or getting duped.

What points should be considered while buying Jewellery?

  • Buy Jewellery as per the need & purpose. The design should be chosen keeping in mind the occasion & lifestyle.
  • Always buy BIS Hallmarked Gold. Hallmark is an assurance of gold purity. The Gold purity is inscribed on the metal surface as 916 (22K), 750 (18K) & 58.5 (14K). 24K gold means 100% pure Gold. The Gold amount should be charged as per the Gold purity & weight.
  • Make sure that Gold weight in Gram & Gemstones weight in Carat are properly calculated, mentioned & charged in the Bill.
  • Always ensure that the Gemstones and Diamonds studded in the jewellery are certified by a reputed Laboratory. It is further advisable to get the jewellery tested on your own and take an independent opinion from reputed laboratory. GJI provides un-biased opinion & certification for authenticity & quality of jewellery.
  • Ask if there is any return/buy back policy of the store.
