Buying jewelry can be fun, exciting and confusing. Whether you’re considering a gift of jewelry for someone special or as a treat for yourself, take some time to learn the terms used in the industry. A little knowledge could save you a lot of money and enable you to buy with confidence.
We created this buyer’s guide to help you understand the terminology used in describing jewelry. It contains some of the basic information you should know before buying any jewelry, including the 4 C’s and how to buy a diamond; descriptions of precious and semi-precious stones; the properties of different types of metals; and general information about caring for your jewelry. This buyer’s guide will not make you an expert, but it should help you become more comfortable in evaluating and choosing jewelry.
Shopping for jewelry can be an exciting process. At Vanscoy, Maurer & Bash Diamond Jewelers, we believe the more a customer knows about jewelry, the more they will appreciate the quality and tremendous value of our merchandise.
Our highly trained sales staff is always ready to answer any of your jewelry questions.
