Jewelry stores abound in Cincinnati and in many other cities so it can be difficult to decide which one you should choose. In any downtown area, it seems there is a jewelry store on every corner and in every mall. The question many ask is whether or not there are any tips that can them find a decent jewelry store in Cincinnati. The answer is, yes, there are some tips.

Information

A piece of jewelry is a big investment if you want beauty, dazzle and real materials. Therefore, it is important to arm yourself with as much information about the stores and the jewelry itself to ensure you choose the right shop. Select a few stores that you would like to look into and then go online and see what kind of information they have. Try to find out how many years they have been in the business, whether they provide details about services and products and the types of products they have. Most jewelers will provide this information so that it is quick to find and easy to understand. If they don’t, then you might consider a different shop.

Credentials

Jewelers need to understand everything they can about jewelry. A great place to start is the Better Business Bureau. Simply go online to their website and input the company name. Look for one with an “A” rating and read through reviews.

You should also question the staff about their credentials. Most jeweler staffs have GIA credentials and other industry-specific credentials that are relevant. You may also want to consider if the store in question is a member of the AGS. Look for any information about awards, degrees and certificates they may have that will show they are legitimate and trustworthy.

Price

Everyone wants to get a good deal, and this is true of jewelry, as well. It is always good to compare prices, though remember that typically, lower-quality items will be priced far less than high-quality items. However, compare the price of fine items with other fine items to get an idea of the savings you may find.

Another option is to find something you like and then ask if the company will work with you on pricing. Many times, discounts aren’t provided for diamonds because they are of high quality, but many companies will discount the setting or give you a discount for purchasing more than one piece.
