Silver Rings Nairobi

Shopping for jewellery can be quite taxing especially if you are not well informed of the jewellery trends. In a different scenario, you could be looking to buy a jewellery piece for your significant other. This clearly shows that you also don’t have an idea of what exactly it is you would love to purchase.

Well, informed or not, here is a post that’s worth a read. First things first, please keep it in mind that jewellery stores keep popping up day after another. And the more the number of stores coming up, the higher the chances of fraudsters joining the marketing and selling fake pieces.

It is important that you find yourself a reliable jeweller; one who will give you good value for your money. On that note, here are some common mistakes you need to avoid when shopping for jewellery;

  • Going out of your budget – one of the biggest mistakes you would do is agree to pay for what you had not planned for. This means that you have no control of your spending and this is not a good things. Regardless of how nice that jewellery ring, or that sparkling silver necklace is, do not spend money that you do not have. Please set a budget and stick to that budget to the very end. If you find something you like that is way out of your budget, keep saving until you can comfortably afford it.
  • Not educating yourself – you might assume that since you are dealing with experts you do not need to educate yourself about jewellery. Believe it or not, educating yourself about sterling silver and the impacts they have on the wearer will help you easily locate your pieces. You will know what suits who or where and you will be good to go.
  • Guessing the size of your jewellery – assuming that you are looking to buy a ring, you should make sure that you have the right size. A ring should easily slip in the finger, so whether you are buying for yourself or for someone special, ensure that you know the size before shopping for a one.

Quick tip; if you are buying for someone and you want it to be a surprise, you can trace one of their old rings on a piece of paper and give the paper to your jeweller. He or she will be able to get the right size of ring for your special someone.

  • Not considering the recipient’s tastes and preferences – we all have specifics when it comes to wearing jewellery. So, if you are buying jewellery for someone, ensure that you know what they like. If the recipient doesn’t wear bracelets, then there is no point of getting them one as this is a clear indication that this piece means little to them.

If you know what you are looking for, buying jewellery will be fun. Avoid the mistakes above and you will definitely have the easiest time shopping.
