5 Tips when shopping jewellery this Christmas

5 Tips when shopping jewellery this Christmas

1. Quality of the materials 

You want to know that the jewellery you buy or gift will last a life time. When buying gold-plated jewelry look-out for the quality and the thickness of the plating. For a reliable quality, choose gold-plated jewelry with a thickness of at-least 2-3 micron. Especially for rings always choose 3 microns.

2. Good returns policy & ring sizing support

We've all had a gift that didn't fit or match our style. Make sure when shopping this holiday that the designer has a friendly returns policy, just in case!  

3. Gift vouchers, wrapping & fast shipping

A good option when gifting jewellery is to order a gift voucher, allowing your loved one to pick out their own piece of jewellery. Make sure the gift voucher is beautiful packaged with a high quality gift wrapped feeling. Saving you time in the run up to the busy holiday period. Oh and make sure they offer fast delivery so it arrives in time! 

4. Buy direct from the designer 

This has many advantages not least to support local independent designers succeed against the big corporates! More importantly you are more likely to get a personal service and better quality handmade materials made with love.   

5. Ethically made & sourced materials

Gifting season is one of the worst times of the year for the environment and society. Make sure the jewellery designer has materials that are sourced from safe and ethical locations. You can check this by emailing the designer before making the purchase.
