There are certain professionals that you build a lifelong relationship with, such as your doctor and mechanic. A jeweler is another professional that you can turn to for all of life’s special occasions. From birthdays to anniversaries, sometimes a fine jewelry gift is the best way to express your appreciation and love. Here are some of the advantages of establishing a lifelong relationship with your jeweler.
They know jewelry
Jewelers are experts in their field. Your lifelong jeweler should have formal education and certifications from industry organizations like the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) or Jewelers of America. This formal training means that they have a thorough knowledge of all aspects of jewelry, from the 4Cs of diamonds to the purity of precious metals.
At Vanscoy, Maurer & Bash Diamond Jewelers here in Lancaster, PA, our team is led by a graduate of the GIA and Certified Gemologist from the American Gem Society. We bring our expertise to every interaction with our customers, so that we can help them pick the perfect gift.
They can educate you on jewelry
When you’re shopping for fine jewelry, there are many aspects to consider. You want to be sure you’re getting the best value and a fair price, but there are subtle details that go into the price. Even though there are many self-education resources on the internet, it’s hard to know which ones to trust. There is a lot of misinformation out there so you need to be careful.
Establishing a relationship with a trusted jeweler can help you become more knowledgeable about jewelry. Your jeweler can educate you on different aspects of jewelry, much like a teacher.
You get a better value
The value of your jewelry is dependent on many different elements, from the cut of the diamond to the karat of the gold. You want to get the best value for your money, but the true value of a piece is hard to determine without expert analysis.
More personalized recommendations
A major benefit of returning to the same jeweler throughout your lifetime is that they get to know you on a personal level. They will become familiar with your style and tastes, as well as your loved ones’ styles. This means better, more personalized recommendations when you need a gift for any occasion. Some jewelers even offer personal shopping services to take some of the stress out of gift-giving.
