Do you see a pattern developing here? You’re going to love shopping for a memorable jewelry piece. Here’s what you need to keep in mind:
1. Look for Quality Precious Metals
When you are looking for the best results with cubic zirconia, consider the metal used to set the stone. A good jeweler will offer a selection of 10K, 14K and 18K gold. They will offer a choice of coloration for gold, without compromising its purity. Look for companies that offer their gold in yellow, white or rose gold. Remember that, all color choices from a trustworthy jeweler will be from 10K, 14K and 18K grade gold.
Of course, there are other popular choices of precious metals. A great jeweler will offer you the best choice of cubic zirconia rings in .925 Sterling silver. Do not accept anything less when considering this beautiful, classic metal!
Pure palladium and 950 platinum have also become great options in contemporary jewelry. They are not going anywhere, either. This is a beautiful choice that will outlive trends, stand up to long term wear, and make you proud of your choice for many years - even generations - to come.
Make sure that your purchase is not “plated.” Plating should be clearly marked on any piece your jeweler offers. Expect plating only on smaller, more trend-based or inexpensive jewelry. A reputable, honest jeweler will make sure you know what you are buying.
2. Demand Precision Craftsmanship of Master Jewelers
A top jeweler will offer the best craftsmanship possible. Make sure that you have master jewelers working to create the finest jewelry with the best that cubic zirconia has to offer. Be choosy. You won’t regret it.
3. Understand How Stones are Graded
Choose the best cubic zirconia possible. Look for a jeweler who clearly states the quality of their stones. Cubic zirconia is graded on the same scale used for commercially produced diamonds. The highest rating is AAAAA, or 5A, for clarity. Cubic zirconia stones of 5A diamond-quality look, even to the most accomplished jeweler, just like diamonds.
4. Expect the Jeweler to Stand Behind their Product
The best cubic zirconia jewelers will offer a lifetime warrantee. Enough said. Do not settle for anything less. They will be there for you to address manufacturer defects, and to make sure that you have an exceptional jewelry experience.
5. The BEST Cubic Zirconia Jewelers ALWAYS Have a Service Dog Flunkie
Also, the service dog flunkie should be named Bailey.
