Well, when you go to buy jewelry on a Dhanteras, wedding anniversary or any other occasion, tell me exactly what you see and buy? Well known brands, trusted shops, old jewelers, gold prices, designs, budgets etc etc ... is that so? Oh well, are you more cautious? Only when the best offer comes, go to buy jewelry, so that the fout also matches the jewelry? But once you think about it, when you go to buy jewelry, once you think, take a good look at the bill? Or take a look at the terms and conditions that are written below the announcement of the offer, or go shopping? In fact, buying jewelry is not an easy task at all. After looking at a lot of things, then you should buy gold and silver jewelry, because you have to spend a lot of money to buy them and we consider this kind of jewelry to be lucky! But many of us buy jewelry most of the time without noticing all the aspects. Maybe I went a little farther when buying bridal jewelry at the wedding, but since the amount of money is less when buying small jewelry, so the thought became less. We say, do a little homework when buying all kinds of expensive jewelry and also keep in mind some things (things to remember) when buying jewelry.
1 Find out how pure gold and silver are
22 and 24, the type of gold jewelry we bought used these two carat gold. 22 carat gold means, that gold is 92 percent pure and 24 carat means that gold is 99.9 percent pure. Usually gold jewelry is made of 22 carats and gold coins or gold bars are made of 24 carats. Apart from this, Jaroya or stone setting jewelery is made with 20 or 18 carats. The more carats of gold, the harder the gold. Since gold needs to be soft to make jewelry, jewelry is made with 22 carat or less gold. The price of gold depends on the carat of gold. So when choosing jewelry, you need to know how many carats it is made of. Many jewelers have a carat meter. You can also see how pure the gold is. Hallmark Gold is very popular these days. If you have Hallmark, you can buy that gold with your eyes closed! Because, there is no doubt about its authenticity!
Its purity must also be seen in the case of silver. Pure silver is a very soft metal. So jewelry is not made with it. Even silver utensils are not made of pure silver. All are made of sterling silver, which is made by mixing 92.5 per cent silver with 7.5 per cent any other metal (mostly copper). Jewelry, utensils and other fancy things are made with this silver. The harder the silver, the lower its purity!
2. Gold-silver market price
The price of gold and silver is fixed daily by the government. Before going to the store, get the right idea about the price per gram of hard gold, the price per gram of gold jewelery, the price of pure silver, etc. Before going to the store and choosing jewelry, see if gold and silver are being sold there at the official price. Let the shopkeeper know if there is any difference in price and buy jewelry at the right price.
3. Making charge
In case of gold or silver jewelery the making charge is taken as per gram. Bulk making charges usually do not exist. If a jeweler wants to confuse you with this, be careful. Before choosing jewelry, know the making charge per gram. Usually the making charge of handmade jewelry is higher and the making charge of machinemade jewelry is lower. So when buying jewelry, don't forget to ask the shopkeeper if the jewelry is handmade or machinemade!
4. Take a look at the weight
Whether gold or silver, the price of jewelry largely depends on its weight. So, check the weight first. If it is a necklace, you have to weigh it by removing the tassel. In the case of earrings, skip the buzz. Caution should be exercised in the case of stone pendants or necklaces. There will be a different weight of stone. In this case, you have no choice but to rely on the jeweler. You can know the quality of the stones, whether they are pressed or semi-pressed. And yes, no matter how much we jump around, you can find out the price of both gold and silver in the village.
5. Look at the bill, understand
This bill is a very serious scam case! What should be in a clear, mature bill? How much gold or silver did you buy, its weight, its price per gram and total price according to the market price of that day, its carat or purity, whether any stone was used in it, if so, its quality and price, what is the making charge per gram, How much money has been taken as GST etc. Seeing all this, understanding, combining then you will pay the money.
.6 Offer and buy back policy
Be careful about these two things in advance. When you see an offer to buy gold and silver, go to the store and find out about the offer in advance. If there is a discount on gold, what kind of gold, whether it is a discount on making charge or on the price of gold, how much carat gold can be bought, this discount can be obtained, etc. You will start seeing jewelry only if you get a satisfactory answer.
Buy back policy, that is, what are the rules when selling gold, find out when buying from a jeweler. Find out how much gold they will omit or omit at all, whether they will have to pay the bill or the store monogram on the jewelry is enough. However, it is better to say one thing here, you will get the best price only if you go to the shop to sell or exchange the jewelry.
