If you’re looking for jewellery for a special occasion or perhaps you just want something new, you most likely don’t have time to go to several jewellery and compare them.
Home, life and work commitments most likely keep you running and busy every day. This doesn’t leave you a lot of extra time to research jewellery in Canberra and the surrounding area. You want to ensure that you’re getting quality jewellery from a reliable source.
We’ll share our top picks for the best Canberra jewellers along with important criteria that you want to keep in mind when you’re considering a new jeweller. This way, you can get that new piece of jewellery you’ve been dreaming of.
What Makes a Reliable Jeweller?
Jewellery can be an expensive investment, and you want to be completely confident that your jeweller sells high-quality pieces and has a great reputation. We suggest that you look for the following traits.
- They’re reputable and established. You want to pick a jeweller that has a solid reputation for excellent customer service and high-quality wares. Also, it’s usually best to go to a jeweller who has been in business for years because they’ve had time to build up their experience and reputation.
- You can trust them. It’s important that you feel comfortable and trust your jeweller. Can you ask them questions? Good jewellers listen and focus on what you’re looking for. They’ll show you what you want as well as options you haven’t considered without leaving you feeling overwhelmed.
- Wide selection and varied services. Look for a jeweller that offers a wide variety of jewellery. Ideally, they’ll have a gemologist on staff to help you find the perfect stone, a bench jeweller on staff to help repair or resize your jewellery, and they offer custom work.
- Clear policies with fair prices. The policies should be easy to understand, fair, clear and concise. You’ll want to review them when you’re purchasing your jewellery so you have a good understanding if you have to use them.
