Buy Jewellery

Buying jewellery seems to reside in the domains of ladies per se, and it seems to be that only woman knows all about jewellery, however that is not always true. Guys like me do certainly acquire a fair knowledge of jewellery when we start to look around for the engagement ring to propose to our wife and wedding band for marital bliss .

It can be really a daunting task for a man without any knowledge of jewellery to start the search for the jewellery, culminating in the final purchase!

First of all, one has to learn the jewellery parlance: from the clarity, cut of the diamond on the engagement ring to the colour of the diamond as well as how the number of carats of the diamond is measured.

Next, one will need to sound out to his partner what is the type of engagement wedding ring she is interested. These will require questions like asking what colour of the diamond, what is the number of carats, what is the cut (VVSI or VVSII, for example) and most importantly the size of the wedding ring which is suitable for your significant other (else the engagement ring may not fit!)

Then it will be heading down to the jewellery shops at the shopping centres or in the heartland malls. In Singapore, there are hundreds of jewellery shops from Aspial Jewellery, Lee Hwa Jewellery, to GoldHeart Jewellery, TianPo Jewellery among many others. The guy will usually flit from one shop to another, asking the service officer at these shops to produce all the rings which meet the 'buying specifications' and then comparing prices to decide whether the ring to be purchased will meet the ultimate budget of the guy.

Coming back to my very own experience, it is really a meaningful thing to go looking for a great wedding engagement ring for my Dear! It was also a very fun and enriching experience as I get to know about the nuts and bolts of jewellery. For example, I was shocked to learn that a diamond of fewer carats on a ring could cost less than one with more carats and the difference is due to the fact that the former diamond is cut and sphered more professionally!

Diamonds has always be marvelled upon by man since time immemorial. This Perfect stone does really symbolizes Perfect Love and the strength and beauty of the diamond is always being seized upon by jewellery shops as a symbol of the everlasting eternity of love and this thinking has since been ingrained into the DNA of all of us!
