Jewellery designers in the UK have most definitely come of age. Their patterns and designs are finding global appeal and even overseas clients are getting lured by the lovely ornaments being produced in the UK. Bridal jewellery is one of the most attractive sections of this market, but this is not to say that the casual jewellery wearer is left disappointed either. Nikola Valenti’s Address Jewellery stores all over UK are flooded with finely crafted jewels that cater to almost any palate. These ornaments come in a large range when it comes to price too and those on a shoe string budget can also find something to fit their pocket, while for the heavy duty spender of course the sky is the limit.
It is combination of finely crafted jewellery pieces and awe inspiring designs along with dependable authentic materials that has made jewellery UK so popular. However, when setting out to raid those jewellery stores, it will help to keep a few tips in mind
Purpose – When you buy a piece of jewellery, consider carefully if you are looking at it purely from a cosmetic point of view, or are you keen on viewing it as an investment too. In most cases bridal jewellery is seen as an investment, while casual everyday wear has more of cosmetic appeal. Remember when investing in jewellery, do take time to consider the quality of the gold or platinum, the cut and size of the precious stones and of course the fee being charged for the workmanship. It is always better to see the more expensive jewellery as an investment, since the smaller and cheaper ornaments do not usually give high returns. In case the idea is to buy purely for casual wear, then it is better to stick with the silver or German silver side of the jewellery stores.
Finesse – No one likes to buy badly finished ornaments and with the jewellery designers producing such amazingly finely crafted jewellery, no one has to either. However, do keep in mind that in most cases well finished jewellery does come at a higher price. So when buying ornaments, be prepared to pay more for those pieces that are either finished rather well or quite unique in their designs. Also remember that in case you do return these pieces to the store it self you will only be refunded the amount for the precious metals and stones and not the money that you paid for the workmanship.
Effort – Handmade jewellery will almost always cost way more than machine made ornaments; the reason for this is the extra effort that goes into making these pieces. So when buying ornaments keep this fact in mind. Again there are certain ornaments that take much longer to craft as opposed to others; here too, the price tag on them will in all probability be much higher. So a bracelet of pure gold will cost more than a chain of a similar amount of gold, since the former takes more time to craft.
