Diamond Guide

Buying a diamond for an engagement ring is one of the most exciting and emotional purchases you will ever make. When shopping for a jeweller here are a few important questions to keep in mind:

– What are the credentials of the salesperson? Are they a GIA trained Gemmologist, and an actual jewellery designer who can show a live portfolio?

– If selecting a white metal what are the benefits of platinum over white gold? (see The Platinum Guild’s website)

– What after sales service is offered on the jewellery?

– Where is the jewellery made?

– Is the store accredited? (search for Accredited Appraisers here) Did you know that there are only 53 Accredited Appraiser in Canada, and only 9 in Western Canada?
