Jewellery is not all the same. There is fashion jewellery, quality fine jewellery, jewellery that’s been mass-produced in a factory and jewellery that’s hand-crafted and far more unique. In Australia, there are loads of choices when it comes to jewellery of all kinds, but if you plan to propose to your significant other, then you’re going to be in the market for something special when it comes to engagement rings and wedding rings.
If you’re in Sydney, here are some tips on finding quality unique diamond wedding rings and engagement rings in the Sydney area, but first, let’s take a quick look at why you should go for something a little more unique.
Why Should I Choose a Unique Engagement Ring?
Firstly, what makes an engagement ring unique?
It will be a ring like no other or, at the very least, a ring that not many people own. Many rings are mass-produced in factories in the tens of thousands. If you choose one of these, chances are high that many others will be wearing the same ring.
To find a design that’s more unique, you’ll either want a personally hand-crafted ring made just for you, or select one from a limited edition type of collection, to be assured that not many others can possibly have the same engagement ring.
Now you might be wondering: How do I pick a unique design for an engagement ring?
For starters, shop at fine jewellery stores and jewellers that have individuality, rather than the chain store jewellers that all stock the exact same jewellery items right across the country. There’s nothing wrong with chain stores, but you’re not going to find a unique engagement ring in one of them.
For a unique ring, it might be an idea to have it custom-made to your design specifications, or seek out a ring from a store that specialises in more unique jewellery pieces.
Search Online for the Right Jewellery Store
While you might be able to stroll around the markets in Sydney and find some unusual jewellery for sale, much of this jewellery is either costume jewellery or jewellery of a lower quality.
You’re far better off targeting those fine jewellery stores that were mentioned in the previous section. One of the easiest ways to narrow down a few options is to search for unique fine jewellery stores online for the Sydney area.
A couple of points you might search for are jewellery stores that are renowned for selling high-quality jewellery and unique jewellery items. You also might want to target certain areas of Sydney as well, such as some of the following:
Once you’ve narrowed down a few options, browse the catalogues on their websites and see what they have on offer and whether their jewellery looks common or more unique. Also, see if you can find any independent reviews and testimonials about the jeweller online, so you can discover what other customers are saying.
Not only do you want to find a jewellery store that offers unique engagement and wedding rings, but also one that is renowned for providing high quality at fair prices, along with good customer service.
Take An Expert Shopping With You
Not everyone is a jewellery connoisseur, so if you feel like you’re all at sea when it comes to selecting a unique engagement ring, find someone who knows a lot more about jewellery than you do and take them ring shopping with you. At least they’ll have a keener eye for quality and be more able to spot a unique piece that looks great.
As you shop around, trying to make a decision on a ring, they’ll be able to offer you some advice and probably also be more aware of whether a ring is a fair price or not.
Shopping for an engagement ring or wedding ring can be stressful if you don’t know what you are doing, but will be a lot more fun if you take a knowledgeable friend with you.
