We are going to show you here what you need to look for when considering a jeweller and how to go about finding one. First, you need to consider the type of jewellery you are after. If all you need is cheap costume jewellery, then you can easily find retail outlets selling it any of the large shopping centers around Melbourne, of which there are dozens in and around Melbourne and the surrounding suburbs.
What we are focusing on here though are the finer jewellers. If you are after a fine jeweller, then the search becomes lot more complicated and risky. You need to carefully consider a number of things when looking, first of all, you need to consider why you need the jeweller.
Custom Jewellers Melbourne
Believe it or not, jewellers are not all the same, even when they appear to be. Different jewellers do different things. Some specialise in different areas of jewellery making. For instance, some of the areas of the trade are: engagement rings, custom jewellery, diamonds, different metals, different stones etc. If you need more info on the different types of jewellery, you may want to star your search here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewellery – to get an idea of the types and range of jewellery.
Lets focus for a moment on engagement rings. If you are looking for a jeweller in Melbounre for purpose of purchasing or even commissioning the creation of a custom engagement ring, then you narrow down the search quite a bit. When looking. make sure your chosen jeweller has the required experince to make your ring (and your experience) every things you want like our featured expert this month: Linghams Jewellers Melbourne who have over 35 years of experience in the custom design and manufacture of all types of jewellery, but particularly engagement rings.

You want to get a feel for how each of them work and find one that is a fit for you personally – especially in the case of engagement rings. An engagement ring is a highly personal piece of jewellery, that hopefully you will have for ever. It needs to be perfect.
If you are looking to buy diamond jewellery, you need to be extremely careful. You need to ensure you know what you are buying and that it has the correct certifications, as not all certifications are equal. Again, you need to shop around the different jewellers (specifically looking for ones that specialise in diamonds) and get a feel for who you are dealing with. Ask how their diamonds are certified. Ask where they are certified and also check on the certifying company and body. You can spend tens of thousands of dollars or more on diamonds so you can not be too careful.
