"Jewelry is jewelry, right? If I can buy a diamond ringfor 50% less at the mall, from TV or online, why should I go to a customjeweler?"

Does this argument sound familiar? If it does, chances areyou know someone who has bought jewelry from one of the above mentioneddiscount sources. Although it seems like a great bargain at first, we believethe purchaser is bound to be disappointed. Here's why...Custom Jewelry

Many retailers that sell jewelry at seemingly incrediblepercentages off have been known to inflate the original price of theirmerchandise to lure you into thinking you're getting a great bargain. Thereality is, you probably ended up paying exactly, or perhaps even more, thanwhat the piece was worth. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.It's also imperative to examine and compare the quality of the merchandisebeing offered by discount retailers. This old adage still applies, "When you buy quality, you only cry once."
