Jewelry Factory Visit
It is no secret that most women love jewellery and gold. Human fascination for jewellery and gold goes beyond realms and borders. Gold and jewellery purchases for women generally mean one thing: looking beautiful, glam and classy. Buying gold and jewellery serves dual purposes; not only it is an investment but also it is a great fashion accessory. It is a known fact that women love to dress up and wear gold and jewellery. Be it birthday parties or weddings, anniversaries or get togethers, our eyes get to see a myriad of gold and jewellery on display in such occasions.
The mere mention of this precious metal is enough to catch our attention, attention which distracts us from everything else around. However, this distraction shall turn into a nightmare. In this rush to purchase gold and jewellery, it is common to make mistakes, but remembering a few simple steps could ensure that one gets the best item for their money.
Know the Purity, The purity of gold is denoted in karats, with 24 karat gold being 99,9% pure and 22 karat gold being 92% pure. Every karat gold is equivalent to 4,2% pure gold, which in essence means that 14 and 18 karat contains only 58,33% and 75% pure gold respectively. 24 karat gold is not suited to make jewellery, which is why jewellers use either 14, 18 or 22 karat gold. Purchasing gold jewellery without checking its purity is a wrong decision and it always pays to check purity before parting with your hard earned money. Hallmark is an indication of purity of gold and it is advisable to purchase hallmarked jewellery, as these pieces are tested by competent agencies.
Craftsmanship, A making charge is associated with every piece of gold and jewellery which is essentially the labour charge involved in creating it. Craftsmanship is a reflection of current gold rates and one could be fleeced into paying higher making charges than necessary. Insisting on fixed making charges could make gold purchases cheaper and would definitely be the smarter way to go about it. For instance, compared to Europe, Unites States and Middle East, gold and jewellery prices are much lower in Turkey thanks to lower workmanship charges.
Man-made vs Machine-made, In this age of mass production, it is common to come across jewellery which is machine made. Making charges on machine made artefacts are lower than charges on man-made artefacts, making such mass produced ornaments cheaper. Discussing the origin of a particular piece could save a buyer some money.
Check the Weight, Most gold and jewellery in Turkey are sold by weight, with heavier pieces costing more. Precious stones like diamond and emerald are often added to gold jewellery, making them heavier in the process. Jewellers weigh a piece in its entirety, which means that one might end up paying for gold which is not actually there and it is imperative to keep this in mind while purchasing studded jewellery.
Gold and Jewellery Factory, Turkey has millions of jewellery stores, small and big, catering to its population as well as tourists who are aspired to buy gold and jewellery from Turkey. Purchasing gold and jewellery from small stores could be so risky as they might pass of impure gold as pure gold or could sell stolen gold artefacts. It pays to go to a reputable jewellery factory to purchase gold and jewellery as there is a guarantee about such purchases. In addition to that, you should buy it from a factory in order to get the best price as well as to see all the possible colors and designs. People generally tend to buy it from Grand Bazaar but lo and behold, sellers in Grand Bazaar gets all their gold and jewellery from the factory and they add their own revenue on top of it and then sell it to the customers. Plus, rents in Grand Bazaar are too expensive and somehow they have to reflect it into their prices. These people are sharks and you can easily get bamboozled unless you are informed. Additionally, shops in Grand Bazaar are too small which means that they can only exhibit a small variety of gold and jewellery unlike factories.
