Mistakes to Avoid When Buying Native American Jewelry Bracelets

by Jonshon Matthew Consultant

The jewelry industry has, for a long time, been marred by transparency issues. Many unsuspecting buyers and consumers have suffered in the hands of unscrupulous jewelry dealers who dupe them into buying counterfeit pieces. Since there are new ways of duping buyers at every corner, there one should familiarize themselves with the industry and the mistakes to avoid.

If you have never been a victim of unscrupulous traders’ duping, it does not mean you are safe. It is, therefore, important for everyone to know how they can avoid counterfeiting issues when buying Native American jewelry bracelets, rings, necklaces, or earrings, among others.

Exorbitant and unrealistic charges

Original jewelry designers have already finished the important work of making the Native American earrings, rings, or necklaces that you choose. Therefore, it is not the business of the dealer or other sellers to charge you the artists’ fees when buying the items. If your dealer slaps you with unrealistic or suspicious charges, you should look for a better dealer and save your money.

Not confirming the purity of jewelry items

Whether you are buying rings for your wedding day, bracelets for making a fashion statement or turquoise necklaces as gifts, confirming their purity will be crucial. Each piece is designed with telltale signs that can tell if they are genuine and pure or not. If you cannot test the purity using recommended devices or by fire, ask for the help of a jewelry authenticator.

Dealer lures you to clean your jewelry

Original jewelry pieces do not need cleaning for you to ascertain their purity or originality. If you talk to a jeweler and they suggest that you should clean your jewelry, that should be a clear indication that they are not well-intentioned. However, if you must have them cleaned, be sure to take their weight prior to and after cleaning to ensure that the cleaning process does not take any particles from your pieces.

Not asking for professional help

People may avoid asking for help, while some do not know that they need it. Talking to an authenticator beforehand would be a good idea. The experts can help identify original pieces.

The right research is also necessary when buying jewelry. You should endeavor to do due diligence, too, to avoid unscrupulous traders. Better yet, check out different ones before you settle for the most promising one.
