Platinum.

When shopping for jewelry, consider silver or white gold instead of platinum. Platinum is a popular material for jewelry these days, but you can get away with the same look while spending much less if you stick to a similar look in silver or gold. Very few people will be able to tell the difference.

When buying jewelry for others, do your homework first. Find out their favorite colors, preferences between gold, silver, white gold or platinum and ring size. Buy real gold rather than plated. Same for gemstones, it's better to buy more modest pieces with real gold and genuine gemstones. Also make sure you find out the jeweler's return policy.

If you have a light ivory skin tone with darker hair, consider purchasing jewelry in silver, white gold or platinum. The silvery colors look elegant set against an ivory skin tone especially if you have brown or black hair. Make sure to choose darker gemstones such as green, black or deep blue.

Few people realize that the color of their metal jewelry can actually complement certain skin tones. If your complexion is warm, golden, or bronze, you will find that yellow gold earrings, necklaces, and bracelets are your most flattering options. If your skin tone is cool or olive-colored, opt for silver, platinum, or white gold metals.

Make sure you know what to look for when buying platinum jewelry. Platinum needs to be at least 95% pure in order for it to be considered real platinum. If it's lower it is platinum alloy. Also, be aware that platinum can develop a patina, which many people feel gives jewelry a nice antique look. This jewelry also does not wear away and is hypoallergenic.

If you are considering the purchase of jewelry for a loved one you should first determine if they prefer silver, gold or platinum. Just about everyone has preferences when it comes to their jewelry and if you get them gold when they really like silver they may never wear it. That means that you will have wasted a lot of money on a gift that they do not like.

If you are considering a titanium wedding band, remember that it cannot be re-sized and may be a bit more difficult to cut off in an emergency than rings made from precious metals. Titanium rings are less likely to bend or crush under pressure, however, so an accident that would heavily damage a gold or platinum ring may not harm a titanium one.

To the naked eye, there is virtually no difference between platinum and white gold metals. Platinum is priced higher, almost solely by virtue of its scarcity relative to other metals. Silver and white gold, however, are quite comparable to platinum in terms of longevity and durability. You can save a great deal of money by opting for either of these metals over platinum.

Only purchase jewelry from well known retailers. If you are looking to purchase gold, silver or platinum make sure that the retailer has a professional set up and that their products come with a guarantee. Do not purchase from unknown vendors who claim that the jewelry they are selling at a discount price is made from real precious metals or gemstones, they are often imported fakes.

When it comes to quality and price, don't count synthetic gemstones out. These gems, which are created in a lab, appear remarkably similar to the real thing. Take this into consideration as you shop for your next piece of jewelry: Rather than spending exorbitant amounts of money for a natural stone, opt for an affordable synthetic stone. The money saved on the stone can go toward a more intricate or higher-quality metal, such as platinum.

Palladium.

If you love wearing jewelry, but hate the irritation it causes, then you may want to examine the metals in the jewelry. Higher karats of gold are less likely to cause irritation so opt for 14 or 18 karat. You could also try platinum or even palladium as both of these metals are harder and stronger than gold.

While figuring out the best way to buy or sell jewelry was pretty exciting, you should feel better that you know how to do them better. You can now apply your newly acquired knowledge either to buying a new piece for yourself or selling more pieces you have to make more money.
