Your guide to shop­ping for fine jew­elry – from iden­ti­fy­ing flat­ter­ing di­a­mond cuts to choos­ing the per­fect pearls.

Shop­ping for fine jew­elry is a rite of pas­sage for any fash­ion lover. How­ever, with such a dizzy­ing se­lec­tion of beau­ti­ful pieces in lo­cal jew­elry shops, be­gin­ning the brows­ing process can feel a bit daunt­ing. The best way to get started while shop­ping for fine jew­elry is to think about the way you shop for cloth­ing: are you a trend­set­ter, or do you pre­fer clas­sic styles? Do you like to layer luxe pieces or wear one at­ten­tion-grab­bing state­ment item? When you de­ter­mine your style pro­file – ad­ven­tur­ous, clas­sic, trendy, or min­i­mal­ist – it will be easy to rule out pieces as you pe­ruse a jew­elry show­case.
