Stop by today to see what a designer jewelry store can do for you.
Our friendly and knowledgeable staff can show you the extensive collection of fine jewelry from engagement rings to South Sea Pearls. We continue the same service that awarded us the Small Business of the Year by the Chapel Hill Carrboro Chamber of Commerce in 2002 and Best Jewelry Store by readers of the Chapel Hill News in 2005.
We give you the knowledge that will help you determine the best deals as well as peace of mind being aware you have what you paid for. Most jewelry sold today is not 100% gold (not even “solid gold” pieces). Pure gold is extremely soft and malleable; therefore, it is alloyed with other metals for strength and durability.
Gold rings and other gold jewelry can range in color. The differing colors stem from the various metals used as alloys. These metals include silver, copper, nickel, and zinc, making the color of the gold range from white, rose even to a green gold. The higher karatage of the gold jewelry will keep a deeper and richer color, but karatage corresponds with price.
Get a Good and Complete Description
When you purchase a piece of fine jewelry, you need to have the jeweler write out a complete description on your sales receipt. Diamonds should have carat weight, color grade, clarity grade, size, and dimensions should be included. For colored gems, get an exact description of their color characteristics, as well as dimensions and carat weight. Importantly, get full disclosure of any synthetic or treated stones.
For over the last five decades, we have provided all of Orange County jewelry needs.
