By: M. Johnson

It doesn't matter whether you're buying gold jewelry for someone else or for yourself - deciding what to buy and where to buy it can be hard. Gold jewelry is a big investment, and the right piece could be cherished for many years, and even handed down to your family members. That means you'll want to make a smart choice, even when buying discount gold jewelry. Here are a few things to remember while shopping.

- Get your discount gold jewelry from someone you trust. When looking for find gold jewelry, even at a lower cost than usual, look for a web site or a local company that specializes in it. Don't try to buy your discount gold jewelry at a store that sells just about everything. Quality will usually be lower, and you might not even be getting the real thing. Specialists can offer individual assistance, and will have a wider selection.

- Be specific. When searching online at sites like google.com, be specific, and check out any company you find before you buy. Sites that are affiliated with a professional trade association are better choices than those with no affiliations or reputation.

- Look for a warranty. Even discount gold jewelry should come with some kind of warranty or guarantee. Check out the sellers return policy, should the jewelry you receive not be that you were expecting, or should it have a manufacturing defect. Some stores give manufacturer's warranties, as well as a return policy.

- Look for a good price, and quality, too. While it's tempting to purchase the discount gold jewelry that's the least cost, you should take a look at what you're really getting, first. For instance, look for a karat or quality mark to tell you if it's real gold, and what percentage of the jewelry is gold. 24K indicates that the jewelry is pure gold. 18K gold is only seventy-five percent, while 14K is fifty-eight percent. 10K gold is actually less than half pure gold, and the rest is an alloy.

-Don't buy too quickly. Be sure to check a number of different pieces before you decide which discount gold jewelry you want to buy. Ask about the karat weight, total weight, and other details, and weight finish and details to decide what you want out of your jewelry.

- Avoid suspicious retailers. If you feel uneasy about your purchase, don't make it. The discount gold jewelry you're thinking about buying might be fake, or even stolen.

- Remember to check the size, whether buying for yourself or others. Also, make sure that the clasp or other fasteners are well made and easy to manipulate. This will increase the chances that your discount gold jewelry will be worn often.
