As the saying goes, they make things bigger in Texas, and that applies to diamond jewelry too. Texas cities like Houston and Dallas are rising to prominence in the international diamond scene, and for good reason: These cities offer incredible diamond jewelry values and selection to the discerning buyer.
The first step to understanding the Texas jewelry scene is checking out the website of the Texas Jewelers Association. Started in 1906, the TJA is a statewide organization designed to promote the Texas jewelry industry while ensuring that all jewelry customers in Texas are given fair and reputable service. The TJA helps ensure that all jewelry businesses in Texas adhere to a high code of conduct and ethical business standards. Most reputable Texas jewelers are affiliated with the TJA—make sure to ask and double check.
The best place to purchase Texas jewelry is in a locally-owned boutique, not a national chain brand. Smaller shops are able to provide customized solutions to every jewelry need, and will attend to you and your style and budget preferences with the kind of customer service the larger chain stores just can’t match.
Once you find a few local jewelry shops, look for a few key elements that will help you decide which jeweler is right for you. First, make sure there is a certified Graduate Gemologist (GG) on the premises. These highly trained experts know everything there is to know about diamonds and other gems, and will help you make the right choice. Next, ensure that the diamonds sold by this retailer come with reliable certification from an independent lab like the GIA or AGS. This is especially important when buying Texas engagement rings. Finally, ask the jeweler what kind of services and perks are provided—will the jeweler clean your purchase for free? Does he offer an upgrade policy so you can trade your diamond in for a more valuable one later on?
Luckily for you, Texas jewelers are among the best in the business—offering top-quality products and impeccable service at prices anyone can afford.
