Tips for finding a reputable jeweler, quality stones, settings and designs

March 4, 2015 (La Mesa)—When it comes time to choose your engagement and wedding rings, start by checking Yelp to find a reputable jeweler.
Call and ask if they have a goldsmith on staff. Ask if they make their own original jewelry. (Do you really want one of 10,000 made in Bangkok?) Clerks at a store that only sell jewelry, not design the products, may have limited knowledge of how they are made. If possible, purchase American-made jewelry.
