What to Look for in a Jeweler

Purchasing luxury jewelry and timepieces is no small event. You want to be certain that the place you entrust your time and money to will be a rewarding investment of both. We have put together a guide to discerning which jewelers, like Exclusively Diamonds, will always provide the highest quality products and customer service.

Positive Community Reputation

One of the easiest and most effective ways to ascertain a jeweler's quality is to assess the reputation they hold in their communities. Exclusively Diamonds is committed to fostering and cultivating trusting, long-lasting relationships with our customers, which has resulted in our shining reputation here in Mankato. Our reviews on sites like Google, The Knot, Yelp, and Wedding Wire reveal our consistent quality and relationship with our cherished customers. Learning about a jeweler’s reputation is essential because it can give great insight into the type of experience you may have there.

Luxurious Jewelry Selection

A jeweler is truly only as good as their jewelry selection. To determine the caliber of the jeweler you are considering, do some research into the brands they offer. Celebrated, recognizable names will help ensure the pieces you may purchase are high quality. At Exclusively Diamonds, we are proud to offer collections from bridal jewelry brands such as Simon G. and A.JAFFE, two of the most reputable names in the industry. Fashion jewelry collections by designers like Roberto Coin and Maria Elizabeth are ever on-trend, much like the timepieces from watchmakers such as Wolf.

Certified Professionals on Staff

A staff that you can trust to care for your pieces in the event that they need to be resized, cleaned, or repaired, as well as provide accurate and plentiful information, is paramount to a well-rounded jewelry store. Institutions like the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and the American Gem Society (AGS) are two by which you can gauge a jeweler’s qualifications. At Exclusively Diamonds, we are proudly AGS certified, meaning you can put your trust in us to provide skilled professional services and valuable information with the utmost consistency.
