Bridal jewellery tips

Wedding season has already begun this new year with many leading jewellery brands offering good discounts on bridal jewellery. If you are looking for traditional gold jewellery in Mumbai, Waman Hari Pethe (http://www.wamanharipethejewellers.com/Web/necklace_1.htm) and Tanishq (http://www.tanishq.co.in/tanishq_collections.html) have good collections. Their websites offer a prelude to the bridal jewellery collections but the showrooms have a much larger variety to offer.
Waman Hari Pethe has showrooms in Dadar, Vile Parle and has recently launched a showroom in Goregoan (West). The Goregaon (West) showroom has a limited variety of Kundan jewellery as compared to the Vile Parle(West) showroom, but has a good array of traditional gold earrings, necklaces and bangles.
Tanishq offers a beautiful variety of Kundan jewellery. Now, as beautiful as Kundan jewellery looks, when it comes to value for money, you end up spending a lot for the making charges and the semi-precious stones, Kundan and polki which have little or no return value. So, it is important to purchase Kundan jewellery keeping in mind that the return value is mostly only for the Gold. Also it is better to decide the wedding dress first and then match Kundan jewellery to go with the dress.
Tips for purchasing Gold jewellery:
1. Always make sure that when you are purchasing gold jewellery, each piece of jewellery has the Hallmark of purity on it.
2. Always keep the purchase receipt
3. It is easy to go overboard when buying wedding jewellery, but also think practically. Instead of buying one heavy gold jewellery set, you can easily go for two, which you can wear often to other events.
4. You can always get a good bargain on the making charges. Making charges vary based on the intricacy of the design. Generally making charges vary from 150rs. per gram to upto 300 rs. per gram. But you can bargain on the making charges and ask for a reduction.
