Here’s How

Look for clear photo's! A well photographed picture should give great clear detail.


Look for a descriptive and detailed review! Read the description: a well described item should give you a precise idea of the size, shape, color and so on. Nobody wants to find when they open their much awaited parcel the jewellery is nothing like they thought it would be. All measurements should be accurate to the millimetre! Photos are  great way to see the jewellery up close but until you read the measurements and compare them on a ruler it is often hard to imagine just how big the item is. Compare and understand descriptive details: diameter: how wide an item is accross, length: how long an item is, height: how tall an item is, weight: how much an item weighs in grams, color: the actual real life color as many computer screens do show shades of difference in color, metal: solid gold, sterling silver, rose gold, white gold, gold plated, silver plated, genuine: is it genuine product or an imitation or manmade version.

Shopping for jewellery for friends and all the family is easy when you know size. Always measure with a ribbon or string around the neck/necklace, wrist/bracelet, ankle/anklet for each person you are shopping for as the size can differ a lot. for example: A necklace for a man will generally be 50cms up to 70cms, for a teenager or woman the size will generally be 45cms up to 50cm and for children 40cms up to 50cms.

Only buy jewellery from a qualified jeweller if you want professional good advice and a personal after sales service. A qualified jeweller can manufacture, repair and shorten jewellery using  professional solder. Buying charm bracelets with open jump rings for babies and children just is not safe as babies put everything into their little mouths. All charms should be professionally soldered to your bracelet for a safe and secure fit. For example: all our charms are professionally soldered making them safe and secure and we are very happy to design, manufacture, adjust and resize special requests for baby, child, teenager and adult in every size.

Ask for help if you are not sure about what you are looking at! A good seller will respond to your questions and always be happier to know you are buying what you actually want! It is a Win, Win situation when the customer is very happy with their purchase and will return to buy more jewellery and the seller has fulfilled their desire to sell the product knowing it is exactly what their customer is looking for and will look forward to the customer returning to their store again!

Be sure to use a secure postage option. You want to know the item is insured and will be guaranteed delivery. Be familiar with postage costs so you can see if a seller is reasonable with postage costs. Use the Australia Post postage calculator. A courier service or registered post are the best options for jewellery as there is always delivery proof available from australia post for tracing an item that has not arrived. A good seller will always follow up a missing parcel for you!


Look for a seller who is not afraid to leave your feedback once you have finished and completed your end of the transaction as a buyer. It is a good indication of the integrity of a good seller who will leave the appropriate feedback as each customer has purchased and paid for their item in a timely manner.

Look for a seller who will give you good old fashion service, fine quality jewellery, great value for money and those little extra trimmings like free gift boxes and free gift wrapping, Jewellery for gift giving is gorgeous when presented as we do! We pride ourselves for putting personal sevice back into Shopping online!

Read the feedback associated with a seller, but also read the feedback of the buyer who has left nasty or negative feedback too. The feedback system is a great indication for finding a good seller. Read about your seller: Our My World and Feedback Reviews Read your sellers About Us page. This is a great indication of a professional registered seller who is actively involved in the jewellery industry or someone just selling or reselling jewellery. There is a big difference as registered and professional jewellers are experienced in many aspects of the retail, wholesale, manufacturing and trade jewellery industry.
