Guide to Buying Jewelry
One of the most popular gifts to buy for Valentine's Day is jewelry. If you do plan to purchase jewelry for that special someone, check out the jewelry buying tips from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). This page includes important questions you should ask when you're at the store and what to watch for in online stores.
If you have a complaint about the jewelry you purchased, the FTC recommends trying to resolve it with the seller first. If you're not satisfied with the results, you can contact the FTC, the Better Business Bureau, the Attorney General's office, or the Jewelers Vigilance Committee, a non-profit organization supporting ethical practice in the jewelry business.
