Remember that even the most beautiful diamond will look bad in a poor setting. There may be times when you do not know a reliable jeweler, when you may be tempted to buy because of jewelry you see in a store, window, or online store, or when you want to buy jewelry away from home. Do not take everyone's word that a jewelry is solid gold, pure gold, or genuine gold, or that is sterling silver or any other kind of silver.
