Experts to prevent jewellery consumption investment traps

The picture shows the "Sapphire" guarantee purchased by Ms. Mo.

Trap one:

Ten thousand yuan "sapphire" was originally blue agate

Lack of professional knowledge, over-reliance on tourist destinations

Not long ago, Ms. Mo took the “sapphire” bought from Taiwan when she traveled to the city’s jewelry testing center. She wanted to see if her “sapphire” bought by 17,000 yuan was worth the price. A test, Ms. Mo repented, the original "sapphire" is actually a blue agate, not worth tens of thousands. "Blue agate is also chalcedony, its value is not high, after testing it is a low-priced mosaic finished product." Sun Dongmei told reporters.

Coincidentally, another citizen who recently sent a test to cultivate an emerald product, after testing, found that this is a synthetic emerald, and this product has a GIA international jewelry identification certificate. "The so-called cultivation of emerald is the natural emerald that has been cut. In fact, the goods submitted for inspection are not natural at all, although the certificate has been marked, but the description of the whole English is difficult for ordinary consumers to understand." The tester told reporters.

In addition, there is a chain labeled 18K gold, which was found to be rusted by the public for a period of time. The test was copper-nickel alloy.

Reminder: Sun Dongmei believes that because consumers' ability to distinguish between true and false jewellery products is not high, it is easy to be deceived, so you can't blindly believe that the jewelry products purchased at the tourist destination should be purchased after fully understanding. And if some inlaid jewelry is set with silver or copper-nickel alloy, there is no doubt that the price of jewelry itself is not expensive.

Trap two:

Manufacturers issue "guarantee" non-certificate

Request a formal channel certificate from the merchant

In many cases of inspection, Sun Dongmei told reporters that there are quite a few counterfeit jewelry certificates.

There are diamonds purchased by consumers from Taiwan. The diamond level marked on the certificate is completely inconsistent with the actual situation. The virtual standard is different by two levels. It is understood that in general, for every level, the price will differ by 20-25%. Therefore, some fake certificates frequently appear in tourist attractions. The above-mentioned "Sapphire" test certificate, in fact, is a guarantee issued by the manufacturer. It only indicates the introduction of the sapphire and the name and quantity of the product. There is no certification from any professional organization.

Reminder: Jewelry Appraisal Certificate is a certificate of publicity issued on the true and false nature of precious metals, rare gemstones or jewellery products, and is implemented by professional institutions and professionals who meet the qualification requirements. Consumers should obtain a certificate from a formal channel from the merchant, and do not trust the certificate issued by the manufacturer.

â–  Experts suggest that jewelry consumption has been globally homogenized and local purchases are relatively more secure

Sun Dongmei said that people choose the right purchase channel is the premise, but one thing needs to be clearly recognized that jewelry consumption has been homogenized globally, and jewelry of all countries is circulating around the world. It is not a scarce product that cannot be bought at home. "From the perspective of many inspections, the jewelry purchased in the place of origin may not be worth the money." Sun Dongmei said that at present, most of the domestic tourist attractions have deceptive behaviors in jewelry products, and even some scenic spots even the basic jewelry and jade identification certificate. No, shoddy, fake is really a common phenomenon in many tourist destinations, so it is more secure to buy in our local area.
