Even if the music scene doesn’t draw you, the art, the culture, the architecture, the natural beauty of the food will! Nashville is one of the most versatile cities in the south, bringing lovers of history, good food, lush landscapes, and murals from all over the world by the droves.
With all this to enjoy, it’s no wonder that many choose to make Nashville the center of where their forever begins, with their special someone. If you’re getting engaged in the Nashville area, Grogan Jewelers is the best place to buy an engagement ring, and here’s why!
A Reputable Jeweler
There are so many options to choose from, especially when it comes to finding things that sparkle and shine. But now that you’ve found the one, how do you make sure that the jeweler you’re choosing to buy an engagement ring from is the right one, too?
Here’s what makes a jeweler shine.
Memberships in professional organizations, like the Jewelers of America, one of the oldest jeweler associations in America. Members of JA receive ongoing education and training, follow a code of ethics, and strive to establish trust and professionalism with every interaction. There are other professional associations that they could hold membership with as well, so don’t be afraid to ask, and do some research on these associations yourself.
Experienced and Certified Staff
Anyone can sell a diamond ring, and all jewelers start somewhere, but when it comes to your engagement ring purchase, experience, passion, and knowledge matter! Make sure you choose a jeweler who has the knowledge, skills, experience, and passion to help you make the perfect purchase. Do they have certifications of training from the Amerian Gem Society or Gemological Institute of America too? These are all good things, and a good jeweler will also assist in educating you as the client as well!.
Good Reputation + Positive Reviews
Just like anyone can sell you a diamond, anyone can put up a storefront or website and call themselves a jewelry store. This is why it pays to do your research by investigating online reviews, asking for referrals, asking for references, and finding out how long they have been serving their customers. Grogan Jewelers has been building lifetime relationships since 1915 (that’s 106 years!) and continues to expand win the hearts (and hands) of more, so don’t be afraid to ask your relatives and friends too! If they were delighted with their ring and their buying experience, you are likely to be too.
Service After The Sale
What’s their return policy? What kind of service do they offer after the sale, and do they have it in writing anywhere? A reputable jeweler usually isn’t just looking for a sale, they are looking to partner with you in a treasured investment that should last for a lifetime (or several more!). This might include appraisals, cleanings, resizing, repairs, and more, so don’t be afraid to ask what THIS relationship is going to look like long-term, too! Grogan Jewelers offers a lifetime warranty and a specialized plan to help you take care of your investment, for life.
