Gold jewellery is the first choice for most of the Indian brides as part of their Indian accessories. Whenever you buy gold jewellery, do not forget to ask for a check on the purity of gold. Most of the jewellers have a purity check machine in the store itself. Always buy your jewellery as well as Indian accessories from a trusted jeweller and ask for proof of authentication so that it doesn’t trouble you if you wish to sell the jewellery in the future. Also, ask for the terms of return, exchange and repairs as well. Always insist on hallmarked jewellery so that you have a certification of purity on the gold bought.
