There are so many options available today when it comes to jewellery. And it really depends on what style of jewellery you are looking for to what type of jewellers may have what you need. There are many different Melbourne jewellers to choose from, each with its own niche and particular speciality. So, it can be extremely beneficial to shop around and learn more about the different types of jewellers to find the best match for your needs. Custom design jewellers Highly sought-after Melbourne jewellers are those that offer custom designs. Custom jewellers usually have a master jeweller on-site who can provide a range of personalised services and creative expertise to ensure you end up with a magnificent creation. Additionally, custom jewellers offer the opportunity to design your own piece to your exact specifications, using high-quality, complementary materials crafted with the precision of a master jeweller. So, you have total control and creative freedom over your ideal piece of jewellery. Independent artisan jewellers You may have to search a little harder to find independent artisan Melbourne jewellers, perhaps in a pop-up store or down a Melbourne laneway. However, it is well worth the investment of your time. Often owned by the jeweller themselves, these stores offer truly one-of-a-kind pieces that you will not find anywhere else. Sometimes quirky and always creative, artisan jewellers craft highly personalised and unique jewellery that will make a statement. eCommerce jewellers Online jewellers offer a convenient way to shop. With no restriction on location, shopping for jewellery online can open up a whole world of possibility when it comes to range and selection. This is a wonderfully accessible way to shop. Especially if you already know your ring size or what type of metals/stones will suit you best. However, it can pose some issues should your purchase turn out to be the wrong fit or not what you expected. If you prefer to ‘try before you buy’ you may find that many high-quality Melbourne jewellers offer their pieces online. This is a huge bonus, as it allows you to not only peruse their range from the convenience of your home. But it also provides you with the opportunity to visit the store and try on your chosen piece prior to purchasing. Retail chain jewellers Chain store jewellers, or retail chains, are usually located in easily accessible, high traffic areas such as malls and shopping centres. They often have multiple locations offering similar products across each store. This is especially useful if you are in the market for a more generic, cost-effective piece that does not necessarily have to be unique or long-wearing. Whilst you will often find cheaper and frequently discounted prices on offer, your options for customisation are limited. Retail chains rely on quantity and can’t compete with the personalised services of custom Melbourne jewellers. Catanach’s Jewellers – number one in Melbourne jewellers!
