Protect Yourself from These Known Jewelry Scams

2
You may not be aware that the month of March is
International Fraud Prevention Awareness month.
There are all different types of fraud and scams
one can be exposed to,

3
sometimes on a daily basis, including emails,
online websites, and even face-to-face
transactions. Even the jewelry industry has its
fair share of scams.

4
Here at Serli Siroan, we enjoy educating people
about these scams, so they can protect themselves
and ensure the jewelry pieces they acquire are
authentic and real.

5
Finding great deals on low-priced gemstones that
say they are certified. To be clear, any
gemstone can be certified, regardless of its
colour, cut, carat weight, and clarity (4Cs).
  • www.serliandsiroan.com

    416-944-3863

6
All the certification means is that a
professional jeweler has examined the gemstone
and certified it based upon the various ranking
factors (4Cs).
  • www.serliandsiroan.com

    416-944-3863

7
To illustrate this point, if you were to line up
five rings that had the same gemstones and a
similar design,

    416-944-3863

8
but different cuts, clarities, carats, and
colours, the first thing you would notice is they
each look slightly different.

9
Online and television shop-at-home jewelry
channels advertising approximate carat
weights. One of the more recent scams to hit the
industry is this one.
  • www.serliandsiroan.com

    416-944-3863

10
It is where the carat weight is approximated to
make the deal sound much better than it truly is.
  • www.serliandsiroan.com

    416-944-3863

11
For instance, the gemstone might be advertised as
being approximately 1 carat. However, what you
end up with is one that is only 0.90 carats, yet
you paid for a 1 carat stone.
  • www.serliandsiroan.com

    416-944-3863

12
Responding to offers to purchase gemstones
directly from distributors. Most gemstone
distributors have specific requirements in order
to source gemstones and diamonds directly from
them.
  • www.serliandsiroan.com

    416-944-3863

13
In many cases, the email offer you received takes
you to a fake website that looks like it is real,
only to entice you to make a purchase.
  • www.serliandsiroan.com

    416-944-3863

14
However, what typically occurs is the person
loses their money, and even ends up having their
bank account emptied if they used a debit card,
or discovers their credit card has been maxed
out.
  • www.serliandsiroan.com

    416-944-3863

15
Trade-in/Trade-up offers that make it appear you
are getting a great deal on a new
piece. Trade-ins are often best left to your
automobile, not jewelry and gemstones.
  • www.serliandsiroan.com

    416-944-3863

16
A much better option, if you are tired of your
current piece, is to have it professionally
transformed into a brand new, custom piece.
  • www.serliandsiroan.com

    416-944-3863

17
Receiving an email saying you won a jewelry
contest. Unless you remember actually entering a
contest to win jewelry, chances are it is a scam,
  • www.serliandsiroan.com

    416-944-3863

18
especially if it states you must call a 1-900
toll line or pay a processing fee to claim your
prize. In many cases, you will never receive your
prize,
  • www.serliandsiroan.com

    416-944-3863

19
but end up with an outrageous telephone bill or
have to deal with fraudulent charges on your
debit or credit card.
  • www.serliandsiroan.com

    416-944-3863

20
Of course, the best way to avoid fraudulent scams
involving jewelry and gemstones is to always shop
at reputable jewelry stores, like here at Serli
Siroan.
