tips on buying a golden ring in Zurich

I will need to buy a golden ring, just white gold 14 or 18k, no stones or other fancy stuff. Thing is that I need to also get in engraved, before July 22nd, so I think I don't have much time to shop around. Can anyone suggest where to look?

Thanks.

Yes, it is that simple. I guess I should have emphasized the fact that I was looking for *suggestions* on which jewellers to check in Zurich

Re: tips on buying a golden ring in Zurich

I can't recommend any jewelers in Zurich, but I can recommend a few tips for buying.

Since you want white gold, be sure to ask if it has been rhodium-plated. This will make the shine last much longer. Make sure you know both the ring size for the finger, and what width of band you want. A woman's band is usually 2-4 mm in width for comfort, whereas a man's is often 6-8 mm.

These two points are very important, as once you have the item engraved it usually cannot be returned. If you're not 100% positive on both the ring size and band width, I recommend getting the ring only, and doing the engraving later once you're certain it's a comfortable fit.

Given how high prices for "luxury items" are in Switzerland, in your shoes I would seriously consider purchasing online or in Germany and having the engraving done here. Happy shopping!
