Educational Consults | Alara Jewelry

We firmly believe that an educated customer is our best customer. We love to share our knowledge! We have a full crew of DCA- and GIA-educated gemologists and diamontologists, ready to geek-out with you. 

There are three different types of exploration that are available at no charge to you. These explorations are about learning--not selling or even suggesting. We intend to equip you with the knowledge you need to feel comfortable working with a jewelry professional anywhere on the topics offered.

You may book any of these explorations using our online scheduler. Once you get there, scroll down to select "Exploration and Education."

One-on-One No-Pressure Engagement Ring Discovery

You do this once. We do this every day. Please let us help you learn what you need to know so you can make a solid and informed decision.

A small sampling of the types of questions we are prepared to answer:

• "How do I learn about styles?"

• "Does the ring s/he wants require custom crafting?"

• "Do the rings on her Pinterest page work with our lifestyle?"

• "How is jewelry made? Can you use my gems and metal?"

• "Can you make a reproduction of this old ring?"

• "How do I make it a surprise if I don't know ring size?"

• "Can a ring be made to fit around this family ring?"

• "Can you make a ring using this birthstone from my grandmother?"
