First, the best way to avoid the commons scams is to know what they are. Here is our complete list of the 20 most common scams still used in most stores, including many of the mall chainstores.

Many scams can still be found in “fine” jewelry stores across the U.S., mainly because it has always been hard for consumers to educate themselves before they buy… until Diamond Helpers was created.

Second, I wrote a complete guide to avoiding the scams here: 13 basic precautions that will help to arm you against almost every scam we know.

Try to apply all 13 precautions as you shop around. If you leave anything undone, you might end up spending $5,000 on a diamond that turns out to be a $5 cubic zirconia. This is exactly what happened to my father in the ’80s before I entered the diamond industry and got my training.

More about that story in Why I Do This.
