Deals on diamond, gold and silver jewelry at retailers like Macy’s, JCPenney, Kohl’s, Sears and Amazon will be plentiful on Black Friday.
Thousands of jewelry pieces will be discounted this weekend, but it’s important to do research and shop prudently. Many consumers fall victim to deals that are indeed too good to be true.
Gold jewelry is sometimes advertised as “gold-filled” or “gold-overlay.” These terms signify jewelry that is not solid gold, but is most likely silver with gold plating.
And it’s best to be cautious with diamonds. Make sure the diamond seller can define the piece’s cut, clarity, color and carat. Oftentimes, a deal that seems unbeatable signifies a diamond of poor quality.
That said, here are the top deals on select pieces at some top retailers. Visit each store’s website to view the full list of jewelry.
