MANILA, Philippines - The wonderful thing about jewelry is that there’s so much of it, in every color, carat, size and style. The not-so-great thing about it is that when there’s so much of it, it can get overwhelming.

So, how do you even choose the gem that’s right for you? What if you don’t have the budget for costly diamonds, but still wish to sport a little glamour in pale yellow-green, deep purple or bright blue gemstones?

You can begin your very own adventure in gemstones by visiting the jewelry section of Metro Department Store, where you will come upon all sorts of fantastic gems you can imagine are available.

Get to know the delicately soft pink sheen of a rose quartz. Discover the fiery glare of a deep crimson carnelian. Metro has price rates to suit every budget range including easy payment schemes. This means it will be a lot lighter on your wallet for you to own aventurines, pearls, garnets or crystal quartz, to name but a few of the many kinds of stones available at this amazing store. Highly knowledgeable sales ladies will be more than glad to show you the myriad of choices to put you at ease and help you find jewelry options that fit your particular criteria.

Enjoy browsing at the gold section with the most variety of choice gold merchandise. The 14k and 18k Italian gold come in unique designs and fine craftsmanship. The most popular and highly saleable Saudi gold is more affordably priced and higher in appraisal value. The 24k HongKong gold is one of the finest, with 99.9 percent gold content. Standard 18k Chinese gold is normally discounted at five percent on all regular items. The most affordable lines are the 14k and 12k Singapore gold, which are commercial and discounted at 10 percent on all regular items.

Just as popular is the 92.5 sterling silver Vicenza line that comes with a lifetime free cleaning service. Also available are stainless jewelry and colored stones with silver settings. And then there are the freshwater pearls that are a fraction of the cost of the more expensive South Sea yet still set off an easy, refined look.

The high-end area of the store showcases a girl’s best friend, diamonds, in brilliant 14k and 18k gold settings, as well as South Sea pearls, semi-precious colored stones, and the pricey Burmese jade, all encrusted in lovely, magnificent diamonds.

Metro has branches in Market! Market! at The Fort, at the Ayala Center in Cebu, Mandaue, Colon, Legazpi, and Lucena, and the soon-to-open MarQuee Mall in Angeles City.
