I’m still new here in Taichung and I don’t know where to buy a silver ring as a gift for my girlfriend. I went to the malls and all I can see are luxury brands for jewelry. I don’t have much money so I can only buy a silver ring. Preferably around 2,000 to 3,000 NTD only since I need two pieces, one for me and one for my girlfriend. Thank you!
I have bought from 925.tw before. They have locations in Taichung. I don’t know how much has changed in the years, but check it out!
Pandora sells cheap rings
Thank you for the suggestion. I was wondering what name brand jewelry store sells something a bit cheap. I’ll look into Pandora. I hope other name brands would be mentioned here.
I’ll try vising their Feng Chia branch once I go to the night market. Thanks!
There are a lot of options here. Thanks!
Don’t go for brand if you are buying cheap and want silver. There used to be a few shops that sold silver jewelry. You want most of that 3,000 spent on the metal not the designer name. I remember being asked to remove one of my silver rings about 20 years ago at a night club in Taiwan by the door staff.
Oh I see. Would you suggest any reputable local Taiwanese jewelry store? So that I know what I’ll be getting would be genuine.
The one I used to go to was a silver smith near to Ding Hsi station. I think he’s closed now.
How about an online flea market.
The rings should have a stamp on the and be 929 or a bit less. The problem with rings is that it has to fit ! You can see if it’s real silver , get a magnet, it should be very magnetic. Polish it if second hand and if no dirty mark on the cloth then it’s not silver unless new and polished.
However, yes a department store will be a better guarantee but of course more expensive.
Or a real Silver Smith
