When buying, say, a diamond & platinum ring, you may go by the showroom look and expect it to look just as beautiful after you got back home. Needless to say, there is no guarantee of this happening, which makes it doubly important that you watch the finer details more closely before finalizing a purchase. Lack of sophistication is usually to blame; whenever you get a piece that simply sparkles from many different angles, there is the chance of ignoring its design altogether. This can happen to anyone. One moment you are at the diamond jewelry store, deciding on a particularly flashy stone-studded ring, and the next thing you know, you are standing in front of the bedroom mirror wondering why it looks so cheap under a different light.
A sophisticated design gives the eye something to fall back on when it tires of all that dazzle. Ensuring you have something like that in place can bring down the chances of people perceiving your ring as cheap.
