How can you complain about bad jewelry deals? The Jewelers Vigilance Committee and local Better Business Bureau are two groups that can help with complaints against jewelry dealers. Each may intervene on your behalf, though both suggest trying to work things out with the retailer first. The BBB said it received 1,810 complaints nationwide in 1992, the latest year for which data is available. Of those, 85% were resolved.

An improved economy, repeal of the luxury tax and new marketing options, such as home-shopping television, are behind the turnaround, which began a year ago. "I think the confidence in wearing jewelry is coming back," said Simon Teakle, who heads the U.S. jewelry division of Christie's auction house, where 1993 sales rose 25% over the previous year.
