Timeless Heirlooms are Forever
In the age of social media, there's always a new trend, always a new thing to buy. It's easy to click 'add to cart' on that jewelry purchase that's under $100 - instant gratification and a fun new look for the next few months. But consider the idea of making fewer, higher quality purchases of fine jewelry instead. Heirloom quality pieces last for a lifetime and are often handed down through generations. Fine jewelry can also be repaired over and over again and rebuilt or redesigned down the road. When you make a purchase of fine jewelry, you are making a decision to embrace sustainability and the lower consumption of items that will be tossed or put in the Goodwill bag a year from now when they break, tarnish, or lose their appeal. Gold is traded as a commodity and has increased dramatically over the last decade so you are also making a financial investment that holds or increases value.
So if you're going to take the plunge into starting or growing your fine jewelry collection, why is it important to buy classic and timeless pieces?
Durability: Timeless jewelry designs are often classic and understated, making them less likely to go out of fashion. This means that they can be worn and enjoyed for many years, even decades, without looking outdated. Our tennis bracelets and necklaces are the perfect example of a timeless design. These diamond necklaces and bracelets have been around for centuries and never go out of style.
Sentimental value: Timeless jewelry often holds sentimental value, as it can be passed down from generation to generation. These pieces become family heirlooms that are cherished and remembered for years to come. We often redesign pieces for clients using stones from handed down rings and brooches.
Investment value: Heirloom jewelry is often higher quality and made with precious metals and gems, making it a valuable investment. The value of these pieces often increases over time, making them a smart financial choice.
Emotional connection: Heirloom jewelry often has an emotional connection, as it is given to mark special occasions or to symbolize meaningful relationships. These pieces become a part of one's personal story and hold significant emotional value. I can tell you from personal experience that this is true. I have purchased pieces for myself when I've had babies, lost someone, celebrated an anniversary and booked a giant contract. For me, each of those pieces represents a moment in my life that I want to remember.
Overall, heirloom jewelry is a valuable investment that can be cherished for years to come. It is often made with the highest quality materials and is designed to last, making it a meaningful and special addition to any jewelry collection.
