08 Aug Why It’s Better to Buy Used Jewelry
There is a widespread opinion that in order to obtain beautiful and valuable jewelry pieces, we have to pay top dollar. In reality, the situation is quite different.
Here is why buying pre-owned jewelry is on the rise:
- Better value and prices
By rule, used jewelry is cheaper than brand new jewelry. In fact, it can be up to 40-60% cheaper than identical or similar pieces that haven’t been pre-owned. What’s more, the value of used pieces can remain the same over time. So, we could get great value at an even greater price if we decide to purchase pre-owned jewelry.
- A piece of history
With an old, used piece of jewelry, we will own a piece of history, too. That’s something that we cannot have if we buy only brand new jewelry. Plus, many old pieces were hand-crafted, using techniques that no longer exist. That will allow us to have unique and timeless pieces.
- Preserving the environment
Buying pre-owned jewelry isn’t only good for us, it is also good for our planet. When people buy more used jewelry, the demand to produce new one decreases. That, in turn, means less mining and less air pollution, as well as the preservation of forests, water, and fuel.
- Excellent quality
If there is one thing that we can be sure of, it’s that a pre-owned piece of jewelry has withstood the test of time. Pieces that have been previously worn and managed to stay in great condition must be of excellent quality.
On the other hand, with new pieces, even expensive ones, we can never be completely sure that they won’t break soon after we purchase them.
