About Me

The Perfect Pendant

I absolutely adore wearing pendants. A beautiful pendant can instantly add the wow factor to any type of outfit. My collection includes diamond, sapphire, ruby, purple amethyst, green amethyst, blue topaz, and garnet pendants. I like classically shaped pendants such as heart ones. My favorite pendant is the heart shaped diamond one my husband presented me with on our memorable honeymoon. Whenever I want to add sparkle to an outfit, I wear this stunning piece of jewelry. On this blog, I hope you will discover the amazing benefits of owning a variety of different types and sizes of pendants. Enjoy!

Antique Jewelry: What Should You Do With Yours?

by Natalie Fields

You may have a lot of antique jewelry, but you might not know what to do with all of it. Luckily, there are many ways you can make the most of your antique jewelry investment, so use this guide to help you learn what to do with yours. For any pieces that you need to have appraised, seek antique jewelry services.

Sell collector pieces

If you need to liquidate some of your antique jewelry pieces, speak to an antique jewelry services company to learn which ones are best for selling due to their growth in value, their rare appeal, or other factors. You can sell your collectible antique jewelry to your antique jewelry services company or you can sell your antique jewelry online or on your local social media platforms.

Donate historical pieces

If any of your antique jewelry items hold historical value or can be traced to a particular person or event, you can consider donating them to a museum or other facility where these items can be treasured for what they represent. Your donation can make your antique jewelry appreciated on a larger scale and can allow you to make the most of the piece of history you have.

Repurpose broken pieces

Are any of your antique jewelry pieces broken or missing some parts? If so, you can have your antique jewelry repurposed into something new. You can have an old ring turned into a necklace pendant or turn a pair of earrings into a beautiful ring. When you have your antique jewelry repurposed, you not only make the broken jewelry useful again, you modernize pieces you may not wear otherwise, allowing you to get more use out of the things you have.

It's important to note that if you won't wear your repurposed antique jewelry, don't repair the pieces. Instead, consider selling broken antique jewelry for scrap so you can make some money. You may even be able to trade in your antique jewelry at a local jewelry store so you can get more out of your pieces and have some money to put towards modern pieces you will wear.

The longer you hold onto the antique jewelry items you have, the more value they may garner over time. It's in your best interest to speak to an antique jewelry services company to see what you should do with the collection you have. This way, you can get the most out of your antique jewelry, whether you regularly wear your jewelry or not. For more information, contact an antique jewelry service.
