  2. Got Antique Jewelry Worth Something? Here’s How to Sell It!

    Got Antique Jewelry Worth Something? Here’s How to Sell It!

     

    Perhaps you have inherited or obtained antique or period jewelry that doesn’t suit your style, and hasn’t seen the light of day, taking up space in your jewelry box.  

     

    It may be worth more than you think, certainly worth your time assessing its value and how you might sell it, giving it new life with a collector who would love it.

     

    It’s important to understand some of the jargon and what it means when discussing “antique,” “estate,” “vintage,” and “period” jewelry. In the secondhand market estate jewelry means pre-owned, whether its five years old or 105. Jewelry historian Anna M. Miller, author of the book, “The Buyer’s Guide to Affordable Antique

    Outsourcing always makes good business sense for companies both big and small. Generally speaking, outsourcing improves efficiency, reduces costs, and allows companies to focus on their core business.

    Not only does contracting out certain tasks save time and money, resulting in lower overhead and staff labor costs, it also allows businesses to tap high-caliber talent for project-specific work.

    Outsourcing empowers jewelers to benefit from the latest technology by leveraging the equipment and expertise of trusted production partners who do these tasks regularly, without jewelers having

    Test Recycled Diamonds, Offer As Design Option & Extension Of The Estate Case

     

    Over the past couple of years fashion-minded shoppers have placed an even bigger emphasis on sustainability, with fine jewelry topping their wish lists. In particular, recycled diamonds are becoming increasingly important for jewelers, as the global diamond-mining yield continues to diminish, reports Women’s Wear Daily (WWD) in August 2021.

    The popularity of recycled diamonds has increased dramatically since the pandemic, with many engagement ring shoppers asking for recycled stones. Jay Moncada, owner of Perpetuum Jewels, told WWD that before the pandemic four out of 10 engagement ring shoppers inquired about recycled diamonds, and now that number is closer to seven.

    Jeweler Jean Prounis of Prounis Jewelry told WWD that 100% o

  8. Pre-Owned Jewelry Market is Booming,  Jewelers Should Get Their Share 

    Pre-Owned Jewelry Market is Booming,  Jewelers Should Get Their Share 

     

    Luxury goods are made to last, and the trend for purchasing pre-owned fine jewelry and watches has been on the rise.

    The trend in the secondary market is growing for many reasons, among them an increase in online sales, changing consumer preferences, and rising concern about the sustainability of luxury goods, particularly among younger consumers, finds the Boston Consulting Group (BCG). These trends were well underway before COVID-19 hit, but the pandemic, and the economic slowdown it created, has accelerated them.

    Published September 2020, BCG’s report on the hard luxury market shows that the market for secondhand hard luxury items, primarily watches and pre-owned/estate jewelry, is worth over $22 billion worldwide and growing a

  9. Good As New, Overcoming Recycled Diamonds’ Inferiority Complex

    Good As New, Overcoming Recycled Diamonds’ Inferiority Complex

     

    Diamond is the hardest mineral on the planet, so it’s no wonder it’s regarded as the ideal product for recycling. Because of its strength and durability, diamond can be used more than once without trace-of-wear.

    Recycled diamonds actually offer the perfect story of sustainability — averting the need to mine or grow in a lab a new diamond product. Recycled diamonds also deliver on natural diamond’s “forever” promise, by maintaining their value as a precious, finite gemstone, and as an enduring symbol of love.

    Yet, the perception exists that if a product is recycled/reclaimed/repurposed it may not be of superior quality. 

    Recycled diamonds, while not a new concept, is a category that many jewelers, designers and small man

  10. Melee on Demand | The Alt-Bridal Trend

    With the rise of millennials came the rise of alternative and quirky bridal trends, jewelry included. Alternative bridal designs offer a certain uniqueness that is appealing to young consumers. These brides no longer want a 2 carat engagement ring. In fact, some don’t want a diamond at all! Wearing unique settings, diamond bands, or gemstone rings has become an option for those brides that either want to stand out from their peers or those that would rather spend that money elsewhere, like on a honeymoon or a home.

    In a time where being socially conscious and politically aware has become trendy, today’s brides have also begun to take a company’s sustainability and social responsibility practices into consideration when choosing a ring. We now see brands like Brilliant Earth, Do Amore, Bario-Neal, Stone & Strand, and so many more creating sustainable jewelry, and thanks to social media it has never been easier for these brands to target mille
