Jewellery can be some of the most special and symbolic items that you own. Each piece has its own sentimental value and meaning, and you treasure it as much as you wear it.
However, sometimes we inherit or find jewellery which we have not chosen to buy. What can we do with these pieces and how can we best enjoy them? There are so many options for you - read on to find out more.
If you inherit a beautiful piece of jewellery, you may want to save it. A quality piece of jewellery deserves to be kept, and you will be able to pass it down as an heirloom.
Even if the piece does not appeal to you personally, it could still be a valuable and beloved piece of jewellery for your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and so on. You can have it looked at by a professional jeweller who can make sure that it is in good condition and worth hanging onto. So keep it somewhere safe and pass it along to the next generation.
Perhaps the most obvious choice you can make when you inherit or find jewellery is to wear it. An attractive and timeless item of jewellery is meant to be worn - so show it off!
There are some things to consider before you begin wearing your new piece. As in the case of creating an heirloom, you will also want to have the jewellery checked over by a professional jeweller before wearing it, so you can be certain that it is all in good order and does not need fixing.
You will also need to have the jewellery cleaned so that it is ready for you to wear for a long time.
Does your piece have sentimental value? If it is something that has been inherited, this is most likely the case. But not all jewellery works for every person. Do you want to wear the jewellery and keep it close to you but are not keen on the style?
There is an option for you that means you won’t have to put it in a drawer and forget about it. Having the jewellery redesigned is a great way to keep the sentimental value of the jewellery while updating it.
You will need to speak with a jeweller who specialises in jewellery redesign, and who can advise you of the results you can expect.
Whatever you choose to do with your inherited or found jewellery, make it special to you so that you can enjoy it for years to come.
