It’s inevitable that as you grow older, your tastes and preferences change and some of your jewellery may not see as much love and attention as it once did.
Unlike clothes or household nick-nacks however, jewellery isn’t something you can just give away easily! These items are often tied up with memories and moments, which is why you’ve held onto them for so long in the first place.
Here are a three things to do with those jewellery items!
Keep it as an heirloom piece
If the item is a gorgeous piece that you simply can’t imagine ever saying goodbye to, consider keeping it as an heirloom piece to pass on to a loved one.
For example, this classic Claude Bernard watch could be the perfect piece to give to a son on his 21st birthday, with instructions for it to be passed on in future, too.
Have it remade
In some cases, you may still love the sparkle in that ruby necklace just as much as the day you got it - but no longer fancy the style. If that sounds like you, consider having the piece remade into something that you do love and will wear regularly.
Talk to the professional jewellers at Hennings about giving New Life to your old jewellery items, so they can take the parts and turn them into a new gem you will cherish.
Sell it - and buy something new
If keeping it as an heirloom piece and reworking it doesn’t appeal, ask yourself if you really want to hold onto it after all.
Bring it in for an evaluation for an idea of how much it might be worth. Should you sell it, you can always use those funds to buy yourself something new and exciting, such as this eye-catching pair of white gold twist hoop earrings!
