Reasons to Buy Pre-Owned Jewelry
People often think of pre-owned jewelry as just a way to save money. However, we know that there are many powerful reasons why buying pre-owned jewelry is beneficial. From saving the environment to preserving history, buying a special piece of pre-owned jewelry could mean investing in a piece that will last you and your family a lifetime. Here are a few amazing reasons why you should consider purchasing pre-owned jewelry with S. A. Spirit Jewelry Design and Resale Boutique.
Better pricing and value: Buying pre-owned jewelry will save you money because of its discounted price from the original time of purchase. And pre-owned pieces can even be up to 20-40% less than a similar or identical piece of jewelry. And who doesn't like saving money?
Owning a part of history: One of the greatest advantages to buying pre-owned jewelry is the opportunity to own a small part of history. This is something that you cannot get when you buy a brand new piece of jewelry. Often, older pieces were hand-crafted using knowledge and techniques that don't exist anymore and can't be reproduced by anyone today!
Each piece of pre-owned jewelry comes with its own story and personal history. Who knows who could have worn your piece of jewelry in the past? Maybe it was a first lady, or an actress, or famous socialite. The possibilities are endless and part of the fun of purchasing any previously owned piece is the thrill of its history.
Environmentally friendly: There are many environmental reasons why buying previously owned jewelry is better for our planet. There is less of a demand to produce new jewelry when buyers are more interested in purchasing pre-owned pieces.
Buying pre-owned jewelry means less mining and air pollution, and it preserves valuable resources like fuel, forests, and water. It helps to save wildlife habitats and keeps waste out of our water. There is also less hazardous material in our environment that is a byproduct of manufacturing new pieces of jewelry.
As good as new: We all love new things, but second-hand can be just as good. There is something special and sentimental about receiving both a brand new piece of jewelry and a previously owned piece as a gift.
As long as your pre-owned jewelry comes with an assurance of structural integrity and craftsmanship, it can be just as good as new and most people, including your family and friends, cannot tell the difference between a new piece and a pre-owned piece of jewelry when it is being worn.
Develop your personal style: A great benefit of buying pre-owned jewelry is the opportunity to develop your own personal style. Each vintage era has its own unique characteristics and styles of jewelry. By wearing jewelry from your favorite era, you can make a statement.
You also can find pieces of jewelry that are so unique that no one else will have them. Not only do they make a statement on their own, but they are conversation starters and can help compliment your unique sense of style.
Preserving the past for future generations: If people did not purchase pre-owned jewelry, certain eras of jewelry would be forgotten. Buying pre-owned jewelry helps to keep the past alive for future generations so that they can also enjoy each era of vintage jewelry.
It's important to keep the history of these remarkable pieces alive. And pre-owned pieces can easily be passed along amongst generations once they enter your family.
