The term fine jewellery is bandied around so much these days that the true meaning of the term fine jewellery has been lost a little. Fine jewellery is, as the name suggest, jewellery that is of a superior quality or fine. It is handmade using the best materials and is often either bespoke or made in limited numbers.
If you have someone special in your life fine jewellery makes the perfect gift to spoil them with and demonstrate how much you love them. Likewise if you have a special birthday or occasion you want to mark with a gift, well made, good quality, unique jewellery makes the ideal gift.
Fine Jewellery Is an Investment
With the rise in the price of gold and other precious metals you could also look at fine jewellery as an investment. The same is true of many precious stones, especially diamonds, which have also soared in value. Obviously, no one wants to sell a special gift, but if you find yourself in a financially tight spot you can at least pawn jewellery.
The other great thing about good quality jewellery is that it stays in good condition for decades. If you want to you can leave your jewellery for the next generation. Some families even break their fine jewellery down into new pieces. For example a bracelet can make a pair of earrings and some of the stones could be used in a brooch. If your stones or the metal is worn doing this is far more difficult to do successfully, so fine jewellery is a better investment.
Fine jewellery is always in demand, so if you should have to sell it at any stage you will always get a good price.
Taking Care of Fine Jewellery
The first thing to do is to get your jewellery valued and fully insured. The photos will help you to prove any insurance claim, but more importantly, will ensure that you can get a replica made if necessary. Your jewellery will last even longer if you have it cleaned regularly by a good jeweller.
