If you are a collector of antique jewellery you will be aware that there are many places you can invest in new pieces. Whether you prefer shopping online or in shops, you can find beautiful antique pieces anywhere from second hand jewellery shops to market stalls and online dealers. However, if you are serious about investing in genuine antique pieces with value and beauty, it is advised you buy from a dedicated dealer, such as Laurelle Antique Jewellery, as it comes with many benefits.
The main benefit of buying antique jewellery from a dedicated dealer is that you are guaranteed to invest in a piece which is genuine. Dealers who are passionate about what they sell have a reputation to uphold by selling the best products, so they will be there to help you find good quality beautiful pieces at a suitable price. Either through selling online or in a shop, a dedicated dealer will provide you with all the information you need to know about the piece including what the piece is made from and how old it is so you are aware of what you are buying.
Not only will the dealer give you information about the ring itself but they may possibly be able to reveal some of its background. As antique pieces are generally around 50 years old or more, each one has a story to tell and if the dealers sourced it themselves they may know a little or a lot of the story. The fact the each piece tells a story is something which really draws people into buying antique jewellery, so dedicated dealers should make the effort to find out what they can in order for you to take that story away with you and continue it for years to come.
Dealers who are passionate about selling antique jewellery won’t try to make more money from you than they can. A lot of second hand jewellery shops and antique dealers rely on repeat customers and collectors in order to keep their business running, so keeping customers happy is something which is very important to them. With years of experience they have knowledge of how to price each piece according to the materials it is made from, when it was made and the quality of the piece so you can be sure the price is accurate for what you are getting.
If you are new to the world of antique jewellery then visiting a dedicated dealer is a good idea, especially if you are unaware of what to look for. Many sellers will notice when you don’t know what they are talking about and it is easy to make more money from you than necessary, however a dedicated dealer will be there to help and show you what to look for in the future. It is possible to find tips and tricks online to know what to look out for when investing in antique jewellery, however it is far more fun having personal interaction with both the dealer and the piece itself in order to find the perfect piece for you.
