“Pre-Owned Jewelry”…the Newest Trend

When people think about second hand jewelry, they frequently use the words “Estate Jewelry” to describe what is considered to be older collectible Jewelry. It is common to also include “Vintage” and “Antique” Jewelry in this category.  Often, these terms are used to describe Jewelry that is more than fifty years old.

Pre-Owned Jewelry, on the other hand is a recent term used to describe second hand jewelry that is modern and up-to-date in style.  Stores that specialize in selling Pre-Owned Jewelry have carefully inspected and restored each jewelry item to its original “like-new” condition.  A Pre-Owned Jewelry item that is in excellent condition is virtually indistinguishable from its brand new counter part.

Big Names at Beautiful Prices

At leading Pre-Owned Jewelry stores throughout the country, customers have learned that they can save money, while not having to compromise style and quality.  Rather than buying brand new Jewelry and paying full retail prices, people are aware that they can shop more wisely by purchasing the same jewelry as a Pre-Owned item.  Diamond, gold, platinum and sterling jewelry available in the Pre-Owned marketplace includes contemporary designs by Tiffany, David Yurman, Charriol and other well known manufacturers.

Buying and Owning Pre-Owned Jewelry Makes Good Sense…

Everyone can appreciate the great value in re-purposing and re-using items.  We have always found it acceptable to purchase previously owned homes and automobiles.
Pawn Shops routinely sell pre-owned merchandise and have made their way into the public view on national television.  They are bargain havens for shoppers from all walks of life.  Second hand designer clothing stores are now found on the fashionable streets of Beverly Hills, and shopping for used furniture and musical instruments is becoming increasingly popular.

As Good as New, For Less

At last, Pre-Owned Jewelry has joined the growing list of previously owned products that people can purchase and enjoy.  Savvy shoppers of all ages can now pay wholesale prices and consistently save between 50% and 80% by buying Pre-Owned Jewelry that is currently in fashion and may be only several months “old”.   Although Antique, Estate and Vintage Jewelry items remain forever popular, it is the newer and trendier styles of Pre-Owned Jewelry that are now capturing the eyes and hearts of the smart shopper.
