Jewelry lovers often begin with fashion pieces before investing in fine jewelry becomes a logical next step. Fine jewelry is important for our collections because it does all the things great jewelry does—makes us feel special, gives us confidence, and makes statements—but it also lasts, which means dollar for dollar, it’s going to give the best value for your money. But where to start?
With earrings. Classic earrings—hoops, studs, etc.— tend to stay classic forever, so buying an expensive pair won’t feel as risky. (While there are earrings that reflect the current runway fads, those aren’t what you want for your first fine jewelry purchase.) More than that, earrings also have an anything-goes flexibility, which means you’ll wear them a lot. Browsing pawn shops in South Florida is the perfect way to start shopping, because you’ll find a wide range of styles and price points that might treat your wallet kinder than retail.
When you’re choosing fine jewelry, the first rule: absolutely love what you buy. You wouldn’t buy an ugly painting to put on your wall because somebody told you it was valuable, so don’t buy jewelry you don’t like just as an investment. Jewelry is meant to be worn.
If you have questions about where to begin, we at National Pawn and Jewelry, are happy to answer them. Buying your first piece of fine jewelry is a big step, and we’re here to help. Next week, we’ll get into a little more detail about selecting fine jewelry for your collection.
