How to Invest in Antique, Vintage, or Modern Jewelry
As Antique Jewelry is 'Really' based on the 'Collectability' and Style of an item, it is hard for clients to appreciate the 'Craft' involved in Handmade work, as they only see the Gold value or Diamond Value fluctuate over the years.
If Gold goes up or the older something gets, the value increases, right?
No. Not always. It depends...
Antiques and Collectables are a 'subjective' thing too. Supply and Demand plays an important part in the ways we Invest.
Good quality is always going to be good quality.
Just because something is 'OLD' doesn't make it worth a lot of money. A hundred year old bucket, is still an old bucket - right? Unless it has 'Historical' significance, of course.
Take these for example:
Antique Stickpins in Gold or Silver.
Do they have all the right qualifications. Maybe? They are made of precious metal, may be adorned with gemstones and could be stamped and dated to be more than one hundred years old.
But are they 'Valuable' - 'Collectable' - Are they worth Investing in?
To some people yes, but in general terms they have NOT been the great Antique Investment we would wish for.
There are exceptions to this of course. Certain Stickpins can be very expensive, but the general, run-of-the-mill stuff we see everyday are so common, so profuse, they have hardly shifted in price over many years.
In fact, some have gone backwards, especially since gold dropped from its peak at over $800 per ounce, to the current $420's per ounce (approximate).
It could be argued then, that Stickpins 'SHOULD' be collected, as they are currently undervalued. An Antique Bargain and there is some truth in this.
Our advice has always been to buy what you personally like. Get the very best examples of it, in the very best quality, and hopefully, wear it and enjoy it. It's that simple.
An Antique dealer can Invest in Jewelry because they are 'on the pulse' of what's happening in the world, know what their clients want and can get it for them. They invest Time and Effort but pay lots of incidental costs the general public cannot do.
Why? In the majority of cases, because they love their jobs.
But there are NO Dealers who can devote all their time just to one style or type of Antique Collectable and know as much as the avid amateur collector. They don't have the time.
But know what - YOU DO!
Invest then into something which appeals to you. Become your OWN expert. You will certainly get Bargains that way.
Over the years (remember Antiques are a Time Share Commodity) you will come out on top. Promise...
If you are going into the Buying and Selling (aka Investing) Antique Jewelry, doesn't it make sense you enjoy it too?
You might want to start with - heck, maybe... Stickpins!
