3 Reasons Why Vintage Jewellery Makes A Good Investment

by Olivia J. Freelance Writer and Researcher

Vintage jewellery is becoming an increasingly popular investment route, for many different reasons. It has a unique quality that you simply can’t find in modern jewellery which is a major point of attraction for investors and customers. There is low market competition, it accrues value well and it is extremely high quality. All these components make vintage jewellery a fantastic investment. 


Low Market Competition


There is a very strong market for vintage jewellery, yet the competition is quite low as the pieces are so rare. As there is high demand for rare pieces, you will never struggle to sell high quality and beautiful jewellery. When investing in vintage jewellery, make sure to look for rare pieces in a niche area, such as vintage engagement rings


Rare gemstones and unique eras are both great areas to focus on as an investor, for example, art deco emerald rings, as the demand is unlikely to ever decrease! 


Accrues Value


Like a fine wine, vintage jewellery accrues value as it gets older. With the exception of very poor quality jewellery, vintage jewellery will continue to make money year after year. As time goes on, more industries are turning to mass production, meaning the handcrafted pieces of vintage jewellery are far rarer. 


Additionally, many gemstones are now created in laboratories which are created in a matter of days, meaning the demand for authentic gemstones is increasingly high. People want the real deal and are willing to pay a lot of money for it, so you know that you won’t lose money long term. 


Fantastic Quality


Vintage jewellery has commonly been passed down generations so it is generally very well cared for, meaning the pieces circulating on the market are of fantastic quality. Additionally, as mentioned previously, rather than being mass-produced, vintage jewellery was handcrafted by experts. 


A lot more time was put into carefully cutting gemstones, perfecting settings and using fantastic quality metals. That kind of quality is mostly unparalleled today, and people are willing to pay great amounts of money for that. 





Final Thoughts


There are so many benefits to investing in vintage jewellery, making it a fantastic option for many people. Just make sure that you buy from a certified jeweller and have a second opinion, as there are quite a few fakes circulating, so spending the extra money to get it right is worth it!
