In challenging times with fluctuations in currencies and markets, people often look for a safe investment. Investing money in legacy jewellery can be that safe investment. An increasing number of people are putting their money in gold, platinum and silver, all three metals have a solid track record and have reached record prices over the past years.
Gold especially has progressively been seen as a rock-solid investment on the global world market. When it comes to jewellery, pieces which stand the test of time are usually the best items to invest in. Even if they are small, high-quality pieces that have a long lasting value rather than a short-lived high fashion appeal are a safe option. Fine legacy jewellery is a special way to give a beautiful gift as it will also become a future investment and one that can be handed down through the generations.
As a result of the experience we have gained in this industry and the expertise we have acquired we can safely recommend investing in gold, quality colourless or coloured diamonds as well as the ‘Big Three’ sapphires, emeralds and rubies. An important consideration for serious investors is the practicality of investing in jewellery. Jewellery is easy to manage due to its size; an investor can easily carry thousands or even millions of pounds worth in a small pouch.
A crucial factor about investing in jewellery is that the value of fine jewellery is not directly linked to the stock market, this makes it an ideal financial commodity that holds its value in times of recession and increases in value during inflation.
Furthermore, the material which fine jewellery is made of, such as diamonds, precious gemstones, gold, and platinum can be reworked and remodeled in the future. Investment jewels therefore provide a tangible asset to hold onto in uncertain economic environments as they can not only be remodeled into beautiful new pieces but sold at current market prices.
Gold and diamonds are naturally found resources, however, their supplies are not limitless. The scarcity and price of these valuable commodities mean if bought wisely with the right guidance, will increase in value over time.
