Spring is almost here and it’s the perfect time to clean out your jewelry box to make room for new pieces you’ll collect throughout the year. However, what should you do with your old gold jewelry?
1. Gift it. Whether you have a friend that has been eyeing a certain pair of earrings or a relative that has always wanted Grandma’s necklace, gifting your jewelry is a cost-effective but sentimental option.
2. Store it. If a piece has significant sentimental value, buy protective jewelry bags and store the item in a safe place. Hold on to the jewelry so that you can pass the piece on to your younger sister or daughter some day.
3. Resell it. “Work with a brick-and-mortar business staffed by people with a graduate gemology degree…and longtime experience,” InStyle magazine reports. “If the amount you’re offered seems low, seek out a second opinion from another jeweler.”There’s been so much talk about colorful engagement rings these days with celebs such as Jessica Simpson and Kate Middleton encouraging this trend. Glamour Magazine picked up on how women are opening up to have a non-traditional white diamond ring. They featured their favorite 8 engagement rings featuring pink or red stones and 4 of those were from Ice.com. Also, Glamour pointed out that all the rings they chose are under $500. Who said engagement rings need to cost a fortune?
