Just Amazing, is it your grandmother jewel? Oh no, this is the one which I purchased last week.
Yes, this is an old piece of jewel that I found with my jeweller isn’t it great.
Many unique pieces of the jewel are sometimes just scrapped for the value of metal without getting into its history this happens when people have not been wearing and storing it away in a safe.
Every jewel has a story behind its purchase or handed down generations. A little detailing will help one understand its significance but alas, the younger generation is known to wear lightweights, trendy and those adaptable with the latest fashion or clothing and disposing of all that are not up to their liking. This has resulted in many of the antique or estate jewellery finding their way to most jewellery showrooms.
Are there people who still love to own preloved jewellery?
Of course! a lot of people keep looking out for such collections. As jewellery enthusiasts, they love and are excited at the craftsmen’s ship of antique jewellery and consider the continuing history of the bygone era. They take a snapshot into a glamorous lost world. An urge to copycat the lifestyle of the earlier generations.
I shall share what you need to look for before you place your eyes on such preloved jewellery.
The fundamental lookout is for its appeal. Certain jewels are so complex with multi-dimensions which are the thought process and enthusiasm of the craftsman who tends to create signature pieces that define his achievements and every piece that is crafted certainly enhance the appeal and wearability of the wearer which he has already visualized. While he also crafted jewellery that was according with their culture and belief’s and is associated with their linage. However, it is ultimately the master craftsman who creates such detailing to produce pieces that not only suits the individual but also for the generation to come.
A few designs have continued to remain common across cultures, regions, and people. They are still fond of adorning them even today.
But you could find replicas of certain designs. These jewel designs are catalogued as traditional designs. This style of jewellery is a must for one’s jewellery wardrobe. It is in fact, these exclusive pieces also look great when worn, a reminder of what was loved by the previous generations. Wearing such jewellery uplifts one spirit and brings enormous pleasure. these treasured pieces will hopefully see their generations as they come.
Unfortunately, modern technology is still far behind to visualize or understand the art of jewellery and till such time handcrafted jewellery cannot be replicated.
The second factor to look for is the quality of metal, craftsmen ship or gems that are studded in these Antique, estate or pre-loved jewellery and evaluated to its rarity, age, and condition and guidance of how to take care. Ask questions, there is nothing called silly!
While at C. Krishniah Chetty Group of Jewellers, you would be hard-pressed to find a better expert opinion, every piece of the jewel sold is discernibly evaluated to offer the best value that can span generation.
Besides, certain exclusive jewels carry in-house reports that give in-depth detailing with the photographed jewel image and describes the jewel including its lineage where available. With clear estimates based on their uniqueness, period and gems studded of similar pieces that act as a guide.
