Fine jewelry does so much more than help you make a fashion statement. A good quality vintage or designer piece can end up being your everyday talisman, a precious reminder of times gone by, or an investment for the future — if you can ever bear to part with it.
The Luxury Closet’s range of designer fine jewelry includes fashion, vintage, and limited-edition pieces. We have industry experts who authenticate and assess every item to ensure you get the highest quality. If you’re planning to purchase authentic fine jewelry, it is crucial to pick pieces you get the maximum use out of. The following guide and the features of some of our favorite jewelry makers and designers will help you find the right ones.
- Know Your Size — This applies to almost every area of fashion but is sometimes overlooked while choosing jewelry. While buying designs such as rings and bracelets, sizing becomes pivotal, for we want them to wrap our fingers and wrists gracefully.
- Know Your Style — Jewelry that complements your ensemble or your style sense as a whole will be much easier for you to style on a regular basis. Having a little look through your wardrobe before investing is a really good idea.
- Get The Essentials — Just like your make-up bag and your wardrobe, there are staples of jewelry that never seem to go out of style and can be effortlessly styled with any outfit. Prized possessions like pendant necklaces, hoop earrings, and band rings are elegant, understated touches that will impact your aesthetic in the most versatile way.
- Understand Precious Materials — Making informed choices after knowing the meaning of precious metals and stones, which gold to buy, and different types of diamond cuts can be helpful before making an investment from a financial perspective.
