    Tips On Buying Pre-Owned Cartier Jewellery

    Buying pre-loved designer jewellery has become increasingly popular, with people being actively conscious of their impact on the earth as well as looking for the best savings for those ‘must-have’ pieces. However, you may wonder why you would want a second-hand item if you could just purchase a new piece? 


    Firstly, you may be able to get your hands on a rare piece that may not be in production any longer. This is often the case with antique jewellery from a design house, with a lot of history in the style of stone cutting and designs of pieces over the years or limited edition pieces from signed jewellery houses. The idea of special moments that your jewellery has seen can also be extremely romantic. Perhaps your bracelet was a gift of true love? Or was worn to a magnificent ball at some part of its journey?


    Often buying a new item of signed jewellery it can be expensive, then depreciate over time. Therefore, buying second hand can often be better value for your money, meaning you may be able to buy a piece of jewellery made up of a higher value Diamonds and metal if you purchase second-hand piece, than if you were to purchase a piece of the same financial amount on a brand new item, making incredible savings on classic and timeless recognised jewellery pieces.


    Finally, buying a pre-loved signed jewellery item is also the sustainable alternative to buying a new piece from one of the design houses. At Hatton Jewels we are conscious of our impact on the planet and therefore encourage buying second-hand jewellery. Creating a piece of fine jewellery is a lovely thing to do, but if the item you are after already exists, such as items from renowned jewellery houses such as Cartier, Tiffany or Bulgari, buying pre-owned is an ideal way to help contribute to a more sustainable and eco-friendly way of enjoying beautiful items of jewellery.


    If the item is pre-owned piece it has usually stood the test of time. This is an indication that the materials that have been used are of a good quality, but it is always worth clarifying the condition of the item you are looking at purchasing with the retailer. 


    It is important to note there a few things to consider when buying second-hand signed items; Jewellery made by the leading design houses are so sought after that unfortunately, there are fakes prevalent on the market, so, to make sure you know exactly what you are buying, make sure you shop at a legitimate jeweller, using online reviews can be a great way to ensure the company is reputable. Researching the market can really helpful as well, as this will allow you to get a feel for the correct price point you will be looking at and what styles are out there for you.
