You should be buying jewellery for two reasons. Firstly, because you love it. Secondly, because it’s an investment. Jewellery has historically been a medium of currency. It’s ability to mark status, wealth and respectability has not diminished. Instead, the financial and sentimental values of jewellery are both increasing.
Jewellery is valuable in more ways than one. Yes, it makes for a financially viable heirloom for future generations, but handmade jewellery especially is incredibly meaningful. Each piece has its own imperfections, and this is what makes it so so perfect.
Since the financial crash of 2008, investors have flocked to the jewellery market because of its financial reliability. Here are our top picks of luxury handmade jewellery that you should be investing in for life.
