Members of both sexes wear jewelry every day. Jewelry represents many different things to many different people. Jewelry shows that a woman is engaged, it adds flair and luster to weddings, and it celebrates anniversaries. For many people, jewelry is not only something to wear; it is also a monetary investment.
Some people are satisfied to or forced by a budget to purchase mass-produced jewelry. Mass-produce jewelry is more affordable, but it is also less unique.
Other more fortunate people can afford to spend more money on jewelry and can purchase items that were designed by professionals and/or artists.
These professionals are people who have established a reputation in the marketplace for quality product. They are usually recognized by a logo and trademark that are very distinctive.
When you buy from a designer, you know that you are investing in high quality products that are in a class of their own and guaranteed to be worth the money that you pay for.
Buying designer jewelry can also be an investment, because these items usually increase in value over the years. Not that you would want to sell your jewelry, but designer jewelry would probably get your money back, plus some if you were to decide to sell it at a later date.
You will also find that designer jewelry is probably also the item that would become an heirloom within the family. This is usually not the case with mass-produced jewelry.
With designer jewelry, you also get a guarantee of high quality. This guarantee is carried by the trademark of the company that is on every piece of jewelry that they manufacture.
Not only does the trademark signify a guarantee of quality, it also represents the authenticity of the jewelry and the accompanying value.
Designer jewelry also comes with a certificate of all its authenticity. This certificate describes the grades of the gemstones, its present value, and any distinguishing features of the jewelry item.
Not only does this certificate give you the peace of mind that you’ve purchased and authentic designer jewelry item, it is also required by the insurance companies before they will insure the item.
Designer houses also often give you the option of upgrading your jewelry. For example, if you bought an engagement ring, and after a few years you want to trade it in for another ring, you would normally be able to do that with a reputable designer house.
