If you love jewelry, the time will come when you realize you’re going to have to invest in some fine jewelry for your collection. Fine jewelry makes us feel special, can lend confidence, make a statement and, most importantly, it lasts. While we recognize that inexpensive pieces can give you more fashion for your buck, there’s no better time than now to start building a serious collection. So where to begin?
We suggest starting with a pair of earrings. Why? Because earring classics tend to be the most stable. Fashion jewelry usually reflects the current runway trends that elevate your look to the current fad; that’s the kind of jewelry you don’t want to spend a lot of money on because it can change so quickly. And certain earrings fall into this category, but there are many more classic style earrings—studs, hoops, etc.—that really never fall from fashion favor. More than any other piece of jewelry, they also seem to maintain an anything-goes appeal.
Because this is your first investment in fine jewelry, start with a very classic style that will afford you a lot of wear and make you feel as though you’ve gotten your money’s worth. Browsing pawn shops in Vienna, VA is a great way to start because they often have older pieces that are still in style and might be easier on your pocketbook.
If you have questions about where to begin, we at Vienna Jewelry on Maple Ave. are happy to answer them. Buying your first piece of fine jewelry is a big step, and we’re here to help.
