What to do with heavy gold earrings or heavy gold jewellery that I don’t wear?
Does this question strike a chord with you? Over 85% of women prefer not to wear their heavy (and usually outdated) jewelry given a chance, and only do so as there is a strong sentiment attached with the jewelry. This sentiment is even stronger if it is heirloom jewelry.
Wearing heavy earrings for long periods of time results in stretching of the ear, elongation of the hole piercing and loads of pain. Sound’s familiar…. Lot of women have earrings that were bought long time ago or received as a wedding gift, an anniversary, a special occasion, a memory of a loved one… these are only a few such precious memories and sentiments that most jewelry carry. Each piece is a story by itself! So, it is no wonder, that most women prefer keeping their jewelry in their lockers, tucked away for decades at times, even if they don’t wish to wear them!
Then of course, there is the ‘wearability’ of the jewelry! Fashion trends change every 2-3 years, and most trends quickly make the earlier trend almost obsolete. And let’s also not forget the clothing style and the age factor! Imagine wearing your bridal jewelry a decade later!
This brings us back to my question. What is heavier? The heavy jewelry or the sentiment around it?
If you took the sentiment away, then your jewelry becomes just a physical asset! And then you are free to sell it, pawn it, take a loan against it, or just dispose of it for a new set, whenever you wished. Now, this may sound practical, but its easier said than done.
Giving away an outdated jewelry only for its metal or stone value is not a practical idea to start with, especially with unpredictable gold prices. Instead, redesigning the same jewelry into a wearable, modern and lightweight ornaments of your choice would be a great way to reinforce the sentiment of the very same jewelry, and also makes great financial sense as well!
