Diamonds are the official birthstone for April. Today we’re going to talk about a very special kind… Estate diamonds! They’re so special, in fact, that we think they’re even better than new ones. If you haven’t heard of estate jewelry before, it’s jewelry for sale that was previously owned by someone else. We’ll share with you five reasons why we think estate diamonds are a great choice.
If you’re concerned about impacting the environment for your wedding, birthday or special occasion, there’s great news - estate diamonds are a 100% eco-friendly purchase! That’s because the resources used to make the piece have already been used. When you purchase an estate diamond, that’s one less diamond that has to be mined today… and the step to a healthier planet tomorrow.
Estate diamonds are a great bargain buy, especially for wedding rings. You can save hundreds of dollars on a hand-cut estate diamond compared to a designer brand simply because the estate diamond is older! Seaside Art Gallery makes it even more affordable with a layaway plan. What could be better than that?
Some people may not fancy the idea of pre-owned diamonds. One common estate jewelry myth says that these jewels may even be cursed! Of course, this is not true. Many estate jewelry diamonds were enjoyed by their owners. You might find a piece with a great story. This gives the piece even more meaning to the wearer, especially for history buffs.
Perhaps one of the greatest benefits to selecting estate jewelry is that the pieces are often better made. You won’t find cheap retail items in a well-curated estate jewelry collection. A careful eye can see that these diamonds are the real deal, with their own unique natural traits.
Does your sweetheart have a taste for vintage styles? It’s much easier finding them in estate jewelry collections. From art-deco to retro to victorian, you’ll find sought-after diamond pieces long out of circulation from today’s jewelry markets. And the best part is, they are often the true in-period style that today’s retail items copy after.
Whether you recently had an April birthday, know someone who does, or are planning a wedding with your special sweetheart, consider choosing estate diamonds. Seaside Art Gallery carries a delightful collection of quality estate jewelry. Who knows, you could find your next treasure today.
