Why is designer jewelry valuable?
There are several aspects that make up the price of jewelry.
- The first is the materials from which the jewelry is made, for example a piece made from platinum or white gold will increase the price over an item made from sterling silver.
- The second aspect is the intricacy of the design and the craftsmanship that has gone into the making of the piece.
- The third factor is the designer house name and how established or well reputed the brand is.
- The fourth factor is the rarity of the piece and any historical significance of the jewelry piece.
