Wear it Don’t Warehouse it! Redesign Your Unworn Jewelry


There are sad jewelry survey results out there. The average woman has at least five pieces of jewelry she's not wearing. Aggg! This Santa Barbara Jeweler is on a mission to spread the word. Unearth and redesign your unworn jewelry, it's like buried treasure. Let's make it special again!

To inspire you to take a fresh new look at your unworn jewelry I made this little video:

Deep Sea, Err... Jewelry Box Diving

Look in the bottom of your jewelry box and look in your safety deposit box. Pull out the unworn pieces and look at them newly. Show it to your creative jeweler so you can both come up with new ideas to use these pieces.

What's Your Old Jewelry Worth?

Old ring, out of style

What's it Worth if You're Not Going to Wear it?

That diamond ring from Grandma that was appraised for $2,000.00 ten years ago is actually worth zero if you're not using it.

Those diamonds represent her love for you and a remembrance of stories past that should be shared with the next generation. That's its true value.

Don't enshrine (read - store it unworn) the old out of date style for some sense of duty. Redesign your unworn jewelry in your style and wear it!

Jewelry with a Story is More Valuable!

Tell the story of your grandmother to the next generation. When the time comes for the next generation to receive it, it will be a meaningful and beloved piece of jewelry.

Don't forget to tell the next generation that it's perfectly fine for them to redesign your ring in their taste when it comes to them in the future.

What's the Takeaway Message Here?

Jewelry you've been given is about the memories of the people you have loved and the stories of those people. But you have to wear it first! It's OK to redesign your unworn jewelry. Wear it Don't Warehouse it!

Thanks Santa Barbara jeweler, I must dig for more gold that I have not been wearing and turn it into a treasure I can share. That is a most inspirational video you’ve made! It is worth sharing.

You are right, your jewelry is worth nothing if you never wear it, so it is a win/win to redesign the jewelry that you are not wearing.
Thanks for the prompt to go through and update my jewelry.
