Why buy second hand men’s jewellery?
Second hand jewellery can sometimes get overlooked. But, there are many reasons why someone may choose to buy second hand men’s jewellery. Of course it’s cheaper, but it can also be a good investment, and more sustainable.
Here’s a rundown of our top reasons why you should buy second hand men’s jewellery:
It’s more sustainable
If you buy second hand men’s jewellery, this is of course a more ethical option than buying new. If you’re looking to reduce your carbon footprint, buying pre-loved is the way to go.
It’s important that jewellery buyers adopt more of these attitudes. If we limit the production of new jewellery then we can better protect our precious natural resources.
It’s in fashion
Just because something is second hand, doesn’t mean it can’t be fashionable!
In fact, buying vintage/ second hand mens jewellery has become a big trend recently. Think about it- if you want to make a statement it’s hard to do so if someone else can purchase the exact same jewellery from the same place you did!
With vintage jewellery the fashion possibilities are endless too! A simple, vintage gold chain necklace or bracelet can go with pretty much any look.
If you buy second hand men’s jewellery, you could save a lot of money
New jewellery can be pretty pricey these days! So, if you’re looking to save a bit of cash, second hand is your best bet.
Yes, over time jewellery may lose its ‘retail value’. But retail value is only a small aspect which completes a jewellery’s worth.
So, if you buy second hand men’s jewellery you can get a really valuable piece of jewellery for a lot less than its original price- simply because it’s not brand new.
You could snag a good investment piece
There are certain jewellery statement pieces, like Rolex watches for example which can be considered timeless.
Meaning they’ll always be in fashion, sought after and popular.
The value of a second hand watch you purchase could even increase while it’s in your possession. Many collectors are solely vintage collectors and have no interest in jewellry that’s brand new.
So, if you’re lucky enough to find a pre-loved Rolex for a good price, it’s definitely worth buying- as you might just have a gem for the future.
