What to do With Inherited Jewelry
If you’re wondering what to do with inherited jewelry, you’ve come to the right place! The easy answer? A lot. You have several options. To figure out what those are, let’s ask ourselves a few questions, shall we?
What’s it mean to you?
Is the jewelry you’ve inherited sentimental?
If the answer is, “yes”, we have some follow-up questions: Can you use it? If so, keep it and do so! Perhaps the sentimental jewelry you’ve inherited is damaged. You could see if there’s an opportunity to fix it when you take it to a jewelry repair shop.
Let’s say your inherited jewelry is damaged beyond repair, and you can’t wear it. If it means something to you, you don’t have to let it go. Pass it down for posterity. It can become a family heirloom!
What’s the value?
Sometimes learning about your jewelry’s worth can change things. You may have a treasure in your midst! If you have the original paperwork (which will help determine its authenticity and characteristics), you’ll be able to find out the worth pretty easily by taking it to a jewelry appraiser.
You can still get clues to jewelry value without paperwork. Learn how to inspect your jewelry for value clues, determine if its real or fake, and more in our previous blog post: How Much is My Jewelry Worth?
