MAGNIFICENT POSSESSIONS Grand Opening for TIAS shop, Diamond-Jewelry4ever. Article is newsworthy because of the competitive market for collectible estate jewelry and vintage costume jewelry and where to invest.
Today’s women love the glamour of Hollywood as much as the women in the 40’s and 50’s. Jewelry was glamorous and feminine and, because of the war years, most of the jewelry at that time was gold plated. Today, however, gold is very available and even with prices in the mid $600 per-ounce, it is still affordable to many because of the market competition of fine jewelry. Precious and semi-precious gemstones are still in big demand whether settings are gold or silver. In 2007 vintage designer jewelry continues to demand “gold” prices even though the settings are gold plated or filled and the gemstones, in most cases, paste or colored glass with some of the finer costume pieces showcasing semi-precious gemstones. Here we are fifty plus years later with natural and simulated gemstone jewelry continuing to touch the hearts of collectors whether American or Mexican designs.
My point is simple and direct. With Mexican and Designer Costume Jewelry continuing to be rather pricey, why not diversify and invest in the REAL THING! Give me GOLD, DIAMONDS, SAPPHIRES and leave the paste to others. According to the outrageous Hollywood siren and comedic actress, Mae West, “Too much of a good thing is wonderful.”
Inspired by Mae’s bravado, Diamond-Jewelry4ever (http://www.tias.com/stores/diamondlil) boutique honors these sentiments by a featuring an exciting inventory of fine estate and contemporary jewelry designs in all colors of the rainbow from brilliant white diamonds to multi-colored topaz creations, all magnificent possessions for a lifetime.
