What’s It Worth (to you)?

May 5, 2010

At what point is your collection just a return on investment? As I’ve mentioned before, a lot of people suggest that the only reason to collect is to gain more money, that makes very little sense to me, you may as well be talking to me in Mongolian. But, I could see a point that even in the darkest moments of my life when the jewellery may have to be offloaded for some horrible crisis (though I’d sooner lose a limb than a piece of jewellery).

What’s your threshold? Are these pieces transient or is your collection like your best friend? Comment below!

    My threshold is a very serious need. I had to sell a piece of my collection four years ago and it still hurts! I have always said if I ran across that piece again I would buy it back.

  2. Oh Jane, you did the unthinkable and sold a piece! Good lord, upon refection on the question, I’m sure I’d sooner have a very well-adorned cardboard box to live out of than put a proper roof over my head. And eating is overrated as well…

    Well, I’m just kidding, of course, loved ones come first (or so they may think!), but don’t be disheartened about your loss, the ring seen here:

    Has a very wild and wonderful story attached to it that involves 150 years of separation and a beautiful reunion. If a piece has to go, I think it will always find its way home. Look for that post in a future update!
