What makes jewellery a good long term investment? 

Many popular long term investments are unreliable and constantly changing, but gold is reliable. Gold rarely changes in value and, at times in hardship, gold has even been known to increase.

This makes jewellery one of the best long term investments there is. 

What to do before buying a gold jewellery investment piece 

  1. Buy from an authentic seller 

The most important step is to make sure that you’re purchasing your gold investment piece from an authentic and reliable seller. Buying inauthentic pieces of jewellery is a common mistake for beginners that are new to investing and what most junior investors are at fault for. Look at online reviews and make sure that there’s no doubt your seller is authentic. 

  1. Get professionals involved 

It is important that you know how much the jewellery is worth. At this point, if you’re unsure of how much the piece of jewellery is really worth, it’s time to get a professional appraisal. Once you know its value, you are able to assess how much you should be paying for the piece so you buy it at a fair price. 

  1. Make sure you like what you’re buying 

Lastly, you need to make sure that you like the jewellery you’re buying. You want to invest in jewellery that you know you like or else it won’t be worthwhile for you. Remember that a significant part of investing in jewellery is having fun and that comes with purchasing jewellery you’ll want to wear. When it’s a piece you like, you’ll be glad you invested in it.
