Breaking the Code for Gifting Preowned Jewelry



Unlike many other items, jewelry is one of the foremost examples of a gift that will still be appreciated and cherished if it is pre-owned (perhaps even more so than if it is new). Below are a few of the reasons that gently used pre-owned designer jewelry from Court & Covet should have a place on your holiday shopping list.

  • First of all, jewelry connoisseurs know that all of the most renowned and sought-after jewelry brands (Tiffany, Van Cleef & Arpels, Cartier, and BVLGARI, to name just a few) have distinctive styles that correspond to particular eras in the brand’s history. Indeed, any given piece from these prominent brands is sure to feature dazzling materials, meticulous top-tier craftsmanship, and a certain magnificent aura that is more than the sum of its parts.
  • If the person you are shopping for has a specific stylistic preference or is especially fond of a particular collection from a brand, it is usually difficult to find (or afford) a contemporary, brand-new piece that will fit well with their tastes. When chosen well, pre-owned jewelry made by one of the master jewelers ends up demonstrating that the gift was thoughtfully chosen for a specific person, with their style and personality and individual preferences in mind. A pre-owned piece from a collection that the recipient is known to love and admire feels like a meaningful choice rather than a generic, one-size-fits-all gift.
  • Presentation matters, especially on a gift-giving occasion. That is why it’s important to shop somewhere like Court & Covet which offers, authenticated, and highly sought-after pieces from the world’s premier jewelers.
  • Each time we send a piece to a new or existing client, one of our jewelry experts thoroughly cleans it one last time, so we can guarantee that it will look its absolute best when the recipient first sees it.
"We don’t just think that pre-owned is as good as new—we actually believe that it is better."
When it comes to giving jewelry as a gift, we don’t just think that pre-owned is as good as new—we actually believe that it is better. Getting designer quality for significantly less than the brand itself can sell it to you for, allows for getting something twice as nice.
