Investing in Signed Jewelry

By   /   August 10, 2013  /   No Comments

Signed jewelry is a stamp of approval from the maker that says “I stand by this work, and am proud to put my name on it.”  Should you ever need to pawn or sell your jewelry, signed goods will always carry a heavy premium.  When you bring a signed piece to New York Loan Company, a GIA certified gemologist will first look for a hallmark to confirm the authenticity of the piece.  There are several things to check in order to verify that your signed jewelry is not an imitation.  Gemologists look at whether or not the hallmark matches the period, if the gold is the correct karat for that specific jewelry house, whether the diamond and/or colored stones are the expected quality and at the signature itself.  “Our staff has years of training and experience in the evaluation of luxury jewelry, including the skill to identify signed goods,” says Jordan Tabach-Bank, CEO of New York Loan Company. “Whether you are purchasing signed jewelry from our showroom, or brining in your own jewelry for a collateral loan, a signed piece ensures that your jewelry will hold its value for years to come.”
