    A beloved piece of fine jewellery is the ultimate forever piece and requires a little TLC to keep it looking good as new. The good news?

  • Golden Opportunity: Sustainability, Investment and the Modern Fashionista

    But what is the price and value, tangibly? Fine jewellery is a wearable investment. Gold is a known commodity, and will appreciate in value over time. Investors will encourage owning solid gold as part of a diversified long term investment portfolio. Gold is seen as a hedge against inflation and a store of value through ups and downs of the economy. And these investors are not only talking about buying shares in gold mining companies - they’re talking about physical gold. Coins, bullion, or at True, we recommend a gorgeous piece to wear. Enjoy it now, and in the future when it’s worth significantly more and may be a nice addition to your retirement vacation fund.
