It can often be a sad event when you find some old jewellery that looks dated and old, but otherwise would have looked amazing if it was new. Many people give up on old pieces of jewellery they find in a vintage shop or even their own collection. Despite this, however, there is no need to worry as you do not have to go down this route and there are some things that you can do in order revitalise even the oldest piece of jewellery in your collection.
Getting It Professionally Cleaned
Sometimes old Jewellery just looks the way it does because of the fact that it has accumulated dirt over the years and has some grime that cannot be shifted that easily. If you have tried to clean your jewellery yourself, but have had no luck it could be down to the fact that you are not using the right kind of cleaning formula. Sometimes, however, even when you are using the right cleaning formula, you might not have any luck. This does not mean you need to give up on this particular piece of jewellery, however.
Luckily, there are companies out there that will professionally clean your jewellery for you at a small cost. You can find the nearest company who offers this kind of service by doing a quick search on your computer. If the piece of jewellery is expensive and precious to you, it may be a good idea to get it insured before you send it off to such a company just in case it gets damaged.
Use it to Create New Jewellery
If you do not really like this piece of jewellery, but really don’t want to sell it then you could take it apart or melt it down to create some new jewellery. This is a great cost effective way to create new jewellery using what you already have. For example, you could create a ring out of an old necklace or a new ring out of an old ring. What you can do will depend on the size of the jewellery and whether it can even go through this process, as well as your jeweller.
Get it engraved
A great way to revitalise some old jewellery that has not been worn in a while and still looks really clean is to get it engraved. Engraving old jewellery is a great way to update old pieces and make them look modern. It also allows you to personalise old pieces with your very own personal style.
Engraving does not need to be limited to old jewellery, however, and you can use this for new jewellery you have that you would like to personalise so that it looks even cooler. Some companies will offer you information in terms of what they will engrave. For example, Laser Cutworks has a view the materials that we cut page, which will allows you to determine whether or not your jewellery meets their standards for what they will accept and whether or not they can help with your needs.
