Investing in Jewellery: Designer Jewellery Price Increases & the Best Pieces to Buy Secondhand Now

Cartier love ring on plate

Valentine's day just around the corner and gift-giving on our agenda's, what better time to discuss the designer jewellery inflation. The price of sparkle has seen an all time high in 2023, with prices estimated to have hiked up by a total of 85.72% since 1986. 

Designer Jewellery Brands Price Increases:

1. Tiffany & Co. - 10%
2. Cartier - 8% 
3. Bulgari - 12%
4. Chopard - 15%
5. Van Cleef & Arpels - 9%
6. Harry Winston - 11%
7. Bvlgari - 13%
8. Graff - 14%
9. Mikimoto - 7%
10. David Yurman - 10% 

This trend is due to several factors, including rising production costs, the popularity of luxury fashion brands and the increased demand for exclusive custom pieces. As materials become harder to come by, rare gemstones are becoming increasingly sought after and expensive. Meanwhile, gold and silver prices continue to fluctuate in line with global economic trends. At large, the average market price of designer jewellery has increased by an estimated 200-300 percent since 2010, and according to GlobalData, prices  have risen by an average of 4.7% per year since. This is expected to continue climbing in 2023 and beyond.

But, don't fret! Not only is it sustainable, but sourcing your designer jewellery second hand is a fantastic way to purchase - or gift - your favourite designer brands for only 40-70% of the full retail price.
