Sentimental attraction is the reason that many pieces of inherited jewellery that have been passed on in the family are safely put away and then forgotten for years. One day they are rediscovered and increasingly its reappearance comes as a welcome surprise. It is back in fashion!
Or maybe it has simply appreciated in value whilst it was not being appreciated tucked away “somewhere safe”. In that case it could be a good time for a reappraisal. What is it worth today? Chelsea-based jewellery expert Ian Towning at Bourbon Hanby Arcade is constantly being asked to advise on just such pieces. He is always happy to help. An initial telephone call will be welcome.
