UNITED KINGDOM / AGILITYPR.NEWS / November 08, 2019 / People buy jewellery for many reasons - as a token of love, as a gift to be treasured, as a fashion item, to add to a collection or to hand down to future generations.
However, it is a misconception that jewellery is always an investment; many factors influence the value of the item and how it performs on the open market. For example, buyers may not always appreciate that when purchasing a piece of jewellery, the full retail price paid in a high street shop includes the necessary profit margin as well as VAT and tax.
