Timeless Jewelry and Watch Pieces to Buy Now and Keep Forever

Gabrielle Brulotte / December 28, 2021

Trends may come and go, but there are some timeless pieces that never seem to go out of style. When you’re looking at a timeless piece to buy now and keep forever, it’s helpful to look back and see what’s stayed trending through the decades, and still stays relevant today. If you take good care of your investment pieces, there’s a good chance you’ll really be able to keep them forever.

Gold Hoop Earrings

Hoops are one of the oldest pieces of jewelry in the world, dating back to 2500 B.C.E. timeless-gold-hoop-earrings-simpleThey go with just about everything and never seem to go out of style. During the 1920s, gold hoops regained popularity amongst popular jazz dancers after the discovery of King Tutankhamun’s tomb in Egypt in 1922, and have stayed a timeless accessory since. Today, the trending hoop earrings are more simple and small than the elaborate hoops worn through in the past. If you’re wanting to invest, we love these hoop earrings–a sparkly take on a classic gold hoop.

How To Keep Them Forever

Because gold is a relatively soft metal, it’s prone to scratches from jewelry made of harder metals and stones. To keep your gold scratch-free, keep it in a soft jewelry bag or in a separate box.

Gold Watches

Gold watches are the epitome of a timeless piece to buy now and keep forever. Through the decades, people of influence such as Andy Warhol, Princess Diana, and Muhamed Ali have chosen the gold watch as their everyday accessory. Though watches worn on wrists weren’t popular until man-wearing-timeless-gold-watchthe mid-1800, they’re not going anywhere. Vintage watches, if you pick the right one, could be the ultimate investment. Back in 1975, the now vintage Rolex 14k Yellow-Gold Daytona retailed for $1,950. Today, you can find that same watch being sold for anywhere from $120,000-$180,000.

How To Keep Them Forever

Use a microfiber glass wipe to get the dust off of your watch before storing it in ideally a temperature-controlled safe, and have your watch serviced regularly to keep it working properly whether you’re storing it or wearing it.

Chain Necklace

Since Gabrielle Chanel deemed chains classy enough to be layered with her infamous pearl strings, they’ve been worn around the necks of both men and women throughout the decades, and are more popular thantimeless-gold-chain-necklace-to-keep-forever ever. A chain necklace is a piece that’s become trendy again over the past few years with both men and women. Whether you choose to dress your chain up with a stone or just keep it simple, they’re a great investment piece to accessories an outfit.

How To Keep Them Forever

Avoid getting your chains tangled with other necklaces by hanging on a hook, or store in its own individual cloth bag to avoid tangles.

Pearls

Is there anything more timeless than pearls? Though the pearl pieces that are more popular now are a more simple take on the string of pearls your grandma or mom might have worn, we’re deeming them one of the most timeless pieces of all. Used oftentimes for the days to remember like weddings, the way they’re being worn today–simply and minimally–are great to dress up everyday outfits. Today, pearls are worn more simply in the form of drop women-wearing-simple-timeless-pearl-earringsearrings or studs. Although pearls were traditionally more feminine, it’s much more common to see men stunting the pearls as today with celebrities like Shawn Mendes, Travis Scott, and Harry Styles leading the way.

How To Keep Them Forever

Pearls need to breathe because they’re organic and have small amounts of water. Store them in a cloth bag somewhere they can get some airflow. Never store pearls in a plastic bag or in an airtight environment.

 

Jewelry and Watches can be timeless and even relevant throughout the years/decades/centuries. When you’re looking to invest these are just some of the items to look out for. If taken care of, these treasures can be passed onto the generations to come.
