Revival of Old Gold

An air of excitement ran through the entire place, bright Kanjeevarams in umpteen colors, haute couture wardrobe essentials, elaborate wedding preparations, an unending guest list, a grand canvas of flower decorations, gourmet array of cuisines splashed the marriage hall. A bunch of Soigné millennial woman hushing their way in the bride wagon, the very close besties of the bride with couture clothes specially tailored for the occasion, lacquered nail arts, glued hair dos are among others that caught our eye.

What caught our attention was a lovely sight of five grandmothers pressing their hands together marching to the first row. It was a glory to watch them. Considering their ripe age, it felt like all the life experiences were walking together hand in hand, their freckles, their sagging muscle bones, their humped backs, their extra cautious gait, high neck blouses and their very authentic gold Jewellery. All of them in their late 70s, that includes brides grandmother and her sisters. The photographer quickly shifted his focus to them, may be for a few instagram shots that would throw a quick competition to millennial woman in the wedding hall.

The Jewellery they wore were undoubtedly are old gold legacy pieces. Old gold Jewellery designs included – Chandra haram, Gullaperu, Kante, Kasulaperu, Guttapusalu, Linga Padakka Muthu Malai, Manga Malai and so on. After a keen interest in them and a little research from the grandma gang we come to know that these are just few among a wealth of jewels we Indians have, if we talk about the ethnic Nizam or Mughal jewels the list goes endless.

They were all perched with primitive designs such as the floral patterns, compelling idols of goddesses, beads, golden orbs, an eloquent use of pearls/corals/rubies, emeralds, all of them had one thing in common- A dusty enriching finish which perhaps we pay for in the current times. This leaves me with the thoughts of reviving old gold jewelry that we all must have possessed either as legacy pieces or our own old gold that came as a gift some popularly in use some left locked away.

Here are five ways on how you can revive your old Jewellery

Resizing

An old design gold necklace or an old design gold earrings lying in the deep pockets of your treasure chest can now be bought out to resize to fit you. Or have you lately gotten into the cult of fitness and lost all those extra pounds, this will automatically loosen up your bangles, rings, bracelets, Vankis etc. Get them to us to resize back. They can be easily done at a jeweler near you at a very nominal cost or at no cost at Vaibhav.

Redesigning

If you have any old gold coins, bring them out to redesign into beautiful contemporary items that you can use on a daily basis. Also if you have an existing design search ways to redesign them to suit your style. Example a pearl chain can be redesigned as a choker with an oversized native birth stone at the centre. The pearl choker is currently trending for its lightweight and minimalist design.

Recleaning & Coating

Restyle

Native old gold necklaces designs, harams, bangles etc can be restyled to suit the latest trends. Example a traditional kasulaperu has always been paired with a kanjeevaram saree, however it would look stunning if it can be dressed on a floor touch kanjeevaram bordered gown too. Ever thought about that!!! Its time to reinvent styles with the jewelry you have at hand with your wardrobe essentials.

Resell

Reselling old gold has always been speculative. Questions like “where to sell old gold” & “how to sell old gold jewelry” are at the tip of the mind. You can exchange and find old gold rate at any jewellery store near you. Ideally there will be a gold appraiser present at every store, who inspects the quality of the gold and gives you an exchange price. If the old gold coins are BIS hallmarked then the exchange rate will be as that of the current gold rate. You can also seek the help of our customer service to find out the old gold price or old gold sale related queries.

We suggest you not to sell your dear heritage pieces such as the grand chandraharams, gullaperu, mamidi pindelu haram etc but to give a renewed life to them. Hope you got an insight as to what you can do with your treasured old gold. Bring them all back to life and let the gold shine on you than in your trousseau.
