5 Jewelry Considerations to Make After Body Transformations

Jewelry Update
Body changes can happen for a number of different reasons including weight loss, weight gain, pregnancy, cosmetic surgery, working out, and even injuries. When your body does change, one of the biggest things you may not realize you need to change is the jewelry you own. Depending on your size, jewelry is looks and is worn differently.

Luckily, there are plenty of options when it comes to either selling off pieces or having them resized by a professional. The different types of jewelry have different outcomes, so it's important to understand what your options are and the best way to move forward with these various changes or sales.

1. Rings

Changing body sizes may have a lot of focus on your legs or stomach, but the fingers can also lose or gain weight as well. As swelling goes down or you shed excess pounds, your favorite rings to not fit as snugly as they used to.

When the rings don't fit, you have multiple options to consider. You keep the stones and have the band replaced, or you can get an estimate on the whole ring and sell it all together. Getting a good value on a diamond allows you to select a new ring for your collection or something that matches your current style.

2. Watches

Gold and silver watches can hold a lot of value, but they may be a lot looser on your wrist after losing weight, wearing a cast, or going through some other type of major body change. There are multiple options to consider for a watch.

Many watches can be adjusted by a jeweler so they fit your wrist properly. You also have the option of selling the watch as a whole and picking out a new piece of jewelry. The new watch could represent a whole new time in your life after reaching your goals and transforming your body for the better.

3. Bracelets

Bracelets fall under the same category as watches but may not have the same flexibility. Many bracelets are one size, making it hard to adjust to your wrist as it changes. When this happens, you can sell the bracelet as a whole, collect top dollar, and invest in some new pieces.

Free estimates on your bracelet collection can help you pick out the best pieces worth selling from your collection. If you have a charm bracelet, you can save the charms and then get a new band that fits your wrist a lot easier.

4. Necklaces

Necklaces may seem like one piece of jewelry that you may want to keep, but there will be differences as your body changes. A necklace may hang lower, feel looser, and not have the same look as it once did. If this is the case, then you may be able to keep the pendant but opt for a shorter chain. Some pendants are permanently attached to chains, so you may want to sell the whole necklace and purchase a brand new one with a better fit.

A jeweler can determine the material your necklace is made of, give you a value, and purchase it from you. From there, you can have your neck measured and find the best necklace length for your needs.

5. Foot Jewelry

During the warmer months, you may decide to sport an ankle bracelet or toe ring, but if you lost weight or recently gave birth, some swelling may have gone down in your feet. If this is the case, you should consider selling off pieces and purchasing new ones that can fit better. A loose ankle bracelet or toe ring can be extremely annoying while you're walking and is likely to slip off and get lost.
