I was cleaning out my jewelry stash today and incidentally found a Tiffany‘s necklace that I wore once back in 2010. I had completely forgotten about it and actually thought that I gave it back to the person who originally gave it to me as a gift. Then in retrospect, I remembered that I did keep it because I wanted to sell it on Ebay lol but later could not find it after I moved.
Now that I’ve rediscovered it, I don’t know if I should keep it or not? I browsed Ebay for comparative prices and saw a bunch of Tiffany’s hearts by Elsa Peretti. What amused me was that the hearts were practically worthless with some going as low as $30! (Authenticity unknown) Not only so, you wouldn’t believe how many people are selling them as well as similar styles… Judging by these two factors of good price and selection on Ebay, I guess I’d better keep the necklace. If these hearts were not being bid on for 30$, I’d rather not hassle with listing it up, writing a whole bunch of stuff to praise its beauty (cuz truthfully it’s not that amazing), deal with people’s questions, shipping it out, and then all the complications if things go wrong! A waste of my time. I will put it up for sale on my blog here if anyone wants it, but my asking price is a lot higher. This will probably be the only time that I’d suggest buyers to go onto Ebay instead for better prices lol!
In the end, I’m forced to keep the necklace for now. At first when I took it out of the protective pouch today, I was surprised that it had been completely stained with BLACK TARNISH after 2 years of not wearing it. Maybe one day I’ll bring it back to Tiffany’s to ask them to professionally polish the silver and then re-gift it to my cousin lol (she wouldn’t mind, we share stuff all the time). I should’ve taken a pic pre-polishing, but I’d tried my best to polish the silver myself, so here it is now:
