Fine jewelry is more than just intricate pieces encrusted with diamonds and gemstones. It is a representation of excellent craftsmanship and artistry. Every piece of fine jewelry tells its own story and captures the essence of the designer's vision and the cultural heritage it embodies. It is a fusion of art, beauty, and timeless elegance that goes beyond the ever-changing trends. And for those who feel the same way as we do, collecting fine jewelry becomes a passion.

If you’re also trying to start your fine jewelry collection but don’t know where to begin, you’ve come to the right place. Read on and find out how you can start and properly maintain your fine jewelry collection.


What is Fine Jewelry?

Just to make sure we’re on the same page, let’s clear out the basics first. Fine jewelry is made using precious metals and encrusted with precious gemstones and diamonds. It is different from fashion jewelry, which is made using base metals or plastic.

Buying fine jewelry is indeed an investment. But since the piece will be crafted using precious metals and gemstones, the value of the piece will appreciate with time.

Why You Need a Fine Jewelry Collection

Having a fine jewelry collection is worth it for several reasons. Since fine jewelry is crafted with exceptional attention to detail using precious metals, it is durable, and its luster lasts for a long time. If proper care is taken, fine jewelry can be passed down through generations, making them a valued piece of heirloom jewelry. The brides in the family can incorporate this heirloom jewelry into their bridal ensemble, making sure that the blessings of their elders remain with them on their special day.

Apart from this, designer fine jewelry allows the individual to express their personal style and preferences. Your Indian fine jewelry collection can tell a lot about your unique taste and personality. Fine jewelry offers endless possibilities for self-expression and allows you to choose between classic and timeless pieces featuring innovative designs.

Creating and Maintaining a Fine Jewelry Collection

Before we get to the part where we discuss pieces of fine jewelry, let’s take a quick look at what you need to keep in mind while building and maintaining your fine jewelry collection.

Start Small

If you’re starting your fine jewelry collection and don’t know what your first piece should be, we suggest you go for something small. Starting with a small piece will tell you the difference between your fashion jewelry and fine jewelry. It will allow you to compare both and understand why fine jewelry is superior and the better option.

Find Something That Matches Your Style

Starting with something that matches your style is the ideal way to start a fine jewelry collection. Not only this will allow you to use the piece more frequently, but it will also make you more comfortable with fine jewelry pieces and how you can take proper care of them.

Something Special

Once you’ve picked the smaller pieces and feel like adding more to the collection, go for something special. Pick a piece that lets you steal the spotlight wherever you go.

Feel free to go all in and pick something vibrant with sparkling gemstones or uncut diamonds. If you’re a minimalist and prefer subtle and simple pieces of jewelry, going with pearls can be an excellent choice. Your ‘special’ pieces will stay with you while you create all your special memories. From a birthday to a wedding day, these pieces will embellish all your outfits and will help you look picture-perfect for all memorable days.

Something Made (Specifically) For You

Once you’ve made a collection that has some exquisite pieces, you can always get something made specifically for you. Bespoke jewelry or custom fine jewelry is the talk of the town these days. The best part is that your custom-made piece will be truly unique. It will not be mass-produced and so, no one else will own a piece like yours.

Bespoke jewelry also allows the wearer to play a major role in the designing phase. At Aurus, we involve the customer in every part of the designing process, making sure that the product reflects the wearer’s personality and meets their expectations. Every piece of bespoke fine jewelry is made with utmost precision and care using the finest of materials.

Custom fine jewelry is perfect if you’re in search of an heirloom piece. The piece that will embellish generations to come should be unique and truly one of a kind. With custom fine jewelry, you’ll be able to take your fine jewelry collection to a whole new level and add a touch of unmatched grace and elegance to every outfit that you pair the piece with.

Remember we asked you to start small if you’re picking your first piece? Earrings are just the piece you can go with. Going with a pair of small stud earrings is a great choice. If you’re going for something minimal, you can always go with pearls or polki, or both.
