Second-hand jewellery specialist in Paris
Second-hand jewellery is an extremely vast sector that includes the essential art deco ring but also bracelets, earrings, brooches, pendants and necklaces, and, of course, watches, a category a little apart but whose most beautiful pieces can be considered as jewellery.
Founders of the Bottazzi Blondeel Paris jewellery store in the early 2000s, Rosanna and Bruno Bottazzi developed their knowledge of second-hand jewellery by first working with their father for nearly 20 years, within the family jewellery store. A long experience that explains the reputation of seriousness and professionalism that Bottazzi Blondeel Paris jewellery enjoys today in the field of second-hand jewellery.
Second-hand jewellery, a connoisseur’s business
While anyone can be tempted to engage in the second-hand jewellery trade, this field is not well suited to amateurism. Indeed, it takes a solid experience and great knowledge to appraise second-hand jewellery. Similarly, it is necessary to be able to rely on a network of experienced craftsmen to restore damaged second-hand jewellery, taking care not to distort the original work. Indeed, a second-hand piece of jewellery must bear witness to its time. Thus, it would be a mistake to add “modern” elements to an old jewel that would then become distorted.
Second-hand jewelry and eco-responsible approach
What if buying a second-hand piece of jewellery is an eco-responsible approach? As in many other areas, the trend is towards conservation and even recycling. The aim is to avoid overproduction that damages the future of the planet due to pollution caused by manufacturing and transport and the depletion of natural resources. Buying a used piece of jewellery is certainly a gesture for the environment. Especially since the second-hand jewellery offered by the Bottazzi Blondeel Paris jewellery store has been appraised, cleaned and, if necessary, repaired according to the rules of the art. They are therefore second-hand jewellery which, sometimes have the brilliance of new, or present a slight patina which gives them an additional charm. Just something that can be felt as soon as you take them in hand. Moreover, if you have the opportunity to visit the Bottazzi Blondeel Paris boutique located at 41 rue des Martyrs, Paris, do not hesitate to visit us. We are open 7/7 days a week.
