Over the past year or so, many of us have watched styles from our early years come back in popularity – we’re talking about baggy pants, crop tops, chunky sneakers, and tattoo chokers. But if you’re wondering if the fine jewelry styles of the mid-90s to early 2000s will be coming back, the answer is a firm N-O. Which, if you ask us, makes the argument to sell those outdated items in your jewelry box all the better. Let’s take a look at some recently sold items that are firmly out of style. 

Necklace Trends From Days Gone By

If you are looking for necklace styles to give you a blast from the past, high pendant necklaces and diamond-studded layers will definitely bring you back. In August, we saw two sellers say farewell to these trends, selling the Hoorsenbuhs open link necklace (#5) and the oh-so-dated gold link necklace (#9) below. These two items certainly had their time and now are able to serve their sellers all the better with the extra cash they earned when they sold. 

Big, Bold Rings 

The 90s and early 2000s were all about being bigger and bolder. And that concept extended to everything, diamond rings included. This era saw plenty of round-cut and princess-cut diamonds, wide bands, and all sorts of art-deco inspiration (see items #1-4 below). However, in the decades since, ring trends have changed a lot, with shoppers preferring thinner bands and more delicate settings. So if you are staring at your hand or a ring in your jewelry box thinking “I need an update”, listen to that inner voice! 

At Worthy, we see ourselves as your selling partner when it comes to selling diamond jewelry that just isn’t serving you – be it the outdated style or the memories associated with it.
