luxury is in.

So many consumers, both men and women, aspire to own premium luxury goods like watches, leather goods, fine jewelry, cars, furnishings and alike. Gucci, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Bentley, Van Cleef and Arpels, Minotti, etc.

Luxury is in and it isn’t going away anytime soon.  Affluent shoppers can be found at South Coast Plaza everyday searching for their current ‘must haves’. 

What many people don’t realize is that there’s a very large resale market for luxury goods.  The most affluent people regularity sell off their designer items in favor of the newest because it just wouldn’t be right to be seen with a Coach bag from 2016 and rarely can celebrities or socialites be seen in the same dress twice.  The same goes with cars and furnishings. 

consignment

counterfeits

As the luxury industry booms along with the economy, prudent consumers are taking advantage of purchasing products through second-hand channels such as estate sales, the internet, consignment shops, and local dealers. The only flaw in the system is the large amount of counterfeit items that have been imported into the US. If your not an expert at spotting the fakes, having an expert help you is a must.  Buying on line makes it even more difficult as so many 2nd-time-around sites have ‘no refund’ policy’s.  

appraisals and appraisers.

The hardest part of appraising luxury designer goods is keeping up with the changes and updates by the designers. For example, in 2010 Cartier updated the screw system on their icon Love bracelet, and hand-made items can have subtle differences. Sometimes products can differ from manufactured batches as well. In addition, every luxury brand has its own level of technology, and as we all know technology is always changing. A good appraisers has to be alert, aware, and always ‘in the game’. An appraiser that works part-time or who has retired is likely not going to yield the best results.
