If you’re lucky, you may already possess a family heirloom. An heirloom is something that's been passed down from generation to generation. It’s usually a piece of jewellery – it could be anything from your grandmother’s wedding ring, your great-aunt’s pearls, or your great grandfather’s wristwatch. Heirloom jewellery holds a special attachment as it was something that was worn by a relative. And if it was someone you loved or admired, the piece will hold tremendous value apart from its monetary worth. Heirloom jewellery is a great thing to pass down, and you can create one for your children and grandchildren too.

If you want your jewellery to become a cherished family heirloom one day, here are a few things to consider:


Choosing the piece

Your child, niece, or grandchild will one day receive this precious gift, so make sure you choose a classic, traditional piece with a solid structure that will truly stand the test of time. Getting custom designed jewellery and adding a personal touch will make the piece even more special—you could get it engraved or add your birthstone. When choosing a diamond ring, go for a classic and timeless look instead of something very trendy. Make sure it’s something you really love because before you bequest it to someone else, it’s going to be yours for a long time.


Take proper care of your jewellery

Understanding how to take good care of your jewellery will ensure it stays beautiful for a long time and will keep your heirlooms in good condition for years to come. Certain jewellery needs to be cleaned a certain way, make sure to gently clean and use simple non-abrasive materials to be safe. Keep your jewellery away from extreme heat and cold, store it in soft-lined compartments in a jewellery box – this should keep it safe from dust, heat, and moisture. Read our blog, How to Care For and Protect Your Jewellery Collection, for more tips on taking care of your jewellery.   


Get jewellery insurance

You can’t pass down a family heirloom if there’s nothing to pass down. Unfortunately, it’s very common for jewellery to get damaged, go missing or get stolen. Here are some common scenarios of rings going missing:

  • You could be washing your hands or doing dishes and it falls down the drain
  • You could lose it while swimming or while applying sunscreen at the beach
  • It could get stolen
  • You could lose it while working out or playing sports
  • You could misplace it
  • You could lose it while on vacation

It would be such a shame if something happened to the piece of jewellery you hold so dear. Jewellery insurance will make sure you’re covered in case something so unfortunate happens. By taking out specialist jewellery insurance cover with Q Report, you’ll get up to 125% cover, with an annual revaluation at no additional charge.
