Survey suggests the average woman owns £6,000 of jewellery

Some call it a collection, some call it hoarding, and others might just see it as a waste, but almost all women can say they have jewellery boxes at home, many of which not be entirely sure what exactly is in them. A recent study has revealed there could be as much as £6,000 worth of jewellery in the average collection of a 40-year-old woman.

Once the jewellery box becomes full some pieces can often go years without being worn, and now it’s been stated that the average woman astonishingly has around £3,000 worth of jewellery which she will never wear.

The statistics have been cited following a survey of 2,000 women, revealing some interesting results.

The survey showed that most women wear less than half the jewellery they own and that the value of the average jewellery collection grows by £2,000 every decade.

That means the average 60-year-old woman can expect her collection to be worth around £10,000 while a 30-year-old’s collection is likely to be worth around half that.

Other facts to emerge from the study include that the single most expensive piece of jewellery owned by any woman is likely to be an engagement ring, while two thirds of women own diamonds by the age of 40.

It also revealed how only a third of women are likely to have bought their most expensive piece of jewellery for themselves.

These facts mean you could have a hidden treasure trove sat at home, including antique pocket watches, for sale perhaps, which will fetch premium asking prices.
