News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. April 7, 2017: In today’s unpredictable world, it’s difficult to find something that always remains the same. This is especially true in the world of finance, as companies come and go, and stocks rise and fall every day. Even so, there are a few collectibles that will never go out of style, will never fail to put a smile on someone’s face, and will never lose their value. Below are five examples of timeless items:
Simply put, diamonds are a girl’s best friend but they can be an investor’s best friend, too. The setting can be even more valuable than its diamond if it happens to be set in gold or platinum. It is even better if it’s a designer piece or a collector’s item. After all, the legendary Wittelsbach-Graff Diamond sold for a mere $80 million. Unlike many collectibles, jewelry is timeless, meaning it is a collectible that will always be quite valuable.
While the worth of collectible coins depends on whether you are selling it in the country it came from, they can still be a worthwhile investment if you don’t plan to leave. The most valuable coin in America sold for $10 million. Collectible coins have risen in value by an incredible 225%. Just steer clear of anything coming from the Franklin Mint, as their items have a low resale value due to their exorbitant sale prices.
3: Limoges Boxes
Limoges boxes are so valuable today because of their incredible detailing, especially considering the original Limoges boxes were made in the 18th century. The boxes are unique because they are made of a special kind of porcelain called kaolin.Finding authentic Limoges boxes is tricky, as imitations are everywhere. However, if you can find a genuine article, then you have gold in your hands. Just be sure you know what to look for when purchasing a Limoges box.
4: Classic Cars
One collectible that always keeps its value is virtually any kind of classic car. As technology continues to dominate transportation, a well-maintained classic car becomes a relic of “simpler” times. As one might imagine, the value is only magnified if that car happens to be a luxury brand. The one caveat is the car must still be operational for maximum resale value, making them a pricey collectible to maintain.
While it may not be surprising to some, stamps are far more valuable than most people believe. Generally speaking, the older and more exotic the stamp is, the more it is worth. The most valuable stamp in the world is the Swedish Treskilling Yellow, having sold for more than $2 million at auction. Since stamps are enjoying a resurgence in popularity, their value has increased dramatically worldwide.
