Our Top Five Best-Selling Pre-Owned Designer Jewelry for 2021

Happy 2022, everyone! Let’s take a look at some of our best-selling jewelry pieces from 2021 and make predictions for the future of designer resale jewelry for 2022. So, you may be wondering if you should invest in designer jewelry for your store and what kind of jewelry sees the biggest returns. We’re here to tell you whether you’ve got a Chanel Brooch with faux pearls or a diamond engagement ring by Tiffany & Co., designer jewelry is absolutely worth the investment.

It’s no secret the pandemic greatly changed people’s shopping habits and instead of dropping money on clothing or a shoe trend, they began investing in designer jewelry since it could be seen on a Zoom chat, and it’s viewed as a hard asset and a tangible form of wealth. In fact, sales of fine jewelry have outpaced almost every other luxury category for 2020 and 2021 as consumers who weren’t spending money on travel or other experiences put the money aside and eventually made a feel-good purchase for themselves or someone they love.

In the past year, the luxury retail and jewelry industries have experienced some of their strongest growths, as consumers shop for quality over quantity and search for meaningful items that can be passed down to future generations. According to a survey by the Plumb Club, which pulled together information and statistics for the global jewelry market and the US jewelry industry, 48% of respondents said they made a jewelry purchase for a special occasion, while another 28% said they had no reason at all to make that purchase, but in many cases, it was just a gift to themselves. Also, according to the survey, $1,207 is the average amount spent on a jewelry purchase, with over 57% saying the availability of a financing option would influence their decision even more.


The world’s largest jewelry company, boasting brands like Tiffany & Co., Bulgari, Hublot, and Chaumet, is LVMH Group whose revenue amounted to $54.5 billion in 2020. Today, the company owns 5,003 jewelry stores worldwide and employs over 163,000 people. With its unmistakable and highly coveted little blue box, LVMH’s $15.8 billion purchase of Tiffany & Co. in January of 2021 helped solidify its reign.

Chanel, who is the second-largest trending jewelry brand, reported $13.7 billion of revenue and employees over 20,000 employees. Chanel was followed by brands like Cartier, Chopard, Van Cleef & Arpels, and David Yurman.


If you’ve been following our trends reports, you already know that designer jewelry is selling out in a flash. From Chanel to Tiffany, and Van Cleef & Arpels to Hermes, shoppers can’t get enough of these little luxuries. Previously, in our Summer 2021 trends report, we had pieces like the Chanel CC Pearl and Crystal Jewelry, Dior Necklaces, Chanel CC Bangles, the Hermes Clic Clac Bracelet, and the Van Cleef & Arpels Sweet Alhambra Necklace topping our list, and as 2021 came to a close, not much has changed.


Here are the five-designer jewelry pieces that were flying off our virtual shelves in 2021.

Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra Necklace

Featuring one of the most coveted and instantly recognizable jewelry logos today, the Sweet Alhambra necklace by Van Cleef & Arpels is in very high demand.

Chanel CC Logo Necklace

Shoppers everywhere love getting all wrapped up in Chanel’s classic CC logo necklace in dozens of designs and materials.

Dior CD Logo Necklace

Since Christian Dior is also making a huge comeback, the timeless CD logo necklace has also been tough to keep in stock.

Hermes Email Bangle Bracelet

This elegant and refined bracelet is crafted of unique, printed enamel with a choice of hardware. It’s a little more understated than the Clic Clac design that features the H closure.

Chanel CC Stud Earrings

The Chanel CC Stud Earrings are a timeless classic that pairs well with every chic outfit (especiall Chanel tweed jackets) and makes a classy statement without saying a word.
