    Why choose second-hand earrings?

    Pre-loved jewellery has its own appeal. Here are some reasons why choosing a pair of pre-owned earrings over a new pair could be the perfect choice.

    Original pieces

    The extensive collection of second-hand earrings at H&T is likely to feature designs you won't see elsewhere. In this collection, there are exquisite pieces in vintage styles. Buying pre-owned means you can access rare studs and drop earrings, making this jewellery an extra-special gift.

    Lower prices

    We offer competitive prices for pre-owned earrings that are often cheaper when they're second-hand. However, while they're at a competitive price point, we won’t compromise on quality.

    There are earrings to suit a range of budgets and we know you'll love your second-hand pair. But you can still make use of our 30-day returns policy if you need to. Plus, we offer a one-year warranty as standard to give you extra peace of mind.


    If you're looking for a sustainable approach to your jewellery purchases, you'll find that shopping for pre-owned metals and gemstones can be the least harmful choice for the planet. Gold and diamond mining can disturb ecosystems, so buying second-hand means you can prolong the lifespan of a piece that was created many years ago.

    We encourage clients to consider buying second-hand pieces for this reason. Your earrings will be restored to the highest standard and there's a good chance they will look as good as they did when they were new.

    How do I know if my second-hand earrings are authentic?

    Every piece of jewellery for sale at H&T is authentic. We will never sell anything that's not genuine. To this end, our in-house jewellery experts carry out inspections to make sure our jewellery pieces meet strict standards.

    No matter if you're browsing our collection of pre-owned earrings or another type of jewellery, we ensure you get the best. We also confirm the hallmark and karat, so you can be sure we know the origins and background information about your earrings.
