We asked people to give their thoughts on pre-loved jewellery for a competition we are running on Facebook. Our competition is still running so if you are based in Australia please check out our Facebook page here. We had some amazing feedback in the first 24 hours which we shared on a previous blog post which you can also view here.
As our competition continues, we are finding even more wonderful thought out responses and are sharing them below:
