The term “Estate Jewelry” simply refers to any previously owned piece of jewelry. This type of jewelry is not necessarily old. For jewelry to be considered antique, it must be at least 100 years old. At AJ Marks, you may find vintage jewelry in our estate collection. Vintage often refers to older pieces made between 1940 and 1980, the Retro Modern period.
Some estate jewelry notes of interest include:
- Vintage designer costume jewelry has a distinctive look that does not appear to be mass-produced.
- Having authentication papers, price tag, original bow or the designer’s logoed pouch can double the value of your jewelry.
- Diamonds in antique estate jewelry will often have a traditional old-mine or rose cut. The settings for these cuts will show less of the diamond than current, modern cuts.
- Older jewelry is usually found in 12, 22 or 23-karat gold. Older pieces may be crafted of 9-karat gold, newly manufactured jewelry must be a minimum of 10-karat to be sold as gold jewelry.
Carefully selected estate jewelry pieces are bought and sold at AJ Marks Jewelers. If you have an older piece, something left to you by a parent or grandparent, our jewelry experts can appraise your piece and provide information.
