Antique Jewelry Education
If you are looking for antique jewelry, it is helpful to learn about what the term “antique” means and how it is different from estate or vintage jewelry. Working with a jewelry expert will ensure that you are getting exactly what you are looking for and are not mislead by the terminology.
What is antique jewelry?
Antique jewelry is defined as any item of jewelry that is around 100 years old or older. If an item is labeled as an antique by a reliable jeweler, then you can be sure it is very old.
However, it is important to be aware of jewelers labeling an item as antique style. If the term “style” is paired with the word “antique,” it might be a reproduction and not a truly old piece.
