Estate Jewelry Education
Antique jewelry can often be confused with estate or vintage pieces, but the terms are not interchangeable. It is important to know the difference when looking for your next keepsake to ensure that you are selecting what is right for you or your loved one.
What is estate jewelry?
Estate jewelry is any piece of jewelry that has been previously owned. This includes all jewelry that is second-hand, whether or not it is also vintage or antique.
Instead of classifying all used jewelry as estate, however, most jewelers tend to use the term to define pieces that are less than 30 years old. If an item looks much older than 30 years but is labeled estate jewelry, inquire about the age of the piece.
Be aware of sellers marketing something as estate jewelry. The seller might try to imply that the item is vintage or an antique, but it could be less than a month old. When looking for jewelry, it is important to work with an expert who can accurately guide you to what you are looking for.
