However, if you are curious about what era your estate jewelry may be prior to your consultation appointment at Charles Schwartz & Son, consider the following characteristics of your estate jewelry to help you determine which era your estate jewelry might fall under:
- Metal(s): the type of metal(s) incorporated into the design of a piece of estate jewelry, along with the metal’s karat weight, can reveal a great deal about the age and relative origin of a piece of estate jewelry.
- Gemstone(s): although gemstones have been a staple of high-end jewelry design for centuries, the popularity of specific gemstones varied amongst eras.
- Prominent Motifs Present in Design: subtle design details and motifs found in estate jewelry are arguably the easiest “tell” of the piece’s age or era of origin.
Receiving An Offer When Selling Antique and Vintage Jewelry in DC
After our expert jewelers appraise your item, we’ll offer you a transparent and fair price! We want to make sure individuals understand why their items are priced and are happy to answer all questions. It’s important to note that a piece of jewelry is considered “antique” if it is over 100 years old. Antique jewelry was crafted from high-quality materials with a superior level of craftsmanship, leading to sturdy, high-quality pieces. For this reason, in addition to the old age and relative scarcity of antique jewelry, many people find their antique pieces too valuable to be worn.
