Types Of Estate Jewelry

Did you know there are several different eras of estate, antique, and vintage jewelry?

A piece of jewelry is considered “vintage” if it is more than 50 years old, but less than 100 years old. Unlike antique jewelry, vintage jewelry is often worn and displayed, as vintage jewelry is less likely to break due to its relatively young age.

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 high-quality pieces.

We purchase fine antique jewelry and gems from a variety of jewelry eras, including:

  • Georgina Era (1717-1837)
  • Victorian Era (1837-1901)
  • Arts and Crafts Era (1894-1923)
  • Edwardian Era (1901-1915)
  • Art Nouveau Era (1895-1915)

We purchase fine vintage jewelry and heirlooms from a variety of jewelry eras, including:

  • Art Deco Era (1915-1935)
  • Retro Era (1945-1960)
