Selling Vintage Jewelry VS. Selling Antique Jewelry

Did you know a piece of jewelry is considered vintage when it is more than 50 years of age, but less than 100 years of age? Unlike the unique qualities of antique jewelry, vintage jewelry is more often worn and displayed. This is due to the fact that vintage designs are less likely to break at a somewhat young age.

You can see that many vintage designs are still in tune with the modern trends of today. Vintage jewelry has become a wonderful choice for those looking for a unique style or to make a fashion statement. Vintage jewelry can add something special to your wedding ring or general day-to-day outfits as beauty is in the eye of the beholder!
