About Estate JewelryEstate jewelry is a term that describes jewelry that’s been previously owned. This kind of jewelry was originally sourced from the estates of those who’ve left inheritances to their descendants, but nowadays even jewelry pieces that have been owned for a day and then resold can be considered estate.
You may ask why you should pick estate jewelry when there’s new designer jewelry in our showcases. While we adore the pieces of bridal and fashion jewelry sculpted from our designers, there’s a certain quality to estate jewelry that can’t be matched by new designs. On a basic level, many estate pieces come with a remarkable patina and worn-in feel. They’ve been owned, passed down, and loved for generations, and it’s clear to see all of that when you take a look at any of the pieces we offer.
Also, the rarity is another good reason to search estate jewelry for the jewelry piece of your dreams. Women occasionally have a passion for a certain style or material that’s fallen out of fashion among designers, and it can be exceptionally rare to find contemporary pieces made with them. For example, cloisonné, cameos, and jet are all features that aren’t super-common in contemporary jewelry. For the woman who loves them, her only options may be custom design or browsing pre-loved estate jewelry from an older era.
And when you purchase a piece of estate jewelry, you know that you’ve become a link in a chain of historical beauty that will continue into the future. Rather than an owner of a piece of jewelry, you’re a preserver of antique trends and aesthetics, and you can be confident that your jewelry box is something like a museum for treasures.
