What is estate jewelry?
Estate jewelry is any second-hand or pre-owned jewelry — from fine antique and vintage heirlooms to low-end items made last month overseas; from gemstones sold on television to diamonds left over from old relationships, fashionable “bridge” jewelry, and even some costume. It’s any jewelry in the hands of a consumer. Most commonly in a retail sense, to refer to jewelry and often timepieces which are part of the ‘estate’ of a deceased person, with the ‘estate’ appellation signifying that the item is antique, vintage or an otherwise considered a significant or important piece.
