Estate jewelry simply means that it has been previously owned, or as I like to call it, previously LOVED! Contrary to popular belief, estate jewelry didn’t get it’s name simply because it was found at an estate sale, and just because it is considered estate jewelry does not necessarily mean that it is very valuable or antique. Jewelry must be at least 100 years old to be considered antique, whereas anything at least 20 years old can be referred to as “vintage” or “retro.” Estate jewelry combines various styles of jewelry such as Victorian, Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco.Maybe you like to dig through your mother or grandmother’s old jewelry box, or love finding a nice piece of costume jewelry at a garage sale or thrift store? We’re here to make sure you don’t have to do that anymore, get some estate style without having to rummage! SuperJeweler has hundreds of vintage inspired items to chose from!
