Estate Jewelry San Diego

Interested in estate jewelry in San Diego? You’ve come to the right place. A common misconception in the jewelry world is that estate jewelry is antique. But this is not always the case. So what is estate jewelry? Is it jewelry purchased at an estate sale? Or does this term simply refer to jewelry that belonged to a person who is now deceased? It can be a little tricky to depict estate jewelry from antique jewelry, but that’s why we’re here to help! The simplest explanation for estate jewelry is jewelry that is pre-owned; it is just a more elegant way to describe jewelry as used. Estate jewelry can come from many different time periods. While antique jewelry is also pre-owned, it must be more than 100 years old to classify as antique. Although antique jewelry may be estate jewelry, estate jewelry is not necessarily always antique. Someone can purchase a ring today, decide they no longer desire it after a few days, return it, and it would be considered estate jewelry. Most estate jewelry comes from family members that inherited them or original owners who no longer want or need them. If you’re hesitant about purchasing estate jewelry, allow us to explain the benefits.

  • Because estate jewelry is pre-owned it is often offered at a more economical price than newly manufactured pieces. Even the most contemporary pieces of fine jewelry can be priced well enough for the most modest of consumers if it is estate jewelry.
  • One of the greatest advantages of purchasing estate jewelry is the opportunity to own a little piece of history. There is history and depth to estate jewelry that brand new pieces just do not offer. Regardless of how old the piece is, it has a special story and you’ve now become an additional part of that history.
  • When buying estate jewelry you can be certain it is of great quality since it has withstood the test of time. Fine jewelry is very durable, which makes for a lasting investment. On top of that, our skillful jewelers have restored each piece of estate jewelry so it appears brand new.
  • Buying estate jewelry is also environmentally friendly! When more people purchase pre-owned valuables that means less mining and manufacturing of new materials, which in turn equals less air pollution, less water pollution, and more safety for wildlife habitats.
