Custom Jewelry describes pieces that were previously owned, it sounds more elegant than used or old jewelry. Both vintage and antique are types of estate jewellery. Antique Jewelry is typically at least 100 years old but often Art Deco jewels crafted during the 1920’s to 1930’s are included. Fine antique jewelry is generally made of either yellow gold or platinum. Vintage Jewelry describes items that are at least one generation old, so anything before the 1980’s is currently considered vintage. Many think of costume jewellery when they hear vintage jewelry; however, between the 1940’s and 1980’s some of the finest crafted jewelry pieces were produced.
Each and every piece in our collection is hand-picked one by one. We do not purchase lots or large estates so only the finest in antique, vintage and estate jewelry is represented here. Our owner travels the world over to hand select and vet each and every choice. Only then our exacting standards can then be met for aesthetics and beauty, condition, workmanship and quality and authenticity.
Antique, vintage and estate jewelry has distinctive qualities of workmanship, individuality and rarity that are seldom found in new pieces and are sought after by collectors and discerning clients alike. Not only are these pieces often less expensive than new jewelry, but they also tend to hold their value, as they are not available in vast multiples or quantities.
