Selling Your Estate and Vintage Jewelry in Weston

z_wa01309a1Selling your personal jewelry can be an emotional and intimidating undertaking. If you are going to sell estate jewelry it is helpful to understand what estate Jewelry is. Periods of history that are usually included in “estate jewelry” include Early Victorian, Mid-Victorian, Late Victorian, Arts and Crafts era, Art Nouveau, Edwardian, Art Deco and Retro. Each period had its distinctive influences, designs and styles.

In addition, it is important to note that very few jewelers have the experience, expertise and financial resources to provide you with a “fair market price” for your fine antique and estate jewelry. Choose a reputable jewelry buyer, like Jackie Abraham Jewelers, to help you navigate and understand the complexities of the jewelry selling process.

Estate Jewelry Periods of History

  • Georgian Jewelry (1714–1837) often features designs with leaves and birds and frequently includes precious stones.
  • Early Victorian Jewelry (1837–1855) romantic jewelry that features nature-inspired designs often delicately etched into gold.
  • Brooches and lockets were very popular, and colored gemstones and diamonds were worn during the evening.
  • Mid-Victorian Jewelry (1856–1880) grand jewelry that features jewelry pieces that have solemn, grave designs. Also known as mourning jewelry, the pieces feature heavy, dark stones. Jet, onyx, amethyst, and garnet are frequently found in jewelry from this period. Jewelry design was impacted by the death of Queen Victoria’s husband.
  • Late Victorian Jewelry (1885–1900) aesthetic jewelry is characterized by diamonds and feminine, bright gemstones such as peridot, sapphire, and spinel. Elaborate hat pins and star and crescent designs were also popular.
  • Arts and Crafts Jewelry (1894–1923) was composed of simple patterns and colorful, uncut stones. Many jewelers rebelled during the Arts and Crafts movement and returned to producing jewelry with intricate designs and handmade quality.
  • Edwardian Jewelry (1901–1915) featured expensive gems, e.g., diamonds, emeralds and rubies in elaborate designs.
  • Art Nouveau Jewelry (1895–1915) is romantic jewelry that features natural designs like flowers and butterflies and often depicting long-haired, sensual women – sometimes transforming into bird-like or flower-like forms.
  • Art Deco Jewelry (1915–1935) consists of stylized motifs characterized by geometric designs, diverse combinations of color and abstract patterns designed inspired by art of American Indians, ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, cubism, African, Oriental, Persian and Islamic. Art deco jewelry is one of the most sought after jewelry categories as demonstrated by high auction results for jewelry from that era.
  • Retro Jewelry (1945–1960) inspired by Hollywood, this jewelry is colorful, bold and elaborate. Commonly retro jewelry pieces include large cocktail rings, necklaces, bracelets, watches and charms.

“No more lonely hearts since I’ve sold them all to Jackie Abraham Jewelers.  I had no use for the gold heart jewelry that had been given to me as a gift.  I felt a little vulnerable and embarrassed, thinking … “Am I that hard-up for cash that I am selling my jewelry?” And, honestly, it really wasn’t so much about the cash – I just knew I would never ever wear this piece of jewelry.  It just wasn’t me.  Talking to the professionals at Jackie Abraham helped put me at ease.  They were very courteous and professional on the phone and told me that many people sell unwanted jewelry every day.  Selling my jewelry was simple and painless, and Jackie Abraham’s was the best place to sell gold.  I got a great price for it. I would recommend Jackie to anyone who wants to sell gold jewelry.”  — S. Higgins
