Collection: THE VAULT

When referring to previously owned jewelry, the term "estate jewelry" sounds more upscale than "used jewelry" or "antique jewelry." Antique and vintage jewelry are both examples of estate jewelry. Antique jewelry is normally at least 100 years old, but it frequently includes pieces made in the Art Deco style between the 1920s and 1930s. Most fine antique jewelry is made of platinum or yellow gold. Anything made before the 1980s is currently regarded as vintage jewelry because it is defined as having at least one generation of age. When people hear the term "vintage jewelry," they frequently picture costume jewelry; nonetheless, some of the best-crafted jewelry was created between the 1940s and 1980s.
