JWO Jewelers Estate Jewelry
Many people use these words interchangeably, but they actually mean different things. When you picture JWO Jewelers Estate Jewelry, do you picture century-old jewelry or jewelry that is specifically vintage? If you picture either one or the other, we have a surprise for you. Estate jewelry is any type of pre-owned jewelry – no matter what time period is was crafted in or how old it truly is.
The word “vintage” implies a specific time period in history. The word “antique” specifies any piece of jewelry that is at least a century old. Notice the way a piece is named can influence the overall value, simply by being “antique” or “vintage”.
Our Estate Jewelry Selection at JWO Jewelers in Roswell Georgia changes all the time. If you are looking for a specific time period or style let us know. We will make an effort to find it for you, or may even have it in stock. Pearl Restringing is one of our specialities and can be a beautiful heirloom gift.
Keep in mind, JWO Jewelers Estate Jewelry can be either of these things. The pieces might be acquired from estate sales, the passing of a family member, an engagement gone wrong, a garage sale, a benefit, or other various methods. Some pieces may be unique, vintage, or antique. Others might simply be “estate” – neither from a specific period of time nor more than a century old.
Our estate pieces are generally twenty to thirty years old, but the term itself ranges over a very large group of jewelry. Something crafted or purchased several years ago could be included in our collection. This means you never truly know what you’ll find when you take a peek at our beautiful estate collection. WE ALSO OFFER ESTATE JEWELRY REPAIR.
This is also why you should always ask questions about estate pieces. If you are looking for something specific, it’s always best to ask. We can help you find estate pieces from specific periods of time, pieces that are a certain age, or pieces that meet a certain profile. If you are looking to make a gift out of an estate piece, we can help there too.
Antique pieces in good condition can be more expensive, but it depends on each individual piece – They take us to a time and a place that we know nothing about. They provide a unique sense of nostalgia and comfort. Antique pieces, at this point in time, could be anything crafted before the 1920s. Impressive, right?
Vintage pieces could be from Modern, Mid Century Modern, Edwardian, Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Retro, or Victorian periods. We are usually able to make a distinction based on their unique attributes and styles specific to their creation.
Nearly all estate pieces, whether vintage, antique, or simply used, reflect a sense of style that we have left behind. These styles are generally simple, yet impressive, and prepared to garner the interest of your family and friends.
JWO Jewelers Estate Jewelry is a favorite of our customers because we provide a gorgeous selection of dazzling pieces for generally affordable prices. We are fortunate enough to know many of the back stories that come with our pieces – allowing us to share the story with you.
We look forward to hearing from you soon!
