Antique jewelry is jewelry that is about 100 years old or older. There are several time periods for antique jewelry:
Most of the pieces that we are looking to buy are from the end of the Art Nouveau period and the entire Art Deco period. The pieces that are most valuable will be items crafted from platinum or 18k gold, with larger center diamonds, and small diamonds all around. Filigree design work is desirable, and consists of tiny openings in the metal between where the stones are set.
Platinum diamond rings, earrings, and bracelets with rubies, emeralds, and sapphire accent stones are highly desirable and will command a higher price when compared to similar modern versions.
Condition is very important with antique jewelry. The better original condition items will be the most valuable. Pieces that have been repaired or altered with modern stones will lose some of the inherent value.
