Estate Jewelry is very exciting. There is always something unexpected to find. Some are period pieces while other tell us a story of craftsmanship, purpose, or uniqueness. The history of jewelry marking events or occasions. The colorful one that matches the outfit. The brooch or pin that everyone loves to talk about.
Jewelry often marks and event, occasion, or accomplishment. The history of jewelry seen in the changes in the cutting fashion of diamonds with rose cut, mine cut, European cut and early round brilliant to name a few.
Gemstones have changed not only is what varieties and newer discovered mines, but changes offered through treatments and synthetic production. Yes, treatments and synthetic production didn’t start in the 21st century. Synthetic sapphire date back into the 19th century.
Gold, what color is it? It’s gold color and we weren’t using white gold until the early 20th century. Yellow gold, silver, platinum, tin, copper, all have a place in the history of jewelry.
Excitement comes from any of these discussed but identifying the gem, the metal the periods. But the real excitement comes from never knowing what surprise is the next treasure to be found.
