It can be an investment, to complete a collection, to have fun or to gift a jewel that is out of the ordinary. Vintage jewelry seduces with its beauty and incomparable quality. Many embody a particular period, not only with their design, but also with the materials used. Whatever the decade that saw the birth of a vintage piece of jewelry and despite the different aesthetic currents, it is most often far from current, more refined or minimalist codes. Vintage jewelry in bakelite, 18-carat yellow gold or platinum, are particularly glamorous and often daring.
How old is vintage jewelry? Usually, those pieces are around 50 years old, but not more than a century. Older than that, we enter into the category of antique jewelry.
You really need to be an expert to appraise vintage jewelry. Is it authentic? Who designed the jewel? What is the weight in precious metals? What's the value of the diamonds or other precious stones (rubis, emerald...)? Is it a sought-after piece? To get a fair answer, the best is to bring your vintage jewelry to us. We will appraise it in no time.
Cleaning jewelry must be done with utmost care. It's even more the case when one wants to clean vintage jewelry. Don't use chemical products (unless made specifically for that purpose), just plain water. Use a gentle brush or a soft piece of cloth to dislodge any dirt. Ultrasonic cleaners also do a good job to clean vintage jewelry without damages. A professional cleaning by a qualified jeweler is another good way to do the job.
