Sell Estate Jewellery
Anything that is pre-owned is considered to be Estate jewellery. The majority of pieces we see at Abbeys are from the mid to late 1900s. Other wide categories of jewellery include antique and vintage jewellery; the descriptions for these are as follows:
– Antique Jewellery
Antique Jewellery is not often seen at Abbey’s as it typically refers to items that are over 100 years old. Most of the jewellery we see falls into the Vintage category and are from the 50s, 60s and 70s.
– Vintage Jewellery
If it’s vintage, then it’s usually jewellery that is more than 20 years old, but less than 100 years old. Vintage jewellery can also be called mid-century or art deco jewellery. This is because the name reflects the era, or time period when the jewellery was created.
