Antique, Vintage and Estate Jewelry is in the Eyes of the Beholder

Jewelry as objects of adornment has always been regarded with special affection. Showcase Antique Center has a large assortment of antique, estate and vintage jewelry on line. Most antique shops don’t carry the selection and quality of antique, vintage and estate jewelry for sale that we do.We realize that when people are shopping for jewelry, some will prefer estate jewelry because of the way the stones are cut and its modern look. We have a large selection of estate jewelry for sale. Others will prefer to search for vintage jewelry on line because they want the look of jewelry from the 1940’s to 1960’s. Still others will search vintage jewelry on line but with an eye for an antique piece which has fine detail. To give you examples of each of these categories let’s look at our current on line vintage, antique and estate jewelry.

From our Jewelry General Category we find a piece of vintage jewelry on line which is:

Vintage 18k star sapphire and diamond ring.

VINTAGE 18K STAR SAPPHIRE, SAPPHIRE, AND DIAMOND RING
18K STAR SAPPHIRE, SAPPHIRE, AND DIAMOND RING WITH ONE
OVAL CABOCHON-CUT NATURAL STAR SAPPHIRE WEIGHING
7.50 CTS (ESTIMATED), EIGHT (8) DIAMONDS TOTALING 0.80 CT (ESTIMATED),
AND SIX (6) NATURAL DARK BLUE SAPPHIRES; STAMPED “18K” ON THE SHANK; SIZE 5.
Next we will show you an exquisite piece of antique jewelry in our on line store.

ANTIQUE 12K SARDONYX CAMEO EARRINGS

ANTIQUE 12K SARDONYX CAMEO EARRINGS
12K YELLOW GOLD SARDONYX CAMEO EARRINGS DEPICTING THE BUST OF A WOMAN; UNMARKED. Length=1.25
Finally a piece of estate jewelry for sale with a more modern look and brilliant cut stones.

14K ART DECO-STYLE DIAMOND RING

ESTATE 14K ART DECO-STYLE DIAMOND RING
14K YELLOW GOLD ART DECO-STYLE DIAMOND RING WITH ONE (1) MARQUISE-SHAPE DIAMOND WEIGHING 0.34 CT (ESTIMATED), TWENTY (20) ROUND DIAMONDS TOTALING 0.46 CT (ESTIMATED), AND TEN (10) BAGUETTE DIAMONDS TOTALING 0.72 CT (EST.); MARKED “AM-G, 14K;” SIZE 6 1/2.

I hope the above examples help to illustrate the differences between vintage, antique and estate jewelry. The vintage jewelry has a softer look than the modern estate jewelry but not done with the same detail as the antique jewelry.

 Estate sales are wonderful but they are not famous for always getting the best prices. Antique shops like Showcase Antique Center which are located in tourist areas and open year round, have a large database of customers and attract may retail and wholesale customers. This may be a better choice for selling your estate jewelry.

Every Saturday we offer a free verbal jewelry and antique appraisal from 10:00AM to 2:00PM. Limit 2 items per person.

 You can sell us silver coins, sell us gold coins and gold and silver. You can sell gold from your broken gold chains, dental fillings or jewelry that you are not using. You can sell us sterling silver flatware or tea sets as well as accessories such as sterling bowls, candlesticks, etc..

 Although the Showcase Antique Center web site mainly offers antiques for sale on line it also offers antique furniture, jewelry and art.  
Buying antiques on line is easy because you can shop right from the comfort of your home and your purchases are shipped right to your door. If you want to buy antiques on line from Showcase Antique Center, we will gladly give you a (3) three day return privilege if you live in the USA. Only a small portion of our jewelry is on line. If you are searching for something special, give us a call or send us an e-mail and we will get right back to you.
