Estate jewelry can offer a one of a kind look that will set your style apart, without straining your wallet. From contemporary to antique, estate jewelry offers consumers both an excellent value and distinctive styles. However, when shopping for estate jewelry many people wonder what they should consider.
Three things to consider when purchasing Estate Jewelry are: condition, craftsmanship and design.
(1) Condition – This will influence both the value and the longevity of any item. If you purchase an item for a great price that is in poor condition, over time you may add substantially to the cost with needed repairs or the item may break beyond repair.
(2) Craftsmanship – Was the item well constructed, will it continue to stand the ultimate tests of time and use?
(3) Design – Overall style is a matter of personal taste. What one person may dismiss as unattractive another person will instantly fall in love with.
However, one thing to consider when contemplating the design is how comfortable it will be to wear. Sometimes an item will look great on display but will be uncomfortable to wear.
