The difference between antique, collectible and heirloom jewelry.
The terms “antique,” “vintage,” and “estate” are easily confused and misused. Let’s look at the difference between antique jewelry, vintage jewelry, and estate jewelry.
1- Vintage jewelry
If a piece of jewelry is between 50 and 100 years old, it is generally called vintage jewelry. The word "vintage" is probably the most common of the three, as it covers a period of mass production of jewelry. Unlike antique jewelry, vintage jewelry is often worn and displayed because it is less likely to break. Vintage jewelry design is also easier to integrate into avant-garde clothing, because vintage jewelry design is relatively current, it is easy to match the most popular trend today.
2- Old jewelry
An antique piece of jewelry is an object that is more than 100 years old. Antique rings come from the Georgian era, the Victorian era, the Edwardian era or the Art Deco era. Many decorative art objects from the 1920s are considered antiques today, especially those made in the early 20th century.
In general, compared to modern jewelry on the market today, antique jewelry is made with higher quality materials and a higher level of craftsmanship. However, due to the relative rarity and age of the jewelry, the value of most antique jewelry is too high to wear or even display at times.
3- Heirloom jewelry
Heirloom jewelry is all second-hand jewelry. Although described by the word "estate", the previous owner of an estate piece of jewelry is likely to be living. Although a considerable portion of the former owner of the estate jewelry is indeed deceased, the fact that the former owner is still alive has nothing to do with the status of the jewelry as estate jewelry.
Additionally, age has nothing to do with whether a piece of jewelry is classified as "property", estate jewelry includes all pre-owned jewelry, whether antique or collectible. This piece of jewelry may be less than a month old and can still be considered an heirloom piece of jewelry.
