Hand-me-down jewelry, is it antique or vintage?
If you happen upon an older-style piece of jewelry, how do you know if it’s vintage or antique? Both can be valuable, but there is a pretty significant difference.
Any jewelry that is previously owned- it’s as simple as that!
Jewelry that is previously owned, but less than 100 years old
If it was made post-1920’s, it’s vintage!
Jewelry that is previously owned, and is over 100 years old
If it was made pre-1920’s, its antique!
