Does antique jewelry go up in value?

1 Answer
Does antique jewelry go up in value?
Yes, some antique jewelry does go up in value. It is important to note that demand as well as the condition of your specific piece will have a major effect on how much it is worth. A certain historical period’s jewelry may be worth more to collectors than accessories from other less noteworthy eras, and whether or not a given accessory is set with precious gems may affect its value as well. You may wish to have the jewelry evaluated by a certified appraiser who can examine the piece and estimate its value. Master jewelry designers and luxury houses of the 19th and 20th centuries include Cartier, Tiffany & Co., Van Cleef & Arpels, BVLGARI and others. On 1stDibs, shop a large collection of jewelry from some of the world’s top sellers.
