Questions About Jewelry Marks Vintage
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 6, 2023
    Yes, some vintage jewelry has markings. Makers may have stamped pieces with hallmarks to represent the types of metals used in them and/or to signify that they came from certain brands. However, not all vintage jewelry is marked. On 1stDibs, shop a wide range of vintage jewelry from some of the world's top dealers.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 22, 2022
    Yes, Monet jewelry is marked, but the hallmark employed by the brand has changed greatly over the years. During the 1920s and 30s, most pieces said "Monocraft." Later, the company used "Monet," "Monet Jewelers," and "Monet Sterling." Pieces after 1955 feature the brand name and a copyright symbol. On 1stDibs, shop a selection of vintage Monet jewelry.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 1, 2023
    Yes, fake jewelry can have markings. Jewelry produced out of materials other than precious metals and real gemstones may still have a brand hallmark stamped somewhere on it, as many fashion jewelry makers add their logos to their pieces. Fake jewelry that is a replica of authentic fine jewelry may also bear a maker's mark to make the reproduction more convincing. However, these fraudulent hallmarks often aren't identical to the genuine markings, and noticing this difference can help you spot fakes being passed off as genuine pieces. Explore a large collection of jewelry on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 13, 2023
    One way to identify jewelry markings is to use trusted online resources. You can enter a description of the markings in a search engine to get results, whether they are serial numbers, a brand’s maker’s marks, or some other inscription that may appear on an accessory’s inner band or clasp. Ultimately, you’ll likely want to work with a certified appraiser who specializes in jewelry to accurately identify your jewelry’s markings. Shop a collection of vintage and designer jewelry from some of the world's top jewelers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Yes, Trifari was always diligent in marking its jewelry, and the mark has evolved over the years. There were a few pieces in the early years that went unmarked, but those pieces are extremely rare. Costume jewelry maker Trifari is widely beloved for its fine craftsmanship and complex designs for necklaces, brooches and other accessories. On 1stDibs, you can find a collection of authentic Trifari jewelry pieces from some of the world’s top sellers.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 21, 2023
    To tell if jewelry is vintage, first look for hallmarks that may indicate the maker. Then, consult trusted online resources to research the markings and find out when the jewelry house produced pieces that are similar to yours. Anything made at least 20 to 80 years ago is vintage. Because there are many contemporary pieces inspired by vintage designs, you may want to consider taking your jewelry to a certified appraiser or knowledgeable dealer who can inspect and date it. On 1stDibs, explore a wide range of vintage jewelry.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 1, 2023
    Jewelry that is 20 to 80 years old is considered vintage. Pieces that are 100 years old or older are antiques. Vintage jewelry includes rings, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, brooches and even hair accessories like combs. Shop a range of vintage jewelry on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 1, 2023
    Vintage costume jewelry refers to costume jewelry that is 20 to 80 years old. Jewelry, costume or otherwise, that is 100 years old is referred to as antique. The big design fair in Paris in 1900 inspired jewelers to work with inexpensive materials, and Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel and others helped popularize costume jewelry during the 1920s. The roots of costume jewelry, however, took shape at least as far back as the 18th century, when paste jewelry that featured hand-cut glass instead of gemstones first emerged. Shop a variety of vintage costume jewelry on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 21, 2023
    The way to tell if vintage jewelry is real depends first on determining what you mean by "real." If you want to know if a piece is actually made by a particular brand or is a reproduction, you can consult trusted online resources to see what hallmarks and other details are present on genuine pieces. Then, you can examine your jewelry using these criteria. You can also find tests to determine whether precious metals and gemstones are real or not. However, use caution, as some tests can damage jewelry. A simple way to tell if vintage jewelry is an authentic example of a particular maker's work or made of real materials is to take the piece to an experienced appraiser or dealer. Find a large selection of vintage jewelry on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertDecember 12, 2023
    Many people would argue that vintage jewelry isn't making a comeback because it has never faded in popularity. Although what's considered vintage changes from decade to decade, the demand for jewelry that is between 20 and 99 years old generally remains high. There are collectors who look for pieces featuring specific materials or that were made by certain brands, and many men and women find vintage jewelry appealing because it is unique and has history. Shop a variety of vintage jewelry on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertDecember 12, 2023
    To tell if jewelry is vintage or antique, first look for any hallmarks that signify its maker. You can use trusted online resources to research when the maker was active and producing pieces similar to yours to roughly estimate its age. Jewelry is vintage if it's between 20 and 99 years old, and antique if it is 100 years old or more. If you're unable to locate a maker's hallmark, becoming familiar with the materials and other characteristics used during different eras of jewelry can help you date your piece. When in doubt, enlist the help of a certified appraiser or knowledgeable dealer. On 1stDibs, explore a large collection of vintage and antique jewelry.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 1, 2023
    To find out how much your vintage jewelry is worth, you can conduct online research using trusted sources. By seeing what similar pieces have sold for in the past, you can estimate the value of your jewelry.
