What To Do With Your Inherited Estate Jewelry

These days there are many misconceptions out there about estate jewelry. Many times people confuse estate pieces with antiques or vintage pieces. And some people say it’s bad karma to where estate pieces. But today we’re here to set the record straight. Our goal is to help you understand exactly what inherited estate jewelry is and what to do with it if you have some.

What is estate jewelry?

Estate jewelry is a piece of jewelry that has been owned previously. Inherited estate jewelry is the same concept except it’s a piece of jewelry that is brought into possession by succession or will. Many times these pieces are irreplaceable and can hold tremendous value.

Estate jewelry pieces encompass a category of jewelry that is on the higher end of the spectrum. They often features fine workmanship and high-quality stones. Most of the time these pieces are one of a kind.

Should I sell my inherited estate jewelry?

When deciding whether or not you want to sell your precious estate jewelry there are a few questions you need to ask yourself. For example, do I wear this piece often? Does this piece bring me joy and happiness? If the answers to those questions are yes, then keep on appreciating your piece. 

If the answers to those questions are no or if you are skeptical about it, then it may be time to sell your jewelry and get on with life. But perhaps the piece is filled with memories or holds a special place in your heart. It’s really up to you what you choose to do with it, but you should be aware of the options in case you do decide to sell. 

Selling your old estate jewelry isn’t hard and can come in handy if you need the extra cash. You can sell your old jewelry to your local jewelry stores (Raymond Lee Jewelers if you’re in the area) or you can even consider selling it online on sites like eBay or Poshmark.

How much money can I get for my inherited estate jewelry?

Ok, so you’ve established that you have inherited some estate jewelry and you’d like to sell it. Now what? Now you want to know exactly how much money you can get for your precious jewelry. Well here’s the tricky part. It varies.

Just like each and every piece of jewelry that we sell varies in price, each piece of estate jewelry holds a different value. This means each and every piece will come with a different offer and return on your investment (if you made one). 

What you’ll want to do is have your piece appraised before picking a price that works for you. An appraiser will work with you to determine the value of your jewelry and allow you to come with an open mind when you find a potential buyer.
