Although beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, yet certain items are timeless and precious like antique estate jewelry .They have a special value of their own because they are time tested. Unless you take a closer look at antique estate jewelry, you would never appreciate their worth. Look at the craftsmanship, the brilliance, exquisite luster and of course, the antiquity of the design. I am sure you will be tempted to get one for a special occasion.
The other day a friend got engaged and I was sure jealous of the sparkling aquamarine antique engagement ring on her finger. I later learnt that her thoughtful husband-to-be had obtained it from an antique estate jewelry sale for his loving wife-to-be. What is more, the gentleman had observed that my friend’s eyes were of the same green-blue shade as the stone in the ring and thus found it irresistible. The magnificent antique estate jewelry was a real eye-catcher and my friend was more than happy to wear the glittering ring. Though rings and specially, aquamarine stone-studded ones are also available in regular jewelry stores, but I doubt if they could ever match the inimitable beauty of the antique aquamarine engagement ring that my friend had.
However, it takes time and patience to get the right antique estate jewelry since they are only sold through antique estate jewelry sales. It is necessary to attend the sales whenever it is organized, and then select the jewelry. Besides, the price varies from item to item and sequence to sequence. Some are heavily priced while some go for a song. It also depends on what you are looking for. Not that everyone is enamored by an aquamarine antique estate jewelry and could jolly well opt for some other variety but by and large, most of the antique estate jewelry are beautifully crafted and unique in design. I remember another friend of mine who acquired Queen Josephine’s antique diamond engagement ring from an antique estate jewelry sale for his darling wife who was simply overjoyed.
Why go in for antique estate jewelry when contemporary ornaments can satisfy the need? There are quite a few reasons. First of all, during the earlier days, things were mostly hand crafted and not machine made or simply molded in a particular design or shape. So the question of uniqueness and singularity never arises in contemporary jewelry that is basically copies. Also it is difficult to find original stones these days. Quality of the precious metal has also lost its originality greatly. As regards ingenious design and the master stroke, the world has lost the meaning of it. So, if you are keen on something that is a singular piece with quality written on all its facades, you should go in for antique estate jewelry and nothing else.
