How Gems, Metals and Motifs are Impressed in Jewelry
While historians can note time periods and categorizing sub-periods of time and how it changed. Our associates are highly skilled and experienced to recognize the expressions of jewelry. Jewelry pieces make a statement without words. We hear what those precious gems and metals are saying. Because the feeling of the times transcends into jewelry. For instance, the “Romantic Period” has very notable characteristics in its jewelry. The metal work in jewelry and design took on an ornamental delicacy. In addition, popular motifs included love knots, hands, hearts vines and leaves. Gemstones were for the most part set in claw-like prongs, encircling the outer rim of the gem with metal. This also was a time “Acrostic Jewelry” was made. In these pieces the gemstones were arranged so the first letter of each spelled out a loving word.
To Sell Antique Jewelry the Appraisal is Most Important
To get the most money possible from selling jewelry, you need to know its worth. That’s why it is imperative to have an accurate appraisal. At Oro Express Mesa Pawn and Gold our assessments of jewelry pieces are spot on!! We know this because our associates are certified and experienced. Our valuations are based on the following:
First and foremost, we locate the hidden stamp. The stamp indicates the karat of the precious metal in the piece. It can also identify the time period or maker of the jewelry piece itself. After that, a touchstone is swiped against the precious metal to take a sample. This in no way affects or harms your jewelry piece. The sample provides the means to validate a precious metal’s purity using drops of acid.
If any diamonds are set in the jewelry, they are inspected for color, cut, clarity and carat of the gem. Although it is a part of the jewelry, its value is determined as a separate entity in the appraisal.
After that, we consider the jewelry’s aesthetic appeal. Not only the condition of the jewelry, but also note any uniqueness of it. Finally, our staff member refers to the fair market value of the antique. Once all is considered, you will be presented with the best cash offer possible!!
