Buying Estate Jewelry in Seattle 

The Best Tips for Buying Estate Jewelry Seattle 
While brand new jewelry can be stunning, there's something special about jewelry that has a history behind it. If you are interested in antique jewelry, you'll be glad to know that Menashe & Sons Jewelers offers estate jewelry in Seattle, as well as on their website. We can help you to find beautiful, timeless pieces, both old and new. We provide proper authentication and documentation of the estate jewelry which will help you understand the true value of the piece. Moreover, if you are buying estate jewelry in Seattle, don’t forget to ask about the history of the jewelry. Knowing the story behind the vintage piece can help buyers appreciate the jewelry even more and add sentimental value.

Of course, if you've never bought from an estate before, you might be feeling a bit overwhelmed. Keep these tips in mind and you'll have a more satisfactory shopping experience. 

Have a Clear Budget in Mind
Estate rings and other antiques often offer exceptional value for the price, particularly when you consider the weight and condition of the pieces available. With that said, the cost can vary greatly based on what you buy. It's best to have a budget in mind before you start browsing.

If you visit Menashe & Sons Jewelers and let us know your budget, we'll help you find stunning pieces that are perfect for you. Even if you have a limited budget, we'll make sure you're more than happy with what you get for your money.

Identify Your Favorite Eras 

Our goal is to guide you towards gorgeous jewelry that you'll absolutely love.

If you're not sure what it is you're looking for, you may want to take the time to read up on antique jewelry. Look at pictures of pieces from different eras. Try to find the jewelry era that's most appealing to you. 

Are you a fan of art deco rings? Do you love the earrings that women wore in the 1970s? Reading up on jewelry can help you pinpoint what it is you're searching for. If you can tell us more about what you want, we'll be able to show you some pieces you're sure to love. 

Examine Pieces from all Angles Before You Buy 

Menashe & Sons Jewelers is one of the best options for estate jewelry in Seattle. You can trust us to show you beautiful antique pieces that are in excellent shape. With that said, it's still important to look closely at jewelry before you make a commitment. 

Make sure you examine the pieces that catch your eye from every angle. If you look at these pieces closely, you may notice details that you might have normally missed. If you inspect a piece of jewelry carefully before you make your purchase, you'll be able to confirm that the jewelry is right for you. 

Consider How the Jewelry Will Look On You 

Ideally, jewelry won't stay tucked away in a box. After all, jewelry is meant to be worn! If you're purchasing jewelry for yourself, you should think about the kinds of pieces you like to wear. Are you a fan of rings? Are you looking for a delicate necklace that you can wear to work?

If you're buying jewelry for someone else, you'll want to keep their tastes in mind. Even the most beautiful antique jewelry won't appeal to everyone. Take the time to pick out a piece of jewelry that will truly be appreciated.

Don't Wait to Buy a Piece You Love 

One of the things that makes antique jewelry truly special is its rarity. If you fall in love with a piece, you shouldn't wait too long to add it to your own collection. If you wait too long, someone else could snatch the piece up.

As stated previously, jewelry is designed to be worn, and you shouldn't invest in a piece that you're not crazy about. However, if you do find jewelry that makes your heart skip a beat, you'll want to buy it before someone else does.
