Sometimes, during this journey of curating vintage jewelry, we find what (we like to call) "needles in a haystack." These are pieces of designer antique jewelry produced from some of the finest, most renowned, jewelers the world has ever known. These jewelers include Tiffany and Co, Cartier, J.E. Caldwell , Oscar Heyman , Van Cleef and Arpels, Bulgari, Harry Winston and more. Many of these famous jewelers started out, in the late 1800's and 1900's, as single business owners with a goal to make beautiful jewelry. They specialized in all aspects of the diamond and jewelry business. Designer jewelry consists of engagement rings, bracelets, necklaces, and earrings, all in metals such as platinum, white, yellow and rose gold. Every piece of designer jewelry has a signature, or hallmark, from the specific jeweler identifying the company. These maker's mark signatures, on engagement rings, are stamped on the shank. Some jewelers will just use a number as their makers mark. If you are not able to determine if your piece of jewelry is a designer piece, you can send your jewelry to your jewelry shop and they should be able to confirm the mark We love vintage jewelry!
