Jewelry Rescues: Spotlight on Valuing Antique & Vintage Metalwork

Antique and estate pieces of great value have been lost to the scrapper because neither seller, nor buyer, realized that the item had value beyond its metal weight. Before selling heirlooms and antique jewelry for their scrap value, consider having the jewelry evaluated by specialists at an auction house, either by making an appointment to bring in pieces, or sending detailed images. Auction houses normally do not charge for the initial review and verbal appraisal of jewelry, as it is an integral part of their business model. Owners can also send jewelry to reputable major auction houses for review through insured mail if an “in person” visit is not possible.

Keeping An Eye On Birmingham

Eye miniatures, commonly known as “lover’s eyes” are miniature hand-painted human eyes set into jewelry. The tradition started with royalty, when the Prince of Wales and his mistress Maria Fitzherbert, exchanged miniature paintings of their own eyes in 1785. The fad spread through Europe around 1800; people gave eyes to lovers, family, or even friends.
