We’re all about one of a kind fine jewelry, whether made locally or found and collected. That’s why we are so excited to share our latest collection of antique and estate jewelry with you! Each piece in our new estate jewelry collection is one of a kind and hand selected by Lauren.
Each quarter we’ll be releasing a new edit of estate jewelry. What is estate jewelry? Estate jewelry is any jewelry that has been loved and owned before. An estate piece might be from the 1800s, or it may have been manufactured just last year. As long as it's been owned and loved before, it qualifies as estate jewelry!
How do we find our collection of antique and estate jewelry in Philadelphia? We work with our trusted network of antique jewelry dealers and individual sellers to collect and curate our collection. Each and every one of our pieces displays fine craftsmanship, is endlessly wearable, and just has that special something. We’re always on the hunt for fine jewelry pieces that catch our eye that we know you’ll adore. We're drawn to pieces with a strong story to tell and classic design.
What’s so great about estate jewelry? First, postconsumer jewelry is much easier on the earth. We love that we can offer beautiful things without increasing the demand for diamond and gold mining. Second, antique pieces (100+ years old) in particular display rich character inherent in hand-made pieces. We love slightly mismatched Old European Cut diamonds and the variations in hand-engraving. Lastly, we love the look of estate jewelry! From geometric Art Deco rings to bold rose gold pieces from the 1940s, there’s something special about wearing art from history. We especially love antique engagement rings.
Every 3 months, we’ll refresh our assortment. That means if you see something you love - don’t wait! Every piece is one of a kind and we know our pretties won’t last long. Click here to view the collection and stay tuned for our next release on June 1!
