Definition of Condition:
This guide is an attempt to demystify some of the words I use to rate the condition of the jewelry I’m listing. Most vintage jewelry is used and may exhibit signs of wear, which is normal due to the age of some pieces. I describe each piece individually and will point out any flaws I find. I also usually increase the contrast in my photos, so any flaws will be more pronounced. That said, here are some overarching descriptors and what they might mean inside an auction:
Mint / Perfect: Self explanatory – RARE
Near Mint / Perfect: Like new – no noted flaws
Excellent: Minor flaws which do not compromise the piece
Very Good: Minor flaws, easily repairable and wearable flaws. Most items fit in this category
Good: Noted minor flaws, most likely repairable, wearable with care or after repair
Fair: Noticeable noted flaws, some significant, possibly wearable or repairable
As Found: A piece that is damaged beyond repair, recycle parts,valuable for research or for further study.
Care of Sterling jewelry: Patina is what gives older silver pawn jewelry its character. That?s why in our shop, we never remove patina ? we let the new owner decide if they want the item to show its age or to be shiny. Authentic patina increases the value of old Silver, Gold, Brass and Copper pieces. It is not verdigris.
We often get asked about resizing cuffs. We suggest that you check with a local Silver Smith to resize or reshape your cuffs and rings.
ALL the items in my shop are vintage or antique and has been previously worn. Items will show wear commensurate with their age and any major flaws will be noted. Many enlarged close, detailed photos are taken for you to view. Gemstones have been tested with the Presidium Gem Tester.
IMPORTANT INFO: Although I do my best, Photographing jewelry for size reference can be a little tricky, and often items look larger on screen. Colors can also vary depending on computers. So, please refer to the description of color and measurements for actual size. All items are described to the best of my knowledge. If you have any questions, please feel free to convo me You, the buyer, are the final judge after viewing the photos and reading the description.
Most items have been cleaned, but there may be some additional cleaning that will need to be done to meet the standards of the buyer.
I do recommend that if you purchase earrings, to disinfect the hardware with several wipes of alcohol (be careful to avoid the stones). NOTE: Clip on Earrings may need to be tightened or loosened, according to the size of ear lobes. You can obtain an “earring key” online at jewelry supply shops, or take it to your local jewelry store.
