Estate jewellery does not necessarily mean that a piece of jewellery is old, only that it is pre-owned. Collectable and rare jewellery usually means a piece that is no longer in production and antique period jewellery is a term that broadly covers jewellery from a specific chronological era.
Antique and vintage jewellery value depends on current market trends, condition of the item, the rarity of the design and the designer.

Authentic Rare vintage pearl and lapis bar pin

Item No: Vin600
Authentic Rare Vintage Signed TIFF&CO Genuine Pearl and Lapis Bar Pin. A rare precious piece of jewellery. The tiny Lapis and Pearls are in perfect condition and so rare to find these days. The pin is Hallmarked in block "TIFF&Co STR". I believe this pin to be around the early 1920's. It's a high quality design and could be the only one in existence as I haven't seen one like it before with this Hallmark. The bar pin is just under 2 inches long. This lovely bar pin would look really nice on a lapel, tie or attached to a scarf.

Rare antique vauxhall glass brooch

Item: Vin647
Rare Antique Vauxhall Glass Brooch. Vauxhall glass was produced in the UK in the early 1800s and is very rare. Period: Circ 1800s. Hand made early craftsmanship at it's best, the brooch has brass stampings with beveled and mirrored red glass fern leafs and really catches the light. Size: approx 3.5 inches long X 1.5 inches wide. Condition: This is a very old pre-owned piece of rare jewellery, considering age the brooch is in pretty good condition. A nice find for a collector of antique jewellery.

Victorian Mourning Jewellery
This beautiful example is made from highly reflective Vauxhall Mirror Glass. In the language of flowers and mourning the fern leaf had a number of special meanings. Sorrow, Victory (of the soul over the mortal body) and Resurrection. They were most often worn as a symbol of lost love and perhaps it was worn as a remembrance of a lost love by a loving wife who had lost her husband.
