How to Determine an Authentic Vintage Antique Necklace
There are quite a number of vintage necklaces for sale in both physical jewelry stores and online shops. It's often very difficult to distinguish from a genuine antique necklace piece and a good reproduction. But how can you make sure that this online vintage necklace and other antique necklaces for sale are authentic? Here are some key tips you can follow to ensure the legitimacy and quality of antique and vintage jewelry: Learn more about the seller - When buying antique jewellery online, it would be safe and wise if you thoroughly check both the seller and the pieces they sell. One of the easiest ways to determine if the antique pieces being sold are authentic is when they are not sold in bulk. Vintage pieces of jewelry, such as an antique pearl necklace, are one-of-a-kind, after all.
- Contact the seller and ask the right questions - It is highly recommended that you reach out to the seller of the antique necklace that you want to buy. Engage in first-hand interaction with them and ask them the right questions that can help you determine if they are legitimate sellers. Honest sellers are always ready to assist you and provide you with the right information about the pieces of jewelry they are selling.
- Spot the “Patina” - This is what antique dealers call the shine or luster that is results from many years of use. A chain and pendant necklace may have developed a patina over time, giving away its age.
- Look for the maker’s mark - Antique jewellery that is over a hundred years old is made before the 1950s. This item and other similar pieces are marked by the maker, commonly with their initials and the year it was made.
- Evaluate the price - If the price is just “too good to be true,” then you may want to rethink about purchasing the item. Valuable pieces such as vintage necklaces and antique jewellery are made to last through many years and carry a rich heritage within it, cranking up their value significantly. These are rarely sold at low prices. Always verify the authenticity of an antique piece.
