Can someone define "Estate Jewellery" for me? I've been puzzled
by the term for some time now. Thanks.
That can mean from an estate, such as when someone dies and the
heirs dump the jewelry to an auction house or other reseller, but it
can also pretty much include anything that's more used that brand
new. You get tired of some old looser of a piece of jewelry you
shouldn't have bought from the Home shopping channels, and sell it as
scrap to your local jeweler, and instead of scrapping it, perhaps he
cleans it and puts it out for sale again. It will get labeled
"estate"... The term gets used a lot since it sounds so much better
than just plain "used".
Anther definition goes:
If I can buy enough of this stuff dirt cheap, and sell it for enough
of a markup, then perhaps I'll be able to move out of my apartment,
buy some real estate, and live on an estate...
