Vintage and Handmade Jewelry on Etsy
A unique jewelry collection from Arden Jewelers available now
Do you love vintage jewelry?
Are you always on the hunt for a great find?
Do you want something made just for you?
If you answered “Yes” to any of those questions, we have big news for you. Arden Jewelers has recently opened an Etsy shop! Check it out: Vintage Jewelry on Etsy.
Right now, you will find a nice collection of unique estate pieces and one or two of Angelo’s own designs. We are regularly adding new pieces that you won’t find on our main online jewelry shop or anywhere else. Etsy is the perfect platform to showcase our collection of vintage jewelry, and it’s also a great way to order a custom piece made just for you.
What is Etsy?
If you haven’t heard of Etsy (where have you been?) it’s an online marketplace where craftsman and collectors can sell their antique/vintage and handmade items directly to the public. It’s a fun place to browse just to see what kind of unique and original things are out there. You will find custom ceramics, useful and artistic woodworking, and, of course, jewelry. What’s unique about Etsy is that you won’t find anything that’s mass produced or brand new (unless it’s custom made).
The Arden Jewelers Difference
We have been jewelry buyers in Sacramento for almost 25 years, and in that time we have built up a great collection of estate jewelry. Until now, the only way for you to see many of these pieces has been to come by our shop in Sacramento. With Etsy, we have a great place to put our estate jewelry on display for all to see.
Before we put a piece of jewelry on Etsy (or our own shop) it must go through a rigorous process.
- First, we have our team of experienced jewelers check it thoroughly for any manufacturing defects or issues with wear.
- If we find any issues with the design, construction, or condition of the piece, we will either repair the problem to like-new condition or decide not to sell the piece.
- Second, each piece is thoroughly cleaned and reconditioned.
- Third, expert gemologists identify and appraise all of the gemstones in the piece.
So, when you buy a piece of vintage or estate jewelry from Arden Jewelers through our Etsy, or our website, or our brick-and-mortar jewelry store, you know you are getting a quality piece at an excellent value.
Hi, I have been looking on Etsy to see if I can find items of jewelry that I already own. I would like to know more about the items as most were bought as job lots on eBay. I have some lovely and very unusual vintage costume necklaces but know hardly anything about them, not through the lack of trying.
Hi Teresa, vintage costume jewelry is a very different and exciting world. Who made it and when are very important factors, as well as if there is any proof that a famous person wore the piece. At this time, we stick to fine jewelry so I can’t help a lot with your costume jewelry adventure.
I would swing by your local antique store and see as much high end costume jewelry as you can, so you can get an idea of what the good stuff looks like vs. the cheap knockoffs. One last thing, the condition of costume jewelry is very important. If it’s damaged, sometimes we can fix it and sometimes we can’t. If it can’t be fixed, then its value is extremely diminished.
Hopefully that helps. We wish you the best with your jewelry.
