Oftentimes, some of the most exquisite and sought after pieces of jewelry are unearthed at estate sales. Part of the mystique of an estate piece is its uniqueness and imagining its history. But many of us don’t want to spend a weekend travelling the state, searching for that one treasure. The jewelry experts at Becker’s Diamonds and Fine Jewelry have the solution. The retailer will now showcase the finest pieces of estate jewelry at its gold buying locations in Bristol, Newington and Manchester, as well as at its flagship store in West Hartford, to fulfill the growing demand for estate jewelry collections. “We’ve seen many couples opting for an antique engagement ring at our West Hartford store and others simply wanting a piece of jewelry that no one else owns,” said Paul Becker, President of Becker’s Diamonds and Fine Jewelry. “We want to make estate jewelry more convenient and accessible for all CT residents by offering vintage to contemporary pieces at our other locations as well.” One of the other benefits of buying estate jewelry is getting a good value as most pieces are nearly half the price of a new jewelry item. The debut of select designer styles at the fall fashion shows contributes to a shopping frenzy for many consumers, but keeping up with the latest jewelry trends can strain even the most fervent fashionista’s budget. Becker’s new estate jewelry showcases offer hundreds of pieces to choose from, including rings, necklaces, bracelets, diamonds, gems, watches, gold, pearls and cameos, across all Victorian, Edwardian, Art Deco and Contemporary design periods. Price ranges from a designer sterling silver bead for $12 to a Red Carpet-worthy necklace for $50,000. Becker says that the most in-demand estate pieces for men are Rolex watches, while women are often seeking rings for themselves and to give as gifts. Becker notes that customers desiring estate jewelry typically fall into three categories:
The Non-conformist, who's always looking for the unique and different.
The Bargain Hunter, who always wants the best look for less.
The Gem Enthusiast/Collector is constantly checking the cases to see the newest displays.
