What makes something "estate"?
Quote this post and reply to it Post#1 @ 11-09-03 , 12:17 PM


May be a dumb question...

What exactly constitutes "Estate"???

No matter how much we love them or how beautiful they are, we must realize that these lovely stones are just that...things, they are dust and to the dust they will return. But faith, hope, and love will remain. They are created by God, and they are eternal.

Thespia....I used to think "estate" as pertaining to jewelry to mean that a piece was old. But found out it can mean newish too. It can mean that say...I passed away and my daughter decided to sell to my jeweler or trade with him on some pieces I had. Then, the jeweler takes my pieces and offers them for sale as "estate." or...my estate, meaning what I leave behind, is sold at auction by my heirs through their/my lawyer. Someone, could be a jeweler, or anyone, buys some of these pieces and turns around to sell them to hopefully, make a profit. These are now "estate pieces" and can be old or they can be new. I'm sure other people can give you more definitions, too.

An estate piece of jewelry is one that has been previously owned. It could be 100 years old or custom made a month ago. Time is not a factor.

It may not be bad karma at all. Someone may have just wanted a larger diamond or was getting rid of that regular "maul" diamond that did not shine for a super ideal cut,hearts and arrows diamond that looked like it was on fire.

Estate is certainly related to "what you have."

This is why older men are not too enameled of estate surgery.

Diamondbob -- Is there a certain dollar value that must apply to a piece to be considered "estate"? Why is it that the majority of "estate" pieces are very $$$$$$$?
