Stephen Silver Unearths Estate Jewelry Treasures
“We have always helped our clients maintain and steward their jewelry collections for the long haul, even across generations,” says Jared Silver, president of Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry.
Complimentary Fine Jewelry Evaluations in Silicon Valley
Helping our clients steward their collections can entail buying or accepting jewelry items in trade, while others commission our family-owned company’s artisans to restyle their pieces into bespoke new jewelry designs. For our experts, every piece tells a story. “Sometimes knowing the context and provenance of a piece can radically change the valuation,” says Jared Silver.
Whether we are evaluating gifted, inherited, aged, or broken items that no longer hold sentimental value, our company’s complimentary, fair market assessments allow clients to make the most informed decision.
Estate Jewelry Shopping: A Sustainable Choice
In addition, estate jewelry acquisitions from our clients offer a pipeline for our artisans to recycle precious resources and restore priceless pieces for resale, and in turn, service growing demand from a new wave of young collectors in the SF Bay area and beyond who are interested in premium secondhand jewelry.
Our Silicon Valley based company’s current preowned offerings include signed masterpieces from renowned makers like Tiffany & Co., Cartier, JAR, and J.E. Caldwell, contemporary preowned styles from Stephen Webster, Oscar Heyman, Robert Demeglio, prime examples of Art Deco era jewelry, and more.
For any would-be antique jewelry shoppers, Stephen Silver, C.E.O. of Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry, advises that transparency is key. “Make sure you are dealing with a reputable, experienced dealer, and consider items with extensive supporting documentation and appraisals where possible.”
