Shopping for antique jewelry has an added advantage. It acquaints you to the history and culture of the era to which it belongs. You would be interested to know how the fashion of wearing delicate dresses in the Georgian era favored the use of small, light jewelry. Pendants with miniature paintings of loved ones were also prevalent in the late-Georgian era. In a similar way, jewelry belonging to each era is a reflection of the changing fashions. So, with every piece of antique jewelry, you also buy memories of a long lost era.Armed security guards in jewelry have become the issue of debate in security insider circles, especially in Orange County and LOs Angeles. After many jewelry stores were robbed in the LOs Angeles and Orange County area recently phones were ringing at many security companies. Jewelry business owners want to make sure that the trauma of being robbed by armed perpetrators does not repeat itself. Many jewelry businesses today have very lax security protocols, which is alarming considering the high value merchandise they deal with.
Call it ignorance or deception, but people out there feel that Heishi shells are the same as Puka shells. Heishi shells are those that are smoothed and ground flat with circular edges. A hole is manually punched for the string to fit in. These shells are polished with leather belts and are available in rainbow colors. On the other hand, Puka shells are only available in white and beige shades. You should beware of sellers selling Heishi and clam shells as Puka shells.
Jewelry was also heavily layered. For example, a necklace would usually have more than a single string. This was particularly so because jewelry was a sign of wealth. Apart from a single piece of jewelry being layered, more than a single piece of jewelry was also worn together - more than a couple of necklaces, several bracelets, etc.
● The piece should be ornate, have an elaborate design, and sparkling stones. Though there are contemporary pieces that have these too, check for patination and you'll have a winner.
