Question: Whats the best way to date costume jewelry?

Even the style of the label or tags on costume jewelry pieces can help you date the pieces. Hang tags, embossed or engraved makers marks, stamps, and attached logo rounds are just some of the ways costume jewelry designers marked their pieces over the years.

What should I look for when buying costume jewelry?

Look for Quality Look for signs of quality such as substantial weight, smooth plating, and sparkling stones. Certain manufacturers are known for creating jewelry of quality as well: Eisenberg, Schiaparelli, Miriam Haskell, and Schreiner are a few names to look for when purchasing high-end pieces.

How can I get my jewelry appraised for free?

Often, a local jeweler, gold or diamond exchange or pawn shop near you will provide an appraisal for free, especially if you are a regular customer. Keep in mind that an appraisal is often inflated above what you might pay for the same item at a jewelry store, but can be useful for insurance or tax purposes.
