Tips for Buying Vintage Brooches

  • Only buy costume jewelry that is in more or less mint condition.
  • Look at the back of the piece of jewelry, if there is green rust, it means the jewelry has already been damaged.
  • Look for signatures to verify authenticity.
  • Extremely worn plating, missing stones, missing parts, darkened or cloudy rhinestones, clasps that don't work properly, and chipped or scratched enamel all lower the value of a vintage piece.
  • Look for signs of quality such substantial weight, smooth plating and sparkling stones.
  • Avoid obvious repairs such as sloppy soldering and haphazard stone replacements.
