I have what some would consider myself included a borderline obsession with vintage jewelry and antique jewelry. I have been using statement jewelry
and accessories to bring light to my wardrobe for many many years. Up until about a year ago I had been feeding my obsession by shopping at several
resell shops in the area. That was when a friend spotted some beautiful jewelry pieces online that were to be available at an estate sale operated by
Texas all estate sales. I attended the sale and was blown away at the huge vintage and antique jewelry selection available at less than wholesale prices.
No more middleman for me. Texas all estate sales is now and will continue to be my go to for all my jewelry obsession needs.

It is common for people to be lining up outside our estate sales in Travis County, hours before they start, in order to be first in line to have the best opportunity to buy the antique furniture and accessories.
Then around 2000 the interest in vintage furniture brought a whole new crowd.
The past few years a new group has been generated and they are after the antique and vintage jewelry!
Often we will get a buyer who wants to buy the entire lot in hopes of a bulk discount, and others are looking for something specific. Some are also buying for resale and others are collecting and holding for increased value as time goes by. Jewelers are common at our estate sales and they are looking for everything from scrap Gold, to precious stones, semi precious stones, Rolex watches, Coin jewelry, and more.
Some of our favorite pieces that we have seen over the years include a 20 carat Tanzanite with round and baguette diamonds all the way around the stone. It looked like it had never been worn as it was so beautifully cared for. It also came with the GIA report and orginal receipt too!
Another memorable piece was a 6 carat Emerald with diamond baguettes and rounds as well as pave diamonds down the sides. So stunning, it looked like it came right out of the Neiman Marcus catalog.
On another occasion, we had on consignment a huge 7 carat Yellow diamond cocktail ring that looked like a $100,00.00 piece. The seller was asking just $7000.00 as their calculations for jewelry was always just $1000.00 a carat! It was a win-win for both buyer and seller.
Another brand name we cannot get enough of is vintage Chanel jewelry or clothing. We have regular clients that will crawl through glass to have the chance at these items. If you are thinking of selling any Chanel items we have immediate buyers. If you are a buyer of Chanel contact us and we will notify you when we have Chanel items becoming available. The most common is Chanel earrings, Chanel, brooches, Chanel scarves, Chanel bags, and Chanel wallets, but we have seen everything.
One thing that we often hear from buyers why they love vintage jewelry so much is the way large diamonds were cut in the past. Years ago diamonds were cut wider and less shallow so the diamonds, once set, look much larger. A one carat diamond would appear to be 1.5 or 1.75 carats instead. A jeweler that often attends our estate sales in Austin, tells us this is called the "chissler cut", although he might have been joking!!
