One of the most common misconceptions about estate pieces is that they are outdated or old fashioned - but that is simply not true. When it comes to the estate collection at Long's Jewelers, there is an extremely wide variety of jewelry, suitable for all styles and tastes. Below are some modern pieces you might not have expected from our estate collection. Not all estate pieces are created equal, and sometimes finding a modern treasure or a diamond in the vintage rough can be half the fun of estate shopping!
Simple pendants and layered necklaces are all the rage right now. Who knew these cute and current pieces came from our estate collection? You can wear a long necklace with one pendant like the John Hardy Bamboo pendant on the right, pair a charm with a dainty chain as seen on the far left or you can pair a cute and delicate diamond pendant with a layered chain to add definition like the pair shown in the middle. Today's trends are all about picking pieces that are cute and simplistically beautiful that can take your everyday look effortlessly into night and these estate necklaces do just that.
Hoop earrings are having a huge moment right now. Fortunately, hoop earrings are not new to being in the trend spotlight and earrings from past decades have made their way to our estate collection. They say trends come and go and that is certainly true when it comes to hoops making it easier for us and you to stay on trend without breaking the bank. Besides hoops, you can never go wrong with some simple studs, which we have plenty of in our estate collection, as well. Go classic with a pair of diamond stud earrings, or lean into your own sense of style by swiping up our sweet tanzanite studs or our yellow gold sapphire and diamond earrings shown above - hurry while they're still available!
The Cartier love bracelet is an extremely timeless and sought after piece. With the accented diamonds, this version of the love bracelet is elegant and yet still very much on trend. With its estate status, you can also get this beautiful, high value and modern piece for a fraction of its original cost! And don't forget to check out our extensive assortment of bangles from the estate collection too - you can never have too many bangles! Bangles are perfect for when you want to add something simple to a few extravagant bracelets and turn it into a stack. They are classic and neutral so they don't distract from your other bracelets but still add that fun bit of flair you might have been missing. And lucky for you, there are more than enough to choose from at each one of our five locations.
Stackable rings are all we're seeing these days and our Estate Collection is no exception. To make this look work you need fun, dainty rings and lots of them. Luckily, there are more than enough rings that fit this description to choose from in our pre-owned rings selection. There are Goa crossover rings, rose gold rings, yellow gold, white gold, eternity bands, rings with diamonds, rings without, and plenty of statement rings with stones that you can style sparingly with a few stackables.
"Estate" doesn't always mean out-dated, and we can guarantee that these fun and modern treasures are far from what your grandma might've owned. Stop by a Long's store today and see for yourself-you wont regret it!
