Is estate jewelry old?

Terminology matters when collecting jewelry.  For example, when a dealer says ‘estate’ without stating the age, that piece may not be very old at all.  Estate jewelry is a piece that is second hand. Should you have an engagement ring purchased a year ago and is now sold at an estate sale, it is estate jewelry. Jewelry labeled estate can be considered antique, vintage or estate.
