Is Estate Jewelry for Me?

We answer the question with a resounding “YES!!”  Do you like uniqueness?  Do you like beauty?  Do you like incredible value?  Yes to all or one, means that Estate is definitely for you!  One of the things that makes us such an interesting and fresh store to shop in is our incredible Estate Collection.  At Ellis Jewelers in downtown Concord, we spend a lot of time sorting through Estate Jewelry and the pieces that people sell to us for those “diamonds in the rough” (please excuse the obvious jewelry pun….couldn’t resist).  We choose only about 1 out of each 100 pieces as the most unique and beautiful, make sure they are in excellent condition, and place them in our cases for you to enjoy.  Since they have been “loved” before, we are anxious to give them their next happy home.

Unusual Pieces

Estate Platinum Ring



Our Estate Collection is known for its one of a kind pieces.  Without doing too much research, we can usually tell which pieces appear to have been custom made.  The platinum diamond ring shown in the picture embraces a lot of what we consider to be “Estate.”  Besides being gorgeous, it is an incredible antique-styled setting with a 1.25 carat diamond as its center.  Since the metal used was platinum, it could have easily been designed and the diamond set, thus us believing that there’s a good chance it was a custom piece.  It has that old look which remains classic today.




“New” Estate Pieces

Estate Diamond Necklace
Once a Set of Earrings


Many of our sales associates also have the gift of jewelry design as well.  We are able to look at a piece of jewelry and imagine it as something else.  When you have a piece of jewelry that you just are not wearing, whether it’s a ring that you inherited that’s just not your style or you’re an earring person but were given a bracelet as a gift, it’s possible to turn it into something else.  Right now in the store, we have “recreated” several of our Estate pieces.  Recently we acquired several different-styled earrings.  Some were missing its pair.  The one in the picture had been an earring that we reworked to become a beautiful necklace.  The diamond drop necklace features three marquise cut diamonds, each surrounded by a sparking halo.  Truly gorgeous and a piece that was “reinvented” from the forward thinking of our staff member.




Budget Friendly Pieces

Blue Topaz Estate Ring



Our Estate Collection offer such value!  Because we they have been previously owned, these pieces are half, sometimes more, the cost of a piece that is brand new.  And since most of these pieces would have to be custom made anyway because they are just not made anymore, the value is even greater!!  This gorgeous blue topaz and yellow gold ring has an amazing depth to it, making it a fascinating and extremely budget conscious piece.





These pieces are just a fraction of our store selection.  If the thought of these Estate treasures appeals to you or has raised your curiosity, please come down and see what we have.  We are proud of these pieces and are always wanting to show them.

Be the first to be in the know…we are currently planning our first ever Estate Auction in just a couple of months.  The staff at the store has been busy preparing for this new event.  We will be auctioning off many of our gorgeous Estate pieces.  The auction will be available on-line and bids will also be taken over the phone and in person in the store.  More details will be coming in the near future.  It will be a chance to have some fun bidding on the items that you already have had your eye on and purchase them at tremendous value.  We look forward to having you join us in this unique endeavor.

Our Estate Jewelry History

As you may know, one of the things that sets our jewelry store apart from the others is our extensive selection of estate jewelry.  For nearly five years we have been acquiring this jewelry – jewelry that I like to say has been previously “loved” and put out for others to love!  Some of the pieces are old and others are not so much, but all are beautiful.  We spend a lot of time choosing our pieces to make sure they are of the highest quality and uniqueness – pieces that we are sure are clients would appreciate.  The vast majority are pieces that just are not made any more.  You would have to custom design and create these pieces and the price would be quite high!

Our selection is widespread as well.  We have just about every colored gemstone represented.  We have rings, earrings, necklaces, and bracelets.  We have pieces for women AND men.  Our bridal estate jewelry is very extensive too!  We offer engagement ring in white or yellow gold and many wedding bands.

Estate Value

Our estate pieces are offered at an incredible value.  Since they have been previously owned, they are not “new” anymore.  As a result, we can offer them at amazing prices.  Most would be at least double the price if you would be able to find them “new.”  And even more if they were custom designed and made.  With the current 50% off sale on some select pieces, the value is amazing!

Estate Ring Sizing

Do remember, too, that at Ellis Jewelers we size our gold rings complementary.  Being previously owned, estate rings come in a wide variety of different.  We will measure your finger and have our master jewelers adjust the size to ensure that it fits.  So there’s no need to worry that it doesn’t fit.  If you would like to give the ring as gift, it’s simple.  Just present the gift to the lucky person and have him or her come back into the store for a fitting.  Then we’ll take care of the sizing.

Exquisite 6.42ct Diamond Necklace

One of the most beautiful pieces in the sale and offered at an incredible value is the 6.42 ct 14k yellow gold diamond necklace on Page 2.  The diamonds continue all the way around the necklace in a beautiful pattern and come down to a point.  Now this is the kind of necklace you could wear to a formal event, sure.  But how about with a solid t-shirt and jeans??  That’s also how I picture it!  And at the price of $2497.50 for that much carat weight!  It simply must not be passed by.

Don’t miss the chance to own one of these unique pieces at an incredible price.  If you are interested in any of these pieces, please stop by the store or even call us.  We are trying hard to keep the catalog updated with those items “SOLD” but to be sure you can always call so that we can check on the availability of the item.  Do remember, too, that the estate collection is ever changing.  Once you spot a piece it’s wise to purchase it or put it on layaway.  We cannot guarantee that it will stick around and once it’s gone, it’s gone.

Don’t Wait! Come Checkout our Estate!

Beautiful and unique jewelry…at Ellis Jewelers in downtown Concord we pride ourselves in being able to provide our clientele with just those pieces.  One of our most popular and exquisite lines would have to be our Estate Jewelry or as I like to call it “jewelry that’s been loved before.”  It’s a line that we can’t special order, can’t predict it’s inventory, and can’t really recreate.  We never know when and what pieces we will come across but we work hard to find them and provide you with  an extensive collection of rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and brooches from other times and eras.  Our Estate collection is a feast for the eyes made up of some truly timeless and unusual fine jewelry, and our store truly stands apart from others in being able to provide these treasures for you.

Diamond Engagement Rings and Wedding Bands

Our Estate Collection is filled with unusual and affordable diamond engagement rings.  Some are definitely styles that are just not made anymore.  We have them in white gold which is so popular now and in yellow gold which definitely is making a comeback and still appeals to many.  And we offer different shapes and sizes, although the selection is constantly changing.  We also offer many different styles of Estate weddings bands to match either an engagement ring that you already have or the Estate engagement ring that you choose.  If it’s a gents wedding band that you need, we have those in our Estate collection, too.

Unique Diamond Right Hand Rings

This part of our collection is truly unique.  We have very vintage and old styled pieces.  Some with gold filigree, some in platinum, some with colored gemstones and almost all with diamonds.  It’s worth a sightseeing trip just to view some of these one of a kinds.

Colored Gemstone Jewelry

Almost everybody can name their favorite colored gemstone – ruby, sapphire, emerald, purple amethyst – and the list goes on and on.  We have a large selection of Estate jewelry in all different colors and in all the different styles of jewelry, be it ring, necklace, etc.  And if it’s a birthstone that you need to narrow in on for a gift for someone or even yourself, we try really hard to make sure that we have all the months represented in Estate.

Tennis Bracelets

Contrary to belief, tennis bracelets are still in fashion.  If you were hesitating, be reassured.  We know because we are asked to show them everyday at the store.  They are still popular and still such a classic addition to anyone’s fine jewelry wardrobe.  So we make sure that we seek out these bracelets when we are searching for estate pieces.  Our selection is impressive, and we have them in white, yellow, and two-toned gold.

Our Estate Jewelry commands a lot of attention.  We have many regular clients who come in to the store to keep current on our selection.  It changes on a weekly basis.  If you are the least bit curious, please come in and try on some pieces.  Remember, the jewelry comes at a great value, as it has “been loved before.”  And if it’s a ring that tickles your fancy, also remember that we size to whichever finger you need it for complementary!  And finally, remember, that Estate pieces can turnover very quickly.  If you have to have it, be careful that you don’t delay.  These are one of a kinds and can’t be duplicated without extreme cost.  We will help you find the best way to own it, so that the vintage piece can be yours!
