About De Vroomen Brand:
Dutch goldsmith Leo De Vroomen and British jewelry designer Ginnie De Vroomen found their company De Vroomen Design over fifty years ago. Today the brand is internationally recognized for its strong sculptural design and artistic jewelry pieces.
Unusual gemstones and bright enamel colors became De Vroomen’s signature. The brand’s pieces are also well-known for their uncompromising quality and high-skilled craftsmanship. As to the enamel work, De Vroomen often use cloisonne and champlevé techniques that make their jewelry stand out. Also, the maker often applies repoussé work to showcase the texture and warmth of gold.
If you are looking for something different, unusual, and original in jewelry world, then De Vroomen is your brand. Favoring to create jewelry pieces which reflect their own artistic vision, De Vroomen never follows common fashion trends and make their own statement instead.
About Estate Jewelry:
Buying jewelry online might be challenging. The quality of the making has not gotten better over the time while the design is getting more and more generic. Add ever rising prices and you could end up with not finding anything suitable. To purchase a high-quality jewelry piece for an obtainable price consider buying estate items.
- Quality vs Quantity
Estate pieces mostly belong to the times when jewels were handmade and not mass produced. There were simply less jewelry makers at that time and they cared about their reputation. Opposed to the current fast fashion approach, life pace was in general slower. That allowed makers to take more time to craft truly quality pieces.
- Fair-Priced vs Overpriced
Designer pieces aka signed pieces can cost multiple times more than their unsigned equivalents. We pay not only for an item itself but also for the brand advertising campaigns and all the buzz the name is creating. Prices for estate jewelry form differently and mostly depend on the cost paid by a seller. A pre-owned Bulgari ring and a brand-new Bulgari ring have a very appealing price difference. Ask your local jewelry store about a retail price of the desired piece and you’d be pleasantly surprised.
- True value vs Seasonal rush
Pre-owned jewelry retains its value. Over the time it gets rare and more expensive. Think purchasing a new car that loses its value right after you left your dealer versus buying a vintage vehicle.
