Vintage jewellery is jewellery that is not old enough to be classified as antique (100 years or older), but is also not modern or contemporary. It usually refers to jewellery made after the 1930s and includes Late Art Deco, Retro Era, Hollywood-inspired 1940's jewellery, Jacqueline Kennedy-inspired 1960's jewellery, and even dramatic jewellery from the 1970's and 1980's.
Silver is a white metallic element, harder than gold, softer than copper and second only to gold in malleability and ductility. Represented on the Periodic Table of the Elements by the symbol Ag, silver is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity. Silver is considered one of the noble metals because of it is excellent resistance to oxidation. Historically, silver has played a prominent role in the production of jewelry an objets d'art and is usually alloyed with another metal to harden it enough to maintain the desired shape and details imparted to it.
