Sterling silver was being utilized in Colonial America starting as early as 1634, both as currency and common goods.  As the popularity of sterling silver uses spread in the New World, affluent families enjoyed meals on sterling silver flatware. These prized possessions were passed down through the generations. In our fast-paced modern lives, we no longer have time for elaborate meals with our inherited sterling silver flatware. Generally speaking, the millennial generation does not have a need for their inherited flatware.  Have you inherited sterling silver flatware that you no longer have use for?

Sotirio Bulgari founded Bulgari in Rome in 1884. He was inspired by his Greek heritage and the city of Rome; many of the brand’s collections today are still influenced by Greek & Roman history, architecture and culture.

The worth of an estate piece depends on what style is popular at whatever time the owner decides to sell. For instance, the Art Deco period has become fashionable again, so jewelry from that period is worth more because there are more potential buyers. Some classic styles are more resistant to the ebbs and flows of fashion, like pendent necklaces or single-stone engagement ring settings.
