About UsBuying antique and vintage jewelry can be risky if you don't have the knowledge to accurately assess its value. Barbara Smith Estate and Fine Jewelry eliminates that risk.
Every piece on our site is selected for quality craftsmanship and enduring value by Barbara Smith, an antique and fine jewelry expert with over 35 years of experience in the field. Formerly the manager of the estate jewelry and appraisal departments at Tiffany & Company, Ms. Smith is also a Graduate Gemologist from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), the world leader in gem training and evaluation. In addition, she holds a BA in art history from the University of Virginia and an MBA from Northwestern University.
This extensive background gives Ms. Smith the ability to assess both the quality of a piece's intrinsic materials and its historical value, so you can have complete confidence that every item of jewelry on our site is both authentic and fairly priced.
