Material Tests for sterling silver. Antique and vintage pieces have been passed through generations, so its not often you find a piece that has been maintained in its near-original condition.Such pieces are not only higher in value, but they are also more collectible, as they carry the history of past owners but do not show it. They reveal what the piece would have looked like when it was first created, giving us an insight into a bygone era. On Handmade or Hand-Carved Jewelry. Handmade or hand-carved jewelry is valued because it is, by default, one of a kind. Unlike machine-made pieces, a handmade piece can never be replicated in the exact same way, and so they will always reveal the at-the-moment intent of the individual maker. Often, the pieces have a distinctively visceral feel, as though you can sense the painstaking labor that went into every aspect. _gsrx_vers_1251 GS 8.2.1 (1251).
