Libby’s Heirloom Necklace: A Story of Discovery, History, Sale

Category:  Appraisal
Posted on:  March 23, 2023 by Jaime Polk

The story of Libby’s Heirloom Necklace is a testament to the power of family history and the value of having trusted professionals to appraise and broker the sale of precious heirlooms.

It all began when a customer approached 21C Designs, asking them to appraise a necklace that had been passed down through generations of her family. The necklace was a stunning piece of jewelry from 1915, with two large diamonds, one almost 11 carats and the other 2 carats.
After several weeks of appraising the necklace and delving into its history, the team at 21C Designs had an exciting revelation to share with the customer. The customer had been unaware of the necklace’s true value, and the team’s discovery left her stunned.
While it was a difficult decision for the customer to part with such a precious family heirloom, she eventually decided to sell it through the help of 21C Designs. The team brokered a deal with an international auction house, and the necklace was sold to a new owner. While it was bittersweet to see the necklace leave the customer’s family, the team was excited about the new journey for the necklace and the opportunity to share its captivating story with others.
The story of Libby’s Heirloom Necklace highlights the importance of having reliable and knowledgeable professionals to assess your jewelry. At 21C Designs, the team is committed to not only offering appraisal services but also uncovering the stories behind each piece of jewelry they assess. For the team, it’s about more than just jewelry – it’s about the memories and connections that are intertwined with each piece.
