1. Know Your Brands
There's vintage jewelry and then there's vintage designer jewelry. Sure, there's value in your old man's gold accessories, but there's nothing like a quality chain from one of your favorite luxury brands. Of course you have your go-to Chanel and Versace jewelry, but keep in mind that's not all that's out there.
Christian Lacroix made dope chains back in the day, and so did Givenchy. Both HermĂ¨s and Cartier came out with some pretty nice watches, too.
