One of my recent favourites! A three stone old cut diamond ring, 0.40 ctw, set in platinum and dating to the late Art Deco era.
Antique opal and diamond ring set in platinum. Dating to the Art Nouveau era, and a lovely ring!
Art Deco oringinal circa 1930s platinum setting with baguette and round diamonds, set with a modern 0.92 ct tanzanite. At size G.5 / 3.75 this would make an amazing engagement ring for a small fingered lady.

About

A hand-chosen collection of antique and vintage, fine and costume jewellery.

Addy's Vintage is run by Erin & Kris. Erin's magpie tendencies lead her to collecting jewellery, and several years ago, with jewellery box lids barely able to close, she started selling her collection online. Together Erin & Kris work hard to consider all aspects of purchasing and giving jewellery, whether it's a gift to yourself or another!

We focus mainly on Art Deco jewellery, loving the mixing of metals, use of bright jewels, and the engraved and beaded details so expertly carved into each piece. Each item of jewellery is like a little work of art and something we'd be happy to own. By sticking to this basic premise we are able to provide our customers with an item they will love and cherish for many years to come.

Being based in London we are able offer a range of antique and vintage jewellery sourced throughout Europe and North America offering the best of the distinctive styles from both regions.

We are unable to show our entire collection in our Etsy shop. If you are looking for something specific, please feel free to contact us by email, phone or through our website. We have many more items in stock than are listed and may be able to find pieces based on your requirements should that be necessary.

    Owner, GIA AJP & GP

    My interest in jewellery started as a hobby and over the last decade I've worked hard to acquire the knowledge & skills to turn it into my full time career. I'm now working on my graduate gemmologist diploma. In my spare time I enjoy rock climbing.

    Owner

    There's not much this man doesn't do! With experience in website design, graphic design & running a family business, most of his work is behind-the-scenes, but don't be surprised if he responds to your query. In his spare time Kris plays guitar.

If you are in doubt as to whether your jewellery item will make it to you for your event please contact us. We want to make sure that your piece arrives on safely and on time!

Please make sure that your address is correct. Any items which are returned due to an incorrect address will be re-posted at the buyer's expense. If the buyer no longer wants the returned item, the cost of the item, but not the postage will be refunded.

Because most packages will need to be signed for, we may not ship to PO Boxes. If you require your item to be shipped to a PO Box please contact us before purchase to check if we are able ship your item to your PO Box.
Refunds and Exchanges
Vintage items are used items. All items are as pictured and described. If you have any questions please ask before purchase. Our pieces do not come with a certificate or appraisal unless stated in the listing. We recommend that appraisals be carried out by a qualified independent appraiser, someone who does not buy or sell jewellery and therefore has no vested interest in the outcome of their findings.

We accept returns / you may exercise your right to cancel within 14 days of you receiving the item. The item must be in its original condition and can be returned for any reason. Outside the EU shipping both from Addy's Vintage and return shipping to Addy's Vintage is not refundable. The cost of standard rate shipping, £10 for items sent by Royal Mail & £65 for items sent by FedEx, will be deducted from the refund. Within the EU shipping at the standard rate will be refunded, however, the buyer is responsible for return shipping.

We are unable to accept returns on items which have been purchased on a lay-away / payment plan.

Pieces must be returned with their inventory tag still on and in the ring or jewellery box in which they were shipped. It is recommended that you return the item fully insured as Addy's Vintage cannot be responsible for items lost or damaged on their way back to us.

If you are returning an item from outside the EU the original customs label, CN22 or CN23, or the original Commercial Invoice if the item was sent FedEx, must be adhered it to the outside of the returned package. The package must also be returned from the country it was sent to. Please contact us for exact instructions. Failure to return the piece following our instructions may result in us being charged a non-refundable customs clearance fee and VAT at 20%. If these charges are incurred by Addy's Vintage due to incorrectly labelling an item during a return or returning it from a different country than it was originally posted to we will deduct these costs from the customer's refund. No one wants to unnecessarily donate money to the government so please contact us!

We are NOT able to accept a return if the item has been altered in any way. If the item was altered by our jeweller, such as sizing, then we will guarantee the sizing or alteration but are unable to accept a return as the piece is now considered to be a custom item. We cannot accept a return or be held responsible for any work done on a piece by someone who is not employed by Addy's Vintage. This includes resizing or repair work completed by another jeweller.

If something is lost in transit, arrives broken, or you have concerns about a piece please contact us immediately.
Additional policies and FAQs
LAY-AWAY/ LAY-BY:
For items over £300, we require a third down, a third in 30 days, and the final third due within 60 days from the date of purchase. The item will ship once all payment have cleared.

For items between £100 and £300 we require 20% down with the balance due within a month.

If a payment is late or you need more time please contact us. We allow a 5 day grace period to make a payment after its due. If we don't hear from you and the plan is cancelled we will refund the amount paid minus a fee of 15%. We really don't enjoy cancelling payment plans so please contact us! We are unable to accept returns on items which have been purchased on a lay-away / payment plan.

We are able to hold items for 2 days without a deposit.


SIZING:
The amount that something can be sized depends on how decorated the piece is, how far around the band or ring the gems go, what type of metal it is, and if it's been previously sized. Resizing more than what is recommended may put additional pressure on the design work and gems, potentially damaging them. I am happy to discuss resizing and answer any questions. I cannot be held responsible for resizing or work done on a piece by someone who is not employed by Addy's Vintage.


CARE, MAINTENANCE & CLEANING:
Vintage and antique jewellery and conversion jewellery can be fragile and is designed to be worn with care. All jewellery that we sell is in wearable condition and can be worn daily but is not indestructible.

To care for your jewellery we recommend that you remove it before doing any chores including washing-up, laundry, cooking and baking, gardening, exercising, showering, etc. Chemicals, such as bleach, chlorine, alcohol, perfumes, hair products, etc may cause irreparable damage to some gemstones, especially turquoise, opals, and pearls. Regular cleaning and checking and maintaining of settings and gemstones will ensure that your item stays in good condition. If you have questions about how to care for you jewellery piece to make it last for generations, please ask, we're always happy to provide advice and guidance.
