Carol was a pleasure to deal with which makes the process of choosing something so special all the more ! The photo doesn't do justice to this beautifully crafted piece. I cannot wait to purchase more from her shop. Cannot recommend her highly enough. Solid seller, communication impeccable and an effortless process on our end.

A piece of simple beauty and excellent quality. Arrived safely to me in Australia, perfectly and beautifully boxed - a pleasure to open and discover the contents! Just as described in lovely, shining condition. Very prompt and reliable service. Carol is an asset to Etsy. Thank you Carol.

A carefully selected collection of English antique & vintage rings & jewellery...

My love of jewellery comes from when I was a child growing up...
Both my grandmother's would let me dress up in their high heeled shoes and raid their jewel boxes to festoon myself with rings, beads and big sparkly brooches.....
I started over 25 years ago selling Victorian and early 20th century costume jewellery and quickly added fine jewellery to the mix. I have stood all the major Antique Fairs in the UK including the prestigious 'Antiques For Everyone' at the Nec in Birmingham.
My main focus now is traveling around the UK to source unique pieces to sell online. I only buy items in really good wearable condition and often they are pieces I would like to keep myself!
I aim to provide the same high level of customer service you would receive if you bought from me at a show. So, if you have any questions about my items please don't hesitate to ask.

I try to describe things honestly and will point out any obvious flaws. I provide good clear images which you can 'zoom' and these help form part of the description so please view them carefully and ask any questions if you are unsure.
I check all items listed carefully but the very nature of antiques and vintage means I have no idea of the future lifespan of the item and very occasionally faults can come to light that were impossible to anticipate so regretfully I cannot offer any guarantees.

Frequently asked questions

Diamond Certificates and Appraisals

Our diamond rings do not come with certificates or appraisals unless stated in the listing. This is quite commonplace with antique and vintage rings in the UK. I have over 20years experience selling jewellery and I carefully test, check and measure everything with professional equipment.

Ring Sizing

I don't offer a re-sizing service but I am happy to offer advice as to whether a ring may be altered to your required size.
You can use this conversion chart for all International sizing standards.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All items come with a new presentation box and rings are also gift wrapped. We package with care so your item arrives in perfect condition.

Payment Plans & Layaway

I'm happy to offer a payment plan/layaway on any item over £100. Payment terms range between 2-6 months depending on price.
Please ask for details!
