My vintage love...
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.....
Needless to say, I still love shoes but jewellery is my main fascination and I can't believe how lucky I am to be working with something I love!
I started over 25years 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. Now my main focus is traveling around to source my stock to sell online.
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.
Visit my website www.vintagejewelbox.co.uk
and our second Etsy shop www.etsy.com/uk/antiquejewelbox
Owner, Curator, Photographer
I wake up in a morning and can't believe how lucky I am to spend my days searching out sparkly treasure! Twenty five years selling antique and vintage jewellery and I'm still completely hooked...
We specialise in Antique and Vintage engagement rings and jewellery from all eras, 1880's to 1980's, but especially the Art Deco period 1920's 1930's which is my personal favourite!
All the items are Antique, Vintage or Estate so they have been used or worn and may show some wear commensurate with age.
I will always point out any obvious faults but please ask questions before you buy if you are unsure about anything.
I am based in the UK but will happily ship WORLDWIDE.

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.
