Beautiful necklace, nicely packaged, perfect transaction. Thank you
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 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...
I specialise in Antique and Vintage engagement rings and jewellery from all eras, but especially the Art Deco period 1920's ~ 1930's which is my personal favourite!
All the items are Antique, Vintage or Estate so please bear in mind they have been used or worn and may show some wear commensurate with age.
We only buy pieces in good condition that we would be happy to own ourselves and always point out any obvious faults. Please ask questions before you buy if you are unsure about anything.
I am based in the UK and 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.
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.
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!
