For nearly 50 years our shop at 40a West Street, Alresford has dealt and traded in antique jewellery and for the past 20 years it has been my speciality as well. Every piece that we sell is a ‘one off’. We never see the same item twice and that makes life as antique jewellery specialists fascinating, interesting and varied.
So what is the attraction with antique jewellery? Style, beauty and elegance are just three adjectives that describe perfectly why antique jewellery is so appealing. Craftsmanship is important too. Timeless designs that combine form and function; mostly hand made using skills and techniques that are seldom seen these days. When buying antique or pre-owned jewellery condition is everything. An item of vintage jewellery should be worn which means that everything must be in good order. We make sure that every piece that we sell is sympathetically restored to ensure that it can be worn and enjoyed for years to come.
We source pieces from all over the country so our stock is always changing. Many of these items are featured on this site – if you have a particular piece of jewellery in mind but don’t see it here do let us know and we will try and find it for you.
We are always looking for interesting period pieces to add to our stock – if you have similar items that you are looking to sell why not bring them to us. If we are interested we will make you an offer.
