"Rare and beautiful jewellery with a story to tell"
Every piece of antique jewellery tells a story and this, in my experience, is what captivates our imagination. I offer a curated collection of exquisitely hand-crafted, rare and beautiful jewellery with a story to tell, specialising in English design from the 19th century. My mission is to uncover and communicate the history, design and symbolism of each and every piece I sell.
A dedicated researcher and specialist with 10 years’ experience within the antique jewellery trade, I am driven to provide the highest level of service through honesty, transparency and expertise. I first discovered a passion for antique jewellery in a role within the jewellery department of an internationally leading London auction house. Captivated by the beauty, history and craftsmanship seen in those pieces crafted over 100 years ago, I then went on to hone my experience and knowledge in a position with a prestigious antique jewellery retailer in Hatton Garden, handling and cataloguing jewellery from the ancient world through to vintage signed pieces. I am a fully qualified FGA and DGA gemmologist and winner of the Gem-A Diamond Prize for diamond grading.
I now travel across the UK and Europe to source beautiful pieces with deep historical meaning and value, to seek out jewellery that was made at the very height of craftsmanship when quality and fine detail were valued above all else. I carry out extensive research and will always provide as much knowledge as possible of the beauty, rarity and history surrounding each and every piece. I hope to create an immersive and informative buying experience to bring antique jewellery to the modern world, and above all to help you find that piece of jewellery that speaks to the heart.
