Antique or unique vintage jewellery that is exquisite, artistic, exotic, aesthetically, beautifully crafted sparkling jewellery, is all I have ultimately ever been passionately interested in, regardless of attribution of the maker or the intrinsic value. I love to see costume jewellery mixed with fine jewellery, and see nothing wrong in wearing both together, complementing one another.
Unusual vintage jewellery can be so stunningly beautiful, set with breathtaking coloured rhinestones in a kaleidoscope of cuts and shapes ranging from cabochons, faceted, faux pearls and clear stones. Over the years, I have acquired and purchased an amazing collection of original, glamorous and unusual costume jewellery, and believe that many of my flea-market finds will become collectable heirlooms of the future in the hands of any vintage visionary.
My shop stocks and displays a huge selection of unique vintage jewellery and antique jewellery from all over the world. I carefully select the pieces for originality, quality workmanship, and to ensure that the piece makes a dramatic signature statement. I have a simple rule...If I do not immediately fall in LOVE with a piece of jewellery...I do not buy it for my shop! Bohemian filigree coloured brooches, original Victorian Venetian beads, Cameos, Edwardian buckles, tiaras, and diamante hair combs are a few of the items in my collections.
