We are a family business and pride ourselves on offering a personal service. Sentimental souls, there is nothing we enjoy more than helping our customers find that perfect vintage or antique piece that sets their heart aflutter! Approachability and honesty are our cornerstones, and you can be assured that every item is carefully sourced; cleaned and polished; photographed; presented; gift wrapped and posted with the utmost fondness and care. We are members of the Society of Jewellery Historians and The National Association of Jewellers.
Severely bitten by the collecting bug, we are magpies by nature and vintage jewellery has been our lifetime's love. Over the twenty years we have worked together our mutual love of antique jewellery and history, the enjoyment of our wonderful job and the amazing people we meet through it melded our future together. We had dreamt of having our own shop for many years, and finally, with the support and love of our families, in 2016 we were able to take the steps we needed to create the business we envisioned. Curious as to how we came by our name? Read our blog article....
