Antique, Vintage & New Jewellery

Find Your Jewellery Style Statement

Clare Blatherwick FGA DGA offers clients the opportunity to build their collection of antique, vintage and modern jewellery. You may be looking for a one-off piece, perhaps starting a collection, or if already a connoisseur, you may be looking for advice on the consolidation and development of your existing collection.

With many people, their love affair with jewellery begins with an engagement ring, and what an exciting experience it is to find ‘the one’. Perhaps it's an impressive Victorian diamond three-stone ring, a delicate Edwardian sapphire and diamond ring, or maybe a bold and strikingly geometric Art Deco ruby and diamond ring. A spark ignites then, of interest in jewellery of an era. The earrings and bracelets that work so well together may soon join the ring, and a collection is born.

It is said in fashion and design that all things run in cycles and if you wait long enough, things will come back into vogue. The world of jewellery is the same and there is undoubtedly a strong interest in vintage design. If your home is filled with pieces by Eames, Le Corbusier and Castiglioni, then you will be looking for striking vintage jewellery that reflects your personal aesthetic.

Because your jewellery makes an important
statement about your style

Perhaps you have an interest in a maker or designer – for example Cartier, Tiffany, Van Cleef & Arpels, or Belperron, or maybe your interest lies in the design aesthetics and jewellery of a region or country – Scandi minimalism, Cool Britannia or the exuberance of Italy. Or maybe you are fascinated by a jewellery designer or maker whose skill has always been without question, such as Andrew Grima, Alan Gard or John Donald.

Or maybe you want to be the first owner of a future family heirloom. After all, a good pair of diamond stud earrings and that diamond tennis bracelet which goes with everything from jeans to jodhpurs, or your favourite LBD and Jimmy Choos are often the foundation of a jewellery wardrobe.

If a client would like an antique, vintage or modern jewel that helps express their unique style, Clare will source a selection of pieces drawn from the stocks of the best dealers and makers from all over the world. Her experience in the retail of vintage jewellery and in auction mean she can advise on whether an antique or vintage jewel is in original condition and genuinely of the age or by the maker it purports to be, as well as good value. Her experience in contemporary jewellery and extensive address book of goldsmiths and manufacturing jewellers ensures she can advise of quality of manufacture as well as the quality of any diamonds or gemstones. These are all important considerations, regardless of what stage you are in your collecting career.

And without the overheads of a shop Clare can ensure those earrings, or that bracelet, end up being bigger and brighter than you thought possible.
