There are many occasions in life that call for that special item of jewellery and in our experience, rings make the ideal token with which
to celebrate these occasions.

As specialists in antique jewellery we can show you diamond rings set with both modern and old brilliant cut diamonds, the latter dating from the Victorian era. Our sapphire ring collection comprises gemstones in various shades of blue, purple and mauve but also rare yellow and orange hues. Equally unusual are our other gemset rings, which may well feature your birthstone. We have a large selection of eternity rings, many of which are hand made in the Art Deco style, and of wedding bands.

Are you considering buying a diamond ring? Today many people are turning to diamonds for long term value as well as their intrinsic beauty. Gem experts define a diamond's value by the cut, clarity, colour and carat weight but we believe that some diamonds have sex appeal, a quality that is not necessarily reflected in these criteria. We would be delighted to share our expertise with you and are confident that our prices can compete with those quoted on the internet. Please contact us if you wish to view our collection of loose diamonds.

Thank you to all those who have entered our Christmas brochure competition. On page 7 we feature a necklace incorporating two scarabs made of faience, a material similar to porcelain. There are two great revivals in Egyptian style jewellery, one during the second half of the 19th century, and then after the 1922 discovery by Howard Carter of Tutankhamun's nearly intact tomb. The twin scarab necklace would have been created during the first revival.
