Last summer I came across the Antique Jewellery Company on the internet when I was planning a visit to London.
As some items posted on their website attracted me so much, I contacted them by e-mails finding them very helpful. In September when I actually visited their shop at Grays and saw Olly and Matt, they were ready to show the items for my interests; I found them looking more beautiful than I had imagined. Then I bought a Victorian brooch.
Recently I have bought a fabulous Victorian ring via their web site. They were very kind and their responses were very quick. I really love the ring!

I found The Antique Jewellery Company when looking for a locket for my daughter’s 18th birthday.
The pictures of all of the pieces are crystal clear and I found a beautiful Edwardian silver enameled locket, which I bought immediately.
The service is spot on, right down to the handwritten compliment slip which came with my purchase (how many other companies take the time to say a personal thank you for a web purchase these days?)The locket arrived very quickly in the post and it surpassed the pictures on the website.
I have no hesitation in recommending Olly and her shop to anyone and it will be my first port of call in the future when I’m looking for something special.

My words can't possibly do justice to the Antique Jewelry Company. It is my go-to site for Victorian and Georgian jewelry - the images, the descriptions and the selection of pieces are a smorgasbord of colorful delights. For any jewelry lover, The Antique Jewelry Company is a gem of a find! Having purchased a couple of pieces, the delight of receiving them pales in comparison to the actual pieces themselves. Both Olly and Matt are beyond gracious with their time, their expertise and their customer service. I can only hope to be the recipient of more pieces in the very near future.

I discovered the Antique Jewellery Company whilst looking for a special pair of cufflinks. I found a pair of beautiful antique Cartier cufflinks which I then purchased, and am hugely pleased with! It was a pleasure to deal with Olly who answered my queries promptly, and took time and trouble to give a wonderful, personal service. I shall certainly recommend you to my friends, and look forward to finding other wonderful, individual objects from you!

If you go from Japan to Scotland, from London to Los Angeles and mention Grays Antique Centre the chances are that someone will say 'I have been there and do you know Olly by any chance?'. When you have been in business for a certain length of time you meet a large number of people and a good reputation means your name gets passed around. You can do no better than spending time with Olly who will happily share her expertise and knowledge with you and make buying a piece of period jewellery a pleasure.
I am delighted to have found your site via google which has led me to a banquet of jewelry. I am absolutely over the moon with the antique owl that I bought from you. It arrived yesterday and is a gift for my husband who loves owls. He is thrilled with it too - it is exquisite and looks even more beautiful than on the net (proving how meticulous you are in describing your jewelry). I found your site user friendly and can hardly wait to buy my next item. I want to thank you for quickly answering my emails - you have excellent customer service - and for mailing the owl to Canada so quickly. It arrived well packaged and undamaged. I have complete trust in you and will happily recommend you to my friends. Standing "O" for www.antiquejewellerycompany.com

I found the Antique Jewellery Company when I purchased a beautiful ring that I saw in a weekly blog post over on the Hairpin that highlights estate jewellery (http://thehairpin.com/2011/09/the-week-in-estate-jewelry-tiger-claws-secret-hearts-and-opal-madness) I was so pleased to find the company equally wonderful to do business with. Olly and Matt answered all my questions and took excellent personal care to make sure the ring shipped quickly and arrived safely stateside.

Having dreamt of a Georgian cluster ring for years, I spied one on the Antique Jewellery Company website – lovely clear pictures from several angles, good description and (fatal!) a friendly invitation to “arrange a viewing”. What a clever system! I emailed a request to see three rings on my next visit to London, and so I met Olly. A woman with an obvious passion for and deep understanding of her subject, she was able to tell me all about the rings – the differences between them, the shapes of the stones and so on – and even taught me how to use her loupe. It all felt very special and very much in keeping with such a significant purchase – and my fabulous Georgian ring sits on my finger as I type! My only concern is how to stay away from that tempting website…
