About UsWelcome to my shop where I sell French and English antique jewelry, art nouveau lockets lorgnette chains and silver bracelets being my favorite pieces .
I am a fully trained jeweler with 38 years experience in dealing in antique jewelry. I studied at Dartington college of arts in the early 70s where I learned my jewelry skills. I built up my own business until I owned 3 jewelers shops in England and a jewelry workshop where I trained young people to become successful jewelers in their own right. I ran these retail stores for 25 years. I have been registered with the London assay office with my own hallmark since 1974. I sold the retail shops to my staff in 2008 and moved to the coast with my family when I retired.
Since then I have been an online seller on eBay and Etsy and sell fine vintage silver jewelry and collectibles under the seller name Lyonesse4gems where I have built up an impeccable reputation and over 5000 combined positive feedback.
I love to find beautiful pieces in the Brocantes of France and the estate sales of romantic Cornwall to offer to discerning buyers. My best sources are the fine antiques fairs of Lyon in France also Montpellier and Avignon. These fairs are fun but tough ! you have to be prepared to wake at 5 am to get there in time for the best bargains.
I have a slight advantage in that my mother is Belgian and consequently I speak passable French
I hope you enjoy every little treasure I have to offer as much as I have enjoyed finding them.
