Your shop for vintage ethnic and tribal jewelry
Our Service PledgeI treat my customers the same way I would like to be treated, with respect and appreciation. I research every item I list diligently and pack your order carefully and with love.
About UsAnteeka is all about bringing authentic tribal and ethnic pieces back to life to be loved again and worn again. I like to find unique pieces that will speak to a particular woman, one who is bold and confident.
For me vintage and antique tribal jewelry pieces are exquisite in their balance and use of color. I love to research their origin and their wearers and their now forgotten symbols. They were made with such care, often with very primitive tools. I like to think of Anteeka as contributing to a rescue mission: saving beautiful discarded pieces of jewelry from the dusty shelf and letting them shine again with meaning and a new sense of purpose. My clients vary but most are professional women, travelers who are just fond of strong statement pieces. I have also sold to private collectors, museums and film costume departments.
It started with my own love for the bold beautiful Bedouin tribal pieces. The jewelry bug bit me when I was quite young. As a child, I enthusiastically trailed my mother around the souks in search of unique items of jewelry. As I grew older, I expanded into collecting vintage and antique tribal jewelry from other parts of the world. My collection became too big and I decided to sell some of it. Over seven years ago, I started an online shop. I scour souks, flea markets and antique shops. I go to estate sales and auctions and love to find unique pieces and research their origins and how they were worn. I spend a great deal of time on research. I have online resources as well as books and most importantly, knowledgeable experts whose brains I pick when I reach a dead end in my research. I hope you will like what I've picked out for you.
