We operate from Sweden. Always insured tracked shipping. Worldwide $10. Shipping time US 6-9 business days, Europe 4-7 business days, Asia/Australia 10-14 business days. Save with combined shipping if you buy more then one item. -Wait for a revised invoice or we will immediately refund any shipping above $10USD.

The Scandinavian region has produced distinctive jewelry since at least the time of the Vikings...near the end of the 19th century, Scandinavian artisans looked to indigenous craft-oriented arts to inform their designs: arts and crafts / skønvirke...World War II led Scandinavian designers to simplify forms and adopt the cleaner lines; Scandinavian modernism.

Condition terms defined.

Excellent: Any flaws on the front are only visible when viewed closely at certain angles or under a loupe, and all flaws are minor, like surface scratches or minor tarnishing.

Great: Minor flaws are visible when looking normally at the piece but the flaws are still insignificant to the enjoyment of the piece, like some tarnish on the front. Under close inspection through a loupe there may be a micro-chip off a stone or a slight crack, but those will be described in the condition section and will not be eye-visible.

Good: There may a crack, chip, strong tarnish, damage to the back of the piece, but overall the piece can still be enjoyed. There will always be a full description of the condition.

Fair to Poor: We very very seldom sell these pieces, but in the rare circumstances that we do, there will be an even fuller and more explicit description.

If in some very special heaven there is a register of the things which people have given each other, small silver boxes must rank high on the list. Men of all ranks and stations have given them to each other. Women gave special silver boxes to their fathers and loved ones. Kings have used them to convey gratitude to courtiers and honour to ambassadors. States and cities, grateful for rescue from sacking or oblivion, have bestowed them upon generals and admirals. Heroic deeds have been commemorated with them, secrets confined to their hidden panels. Most of them have change hands many times, and the tiniest of them will at some time or other have perhaps carried an intolerably heavy cargo of joys or sighs.

Can't seem to fin feedback entries for all 4 of the pendants I received, but they were all excellent quality and in great shape, as is usual with my orders from antiquesilverboxes.
Trustpilot review starsOct 16, 2018 10:42
Very nice brooch that arrived swiftly in a nice box. I´m very pleased with it as I already have a necklace with 30 amethysts, a ring and earrings in the exact same style. The small size of the brooch makes it very easy to wear.
Trustpilot review starsOct 13, 2018 19:35
Beautiful, delicate item, safely delivered. I have come across the seller by chance, while searching for a particular type of pendant , and afterwards I have bought several unrelated items , which I have been very pleased with. The seller is very professional, prompt and patient. He exudes interest in and enthusiasm about his work and likely hobby. He also has a great sense of humor. Furthermore he seems quite open, direct and flexible . He subsequently does not give you the feeling that he may try to sell you unwanted crap(). I can only highly recommend the seller.

This a beautiful ring with a perfect moonstone. I do want to say as a side note, I have purchased from this seller multiple times and have never been disappointed. More often than not, the jewelry exceeds my expectation in quality and beauty. His pricing is more than reasonable. Not only do the items arrive quickly, considering it’s an international shipment - the packaging is clean and well presented. Thank you for being such an awesome seller.

Hi! Thanks so much for the delightful ring! The moss agate is full of light and the colors of autumn... that is, in my New England countryside. Your photos are always sharply focused. I rely most of all, though, on the photos of the pieces as they lie in your hand, giving instant awareness of scale! Thanks for this and all my other treasures from your shop! Anna in FL

Trustpilot review starsMar 28, 2018 16:38
This seller has an incredible selection of vintage Scandinavian jewelry and incredible customer service to match. Prices, including those for shipping, are reasonable, too! This means items sell quickly. Indeed, the only reason my recent purchase (two incredible bronze Finnish modernist rings) has been my only purchase is because so many of the things from this shop that I've added to my wish list have sold before I could get to them! More good news, though: the seller is always adding to the inventory.
Trustpilot review starsMar 19, 2018 23:01

I have now made several purchases from Mr. Niklasson, and found that I had not left a review yet. He is very knowledgeable about what he sells, does meticulous research, and offers unique items at very reasonable prices. I bought a David Anderson pendant, a bracelet (a gift), and a pair of earrings. In all 3 cases, the pieces were shipped almost immediately, and arrived in Virginia with no problems whatsoever. If you hesitate about buying from an overseas shop, you need not be concerned about Antiquesilverboxes. Mr. Niklasson knows what he is doing. In addition to his shop, he has a web site with background information about Scandinavian jewelry designers. Very interesting and educational. I highly recommend this shop. Elisabeth Springer
