About Us
Welcome to Jewellery Detective! Our collection includes a range of jewellery from the Victorian period onward. We particularly love Art Deco jewellery and design.

As a LSE trained social anthropologist, my love of jewellery has developed through an interest in the 'social life' of jewels, in uncovering what they tell us about the social worlds they have inhabited over the years. I also feel that the jewels I sell should continue this social life, be loved and worn instead of languishing away in a drawer. Hence, I ensure that each of the jewels in our shop is fully wearable, with working clasps, secure necklace threading and a careful polish, ready to shine once more.

Great care is taken to protect our pieces: we are all about conservation and use only gentle materials such as Renaissance Wax, which was developed by the British Museum to protect valuable artifacts.

Many thanks for visiting! x
