A passion for antique jewellery, gems and curiosities.
About Kit Clayton Jewellery
Our Service PledgeAll jewellery arrives with a tailored gemstone card card, and a written appraisal is provided for all pieces priced at £1000 or more. Receipts and appraisals are provided in GBP.
As gemstones cannot safely be removed from antique jewellery, all carat weights, colour grades and clarity grades are our very best estimates. Metals and stones are checked for authenticity, and any treatments disclosed.
We aim to be as eco-friendly as possible, so unless we state that the piece comes with an antique case, your jewellery will arrive in a modern box made from recycled card.
About UsWelcome to my antique and vintage jewellery shop! My name is Abigail and Kit Clayton Jewellery has been set up as a result of my passion for gemstones and historical jewellery.
I have been working as a jeweller since 2014, and this role quickly turned into a fascination with antique and vintage pieces. You can buy antique jewellery from me with complete confidence - not only do I have a ton of experience, I have also completed The Gemmological Association of Great Britain's Foundation Gemmology Course, their Diamond Diploma Course (practical passed, theory exam pending - wish me luck!), and will soon tackle their Gemmology Diploma..
So who is Kit Clayton? I have named the business after my grandmother - she never had enough money to own anything other than costume jewellery but she loved and treasured it like it was real gold and diamonds. This shop is my tribute to her.
I am fastidious in the examination and description of the pieces I sell, and which I source from all over the UK and Europe. The main focus at Kit Clayton is antique and vintage jewellery, but I do sometimes source pre-owned contemporary pieces if they are particularly lovely. The product description will always be very clear so you know the age of the piece you are purchasing.
Kit Clayton operates between London and Cheltenham. For security reasons, there is no premises you can visit, but I do offer returns within 14 days should you change your mind about your purchase. I want you to buy with complete confidence! Returns for UK customers are free, returns from overseas are at the purchasers cost.
Buying pre-owned jewellery is an ethical consumer choice, and i've tried to reflect that in our packaging by sourcing as much recycled material as possible.
I hope you enjoy browsing Kit Clayton Jewellery and please don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions.
