About Mayveda Vintage JewelleryWE COLLECT ORIGINAL, ONE OF A KIND PIECES SELECTED FOR ITS QUALITY, PERIOD CHARACTERISTICS, CRAFTSMANSHIP & MOST IMPORTANTLY STYLE.
MAYVEDA - we are a vintage and antique jeweller by mother and daughter Tiffany & Gillian. Our collection of jewellery is sourced in England, encompassing hand selected pieces that depict a certain era, from antique Georgian jewellery, Victorian jewellery, Edwardian Jewellery and vintage Art Deco jewellery including the Forties, Fifties and Sixties to the retro decades of the Seventies and Eighties. Each piece is selected for its quality, period characteristics, craftsmanship and style.
Mayveda Comyn was our great, great grandmother. She was born in 1872 when Queen Victoria was on the throne, a teenager during the Edwardian era, lived through two world wars and passed away at a grand age in the early 1950’s. Her mother, Maria Stoken, was an opera singer, performing in London and Paris. Maria’s husband, Rawdon Hastings was an old Harrovian antique dealer, living and conducting his business from their Mayfair home. Mayveda enjoyed a privileged upbringing, eventually meeting and marrying Charles Bradshaw, a stockbroker.
Mayveda was left a large box containing her own and her mother’s jewellery to her daughter. Her daughter passed it in turn to her eldest daughter and, eventually, down through the years to us – our inspiration for a lifelong obsession with vintage and antique jewellery and the inspiration for MAYVEDA.
Mayveda’s taste was eclectic – her collection showed the many different genres she wore over the years, but always displaying the quality and style that characterise the best in vintage and antique pieces.
We have been collecting our vintage and antique jewellery in London and Suffolk for many years. We hope that you appreciate the fine workmanship, style and value in the many pieces we find, not present in today’s mass-produced replicas.
Our jewellery collection has been featured in Vogue Italia shot by Miles Aldridge, Vogue Korea, Elle, Cosmopolitan, AnOther Magazine, You and Your Wedding magazine, Country and Townhouse.
We both hope you enjoy our collection and would really like to hear from you.
