About UsWelcome to Nectar - a personal selection of antique and vintage jewellery with the accent on cameos. I live in the UK and have been buying and selling since 2005 and keep a small, but essentially dynamic private collection from which I also sell.
I love antique cameos for their minutely detailed, sculptural quality and enthralling subjects drawn mainly from Greek and Roman mythology. Through my Shop I aim to offer Ruby Lane customers choice pieces across a wide price range - all they need is the discerning eye.
I take great care in my photography and descriptions to give as full and accurate an idea of my items as possible and will describe any faults I see. I’m always happy to answer any questions and to combine shipping wherever possible on items bought together, so please ask. I also offer free shipping on some items - please check the individual listings for details.
The inspiration for my shop name came to me from a favourite nineteenth-century Italian lava cameo in my collection depicting Hebe, Greek goddess of youth with her father, Zeus, in the guise of an eagle. As cup-bearer to the gods, Hebe is holding a cup of nectar for the eagle (who is also king of the gods) to drink from. Whatever it is that draws you to Nectar here on Ruby Lane, I hope that you feel refreshed by what you see and will find something you love!
