Antique Fine Jewelry for Modern Times
About Sweet Gestures JewelsAs an avid collector of antique jewelry, I am so happy to share my collection with other jewelry fans.
Living in New York and London, I have access to the finest craftsmen and the best selection of antique pieces. And with my husband’s family in the jewelry business today in London’s Hatton Garden and on Bond Street for over 55 years and selling in the largest High Street department store, I’ve had incredible exposure to so many beautiful pieces. My Ruby Lane shop represents a nod to the estate pieces, but with the ability to make it relevant today.
Many of my necklaces have been reworked into simple but striking examples of timeless jewelry. Whether they are stick pins, or brooches or charms they reflect a period of time when the workmanship and detail were exacting.
I realize as so many fans of antique and vintage jewelry do that these pieces in many cases require some reworking or refashioning. The finesse of this type of work requires craftsmen who also have the same respect for the art of jewelry making as artisans of the past did. Perhaps that is why recycling, reimagining and revamping jewelry today is more popular than ever. Preserving beauty and history from the past is never a waste of time.
Please come and take a look at the many interesting pieces I have personally selected. New additions come along frequently as I am always out in the market looking
for new and interesting finds. In addition, if there is something that you are looking for specifically, don’t hesitate to get in touch and let me know. I have been able to source many unusual finds for my clients and I ‘d be happy to assist you if I can.
Please also know, you have my assurance of the quality that you find in my listings to be accurate. Pieces of jewelry are scrutinized carefully before they go out to you and should be in excellent condition. If in any event there is a problem or difference, I welcome the opportunity to discuss this and will do what I can to rectify the issue.
In cases, where an item might have surface wear that is apparent I will note that in my descriptions as well.
Lastly, I send all pieces of jewelry in luxurious suede pouches. Perfect for protecting your lovely piece of jewelry and also a lovely way to present a gift of love.
Thanks for shopping with me and I do hope you will enjoy the pieces as much as I have enjoyed finding them!
