Last Minute Christmas Gifts: Antique, Vintage & Designer Jewellery Starting at £650
Since our modest beginnings as a stall in The Heart of Hatton Jewellery Emporium, we’ve prided ourselves on helping our customers to choose the right piece of jewellery for the right person, at a reasonable price. Today, we offer one of London’s largest selections of antique and vintage jewellery as well as contemporary and pre-owned designer pieces, and our philosophy hasn’t changed. Over a decade later, we still offer a broad selection of beautiful jewellery to suit all tastes and budgets.
The shopping days leading up to Christmas may be dwindling, but we still have hundreds of stunning antique, vintage, contemporary, and pre-owned designer pieces in stock. Whether you’re shopping for a gift for yourself or someone special, or you’re searching for the perfect ring to accompany your perfect proposal, we can work within your budget to help you to choose the perfect piece.
A gift of jewellery is always gratefully received. Here’s a small selection of the pieces you’ll find online and in the festive window of our Hatton Garden shop…
