A Bygone Era

At D J Massey & Son we specialize in unusual and interesting antique and vintage jewellery and curios, offering you the opportunity to purchase a wholly individual and unique piece.

Come and view our mesmerizing array of Victorian and Edwardian jewels – luxuriant rich wine red garnets, vivid opals, diamond set early wristwatches, rose gold chains and bracelets, intricate filigree work and seed pearl set rings and pendants.

The Arts and Crafts movement is represented by simple natural  motifs incorporated into brooches and necklaces often with more unusual gemstones such as Moonstone, Corals and Peridots.

Baroque pearls – individual organic gems-whose shape and characteristics inspired the jeweller to create one off design themes such as birds and animals where the pearl forms the body of the animal.

Top quality carved Shell and Coral Cameos, Micromosaic and miniature painting – unique works of art that can be worn as a jewel!

Enamelling techniques go back to ancient times and feature in many of our antique jewels and showcase the skills required to apply these in a myriad of colours.  Enamels also feature on silver bowls and teaspoons, compacts and card cases.

Please feel welcome to call in and be enthralled by our varied selection which we have amassed over decades and relive the nostalgia of a bygone era!
