Antique And Vintage Jewellery From Kit Clayton Jewellery

I do have a love of antique jewellery, and as I get older I appreciate it more and more. There are so many reasons to buy antique and vintage jewellery. The history and heritage of a beautiful antique jewellery piece are incredibly interesting and the workmanship is often outstanding. So when Kit Clayton Jewellery approached me to review their website I was excited to see what delights I would come across. This post is in conjunction with Kit Clayton Jewellery, but as ever my thoughts and opinions are my own.

Kit Clayton Jewellery is run by Abigail Haslett and named after her grandmother Kit.

Abigail found that when she started working in the jewellery industry in 2014 that she had a real passion for gemstones, vintage and antique jewellery and thus Kit Clayton Jewellery was born. Since starting the company, which is now a family affair, Abigail has increased her knowledge of gems studying for various jewellery qualifications. She sources her jewellery far and wide and runs the jewellery company between Hatton Garden in London and Cheltenham in Gloucestershire.

She also strongly feels that buying pre-owned antique and vintage jewellery is an ethical choice and the packing is also sourced from recycled materials wherever possible. 

So now we know about the company, let's have a look at some of the beautiful jewellery they sell.

platinum and sapphire ring

 Platinum, Sapphire and Diamond Lozenge Ring, £1,325.00

My first choice from the Kit Clayton website is this stunning and unusual platinum, sapphire and diamond ring. Although not antique, the ring is made in the Art Deco style and is very striking with an emerald cut sapphire approx 1 carat in weight as the centre stone. 

Set in a platinum shank and surrounded with small round brilliant cut diamonds approx 0.2 ct in weight, this ring really is a show stopper.

art deco ring

Art Deco 14ct Gold & Old Cut Diamond Shield Ring £575.00

My second choice is this Art Deco 14 ct diamond and gold ring, most likely dating from the 1920s or 1930s.  What is special about this ring is the unique design, set in white gold with a detailed precious mill grain finish. It also has an old European cut diamond at the centre of the ring with an approx weight of 0.15 ct and two small rose-cut diamonds at opposite corners.

This ring is different from everything you will see on the high street and you know that you will probably never see a design like this again. A statement ring you can cherish forever.

violin necklace

Art Deco Platinum Diamond & Pearl Pendant Necklace £1,285.00

My third choice is this platinum, 18ct gold, diamond and pearl necklace in the design of a violin. Estimated to be made around the 1920s or 1930s the delicate necklace has mill grain platinum work around the edge, making i
t stand out as something special as well as being embellished with white pearls of a gorgeous lustre.

On a 17.5 inch platinum chain, with a box clasp and catch, this exquisite design is perfect as a gift for someone musical and again is a precious and unusual design you won't find elsewhere that's for sure! The workmanship is something else too, they really don't make jewellery like this any more.

vintage bangle

Vintage 9ct Gold Sapphire & Diamond Bangle £1,495.00

This incredible vintage 9ct gold, sapphire and diamond bangle is my last choice from the Kit Clayton Jewellery website. Made in the late 1980s, the sapphires and diamonds in this bangle really sparkle in the light. Between each sapphire sit two small round brilliant cut diamonds adding brightness and shine to the piece.

Fully hallmarked and with a solid clasp in excellent working order, this bangle would make a special gift for the loved one in your life or to celebrate a 45th wedding anniversary where sapphires are traditionally the gift.

  1. These pieces are absolutely stunning. There is something so special about vintage pieces, I have my Nana's wedding set and it's very very special, and somehow works with my style even though it's very different to my Nans (even when she was my age!) x
