I have had a lifelong love affair with jewellery. My collecting started at an early age spending my pocket money on buying silver rings. The passion never stopped and jewellery was clearly in my DNA from the outset.
I had an insatiable appetite for learning about all types of jewellery and this gave me an exceptional eye for style and quality. I started buying and selling in 1987 and then in 2012 my obsession brought my career as a Business Analyst to a close, Jewels Past was born and I turned to dealing full-time in jewellery both Online and at quality Antique Fairs across the country.
A lifetime of experience and knowledge has given me an ability to seek out quality yet affordable items from the great Designers and those unsigned beauties from the 1920s -1970s. My stand at antique fairs is often singled out for the quality of the stock and the stunning presentation.
This has led to extraordinary opportunities such as providing jewellery for Sir Kenneth Branagh’s productions of ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ in 2017 and the soon to be released follow up ‘Death on the Nile’. Authentic items for the period were selected by the Film Producers and I am very proud to see my jewellery being worn by great actors in iconic films.My mission is always to provide high quality, affordable vintage and costume jewellery so it can be enjoyed by likeminded people, adding to their style, character and personal presentation – all the things that jewellery can do!
