Explore Our Collection of Antique Designer Jewellery

Our experts work tirelessly to help curate our collection of antique designer jewellery pieces. Their incredible knowledge and sensitive eye can select the most impressive choices. These beautiful pieces have been chosen for this selection due to their incredible value, artisan design and astounding materials. 

These expert choices have been taken from a wide range of history. In this collection, we have displayed multiple Victorian pieces. Victorian Jewellery gets its name from the monarch on the throne when it was created, Queen Victoria (1837-1901). There are many incredibly unique features from Victorian jewellery, and it truly deserves its recognition from leading antique designer jewellery experts. Jewellery pieces from Victorian society included a lot of elegant floral motifs and artistically impressive metalwork imitating foliage. Brooches were an incredibly popular style of antique designer jewellery in Victorian England. 

One of the other factors our experts took into consideration when curating this collection was impressive gemstone cuts. We have an extensive collection of stunning antique designer rings that are technically breathtaking. Our cluster rings are some of the most incredible of our expert selections. Cluster rings typically consist of a group of smaller gemstones surrounding one large gemstone, and were incredibly popular during the Edwardian period. Vintage cluster rings often display the finest expertise in metal work, and beautiful gemstone arrangement. Their value and technical beauty makes them a favourite of antique designer jewellery experts.

A jewellery expert is someone who is able to highly research and evaluate antique jewellery pieces. They are often well-versed in antique designer jewellery. They are able to heavily research the provenance of an antique piece, and examine the details which makes the piece unique. Experts in antique designer jewellery are able to evaluate pieces extremely accurately due to their knowledge of provenance and analysis of the features.

Jewellery experts have many things to consider when looking at antique designer jewellery. They carefully study evidence of provenance (where the piece comes from, who made it, etc.) They do this by looking carefully at any engravings or paperwork to determine the provenance. They also look at special and rare features of the piece in order to value it.

With antique designer jewellery, it’s important to keep it clean. Cleaning your antique pieces correctly is a great way to preserve them and keep their value. Rinse your antique designer jewellery carefully under warm water. Use a very soft brush to dislodge any dirt, and if it needs extra cleaning, use a mild washing-up liquid. Make sure you rinse your jewellery. Here at Berganza, we offer complimentary annual cleaning for life with every purchase, so your jewellery can be taken care of.

There are some particular gemstones which are predominant in antique designer jewellery. Diamonds, rubies, emeralds and sapphires were the most popular jewels in antique designer rings. Vintage designer rings, such as art deco engagement rings, include more diamonds. However, there are a range of gemstones available across our selection of antique designer jewellery.

For many people, their antique designer jewellery is a careful investment. It reaches a stage where many people want to get their return on their vintage antique jewellery pieces. Making sure to consult experts on antique designer jewellery can make sure that you get a fair price for your jewellery. This is true whether it was an inherited piece or bought as an investment. Here at Berganza, our expertise on vintage designer jewellery means we are ideal for this. If you have a piece of antique designer jewellery that you’d like to sell to us, contact us at
