Explore Our Collection of Rare Antique and Vintage Jewellery

Here at Berganza, we are particularly enthusiastic about our collection of rare vintage jewellery. If you’re looking for something beyond comparison, our selection is sure to include something you won’t be able to forget about. Each piece of jewellery here has its own unique history. 

These pieces have generated a lot of interest, as a result of their extremely rare nature, unique designs, iconic time periods and breathtaking materials. One particular type of jewellery that generates a significant amount of interest are ancient rings. Firstly, these beautiful pieces have withstood thousands of years. Ancient jewellery is from the period 3000 BCE-500 AD and offers a slice of ancient history, often used to demonstrate a person’s status. They are pieces of art from antiquity, which has generated a contemporary following in the past couple of years. This is largely a result of the timeless beauty that so many pieces of rare antique jewellery hold, enabling them to be passed down from generation to generation.

Edwardian jewellery is also a beautiful section of our rare antique jewellery collection. Edwardian jewellery is from the period of history named after King Edward (1901-1914) and these stunning pre-war pieces are categorised by themes of femininity and fluidity.

This era was known for its iconic jewellery shapes and designs, offering an expanse of incredibly beautiful pieces to the world of rare vintage jewellery. One extremely popular style throughout the Edwardian era was cluster jewellery, first developed during the Georgian era and maintaining popularity well into the 1970's. Our collection of rare vintage jewellery features wonderful cluster designs that have stood the test of time, in terms of both popularity and structural integrity.

If you’re looking for something truly one-in-a-million, this collection of pieces that generate the most interest will have something for you. If one of our pieces of rare antique jewellery catches your eye, contact us here online, or at our Hatton Garden residence.
