Our Story

Our Story hands with rings

A bit of history

Gatsby Jewellery are a husband and wife team who have years of knowledge and experience in dealing in fine antique jewellery. My journey into the world of antique jewellery began when I started as an apprentice to a diamond dealer in Hatton Garden, the centre of Britain’s jewellery trade since medieval times. After a couple of years, I somehow managed in this dog-eat-dog industry to establish myself as a trader in The Garden in my own right.

Jewellery that tells a story

I was always drawn to the treasures of bygone times and quickly developed an eye for jewellery that tells a story, that has history, that was hand-created by craftsmen in an age before the mass production of gemstone rings.

Heirlooms of tomorrow

Heirlooms of tomorrow

Soon, accompanied by my hubby, I started travelling the country in search of rare pieces from the Victorian, Edwardian and Art Deco periods, as well as signed jewellery by designer houses such as Tiffany & Co. and Cartier, surely the heirlooms of tomorrow. The wares we discovered were always in high demand amongst the retailers in Hatton Garden.
