About Jewels Collecting Dust.

On these pages you will find an eclectic mix of Gold Silver Diamonds Gemstones and Paste jewellery.  The vast majority of items I deal in are antique and vintage.

I am both a dealer and collector of Fine Jewellery, Silver, and Costume Jewellery. I buy what I love so this website reflects my own personal taste as well as what I deal in.

Most of the items here are for sale, although a few pieces shown are taken from my own personal collection and hence are marked not for sale.

Whether you come here to browse, research, or buy you are very welcome.

Many of these items are still under research so if you can add any further information about anything you see here then please drop me a line, I would be very pleased to hear from you.
