Period Jewellery

Our collection of jewellery varies in age from the early 18th Century through to more modern pieces. We have categorised our jewellery into different periods. Each period has many different designs and characteristics. These periods include Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian, Art Deco, Retro, Mid-Century and Modern.

Georgian, Victorian & Edwardian

1714 - 1914

Pieces of jewellery from these eras were handmade, making the quality of each piece variable. Needless to say, quality pieces from these periods are rare, making them unique and highly prized.

Art Deco & Mid-Century

1920 - 1945

Influenced by African, Egyptian and Japanese themes, Art Deco jewellery is famous for its geometric designs, sharp lines, and bright colours. 

Vintage & Retro

1950 - 1980

Inspired by Hollywood, Retro jewellery is colourful, bold and elaborate. Commonly worn were large cocktail rings, bracelets, watches, necklaces and charm bracelets.

'Superb antique dealers. I have found Howell 1870 to be totally committed to their business and completely honest. They sell high quality items at sensible prices. I can recommend them without hesitation.'
