ABOUT US

Elton Antique Jewellery is a family run company, curators of rare and coveted antique jewellery since 1976.

Jo Elton 


Jo founded Elton Antique Jewellery in 1976, since then she has curated and sold the finest antique jewellery often travelling the world (and London!) to seek out her one of a kind pieces of age and beauty.  She is fascinated by the precision, individuality, resilience and timeless beauty of jewellery craftsmanship of the past 300 years. 

She sees each piece as mini works of art from the eras of bygone times and gets immense joy from seeing people wearing a piece of jewellery from her collection - for her it is an important part of bridging the gap between the old and the new.

Jo spent her childhood in India, Sierra Leone and Kenya, moving to London when she was 17 years old.  Her experience of over 40 years in buying and selling antique jewellery saw her become a familiar face in the markets of Camden Passage, Bermondsey, Portobello, Brick Lane and Cutler Street. 

In 1976 she founded Elton Antique Jewellery, and the rest as they say is history. 
 
Piers Elton
 
Jo's son Piers grew up with his mothers business, surrounded by beautiful pieces of antique jewellery.  He spent much of his school holidays in his mothers shop intrigued by the intricacies of precious stones and their settings.  He developed a keen eye for spotting the unusual and unique laying the foundation for his future expertise. 

Before long Piers is helping his mother in seeking out rare one of a kind pieces of old, whilst always keeping a sharp eye out for beautiful antique engagement rings, and now considers antique jewellery his path in life.  He lives in Queens Park with his wife facialist Una Brennan and his favourite eras are Art Deco and the more modern decades of the 60's, 70's and 80's.

The Shop

In the totally relaxed atmosphere of their shop in Grays Antique Centre in the centre of London, Jo and Piers present to you their curation of the most coveted and timeless antique jewellery, we love spending the time with our customers finding the right piece.

Our collection is comprised of classic and unique pieces that date from the 18th century through the 1930s and onwards.  Every vintage jewel that enters our cases is carefully studied and vetted for authenticity of age and materials inspiring you to wear jewellery in a way that is timelessly modern.

We are here because we love these storied pieces and are fascinated by their resilience.  Our jewellery tells the story of things past and we delight in bridging the gap between old and new.
