Established in 2012 Carus Jewellery is the online home to an exclusive and carefully curated collection of antique jewellery, from the Georgian, Victorian, Art Nouveau, Edwardian and Art Deco periods.
Antique jewellery is classically beautiful and a great investment to pass down through the generations. If the design of an antique piece is not to the liking of the new recipient, the materials can be reused to create a bespoke new design. Carus Jewellery’s carbon footprint is tiny, and they are very proud of this model of sustainability.
Beautiful, valuable items become family heirlooms.
My favourite pieces
Whether you’re looking for an engagement ring, accessories for the groom’s party (think tie pins and cuff links), presents for the bridesmaids (a bracelet perhaps?), the perfect accessories for the bride’s dress or gift for the groom (we LOVE the below signet ring as a gift for hub-to-be), you’re sure to find something perfect within Carus Jewellery’s online collection. Below are some of my favourites:
- Victorian 9ct gold citrine tie pin (£155) 2. Edwardian 9ct gold diamond signet ring (£2,450) 3. Edwardian aquamarine and split pearl bracelet (£1,700) 4. Retro pearl stud earrings (£80) 5. Edwardian drop earrings (£725) 6. Original Art Deco sapphire and diamond ring (£1,250). Featured image (top of page) is a Freshwater pearl necklace (£125).
It was beautiful then and it’s still beautiful now.
There is a very informative article on Carus Jewellery’s blog that I’d highly recommend reading if you’d like to know more about buying diamonds. It explains in detail the factors that that affect a diamonds beauty and therefore its value. It explains the four Cs – clarity, colour, carat and cut – and suggests setting a budget and prioritising the four Cs in order. As examples, cut is thought to have the greatest impact on a diamond’s beauty, and the colour difference between a D and E grade diamond cannot be seen to the naked eye but the price difference is substantial.
