About me

I’m Sue Brown. Thank you for visiting my Website where I have many interesting rings to show you, plus other slightly ‘different’ items of jewellery to which I refer to as: 

QUIRKY JEWELS FROM THE PAST

How long have I been in my cherished business? Since 1974 but now I only show my pieces at certain quality antique fairs and  a proportion on certain websites. I am the sole owner of my business, the buyer and the seller and I am totally responsible for the authenticity, description and genuineness of any article of jewellery I sell, whether it is on my website, on LAPADA.org, on 1stdibs.com or any Antique Fair at which I attend. I exhibit at the two Fine Art and Antique Fairs which are held at Olympia, London and the LAPADA Antique Fair in Berkeley Square Mayfair London and at a few other select events in the UK and USA. I have a manager whose name is John, who is able to answer any questions or emails on my behalf, should I not be here to take your call.

So where did I learn my business? Well, like many other of my jewellery dealer contemporaries, in the busy and booming London street markets of Portobello, Bermondsey and Camden Passage. This was an exciting time for me, having arrived in the UK in 1971 and had not seen anything like this before. I am saddened to say that Camden is a shadow of its former self and Bermondsey is a tenth of its former glory and Portobello is under threat from creeping fashion outlets, so where to buy?? Online on certain websites that carry return guarantees, from dealers that you have grown to trust and from prime vetted Antique Fairs which will confirm the authenticity of their dealers merchandise.

 I hope you enjoy my website and if you find something that interests you, please enquire, without any obligation, by email or telephone, to find out more about the item and to be sure it is still available.
