Our Story

The Chelsea Bijouterie

The Chelsea Bijouterie is a dedicated on-line jewellery business.

We specialise in luxury vintage designer jewellery and fine antique jewellery from the Victorian, Edwardian and Art Deco periods

The Chelsea Bijouterie Ltd is a family-owned company

The business was started by me, Paula, and my husband Stanley in the early 80’s. We began dealing in antiques in Brighton when we were first married. We have both always had a passion for and a love of good design. Whether this is in architecture, furniture, clothes, jewellery, watches, accessories, cars or motorbikes.

In those early days, we started buying and selling antique furniture, china, silver & Art. However, my great love was for vintage clothes, handbags and jewellery. Having lived in London during the swinging sixties & seventies, I wore clothes from Biba, Mary Quant, Ossie Clark, and Vivienne Westwood and fabulous jewellery from Butler & Wilson, Kutchinsky and Grima. I have always been fascinated by the timeless beauty of antique jewellery. So little by little, we put all our energies into vintage jewellery and accessories to the exclusion of other antiques.

A Passion for Vintage Jewellery & Watches

During the 90s we moved to France and embraced its culture and interest in fashion & jewellery. This inspired us to call our business The Chelsea Bijouterie. From then on our business was antique jewellery, vintage designer jewellery and luxury watches.

We are always amazed at the fine workmanship exhibited in jewellery from the Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian, Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods. There is an immense pleasure to be found in looking at or even better wearing antique jewellery and designer pieces from renowned jewellers such as Cartier, Chanel, Tiffany, Chopard, Kutchinsky, Grima, Paloma Picasso, Elsa Peretti, Roberto Coin, Stephen Webster, Theo Fennell, Asprey of London Rolex, Omega, Baume et Mercier and many more.

Stanley is a great fan of all vintage watches. He has always admired the Omega Speedmaster and Seamaster vintage range while I prefer the classic watches from Cartier, Jaeger-LeCoultre & Rolex

Selling jewellery uniquely online allows us to offer beautiful and interesting pieces at competitive prices, whilst at the same time maintaining our very high standards. We have years of knowledge and experience in dealing in antique and designer jewellery.
