www.vintagepearls.co.uk is unique in offering a very limited collection of hand-made 1940 graduated vintage pearls. Subtle colours designed to suit any occasion that are a classic complement for wedding outfits, evening wear and business suits, our vintage pearls will also add an elegant touch to your favourite jeans. Pearl sizes that vary from 3mm to 8mm. Chokers, princess length and multiple strands.
All our pearls were part of a consignment found on the premises of a Birmingham jewellery manufacturer that closed at the turn of the century. Discovered with the pearls were invoices dated 1940 and 1941. The pearls were found strung on cotton ready to be made up into fine necklaces, as silk could not be used for commercial purposes during the war.
The contemporary owners of this consignment are committed to putting over thirty years of jewellery design and production into sharing these rare and unique pearls with a new generation. The results of this endeavour can be found throughout the site; we sincerely hope you enjoy viewing our classic, elegant range of pearl necklaces.
Should you not find what you are after, we are able to design one-off bespoke pieces or sets for special occasions or as unique gifts. Your favourite clasp can also be used.
We also offer a postage based restringing service. Your string of pearls may be looking a bit tired. The thread can become stretched and grimy, or you may have a broken string of pearls that need restringing. We can restring with a knot between each pearl for safety, or straightforward restringing with no knots.
