Antique and Vintage jewellery is seldom in perfect or ‘new’ condition as age is inherent for it to be classified as such. Small scuffs or wear are considered an acceptable part of the appeal of an antique. Any stronger than usual wear or marks will be listed in the description and may (depending on its location) be visible in the photo.

Please read the description fully to insure that the condition meets your requirements. The image forms part of the description. Rings unsuitable for everyday wear will be listed as ‘delicate’ or ‘dress ring only’. If you have any questions regarding the suitability of a piece for your intended wear please contact us before purchase.


The French Jewel Box endeavours to provide listings that are accurate to the best of our knowledge. Unless otherwise stated all gemstone weights and grades are approximates calculated with the stones in the setting. We pride ourselves on accurate dating and authenticity by manufacture, design, hallmarks, gem cuts, styles, materials and experience. Dating and period attributions are precise in some cases, but due to constant overlap of fashions in time frames a ‘circa’ is commonly the most accurate. Whilst every care is taken to provide accurate & reliable information, commentary & other materials posted on our site are not intended to amount to advice on which reliance should be placed. We therefore disclaim all liability & responsibility arising from any reliance placed on such materials. We reserve the right to alter any listing at any time without notice. If we deem it necessary we may suspend access to our site, or close it indefinitely. Any of the material on our site may be out of date at any given time, & we are under no obligation to update such material.
