Gemstone vintage rings
With an ever-expanding inventory of almost three thousand ancient, antique and vintage rings, at Berganza, we specialise in the rare and unusual. Appealing to consumers who are in search of something truly individual and one-of-a-kind piece of jewellery. Spanning across the centuries and incorporating countless stylistic influences, antique jewellery provides infinite options to those who are in search of something truly different.
Natural and untreated gemstones
Every single item of jewellery is set with labour-intensively hand cut diamonds or natural and unenhanced gemstones, often from famous historic mines long since exhausted. We are delighted to include in our vast compilation, jewellery set with exceedingly rare old mine diamonds from the earliest of diamond sources as well as natural and untreated gemstones such as Burmese rubies, Colombian emeralds and Kashmir, Ceylon and Burmese sapphires. These valuable unenhanced gemstones are matchless and show off exceptional natural colouration in a world dominated by gemstones which are routinely treated and can never attain the depth of colour that their natural counterparts exhibit.
Rare gem-set medieval pieces
We believe in offering only the highest quality pieces from each design period. Our stock includes Ancient Roman intaglio seal rings, Viking twisted rings, rare gem-set Medieval pieces, Georgian, ornate Victorian, elegant Edwardian, bold Art Deco and retro vintage designs from the 1940s and 1950s. Another speciality is antique and vintage one-off signed pieces of jewellery by the most famous of jewellery houses such as Cartier, Tiffany & Co., Oscar Heyman Brothers and Boucheron but to name a few. These pieces of jewellery flaunt the glamour of bygone eras and are highly sought after today.
Gemmology and history of gemstones
Our team of specialists combine experience, vision and practical expertise with academic excellence and are trained in all aspects of gemmology and history of jewellery design. This allows us to help our customers make informed choices when investing in jewellery pieces which in many cases will become their own heirloom. Our expertise in this area is unparalleled, and our shared passion for antique jewellery is incomparable to any other jewellers.
