If only London wasn’t 3,300 miles away. Antique sterling silver is a great investment. Serving pieces make great gifts for weddings, anniversaries, Christmas, etc. Prices here are very reasonable. The owner Piers Rankin is as nice as can be. He has a lot of patience and will help you find something appropriate. His shop has been here for years. Never do I stop in London without an excursion to buy things from Piers!
Place rating: 5 London, United Kingdom
This shop is tiny and is filled with hundreds of wonderful necklaces, bracelets, rings, hair pin boxes, earring boxes and the like. I went in here with the intention of buying a piece of jewelery for my sister and I came out with two bracelets and a recently printed bank statement to remind me of how much money I didn’t have to spend on fabulous jewelery. I think everything is second hand(not that this matters — you will be so startled by the sheer volume of what feel like hidden treasures you won’t care) but that doesn’t mean the prices are low. They are as you would expect, however the kind lady who runs this… errm…glass cupboard(this is probably a more suitable description than a shop) will barter with you. A hidden gem full of hidden gems.
