HISTORY & ART TO
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS & VISITORS SAY
Don't you agree there's something very special about
those who collect antique jewels, apparel and art? Beyond a keen
appreciation of beauty, they share an unusual sensitivity to the
past that connects them profoundly to all humanity, to our shared
fragility and our dreams of creating something that will prove of lasting
I'm privileged to meet so many of these remarkable
people, and deeply honored to have received their praise...
I enjoy your site so much and
consider it a museum of jewelry. ~ Anne W.
I love your site, the organization
of it is wonderful--making it a very good way to search by era &
style! ~Diana J.
Thanks a bunch, you responded
several times before any other merchants on Trocadero even emailed me once.
My groom's gift arrived yesterday,
and I picked it up this morning from the P.O. Not only did you pack
it with great care, the pin is even more beautiful than the
pictures! It is in wonderful condition. I can't say enough to thank
you. ~Trish S.
Thank you so much for catching me
up on your newsletters. What interesting information. I’m
wearing my new pink hearts necklace today and bracelets. Ohhh I love it!
I wanted to let you know that I
received the prints on Friday and they are perfect!!! I already know
exactly where they are going to go in my house, and can't wait to get them
framed! I will definitely be visiting your website again.
I am indeed loving the ivory
earrings--thanks again! ~Julie W.
I got the Art Deco white beaded bag

You are a wonder! Thank
you for all of the special care! Your communication to me has
been fabulous, the transaction speedy, etc. - that's not to mention all of
the 'special touches' like the gold lame and glitzy ribbon! Wow!
You should give lessons to other dealers on how to treat customers
with TLC! Had to tell you that your sash pin arrived in great shape AND I
gave it to my sister this past weekend! ( I just couldn't wait until
her birthday!) She loved it!! Of course, now that
means that I'll have to look for something else for her for her birthday.
Oh gee, I guess I'll have to do more jewelry shopping! ~Kate K.
Many thanks for the wonderful
packaging! The brooch is indeed beautiful and I am very happy with it! It
is just as you described and I will certainly treasure it for years to
come!! I especially appreciated your elegant and kind letter. Take care and thanks again!
The bracelet is, as promised,
simply fantastic and just as sharp as depicted! I will wear it lots! ~Roxanne
Ted blew me away with a dazzling
evening out and a marriage proposal with the ring I most wanted... It
looks beautiful and feels great. I thank you for sharing this
wonderful find with us. ~Lizzie & Ted K.
The earrings are simply wonderful
and I thank you so much. ~Cindy M.
I was like a little kid opening a
Christmas present today! I am overwhelmed! ~Laurie M.
I just opened the box with my opera
coat today! WOW! WOW! WOW! I cannot believe how absolutely gorgeous the
coat is! The velvet is virtually perfect, as are the beading and sequins!
Truly, the only parts which need restoring are the chiffon insets and the
yoke of the lining... Utterly amazing! My mother, a sometime model
who loves clothes with a passion (and has the most uncanny shopping
instinct for finding the perfect item you tell her you are looking for...
and finding the item ON SALE) was struck speechless. THANK YOU SO MUCH! ~Darca
Had to let you know - Kristi loved
it! Thanks so much. And she also loved the little note you put
in there for her. All your considerations made it a happy experience
for both Kristi and myself. I'll look forward to the next time! ~Mady
Ring arrived today. It
is a wonderful old piece. I really like the color of the peridot!
THEY ARE GORGEOUS! I love the ring
and earrings. Thank you. :-) ~Barbara S.
I just love the pendant
Erin!!! And guess what? The "other" Erin (my
teen/monster/angel/daughter), the one who's only jewelry interests are big
stainless steel "gothic" style stuff? Well, she just gushed
over the Chrysoprase pendant! Turns out she likes that color green,
and to my astonishment, she even mentioned the "style" of
it. She is wearing it out to her Birthday dinner tonight.There
may be hope for another "jewelry hound" in the family yet.
My niece is here today and we picked up the box this afternoon. We really like all the items, but especially the silver ring! She identified the hallmarks as 1830 from the book we have and is going to borrow the ring from me regularly she likes it so much! The pin and earrings will look smashing together - thanks! These items are really the kind I want to collect and I am glad to add them to my collection! I will keep in touch and check in with your site in the future.~Virginia T.
I received the jodhpurs today and I want to thank you very much. Your service was amazing, your replies were quick, and you portrayed the item accurately. Thanks again!~Michelle M.
