Douce  I buy antique and modernist jewellery. I specialise in unusual and designer silver pieces. All photos are mine. Inquiries are welcome.

"In and out" earrings designed by Adrian Olabuenaga for ACME Studio.
He was the founder of ACME in 1985, and his jewellery designs were included in the "Memphis designers for ACME" collections as suggested by Ettore Sottsass.
I know 1985 is only 32 years ago. But I personally believe, that in the future people will talk about ACME and Memphis as a very important artistic movement. Just like we talk nowadays about the secessionists, the Bauhaus, the Wiener Werkstatte and other visionaries and artists who united to create something new and beautiful!

Candy for your ears, and fingers, and throat and arm ... it took me ages to get the whole set and now I'm selling it!
This is from Finland, designed by Hannu Ikonen for Valo-Koru.
It is called "Reindeer moss". The whole set is silver. You often see it in bronze too.
There are many different versions of the rings, of the necklace, of the earrings. They vary in size, or shape, so much so that it often seems each piece is unique.
It does look fabulous on. The earrings have the original screw fittings but could easily be converted.
Available now.
Dm me for details.

Celtic jewellery by Alexander Richie: a galleon pendant with its original very very rare chain.
The pendant is signed with the conjoint AR and Iona.
The links of the chain have galleons on one side and crosses on the other.
They date from around 1920 and are very desirable.
I absolutely love Alexander Richie's jewellery. And I am wearing the most fantastic necklace by him today.
I will post of photo of it one day.
The chain and galleon are available for sale.
Dm me for details..

A lovely, lovely ring from the Artificer's Guild.
The artificer's guild was formed in 1901 by Nelson Dawson and later taken over by Montague Fordham, but throughout, Edward Spencer was the chief designer and later director of the guild.
He died in 1948 and the guild shut down soon after.
This very pretty moonstone ring is a good example of the silver jewellery that came out of their workshops.

Fantastic citrine brooch by Sibyl Dunlop.
Unusually this is actually signed.
Its a piece she would have made later in her career. The early jewellery is hardly ever signed.
The stone is fabulous, most probably cut in Idar-Oberstein in Germany, which was one of the leading gem-cutting centers of the world. It is the purest golden yellow colour.
The whole brooch is of very high quality and available for sale.
Dm me for more details if you are interested.

Very pretty English arts and crafts opal pendant.
As most English arts and crafts jewellery it is not signed and I don't quite know who to attribute this one to.
But I like it a lot. It ticks all the right arts and crafts boxes: unique, entirely hand made, with scrolls and wires and hammered silver balls. Set with opals, and probably on the original chain with a small hand made T clasp.
Sold

Enamelled brooch by Nora Gulbrandsen for David Andersen.
This is part of the rock carving collection. It comes in 4 different colours.
The back is marked: rock carving from Norway 1000 to 500 BC.
It's an absolutely brilliant design, probably a Viking boat. So cool to think it was done around 3000 years ago!
