Shopping vintage jewellery can be a frustrating and often expensive experience. Whether you’re going from one estate sale to another, one antique shop to another, or scouring the internet, the hunt to find perfect vintage rings can take months if not years. And when you do find the piece you can’t live without, it might be difficult coming up with the right amount of cash to claim ownership.
However, one retailer in Toronto Canada, Cynthia Findlay Antiques, took a fresh approach when she opened up shop, curating antique rings, bracelets, necklaces, and other jewellery and bringing them together in one location. This means that customers can say goodbye to hunting from one shop to another, and can instead take their time exploring a single location. The best part? You don’t have to travel to Canada or be a resident of the country to see her impressive collection.
Unlike most antique retailers, Cynthia Findlay Antiques has a powerful website featuring high-quality photos of her most precious gems. Scouring estate sales and other secret spots, Cynthia Findlay finds the most unique vintage pieces from around the world and discovers the time period and sometimes even the story behind each piece. Her collection includes pieces from nearly every genre of antiques. While she specializes in antique and vintage jewellery (including art deco rings), she also carries fine sterling silver, art glass, porcelain, and ceramics. Looking for decorative art? She carries a large selection of decorative art, too.
